1397/2/7 | 17:42
  Iran’s’ rejection of any expectations of revising a nuclear deal under duress by a fickle United States and a obsequious France is a creditable approach.

Trumps hyperbolic rhetoric has justifiably drawn Iran’s ire and put Washington at odds with other signatories of the accord; Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the European ...
