Donald Trump called it the worst deal ever. The U-S president decided a year ago to pull out of the Iran nuclear agreement, which imposed limits on Tehran’s nuclear activities. Trump then reimposed sanctions against Iran, and recently extended them to threaten those countries still party to the deal. Iran’s now reacted, warning the UK, France, Germany, China, and Russia, it’ll step up uranium production unless they meet their commitments within 60 days. Russia is putting the blame on what it calls ‘lamentable’ behaviour from the U-S, while EU leaders are warning Iran of possible consequences. Can the deal be renegotiated and revived?
