President Donald Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday could have widespread global implications ranging from the price of oil to the future of Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
The U.S. withdrawal from the deal could stress already strained diplomatic relations with a number of key allies, including European Union leaders in Germany, France and the United Kingdom, all original parties in the 2015 accord.
President Emmanuel Macron of France and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson have both implored Trump in recent days to stay in the landmark deal brokered under President Barack Obama. Macron later tweeted Tuesday his disappointment with Trump's decision to exit the deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
"France, Germany, and the UK regret the U.S. decision to leave the JCPOA," Macron said in a tweet. "The nuclear non-proliferation regime is at stake."
As part of the original deal, a host of countries, including Russia and China, agreed to periodically suspend sanctions on Iran so long as the Iranians complied with the terms of the deal, including regular international inspections.
