President Trump has called it the "one of the worst deals" he has ever seen - but for now, he is keeping the U.S.in the nuclear deal with Iran. That is part of the U.S. commitment in the 2015 nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. He also disclosed a list of demands that Tehran would have to meet to avoid American sanctions being reimposed.
I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression and supporting the Iranian people. Trump's job now is to prove that was a delusion.
President Donald Trump waived nuclear sanctions against Iran for what the White House said was the final time under the current deal.
Meanwhile J Street, the liberal pro-Israel lobby that backed the deal, strongly denounced Trump for "recklessly" putting the US "on a path to a new nuclear crisis and isolation on the world stage".
It may seem that Trump and Gabriel are on opposite sides. It says it will stick to the agreement as long as the other signatories respect it but will "shred" it if Washington pulls out.
Trump says the deal has flaws. It would be national suicide, political suicide.
Instead, he said he wants Washington's European allies to use the 120-day period before sanctions relief again comes up for renewal to agree on tougher measures.
In conjunction with the waivers, the Treasury Department placed sanctions on 14 people and entities for alleged offenses unrelated to Iran's nuclear industry. Ordinary Iranians were suddenly back in the pre-nuclear deal world, where the regime's bad behavior had real economic costs. This requires a few steps.
RT discussed the issue with Kaveh Afrasiabi, a former adviser to Iran's nuclear negotiation team and author of "Iran Nuclear Accord and the Remaking of the Middle East".
Trump in October chose not to certify compliance and warned he might ultimately terminate the accord.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly preview the decision.
RT: Trump's statement sounds like an ultimatum. It has participated in the bloodshed that has affected more than one million people and displaced half the Syrian population.
Notably absent from the entities was Iran's Central Bank.
Iran has used poor Shiite youths from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen in its own interests, enrolling them into Iraqi and Lebanese militias and placing them under the command of its Revolutionary Guards. Targets like this help to separate the dictator and his henchmen from the population. Russia and China are adamantly opposed to renegotiating the deal, as is Iran. Indeed, the Iranian regime is facing many troubles.
The relatives of Qassem Suleimani, the head of Iran's Quds Force, should not be able to travel to Europe or America. He wants a more aggressive approach to Iran over its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes. He is also demanding a permanent end to Iran's enrichment of fissile material at a grade sufficient for weapons use.
He was among those calling for a crackdown following a recent spate of anti-government protests across Iran.
