President Cyril Ramaphosa expressed disappointment at US President Donald Trump's decision on Tuesday to withdraw for the Iranian nuclear deal.

"Immediately there will be no impact but we have to wait and watch how other nations particularly the European block, react", said A.K. Sharma, director (finance) of Indian Oil, the country's largest oil firm.

Haass continues: "There was no urgency to change USA policy now".

Asked by ABC News what he would do if Iran moves forward in restarting the program, Trump wasn't specific but again warned Iran of "severe effect". Iran has said it will still comply with the accord, which included Great Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation, but now European companies may have to deal with fresh sanctions on Iran.

Mr Rouhani warned that Iran would begin enriching uranium beyond the levels allowed in the deal if the government finds the country's needs are not being met.

Bruno Le Maire, France's economy minister, said that France had "tripled its trade surplus in Iran" in two years, and he cited companies including the drugmaker Sanofi, the energy firm Total, and auto manufacturers Renault and Peugeot, as among those doing business in Iran.

President Trump's move was heartily supported by Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and opposed by all other governments that are part of the deal.

"We will respect the capacity of individual countries to make their decisions about foreign policy", Trudeau said Wednesday.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson urged the U.S.

Prices extended gains after U.S. Energy Information Administration data showed domestic crude inventories fell 2.2 million barrels in the latest week, far exceeding forecasts for a decrease of 719,000 barrels.

There is also internal opposition to the decision.

"Trump officials say that it sends a clear signal that Washington isn't interested in just any deal - it wants complete denuclearization".

White House officials like Defense Secretary James Mattis understand all this. "This administration remains committed to putting the safety, interests, and well-being of our citizens first".

Trump's declaration on Monday only bans American companies from trading with Iran, but the USA may also apply "secondary sanctions" against foreign companies that trade with Iran. The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia all voiced their approval of Trump's action.

But the most vital criticism of Trump came from a president who refused to play politics with issues of life and death: Barack Obama. Without elaborating, he claimed Trump had "over 10 lies" in announcing the US was pulling out of the accord. Over the past few weeks Kim has gone to great lengths to restore the amicable relationship with Beijing, apparently with success.

Earlier, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei chastised Mr Trump, while MPs set fire to a United States flag inside parliament, shouting, "Death to America!".

"Iran's behavior across the spectrum concerns me every day", Peek said. Former CIA director John O. Brennon, for example, tweeted "Today, Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined global confidence in United States commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks, & gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes".
