▶The Deepening U.S.-Iran Conflict

President Donald Trump, who left the Iranian nuclear treaty in May, restored economic sanctions against Iran early this month for the first time in nearly 3 years. Iran's nuclear agreement, or JCPOA, was signed by six countries in July 2015 by the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany after 13 years of diplomatic negotiations. The main point of the agreement is that the U.S. and other countries lift economic sanctions against Iran under the condition that it gives up its nuclear program. But after Trump rose to his presidency, he withdrew the U.S. from the nuclear agreement saying Iran is continuing to develop nuclear weapons in secret -- a statement that other signatories do not agree with.
So, why does President Trump make this claim? And what choice does Iran have in light of the restored sanctions? Also, what are the opinions of the rest of the European countries that will be affected by economic sanctions?
On this week's [The Point: World Affairs], we sit down with Professor Park Hyon-do from the Institute of Middle Eastern Affairs at Myongji University to analyze the background of the conflict and forecast future relations.
We also connect with Barbara Slavin from think tank Atlantic Council and Yossi Mekelberg from the UK Chatham House to hear the local sentiment.
