IRAN: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said President Trump had made up his mind about whether to walk away from the deal, but wouldn’t tell the public or other world leaders yet he said: “I think it’s pretty difficult to say that the expectations of the parties who negotiated this agreement have been met. Perhaps the technical aspects have but in the broader context the aspiration has not.” he went on to say “Since the agreement has been confirmed we have seen anything but a more peaceful, stable region.” Tillerson cited Iran’s cyber activity, missile tests and support for Bashar al-Assad.
WORLD LEADERS: Prime Minister May [of the U.K.] asked him if he would share [his decision] with her to which President Donald Trump Simply said “NO”
Another leader this time from European Union foreign policy. Chief Federica Mogherini said after the meeting that all parties agreed Iran is living up to the agreement, and that she didn’t see any need for renegotiation.
THE DEAL: On the current U.S. stance: “We expect Iran to fill its commitments, until that time we’ll consider our commitments and the president has the matter under consideration, President Trump’s has said that he’s made up his mind to which Secretary Tillerson said “I didn’t know he was going to say today he made a decision. I knew he had.”
