On Monday, the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader finally responded to the US decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.
Ali Khamenei’s remarks came nearly four weeks after President Trump announced that the US would no longer be a party to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and after European leaders were unable to offer the regime guarantees that US sanctions would not affect their trade relations.

Following the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, many European countries began investing in Iran. Being threatened by new US sanctions, most of these companies are now going to succumb to US pressures.
The United States is going to impose ‘the strongest sanctions in history’ on the Iranian regime, as put by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The threat would imply that all companies and financial institutions that have entered into ‘forbidden business’ with the Iranian regime will also have to pay the consequences.
The US has begun imposing new sanctions on the Iranian regime following its decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA.
On May 21, describing US policy on Iran, Secretary Pompeo stated: “This sting of sanctions will be painful if the regime does not change its course from the unacceptable and unproductive path it has chosen to one that rejoins the League of Nations. These will indeed end up being the strongest sanctions in history when we are complete.”
On Wednesday, May 9, 2018, from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm, the National Council of Resistance of Iran-U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US) will host a panel of leading subject-matter experts to discuss the missile program of Iran, its ties with the nuclear weapons program, its threatening impact in the region and ways to counter it.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: My fellow Americans,
Today, I want to update the world on our efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
The Iranian regime is the leading state sponsor of terror. It exports dangerous missiles, fuels conflicts across the Middle East, and supports terrorist proxies and militias such as Hezbollah, Hamas, the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
One of the most important international issues in recent weeks is the pending decision by the US President on whether to remain or withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal known as the JCPOA. During their visits to the White House, France’s President and Germany’s Chancellor pressed President Trump not to withdraw as he has hinted he would do.
