    Sanders calls on US to rejoin Iran nuclear

Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) urged for a return to the nuclear accord with Iran in the wake of Tehran’s latest step away from the deal.

Iran Press/America: Iran has reduced its commitments to the deal after US President Donald  Trump unilaterally withdrew from it last year. Sanders called the decision “concerning,” but nonetheless arguing for a return to the nuclear deal, known formally as the JCPOA, RT reported.

“We had a deal in place that capped Iran’s nuclear program, which Trump recklessly violated,” Sanders said. “We should rejoin the JCPOA immediately and talk to Iran about other regional issues.”

Since the first anniversary of the US withdrawal from JCPOA  on 8 May 2018, and after European parties failed to protect Iran's interests and economy from US sanctions, Iran has gradually taken steps to reduce its commitments to JCPOA every two months.
