Iran's leaders have been coy, although Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told The Associated Press last week Iran would "most likely" abandon the deal if Trump withdraws. "So the deal that was made was made on things that weren't accurate, and we have a big problem with that".
The President of France Emmanuel macron said that a possible USA decision on withdrawal from the Agreement on the Iranian atom can affect the entire world community. Assuming the documents from Iran's secret nuclear weapons program that he displayed on a huge screen are genuine - and no one seems to dispute that - then the world now has concrete evidence that Iran has lied when it denied it wanted to build nuclear bombs.

"I just want to say whatever the decision will be, we will have to prepare such a broader negotiation and a broader deal, because I think nobody wants a war in the region, and nobody wants an escalation in terms of tension in the region", he said.
If, on the other hand, the Trump administration re-sanctioned key Iranian entities such as the Central Bank of Iran, the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines, Iran Air and the National Iranian Oil Company, and attempts to unilaterally enforce third-party sanctions against European entities doing business with Iran, there is little chance that Iran would continue with the agreement.
