US failed to undermine nuclear deal: Iran

Trump Lets The Iran Deal Live — For Another Few Months At Least

"Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the US from the Iran nuclear deal", Trump said in a statement.

This approach is unlikely to work, given that it places the onus upon allies - who publicly don't want to alter or jeopardize the deal - to tighten it up in ways Iran will find unacceptable, Paton Walsh said.

Human experience has proven that zero-sum games and the practice of forming alliances to eliminate supposed enemies ends in loss for all the parties involved, he noted, according to Press TV. Some of the restrictions on Iran are scheduled to be lifted after 10 and 15 years.

Iran's first vice president, Eshagh Jahangiri, told the semiofficial ISNA news agency, "If the Americans withdraw from the nuclear deal, we will not hold a mourning service; we are fully prepared for any likely event".

Zarif tweeted that Trump's policy and his announcement on Friday amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement. "Rather than repeating tired rhetoric, US must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran".

Decertification, meaning the U.S.no longer believes Iran is complying with the deal's terms, is not the same thing as the U.S. ending the JCPOA, and the other partner countries could still honour it. More than anything, Sick views decertification as a bit of political gamesmanship. It prevents Iran from developing nuclear weapons while offering sanctions relief to allow it to participate in international commerce and banking.

Iran slammed US President Donald Trump's decision to target the head of its judiciary with sanctions, saying the move warrants a "severe" response. Without a fix, Trump has threatened to withdraw.

He also urged Iran to continue to fulfill its commitments under the JCPOA.

That means that U.S. continuation in the deal depends on two things happening that seem very unlikely at this time: Iran agreeing to renegotiate the deal, and the U.S. Congress finding agreement on legislation that meets Trump's criteria.

"These designations politically will go to the top of the regime", said another administration official, also speaking anonymously, "and send the message that the United States will not tolerate the violation of the rights of (Iranian) citizens".

He continued to waive sanctions against Iran on Friday, but said he was doing so "only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal". "The bottom line is, he's stuck with this deal". It is difficult to imagine how Tehran would take European demands for changing the deal seriously when those players know the demands come under duress.

The new sanctions mostly came in response to the incident of Iranian Government coming down on the peaceful protests that have engulfed the nation recently.

The new round of US sanctions could possibly include a ban on the purchase of Russian treasury bonds. Within Iran, the Supreme Leader and his Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps use mass arrests and torture to oppress and silence Iran s people. The deal, negotiated by the Obama administration is centered solely on the Iranian's nuclear weapons program.

But European diplomats say a lot is happening behind the scenes.
