Iran Warns of Dire Regional Consequences if Nuclear Deal is Canceled

USA national security experts have urged President Donald Trump to keep the nuclear deal with Iran, in response to his appointment of hardliners to key posts.

Iran's secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani has lashed out at the appointment of former US ambassador John Bolton as US National Security adviser, said the Iranian Fars news agency. He added that the U.S. will use MEK to achieve that aim.

Hosseini alleged that the United States will use the MEK to attempt to overthrow the theocratic regime in Teheran.

Commentators said last week when Bolton was named that it signaled a toughening of Washington's stance on Tehran and another nail in the coffin of the Obama-era agreement between Iran and world powers to limit Tehran's nuclear ambitions, already cast into doubt by Trump himself.

In Paris, the group's spokesman Shahin Ghobadi said in response to the Iranian official's statement that "the notion that the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran has funded ambassador Bolton or any other American officials is simply a lie and is a mere joke".

Bolton, 69 years old, will be Trump's third national security adviser.

Bolton, 69, has always been a hawkish voice on foreign policy for the Republican Party.

That language was softer than Trump's own speech in January, when he waived sanctions against Tehran, as required under the accord, but stated explicitly that if an agreement to fix what he deems the pact's flaws was not reached, he would "withdraw from the deal immediately".

Meanwhile, a former Israeli defense minister on March 25 said Bolton once tried to persuade him to strike Iran.

Israel's ex-defence chief doesn't think this was "smart".
