The United States has withdrawn form JCPOA describing this agreement as threatening the stability of the Middle East, Supporting Hamas, the Taliban and al Qaeda, financing terrorism and threatening US security and stability. President Donald Trump blamed his predecessor, President Obama, by referring to the agreement as <<disastrous.>>  The US decision to withdraw from the agreement has negative repercussions, with possible impact on relationship between the US administration and its European allies. Obviously, Trump’s decision would affect the credibility of the United States of America with its allies and its failure to comply with concluded agreements, portraying Washington as irresponsible  party.
