In January, Trump extended sanctions relief on Iran under the deal for the last time, threatening to withdraw from it if U.S. Congress and his European allies can not fix the alleged "disastrous flaws". Nosratollah Tajik, Iran's former ambassador to Jordan, told Al-Monitor, "What happened in Syria on April 14 showed that some aspects of Iran's missile program are not just preventative [by establishing deterrence] but also a vital factor for Iran's survival".

"Iranian leaders on a weekly basis declare that they will destroy the 'Zionist entity, ' and we do not see any clear protest, neither from Europe or Russian Federation, which have very clear memories of their experiences in World War II", Liberman said.
