UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain welcome Trump's exit from Iran nuclear deal | The National - UAE |
The president said in his announcement that US had consulted with `friends from across the Middle East' ...
The UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain announced on Tuesday their support for US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, with Riyadh's ambassador to Washington blasting Tehran's malicious behaviour in the Middle East.
The Emirates, according to a statement released by the official news agency, issued its support for Mr Trump's decision, and called upon the international community and parties in the Iran nuclear agreement to "heed Mr Trump's call for a Middle East free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction."
[Plus a handshake on ten of billions worth of fighter aircraft and armaments :( - Oui]
Both Saudi Arabia and Bahrain also issued statements welcoming Mr Trump's decision. Riyadh's statement, which came less than an hour after Mr Trump's decision, said it "supports and welcomes" the US decision.
"Saudi Arabia's past support for the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 was based on its firm belief in the need to work on everything that would limit the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East and the world" it added.
However, it then pointed to Iran's destabilising activities in the region, especially through the development of ballistic missiles, and its support for terrorist groups in the region, such as the Houthis which "used the capabilities transferred by Iran to target civilians in the Kingdom and Yemen and repeated exposure international shipping lanes, and in flagrant violation of the resolutions of the Security Council," as reasons why it is withdrawing the support today.
In Washington, Saudi ambassador Prince Khalid bin Salman reiterated the support, and said the nuclear deal "has fueled Iran's malicious expansion driven by its extremist ideology."
Trump's revenge on President Obama after embarrassing him at the Press dinner .... Barack never was a friend of the Trumps like Hillary was. One recognizes a person by the company he/she keeps. Sheez ... and Murdock too? Well, it's the corruption of New York, isn't it?
Barack too never really got loose from the strings of Wall Street and the MIC - Pentagon and Langley. But he was president for eight years, all that rest are good memories and the Affordale Care Act (ACA).

○ Trump's team snooped on Obama officials. That's gutter politics | The Guardian Opinion - Jill Abramson |
The only leader who has tried harder than Trump to kill the Iran deal is Benjamin Netanyahu, which is why, no doubt, the Israeli firm [Black Cube] was hired shortly after Trump visited Tel Aviv and met with the Israeli prime minister to discuss it.
This kind of gutter politics is also signature Netanyahu, who, like Trump, is facing an epic corruption investigation [Lahav 433] that could cost him his job.
The Israeli Mossad are experts in the "piggy-back" form of a coup d'état and ditto assasinations. Murder Inc., covert operation under cover of another event ... :(
