Iran eyes N-deal axis against US

COLOMBO May 11 – Sri Lanka’s military on Thursday said that it was prepared to face a war crimes inquiry in order to clear its name

Washington's decision to withdraw from the deal and reimpose sanctions angered its European allies as well as China and Russian Federation.

European States are trying to save an agreement on the fate of the Iranian nuclear program, which left the United States.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China would take "an objective, fair, and responsible attitude to continue to safeguard the... agreement".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May held a phone conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday and welcomed his intention to maintain the nuclear deal after the U.S. withdrawal, the prime minister's office said in a statement.

In response to Trump's move, Rouhani referred to the US' exit from the nuclear accord as a "violation of morals" in remarks broadcast by state television, reported Reuters.

"Our governments remain committed to ensuring the agreement is upheld, and will work with all the remaining parties to the deal to ensure this remains the case including through ensuring the continuing economic benefits to the Iranian people that are linked to the agreement", they said in a joint statement released just after Trump announced his decision.

Ferrari have had the best auto so far this year, but Spain marked a turning point with Mercedes dominating throughout the weekend. During the pitstop phase, Bottas was able to leapfrog Vettel and secure a 1-2 for Mercedes.

Mrs May also said it is in both countries' interests to maintain the deal, before adding that Tehran must continue to meet its obligations under the pact.

Iran has said it will stay committed to the deal, to which Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation are also signatories, if powers still backing the agreement can ensure it is protected from sanctions against key sectors of its economy such as oil.

He also highlighted the professional capabilities of Iranian companies, saying the Islamic Republic is ready to provide Sri Lanka with technical and engineering services for the construction of dams and power plants, development of refineries, and supplying power to villages.

Why would Kim Jong-un trust Trump now he's ripped up Iran's nuclear deal?

On Wednesday, Mr Jafari had cast doubt on European nations' ability to save the nuclear accord.

"We are waiting now for how the decision-makers in the European Union will react".
