EU Commission Says All Sides Should Stick to Iran Nuclear Deal Terms

Open this

US President Donald Trump is preparing to decertify the Iran nuclear agreement, according to several US media reports.

If the administration decertifies the agreement, Congress would have a 60-day period to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

The president is facing an October 15 deadline to certify that Iran is in compliance with the accord.

Opposition to the deal was a major part of his campaign previous year. It was speculated that Trump would take up the issue of the Iran nuclear deal with the military leaders during the dinner, but it remains unclear if that's the "storm" he was referring to.

"You guys know what this represents?"

Decertification would allow Trump to argue that he has rejected the accord as pledged but not completely ignored senior advisers and lawmakers who say the accord should stand.

When reporters asked about what the storm was going on, he just said, "find out". Trump grinned mischievously and waved his hand in a semi-circle as the military leaders flanked him. "Asked one more time for a hint, the President said, Thank you everybody", before ending the conversation.

Opponents say it went too far in easing sanctions without requiring that Iran end its nuclear program permanently.

But Mr Lowcock said he believed a "high-level" team would be able to visit the area in the next few days. Lowcock said talks between Myanmar and Bangladesh on a repatriation plan were a useful first step.

"In North Korea, our goal is denuclearization", the president said.

If he chooses to "decertify" the deal it would be a first step to the US reimposing its global sanctions regime on Tehran, which would likely derail the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Trump said on Thursday that Trump was planning on de-certifying the agreement, trashing a landmark achievement of global diplomacy.

"The Iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence, bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East", Trump said.

The White House refused to clarify Trump's remark.

Defense Secretary James Mattis told lawmakers Tuesday it is in the best intertest of USA national security to remain in the deal.

President Donald Trump put his foot in his mouth, spooking the nation, again.

On North Korea, the president said "we will do what we must do" to prevent Pyongyang from threatening the USA and its allies.
