Pulling Out of Iran Deal Would Isolate US

Former CIA director, David Petraeus, said on Wednesday if the US decides to nullify the 2015 deal between Iran and six major powers, the move would likely isolate the US more than it does Tehran.
Trump had called the agreement “the worst deal ever negotiated”. Reuters reported that the Trump administration is reviewing the deal, which could take months.
Petraeus, now a chairman of KKR Global Institute, made the statement at the Montgomery Summit, a tech investors meeting in Los Angeles. Petraeus pointed to some positives from the deal, including the reduction of Tehran’s atomic activities, Fox News reported. Yukiya Amano, the head of the UN agency monitoring the Iran nuclear deal, said on Monday he emphasized the benefits of the pact in a meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and is confident his message was heard.
The issue is important because Trump promised to “tear up” the pact during campaigning, saying it fell short of the aim of sufficiently crimping Tehran’s nuclear programs. Amano said he told Tillerson last week that because of the deal, the IAEA now has the “strongest verification” tools to monitor Tehran’s atomic activities.
