Trump Holds Back on Iran Sanctions

Trump Holds Back on Iran Sanctions

While other JCPOA signatories havecalled on the United States to comply with the agreement's provisions, saying that the deal had yielded results and was non-negotiable, Trump signaled a possible withdrawal from the deal if the agreement was not improved.

Last week, the United States slapped sanctions on five Iran-based companies that Washington believes are involved in the country's ballistic missile program.

His ultimatum puts pressure on Europeans - key backers and parties to the 2015 global agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program - to satisfy Trump, who wants the pact strengthened with a separate agreement within 120 days. However, Trump apparently warned it would not happen again.

The recurring three-month certification deadline was created by Congress as a way to make President Barack Obama continually account for a deal many opposed.

The Trump administration also announced new sanctions on 14 Iranian individuals and entities over what his administration sees as serious human rights abuses and support of weapons development.

But Trump, who has previously vowed to scrap the nuclear pact, is privately expressing reluctance to heed the advisers, the officials said.

Police hope for 'miracle' to find missing in mudslide
The mudslide was so massive that it temporarily shut down USA 101, a major West Coast highway, from Montecito to Santa Barbara. Frustrations and dark discoveries mounted Saturday for a California town ravaged by a deadly and destructive mudslide.

Iran has insisted they have complied with the deal, with Zarif tweeting that the European Union is "fully aware" of the country's compliance. The foreign affairs deputy minister in Moscow, Sergei Ryabkov noted that Russian Federation has a very pessimistic stance on the documents and decisions made by the American president about the Iran nuclear deal. "The president makes clear this is the last such waiver he will issue", an official tells the Washington Post.

The two sides exchanged opinions on a statement regarding the Iran nuclear deal made by the US, Xinhua news agency reported. In an attempt to set the stage for another major political battle, he said this would be "the last time".

The White House is working with the congress on a US legislation, which seeks provisions to permanently prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and subject Iran's long-range missile program to severe sanctions.

It said it would also like Congress to amend the legislation that gives lawmakers the authority to slap sanctions on Iran if it decides Tehran is in violation of the nuclear agreement, outlining "trigger points" instead that set off automatic sanctions.

On Friday, Trump is scheduled to decide whether or not to extend relief to Iran from some USA economic sanctions.

In a joint press conference in Brussels on Thursday, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany issued a plea to the United States to stay in the agreement.
