A month before the Singapore summit took place, the US president pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. Iranians say it is proof that he cannot be trusted, but many are not just angry with Donald Trump. Al Jazeera's Zein Basravi explains from the capital Tehran. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

Everyone blames Iran for terrorism as a cover for Saudi and Israeli war crimes. Iran's support for Syria against Saudi funded Wahhabism is necessary.

Isn't that the whole point of sanctions. To oppress and deprive the victim country's population to such an extent that they turn against their own government and each other creating chaos and social unrest. That's the diablocial plan of the West in Iran and other countries. It like waging war in a more underhand sinister way.

All look peace, peace, and real peaceful living every Conner on Earth. Leaders come on power for Short time with theirs' agendas that some time s good or may be bad that results come later days so we the people must calm and waiting for good days ahead. What is your opinion?

iran should dismantle its nuclear programme & stop supporting terrorism then there is no sanctions & its people would be better off

Perhaps if Iran wasn't the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism. Change your hostile government or suffer the consequences.

Iran Dictators (Ayatollahs) are spending tax payers money heavily in Syria,,Yemen,Iraq,Baharin and against KSA. As a result people are suffering from inflation,devaluation of currency and price increase ,the price of wrong decisions are being paid by Iranians people they must raise voice against it.

Iran leadership will pay a horrible price. Iran is murdering in 12 different countries today. Trump will win in the end. Your leaders don't care one bit about you.

Dont confuse the regime with its people, the regime is a fascist corrupt regime, most iranians aren't even muslim, if hijab wasn't mandatory most women wouldnt even wear it.

What bullshit. The US openly funded terror groups in Libya and Syria. Stop playing the victim. The US obsession with regime change (many who are secular by the way) has created vacuums for terrorists to fill who are then supported by US allies Saudi Arabia and Israel.
James Russell (4 days ago)
Dariush Ashkani The only people who consider the US to be terrorists are organizations who are opposed to democracy, individual liberty, and free expression. If you are opposed to those ideas you SHOULD consider the US terrorists. Anyway, just try to place sanctions on us, you will find it does not work in your favor.
Dariush Ashkani (4 days ago)
James Russell well if thats the case then america arabia and israel should also get sanctioned as youre even bigger terrorists.

Also, the US doesn't often break deals. We've had a ceasefire with North Korea for 60 years now. :)
GetYour Fix (8 days ago)
The Congress in the US told Iranian officials not to make the deal with the US and that the US would likely pull out. Obama never passed it through Congress, so Congress could then revoke it later. It's unfortunate, and it makes the US look weak... But it's not like it should have come as a surprise.

Seems to be a bias report reflecting western view point against Iran. Iran should not surrender to the aggression of US and Israel for some economic growth.
Doc M (8 days ago)
Oh yeah so that persians suffer. The leaders live a luxury life but common people suffer
Sourav Poddar (8 days ago)
Shameem Ahmed I'm not opting for surrender but the point is it's not the leaders who suffered, it's the common people who suffered. I don't know how much common people care about Israel, Saudi, Palestine, US, Syria or other such matters but the only thing they care is their security and quality of lifestyle which clearly they are not getting right now.

Den Koxh 40 Million is roughly 12% of the population, not a significant number, and many Americans choose to live in poverty fpr various reasons. Government debt is a problem, but it can be turned around easilly once government spending gets cut. To be clear, the Iranian government supports ACTUAL terrorist groups, organizations that seek to uphold religious liberty, democracy, amd freedom. So long as our military remains strong, we can do any amount of "political bullying" (which is a weak person's way of saying diplomacy) that we want. Tge global position of the USA is strong, and ther doesn't appear to be any serious challenge to that claim as of yet.
Den Koxh (4 days ago)
James Russell the same can be said about the U.S..its desperately trying to hold onto whatever global influence it has and as for wealth...well it's got the highest debt in the world. In fact 40 million Americans live in poverty...times are infact starting to change and U.S. bullying will be a thing of the past...
James Russell (4 days ago)
Den Koxh So they can all get in line and suck us for how little we care. Other nations tend to be weak, less wealthy or influential. Their opinions mean nothing.

Hunter Zolomon hope some hillbillies in America get a hold of some nukes take out Iran's leaders. All the nice people in Iran get out the way seems like there's some real good people there. USA needs to get rid of the leadership there and set the nice people free
Vincent Hitchin (8 days ago)
The only way America will treat Iran like an equal is if it has nuclear weapons. Think about it, America is not telling Russia or China to denuclearize or is threatening war with them. With Russia there are sanctions but war with either country is not going to happen.

America has no pity on Iran .Islam has no pity on Iran .Kick out the religious government ,confine religion to mosques only away from public sphere .Well but architecture looks beautiful ,sidewalks are in good condition so its not that bad .in Iran .

Iran could be a booming country with it's natural resources. However, their government and it's silly ideology of spreading the revolution has become far too much of a burden on it's people. Time for regime change and get all the religious people out of government. Because religion + politics is a disaster waiting to happen.
wave runner (1 day ago)
You can't really just blame the government. Remember when Saddam invaded the whole world was against Iran (except Syria, Libya, and Algeria). Iran defended itself. Now the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel are against Iran. This isn't against their government as claimed, but to block Iran from becoming a regional power. Remember when the US abandoned the Shah? Why? Shah was going to move Iran away from US control and he was gone within a year.
