Departure From Nuclear Deal Fraught With Peril for US

Washington would face international isolation if President Donald Trump makes good on his repeated threat to walk out of the landmark nuclear deal, a nuclear official warned, ahead of the May 12 deadline for the renewal of US sanction waivers.
"If Trump does not extend [the sanctions relief under] the JCPOA, he would suffer political isolation," Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesperson for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told IRNA on Tuesday.
He was using the official name of the 2015 nuclear agreement, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, under which the six major powers committed to lift sanctions against Iran in return for scaling back its nuclear program.
"This is not the first time that Trump has threatened not to sign the waivers. It raised that threat several times in the past but ultimately he had to sign them," Kamalvandi said.
