U.S. President Donald Trump seems set on pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal next week, with U.S. officials suggesting that any initial diplomatic turbulence will be followed by negotiations for a new accord. There's one big hang-up: Iran is ruling out new talks, calling the current agreement "nonnegotiable". Trump hinted at his thinking Monday. While refusing to reveal what he'll do by May 12, he repeated his belief the existing accord is "a horrible agreement for the United States". The 2015 accord required the U.S. to lift those sanctions.Iran's official government website quoted Rouhani as saying Iran won't accept any additional restrictions and the deal is "by no means negotiable".At the same time, the European strategy appears to be to try to manage Trump – possibly with some sort of additional measures – while also coaxing Iran to stay in the nuclear deal as long as possible, perhaps until after 2020 when the U.S. may have a new president.
