On May 8, President Donald Trump made great show of withdrawing the United States from the nuclear agreement that his predecessor's administration had painfully negotiated with five international partners — Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — and Iran. Under the agreement, the country would stop enriching uranium at levels that could result in weapons in exchange for relief from years of sanctions that had largely left it isolated from the international economy.
"Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie," Trump said on May 8. "Last week, Israel published intelligence documents — long concealed by Iran — conclusively showing the Iranian regime and its history of pursuing nuclear weapons."
Though the International Atomic Energy Agency issued a statement that it had received "no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009," Israel's prime minister had once again convinced the one person he needed to: Trump. DW presents a look at the deal, from the day when officials from the negotiating countries signed it to how the other parties plan to move on without the support of the United States.
