United States to continue sanction relief for Iran as part of nuclear deal

US 'seeking excuses' to destroy nuclear deal Iran

Trump has called the agreement between Iran and six major powers reducing its nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief "the worst deal ever negotiated".

Speaking to reporters in Vienna, Amano stressed that that principle "applies to all countries, including Iran". The document has been shared with officials in the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers in Congress, sources familiar with the memo told Foreign Policy.

Tillerson isn't the only administration official exploring ways to finesse certifying the Iran deal.

Under the law, these sanctions can be waived for a maximum of 120 days, forcing the US government to revisit the issue every four months.

On September 5 U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley laid out a case for President Donald Trump to step back from the nuclear deal, arguing that Iran's technical compliance alone isn't enough for the U.S.to stick with the pact.

The cooperation among Iran, Russia and Turkey resulted in the improvement of the situation in Syria and prevented tensions to a great extent, Zarif went on to say.

NHC: Hurricane Jose not a concern to the US
Meanwhile, the remains of Hurricane Irma are nothing more than a tropical depression as it continues to weaken over land. FOX 13's meteorologist Dave Osterberg said Jose has been pin wheeling around the Atlantic Ocean for a while.

Iran on Tuesday rejected the notion that the United Nations nuclear watchdog has the right to request access to its military sites, calling into question again the Obama administration's contention that it had negotiated with Tehran the "most robust and intrusive" regime of inspections ever.

The Trump White House's threats to dismantle the JCPOA are tremendously unsafe for the US and the entire world. "It seeks to bring about a change in the Iranian regime's behavior".

Conversely, the United States could be seen as having violated a deal that was working, and the Iranians will feel free to resume their nuclear activities.

The proposal is created to address "a range of concerns about decertification, including the big "what happens next" question", said the source who had discussed the memo with congressional offices.

For more than a decade before the JCPOA was concluded, Iran refused to allow the IAEA access to sites including one at Parchin, an installation near Tehran where the agency suspected the Iranians had tested high explosive components for a nuclear weapon.

Colin Kahl, who served as Vice President Joe Biden's national security adviser in Obama's second term, told me in an email this week that it was worthwhile to begin looking at the flaws of the agreement, but he opposed any strategy in which Trump would decertify Iran's compliance.

"This is precisely a scenario that the hardliners in Iran might love", he said, "that is using the fact that the U.S.is out of step with the rest of the worldwide community to drive a wedge between us and Europe, between us and the Chinese and the Russians on this issue". Also, any foreign entities that do business with these groups are risking being sentenced to sanctions from the U.S.
