"He makes the decisions, and the advice I give him is between us".

"But for Canada's goal, we make our decisions around foreign policy here in Ottawa, not in Washington, not elsewhere". And this is what he discussed with President Macron.

"The U.S.is the world's foremost power, and for the U".

The major European countries, China and Russian Federation are all continuing to express their support for the agreement following Trump's decision to end U.S participation and restore sanctions against Iran.

"The countries that continue to deal with Iran could face sanctions. I think recognizing reality always enhances the chances for peace".

Maloney said the Europeans can try to shield some companies but cannot preserve all the trade and investment that transpired under the sanctions waivers that Trump eliminated this week.

"We expect that Iranian exports will fall well before the 180-day period until oil sanctions will be in effect, similar to the 2012 sanctions".

Germany, France and Britain were three of the six signatories to the 2015 pact which saw sanctions lifted in return for the commitment by Tehran not to acquire nuclear weapons.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the deal on Iran's nuclear program, was signed between Iran and six worldwide mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.

Jefferies said that OPEC has the capacity "to replace the Iranian losses" but added: "Even if physical supply is held constant. the market will still be faced with a precariously low level of spare capacity".

Trudeau also stressed Canada is firmly aligned with most countries, including other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in supporting the deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. "We are going to work to stop that", he said.

True, such missiles would not carry nuclear bombs for the time being, but they certainly can carry a variety of other weapons that could be also lethal and devastating to many countries in the neighbourhood of Iran.

On Iran, Bolton responded to a question from ABC News' Chief Global Affairs Correspondent and This Week Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz about the reaction of European allies to Trump's pulling the USA out of the nuclear agreement last week.

Trump said he wants to impose new conditions on Iran, to address its ballistic missile program, its support for terrorism, the expiration dates and inspection provisions in the agreement.

"In the end, the size of the USA market dwarfs any prospect of any benefit they can get from Iran", Maloney said.
