United States has significant issues with Iran N-deal: Tillerson

President Nicolas Maduro

In remarks clearly directed at U.S. President Donald Trump, he told the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday that "it will be a great pity if this agreement were to be destroyed by rogue newcomers to the world of politics".

However, although Trump does not like the deal, his speech to the United Nations on Tuesday did not mean Washington would withdraw from the pact, Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., said on Wednesday.

"The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into", Trump said.

Trump also made a direct comparison between the "reckless regimes" in Pyongyang and Tehran, which rolled back its nuclear program only two years ago.

"He was left a really hard circumstance, because all of the benefits are front-loaded for Iran and all the possible benefits for the rest of the world, the United States, are theoretically at the end, maybe", Bush said.

"It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future", Trump said. "This is not going to keep his people safer but puts them on a path of devastation". The tone was very matter-of-fact. He added with a chuckle, "we didn't throw shoes at one another". This, he said, was a "curtain of tyranny and terror" that had spread across Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and other countries in the region, but would never succeed in extinguishing "the light of Israel".

"We've returned to the Promised Land, revived our language, ingathered our exiles, and built a modern, thriving democracy", the Israeli leader said.

"Perhaps the technical aspects have (been met), but in the broader context the aspiration has not", Tillerson said.

In years of listening to United Nations speeches, "none were bolder, none were more courageous and forthright than the one delivered by President Trump today", Netanyahu said.

And if the White House "decertifies" Iran's compliance, this would open the way to the US Congress reimposing sanctions and perhaps provoke Iran to itself pull out. "What I can tell you is if he does not certify, he's certainly on grounds to not do that", she said about it.

He also dismissed any suggestion that the USA and other countries would not accept a declaration of independence. More than 5.2 million people are registered to vote.

He added that United States allies are looking "more carefully and seriously" at ways to push back against Iranian aggression.

"We also have been making the case to our allies that you share our concern about Iran's behavior".

MOGHERINI: With the hard times we are living in the world of today with quite a good number of conflicts, crisis and a nuclear threat coming from a different part of the world, the global community can not afford dismantling an agreement that is working and delivering.

The JCPOA, Rouhani said, is an worldwide agreement conducive to regional and global security and stability. Mogherini declined to say whether Tillerson had pledged to remain committed to the deal, but said the European Union is committed to preserving it.

"The Iranians are boasting about their ambitions and their activities", he told a summit convened by United against a Nuclear Iran. "Let's not forget that".

And he repeated "you are our friends" in Farsi, one of Iran's main languages.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly verified Iran's adherence to the terms of the JCPOA. "We invite everybody to calmness, patience, and to resolve issues through diplomacy and negotiation, because in the current situation, tension will be very dangerous".

The source added that Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, and Jason Greenblatt, Trump's representative in worldwide negotiations, essentially returned with empty hands from two visits to Jerusalem and Ramallah in recent months, although neither side dared to openly say "No" to Trump.

Tillerson was asked later whether he could have a similar discussion with a North Korean representative.
