As per report from Washington, President Donald Trump is set to reveal his decision on whether to keep the U.S. in the Iran deal, a move that could determine the fate of the 2015 agreement that froze Iran’s nuclear program. Meanwhile the announcement is set to cap more than a year of deliberation and negotiation that has at time pitted Trump against some of his closest aides and key American allies.
Presently Trump is facing a self-imposed May 12 deadline over whether to uphold the 2015 nuclear agreement, which he long has criticized. Moreover the president has signaled he will pull out of the pact by the deadline unless it is revised, but he faces intense pressure from European allies not to do so.
Further the president has been the subject of an intense lobbying effort by American allies to maintain the agreement, with British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson making a last-ditch appeal to the administration in a visit to Washington this week. Accordingly the European leaders say that they are open to negotiating a side agreement with Iran, but the existing framework must remain untouched for that to happen.
