If the US decides to decertify the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), it will not bring the end of the pact, but Iran will face significant repercussions.

Iran analyst Mahan Abedin said: “Even if US President Donald Trump invalidates the deal this doesn’t necessarily spell the end of the deal.

“Obviously, the US is the most important component of the deal, but nevertheless even if the US is noncompliant with it and formally exits the deal it will not spell the end of the JCPOA.

“So, I do think that we are moving toward some kind of a crisis… and the warming business climate in Iran may start to freeze over again, unfortunately.”

The 2015 deal resulted in Iran agreeing to limit its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions, that have proved to be an essential component in Tehran’s economic growth.

The President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, recently stated that Mr Trump’s threats to decertify the deal will not undo the trading relationships that have already flourished.

Mr Rouhani stated: “In the nuclear negotiations and agreement we reached issues and benefits that are not reversible.

“No one can turn that back, not Mr Trump or anyone else.
