“The deal is working; it is delivering on its main goal, which means keeping the Iranian nuclear program in check and under close surveillance,” Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, concluded in a statement on Thursday. “Unity of the international community is essential to preserve a deal that is working, that is making the world safer, and that is preventing a potential nuclear arms race in the region. And we expect all parties to continue to fully implement this agreement.”
In addition to international pressure, American lawmakers are also urging Trump to uphold the nuclear agreement. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wrote in a series of tweets on Thursday that the deal has “blocked Iran’s path to a nuclear bomb,” and that any attempt to reimpose sanctions would “make it easier for Iran to get its hands on a nuclear weapon.”
