US president’s decision to withdraw from the historic P5+1 Iranian nuclear deal met with a barrage of criticism from other P5+1 members, including a string of US’ Western allies.

US President Donald Trump stated that Washington was ready to make a “real deal” on the Iranian nuclear program.

“We’ll see what happens, but we’re ready to make a real deal, not the deal that was done by the previous administration, which was a disaster,” the American head of state said during his address to the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Rouhani had directed his warning at the US president on Sunday, stating that “America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.” Trump responded in all caps, warning Rouhani against “ever threatening the US again,” stressing potential dire consequences “the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before.”

US-Iranian relations have soured to a great extent since May 8, when President Donald Trump announced the United States’s pullout from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which oversaw the step-by-step lifting of the anti-Iran sanctions in exchange for Tehran maintaining the peaceful nature of its nuclear program. In addition, Trump voiced a decision to reinstate harsh sanctions against the country.

In late June, the US State Departmentsaid that the White House was seeking to talk its allies into completely halting their imports of Iranian oil and having any business ties with the country by early November. US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin emphasized that the United States was ready to slap sanctions on any country which would continue to import oil from Iran after the deadline of November 4.
