Iran says nuclear deal with major powers not renegotiable

Iran says nuclear deal with major powers not renegotiable

President Donald Trump gave European partners an ultimatum Friday to fix "significant flaws" in an Iranian nuclear agreement, or he will withdraw the United States from the deal in a few months' time.

Iran yesterday rejected any modification of its nuclear deal with world powers after US President Donald Trump demanded tough new measures to keep the agreement alive.

But the angst in Berlin, Brussels, London and Paris underlined what is at stake: the mercurial USA president is quite capable of sabotaging the agreement. If Iran does not comply with any of these provisions, American nuclear sanctions would automatically resume. "Second, it must ensure that Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon".

One can not predict U.S. President Donald Trump's imminent decision on the deal, Ravanchi said, adding that Tehran's rapid reaction to any breach of the deal would "surprise" Washington.

"One of the single greatest flaws is its restrictions leave Iran free... to openly develop their nuclear program and rapidly achieve a nuclear weapons breakout capability".

Trump said his strategy for confronting Iran through sanctions and support for Iranian political freedom "stands in stark contrast to the policy and actions of the previous administration".

So far, Trump has continued to follow Obama's lead in regularly signing sanctions waivers so that USA economic measures against Tehran do not "snap back". Without improvements, Trump would renew his threat to withdraw from the agreement.

By signing the deal, Italy has become the seventh country agreeing to finance projects in Iran since the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA/ nuclear deal) was implemented in January 2016.

Earlier on Friday, Kremlin spokesman Dimitry Peskov stated regarding the deal that, "You know the position of the Russian side: we adhere to and are committed to the idea of the need to preserve this agreement on the Iranian nuclear dossier..."

The sanctions Trump waived Friday dealt with Iran's central bank.

The accord, he added, can be considered "either good or bad, but it is the only one that reflects this consensus", Peskov added at a press conference. On Thursday, Britain, France and Germany called on the U.S. to uphold its part of the pact.

"The president will also make clear that this is the last such waiver he will issue".

Those mainly targeted Iranian defense officials, as well as a China-based network the U.S. says is supporting Iran's missile program. "The federal government will continue to campaign for the full implementation of the nuclear agreement". "If other nations fail to act during this time, I will terminate our deal with Iran".

First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri said in a post on his Instagram page that the USA would "lose out" if they withdrew from the deal. JCPOA is not renegotiable: "rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, United States must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran", Zarif wrote in his Twitter blog.

Mr Trump also wants Iran's ballistic missile programme to be addressed.

Trump received a formal recommendation from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and national security adviser H.R. McMaster on Thursday, officials said.
