London, 17 Apr - With Donald Trump’s final deadline on the Iran nuclear deal fast approaching, European leaders are scrambling to save the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) through last-minute meetings with Trump, rather than actually agreeing to fix the flaws of the deal.

In late April, both French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will visit the White House to persuade Trump to change his mind about the fate of the nuclear deal, but this will not work.

London, 13 Apr - The United States Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has hinted at "very strong" US sanctions on Iran as the final deadline for the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers approaches.

During testimony before a House of Representatives appropriations subcommittee on April 11, Mnuchin said that these measures would include sanctions against Iran and also any entities that do business with the nation. He said that these sanctions would strongly affect the Iranian economy.

London, 11 Apr - Recently North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met with Chinese President Xi Jinping, which some believe could defuse the tension between North Korea and the US, including the White House, who said they were “cautiously optimistic” about the talks and the United Nations who handled the trip as a “positive” development.

Some, however, are wondering how this meeting and China’s planned meetings with South Korea and the US may affect Iran.

London, 12 Apr - On Wednesday, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that a decision by US President Donald Trump not to renew sanctions relief for Iran on May 12 would not necessarily mean the United States had withdrawn from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, however, it’s not clear what Mnuchin meant by his comment. Still, it seems to signal that the White House administration does not believe that the agreement will necessarily collapse if Trump chooses not to extend US sanctions relief to Iran.

London, 04 Apr - With the appointment of John Bolton as White House National Security Adviser — the ascension of a “hawk” — the nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), between Iran and world powers appears likely to end. Europe may determine whether the deal survives if US President Trump is prepared to accept a real fix, and if negotiations offer one.

Trump laid out three conditions that the Europeans must meet if the U.S. is to remain in the nuclear deal last January. If the Europeans do not agree to these demands by May 12th, he will impose powerful economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic. These demands include:
