Iran nuclear deal gets continued European support after talks

In October, he refused to certify Iran was complying with the deal but stopped short of withdrawing from it, instead passing the issue of reimposing the sanctions to Congress.

He is expected to reject at least one, which essentially decertifies Iran's compliance with the deal, a senior administration official told CNN last week. "However, It won't have the same effect as the crippling sanctions before the nuclear deal was reached because it will only be imposed by the U.S. and not Europe, Russia or China". "The worldwide community and our region will be the biggest loser, since a successful experience in the global arena will be lost", he said.

Tehran is ready to accelerate its enrichment of uranium in the event Washington violates the multilateral agreement on Iran's nuclear program, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Vice-President of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Behrouz Kamalvandi said Wednesday. "I don't think anybody has so far produced a better a way of preventing the Iranians from going ahead with the acquisition of their military nuclear capability", he said.

American partners in the deal including Russia, China, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the European Union breathed a collective sigh of relief that the US did not withdraw.

Mr. Trump's renewal of the waivers will likely be accompanied by new, targeted sanctions on Iranian businesses and people, the wire service reported.

The European Union has assured Tehran it remains committed to the Iran nuclear deal, insisting that the agreement is working. According to the Iranian authorities, a lot of them have since been released. It's a way of stopping Iran from acquiring the nuclear weapons and as my colleagues have said Iran is in compliance with this agreement according to the International Atomic Energy Authority. However, two other United States sources told AFP that Trump had not yet made a decision.

"We support the rights of Iranian citizens to free speech and peaceful protest and we condemn the use of force against peaceful demonstrations", the letter said.

The administration has not revealed its intentions, but the Iran unrest is seen as a possible pretext for blowing up the nuclear accord.

11 de enero de 2018, 00:16Tehran, Jan 11 (Prensa Latina) Iran has warned it might retaliate if the sanctions pushing a fruitful nuclear deal down the drain.

The resolution calls upon Iran not to "undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology".

"Congress' main goal now is to fix the key flaws of the Iran nuclear deal; to that end, I'm drafting legislation to do so and, as we work on this matter, we must be dedicated to permanently preventing, not just delaying, Iran from becoming a nuclear weapons state", Roskam said, criticizing what he described as weaker efforts being pushed by his colleagues.

Tehran has repeatedly vowed to continue building up its ballistic missile arsenal, one of the biggest in the Middle East, saying it is for defence purposes only.
