Washington Correspondent

President Trump has warned Iran against resuming its nuclear weapons programme, following his decision to pull the US out of the nuclear deal. He spoke of “very severe consequences” if they do. The world has been reacting to the US move. Russia said it was “deeply disappointed”, China has expressed regret. Iran’s Supreme leader addressed the US President directly, telling him he had made a “mistake”.

The UK said it has no intention of walking away from the deal. Britain, Germany, France and Iran will meet next Monday.
