Trump on future of Iran nuclear deal: 'You'll see very soon'

Trump on future of Iran nuclear deal: 'You'll see very soon'

"The greater danger is not that Iran will rush to a single bomb by breaking the deal, but that Iran will be able to build many bombs by keeping the deal", Netanyahu said in his UN General Assembly speech in NY.

Taking aim more specifically at Trump's speech, Rouhani said that "the ignorant, absurd and hateful rhetoric filled with ridiculously baseless allegations that was uttered before this august body yesterday was. unfit to be heard at the United Nations, which was established to promote peace and respect".

He is slated to meet with the Palestinians in the coming days.

The conversation in NY will be dominated by talks of North Korean provocations, the Iran nuclear deal, the crisis in Syria and the debate on climate change. Rouhani also made indirect reference to political ramifications inside Iran that could ripple globally if the deal fails.

On Thursday, Trump again attacked the agreement, calling it "one of the worst deals I have ever seen".

Trump said not only has the North Korean government starved its citizens and killed opponents, it was now threatening the world with "unthinkable loss of life". She offered to help negotiate a solution similar to that reached with Iran. And, he predicted, United States allies won't have much interest in standing by Washington for abandoning the accord.

"By violating its worldwide commitments, the new United States administration only destroys its own credibility".

"If anyone exits the agreement and breaks their commitment, it means our hand is completely open to take any action that we see as beneficial to our country", Rouhani said at a news conference after his address to the General Assembly. Join us in a conversation about world events, the newsgathering process or whatever aspect of the news universe you find interesting or important.

It is noted that at the meeting the latest report by Yukiya Amano, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, was considered.

PM Netanyahu met with President Trump on Monday in NY, where Trump reiterated his commitment to reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. The - the tone was very matter of fact.

"We're going to be discussing many things; among them, peace between the Palestinians and Israel - it will be a fantastic achievement", he said, sitting with Netanyahu.

The next certification deadline is October 15, and several officials and people close to the matter have described Trump as determined to "decertify" Iranian compliance with the nuclear deal at that point. And he said the ballistic missiles his country has been testing would be used only for defensive purposes.

"If the USA wants to increase tensions, it will see the reaction from Iran", he said. If that happens and the deal unravels, and Iran is able to (depending on who you ask) resume or accelerate its pursuit of a nuclear weapon, the administration would likely face the brunt of the blame. It also exploded its most powerful nuclear bomb to date.

Calling it "one of the worst and one-sided transactions the US has ever entered into", Mr. Trump warns the assembly that "you haven't heard the last on it, believe me".

Trump then turned his attention to Syrian President Bashar al Assad and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

"Given that Mr. Trump's actions and reactions and policies are somewhat unpredictable, we have thought long and hard about our reactions", he said.

Since his election campaign a year ago, Trump has maintained that the nuclear deal does not serve US interests. Money flowing to Iran because of sanctions relief is allowing Tehran to fund these destabilizing activities, the administration argues.

Mr. Trump shifts to addressing poverty and providing a world "free from violence, hated and fear" for children the world over.

The news comes after Trump suggested that Iran is not complying with the agreement while speaking to the United Nations General Assembly.

"And we will overcome", he said as they met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in NY. This was part of the deal, and we're not up for renegotiating.

The deal was "overwhelmingly applauded by the global community and endorsed as part of Resolution 2231" adopted by the Security Council, Rouhani told the General Assembly. And when a mission consistently fails to fulfill a mandate of this council, we should end it, " he said.
