US not to kill nuclear deal between Iran, P5+1: Analyst

US not to kill nuclear deal between Iran, P5+1: Analyst

US President Donald Trump is expected to retreat from his campaign promise to rip up a nuclear deal signed by Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, including the US, the UK, France, Russia, and China plus Germany in 2015, says an analyst.

“Despite President Trump’s campaign promises in which he called the Iran nuclear deal as the ‘worse deal’, we don’t think the White House will be killing the nuclear deal,” Roozbeh Aliabadi, managing partner of the Global Growth Advisors from New York, told Press TV on Tuesday.

European states, Russia and China are behind the nuclear accord called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the analyst said adding, “it is highly unlikely that we will see killing of the deal.”

“It is reasonable for all of us to assume that the nuclear deal will stay in place,” the analyst noted.

He said the fact that Trump in his first three weeks in office has not yet discussed the JCPOA with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) means that the nuclear deal “is not a high priority for the Trump administration.”

On Tuesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Luxembourg’s visiting Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn underlined the importance of all parties' commitment to the international nuclear agreement.
