EU and Iran agree on new payment system to skirt US sanctions

In face of blank stares, headshake, and frowning, U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday delivered a speech at the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), touting his America First foreign policy and trade stance, while attacking globalism.

"In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country", Trump said, prompting laughter in the United Nations hall.

Mr Trump smiled at the laughter before responding: "I didn't expect that reaction but that's okay".

This effectively cut out the entire moment, from world leaders snickering at Trump to the entire assembly bursting out in laughter.

Iran says the signatories to the JCPOA need to bear the cost of standing up to United States sanctions in order to keep the deal alive following Washington's unilateral and illegal withdrawal. He said "we are standing up for America and for the American people, and we are also standing up for the world".

United States intelligence agencies have already concluded Russia interfered in the 2016 USA presidential vote in a bid to ensure a Trump victory - something both Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Trump deny. "If you dislike the JCPOA because it is the legacy of your domestic political rivals, then we invite you to come back to the Security Council resolution".

Britain, France and Germany - along with Russian Federation and China - had all pleaded unsuccessfully for President Donald Trump to remain in the six countries' 2015 accord with Iran on ending its nuclear program.

After his administration pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration and several other countries, Trump added: "Additional sanctions will resume November 5 and more will follow". His national security adviser, John Bolton, warned that there would be "hell to pay" if Tehran crossed the USA, its allies or their partners.

Later, as he was leaving the United Nations, he told reporters that he had meant to be amusing.

The US president is in the Security Council chair on Wednesday because America now holds the rotating presidency.

But Trump's bombastic foreign policy has faced significant criticism at home and overseas, and polls have shown a that majority of Americans surveyed feel the U.S. has lost respect worldwide under his leadership. Ultimately, sustainable peace and prosperity in East Asia are paramount to denuclearization, an objective that will only occur years into the future (if it occurs at all).
