Iran nuclear deal not 'derailed', will play constructive role: China

Iran nuclear deal not 'derailed', will play constructive role: China

Washington also imposed sanctions on the head of Iran's judiciary and others.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said Trump's aggressive stance on the deal and Iran generally have also violated the commitment to "refrain from any policy specifically meant to directly and adversely affect the normalisation of trade and economic relations with Iran" in the accord.

President Donald Trump on Friday called on America's European allies to help fix the "disastrous flaws" in the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, warning he will walk away from the agreement if his demand is not met.

Trump at that time essentially handed lawmakers the ball, saying it is up to Congress to decide whether to keep the status quo, slap the waived sanctions back on Tehran and blow up the 2015 deal - or set up what White House aides describe as "trigger points" that likely would put the nuclear pact in jeopardy.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded on Twitter that the deal was not renegotiable, and that Mr Trump's stance "amounts to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement".

"The president will also make clear that this is the last such waiver he will issue". "He wants to deny Iran access to nuclear weapons forever and not just for 10 years", one of the officials said.

French Ambassador to the U.S. Gerard Araud also expressed support for the nuclear deal.

The UN panel's report did not say Iran had supplied missiles to the Houthis.

What Does Judge's Decision Mean For DACA Recipients Now?
One person with direct knowledge of that meeting said Durbin and Graham hadn't expected the three GOP lawmakers to be there. Trump has said that any deal to extend DACA must include plans for a wall on the US border with Mexico.

"Today, I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", Trump said in a statement.

The regime in Iran has slammed the decision by the United States president Donald trump of targeting their judiciary chief with sanctions.

"Today, I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", Trump said in a statement Friday.

Russia, as well as the European Union, remains committed to the Iran nuclear deal, despite the recent United States waiver of sanctions against the country. A decision to withhold a waiver would have effectively ended the deal that limits Iran's nuclear program.

Officials in Britain and the European Union will likely welcome the news having fought hard to convince Trump to keep the deal in place.

Trump, after months of railing against the agreement, signed a waiver on Friday keeping the deal in place for at least 90 days but called for changes, particularly removal of so-called "sunset clauses" that allow Iran to gradually resume advanced nuclear activities in the next decade. "Rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, U.S. must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran". At that time, Trump had said the deal would be "terminated" if an agreement wasn't reached. The US is cutting off the Iranian regime's money flows to terrorists, he said.

"Fourth, the legislation must explicitly state in United States law-for the first time-that long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs are inseparable, and that Iran's development and testing of missiles should be subject to severe sanctions".

"The deal is a long-lasting victory for Iran", added Rouhani.
