iran nuclear deal
This week, Europe called out Iran's breach of the 2015 nuclear deal. Now, Iran is threatening European forces in the Middle East.
Britain, Germany, and France warned Iran that they might re-impose sanctions on its already struggling economy, if it doesn't get back in compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal.
Iran's Supreme Leader warned of "harsh retaliation" after a U.S. airstrike killed Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force.
Days after UK Marines seized an Iranian tanker that was reportedly violating sanctions, Iran appears to have retaliated.
The Pentagon wants to put together a military coalition to protect tankers passing through crucial shipping lanes near Iran and Yemen.
Tehran warns Europe that unless Iran gets relief from U.S. sanctions, it will resume enriching uranium in violation of the nuclear deal.
The breach threatens to kill the 2015 nuclear deal, which the U.S. has already abandoned.
“There is a swathe of targets available to [Iran] with very simple tools and techniques”
President Hassan Rouhani made the remarks on live television.
“The danger is the potential for miscalculation, and it takes just one mistake. You can easily see the tit-for-tat and how it gets out of hand pretty quickly.”
His secretary of state has blamed Iran for recent attacks on oil tankers, but Trump says they're no big deal.
Tehran warned Europe that unless the bloc can soften the blow of U.S. sanctions, it will start growing its stockpile of enriched uranium.
