Britain urges US to stay with Iran nuclear deal

Meanwhile, Trump has strongly criticised the agreement as insane.
Darroch also told Brennan that Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke Saturday, and that Trump told May that "a final decision hasn't yet been taken".
"But if they want to weaken Iran and limit its influence whether in the region or globally, Iran will fiercely resist".
Trump hinted at his thinking Monday. Over the weekend, Netanyahu again demanded the world "stop" Iran. The deadline for Trump's decision is May 12. Iran also buys its air defenses from Russia, and doesn't have substantial Iranian-made systems that they could even theoretically provide Syria.
Speaking to international reporters on Sunday, Netanyahu pushed back against critics who said a trove of pilfered Iranian documents he revealed last week had showed nothing new. "The only ones who will, will be those who see tremendous monetary benefit and no US risk".
By contrast, if Trump walks out of the deal on May 12, the United States will be isolated. "We have a few days left to see if we can find a way through".
"We are honouring our commitment, but we are telling the whole world we will not negotiate with anyone about our weapons and our defence".
The Guardian also says there's no further information about how much work was actually undertaken by the investigators, how long the investigation lasted or what was done with the information compiled. Not the self-decepting Western elite, which can so willfully imagine the good and peaceful nature of a cruel and dangerous (for our own children!) enemy.
"Indeed at this moment Britain is working alongside the Trump administration and our French and German allies to ensure that they are".
Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson meets in Washington this week with Vice President Mike Pence, National Security Adviser John Bolton, and other administration and Congressional officials to try to salvage the pact.
These include its failure to address Iran's ballistic missile program, the terms by which inspectors visit suspect Iranian sites, and "sunset" clauses under which some terms expire.
"I said it from the start, it has to be either fully fixed or fully nixed", Netanyahu said.
Trump wants Congress and European powers to fix "disastrous flaws".
Q: What would Iran do?
"All of us are thinking about the uncertain future ahead of us", said Mohammad Khaleghi, a 27-year-old appliance salesman on Tehran's Amin Hozour Street. "It is as if such a deal does not exist at all".
"Better now than later..." Trump has repeatedly warned that he might ultimately terminate the agreement reached under his predecessor Barack Obama.
Israel's prime minister on Sunday stepped up his calls for Trump to withdraw from the agreement. He suggested that the United Kingdom and France could pursue their suggestion of new negotiations to strengthen the deal. It's already has delivered eight of its twin-engined turboprops to Tehran after earlier winning permission from the US Treasury. Walking away, he added, could have hard-to-predict consequences. But Iran's government website quoted Rouhani as saying Iran won't accept any additional restrictions and the deal is "by no means negotiable". In its second weekend in theaters, "Avengers: Infinity War" continues to dominate in North America.
