  • Iran warns Washington of 'unpleasant' consequences if it unilaterally scraps nuclear deal

"It is the U.S.'s and Europe's interest to prevent nuclear proliferation in a volatile region and to maintain the transatlantic partnership as a reliable and credible driving force of world politics", the European lawmakers said.

Trump has demanded the nuclear deal be altered to eliminate sunset clauses for some of the restrictions it places on Iran, and harden the inspection rules and to limit development of Iran's long-range missiles.

The lawmakers from the three European countries that were signatories to the deal warned that abandonment of the nuclear accord would end controls on Iran's nuclear program and create a source of conflict in the Middle East.

"The US government threatens to abandon the JCPOA, although Iran fulfills its obligations under the agreement", the letter read. In January, he warned Britain, France and Germany that they must "fix the bad flaws of the Iran nuclear deal" by May 12 or he would refuse to honor the sanctions relief promised in the agreement, threatening to terminate the JCPOA entirely.

Thirteen years of negotiations with Iran allowed the global community "to impose unprecedented scrutiny on the Iranian nuclear program, dismantle most of their nuclear enrichment facilities, and drastically diminish the danger of a nuclear arms race", they said in the letter published in major newspapers on Thursday and Friday. "Not a drop of blood was spilt".

It also warned that "an exit from the United States would have fatal consequences" and spell "lasting damage to our credibility as worldwide partners in negotiation, and more generally, to diplomacy as a tool to achieve peace and ensure security".

A U.S. withdrawal would open a deep divided between the United States and Europe, despite common concern over Iran's ballistic missile program and its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"We therefore urge you to stand by the coalition we have formed to keep Iran's nuclear threat at bay", they added.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at an event held in conjunction with the 72nd United Nations General Assembly inNew York September 27, 2017.

"Tehran's reaction to America's withdrawal of the deal will be unpleasant", he said in NY. In January, the president announced that he would never reauthorize agreement again without structural changes to the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the official name for the Iran nuclear deal.

Under Iran's settlement with the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China, Tehran agreed to curb its nuclear programme to satisfy the powers that it could not be used to develop atomic bombs.
