- Is the JCPOA Iran nuclear deal still a valid contract when America refuses to abide by it? IMO, it is legally no longer binding on Iran. Ie. the contract is VOIDed. Now that the USA is starting to re-institute sanctions (again voiding the contract) how are the rest of the world, especially Europe, to react to such sanctions? If Europe continues to be a US vassal state, then the JCPOA agreement is meaningless. We may be heading towards a showdown between USA and Europe. There is every likelihood that Europe will breakaway from American hegemony.
- For the JCPOA Iran agreement to be a legally binding contract, a new agreement based on the JCPOA will have to be signed IMO. We may see the appearance of: Covenant of 1 Week, of Daniel’s prophecy. This agreement is quite obviously a peace treaty.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, commented on developments over the Iranian nuclear deal with his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif in Moscow on Monday, suggesting that “the European triumvirate, China, Iran and Russia have announced their commitment to stick to the JCPOA provisions.” “Unfortunately, we see again that Washington seeks to revise key international arrangements,” noted Lavrov referring to the US’s recent withdrawal from the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) agreement, also known as the Iran nuclear deal. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, on his part, expressed his regret over the US’s “objection to international norms and rules,” adding that it has already become “the US government’s habit.” Zarif said that the JCPOA’s balance of commitments between all the parties to the deal has been “disrupted” after the US decided to walk away from the agreement.
Underlining the main objective of a series of talks with countries which are parties to the JCPOA, Zarif said that it “is to get reassurances that the interests of the Iranian people ensured by the JCPOA will be upheld.” Lavrov, on his part, stressed that “Russia as well as the other parties to this deal including China and the European countries, also have their legitimate interests, which are enshrined in this document and approved by the UNSC.” United States President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that the US is determined to walk away from the JCPOA, which was put in place in 2015, between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, US, Russia, China, the UK and France plus Germany.
