Iran not pulling weight on 2015 nuclear deal

Malita Javier | 21 Abril, 2017, 19:22

At a joint news conference on Thursday, he said Iran is failing to fulfill the "spirit" of its nuclear deal with world powers and that the 2015 agreement shouldn't have been signed.

"They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement", Trump said.

"It shouldn't have been signed".

Yesterday, Rex Tillerson, the US Secretary of State, stated that the US will be carrying out a thorough review of policy towards Iran. However, the letter also said that the National Security Council would be reviewing whether it's in the USA national security interest to lift sanctions, as required under the JCPOA, given that "Iran remains a leading state sponsor of terror through many platforms and methods".

North Korea on "Maximum Alert"
USA officials have long speculated that North Korea could soon stage another nuclear test or carry on with missile tests. The new forum for trade talks was launched by Trump and Abe during the Japanese leader's visit to the U.S.in February.

Trump had called the Iran deal the "worst" ever, and claimed climate change was a hoax.

"We'll see if U.S. prepared to live up to letter of #JCPOA (nuclear deal) let alone spirit", Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted. "He should have said the nuclear deal deals with nuclear issues, and we are going to be very tough in enforcing it, but it doesn't deal with Iran's support for terrorism", Deutch said.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Iran is failing to fulfill the "spirit" of its nuclear deal with world powers, President Donald Trump has declared, setting an ominous tone for his forthcoming decision about whether to pull the USA out of the landmark agreement. "Worn-out US accusations can't mask its admission of Iran's compliance w/ JCPOA [the nuclear deal], obligating U.S.to change course & fulfill its own commitments", tweeted Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad-Javad Zarif, according to the Guardian.

Mr Tillerson, seeking to reinforce the idea that the USA is forcefully countering Iran's destabilising behaviour in the Middle East, also described Tehran as a "leading state sponsor of terror".

The historic deal between Iran and six major powers restricts Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of global oil and financial sanctions against the Islamic Republic. "The United States is keen to avoid a second piece of evidence that strategic patience is a failed approach". But in place of action, the Trump administration is only reviewing these agreements, as it is doing with much of American foreign policy.

Islamic State attacked Iraq forces "with chemical weapons"
That "makes it very hard for any offensive manoeuvre in there, but it makes it very easy to defend", Uribe said. But Allawi warned that retaking Mosul will not be the end of the fight against IS in the country.

Tillerson added that the NSC "will evaluate whether suspension of sanctions related to Iran pursuant to the JCPOA is vital to the national security interests of the United States".

This week the secretary of state informed Congress that Tehran is keeping its side of the bargain to restrict its nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of sanctions, which he's required to confirm every 90 days.

Iran has also been backing the Syrian government of President Bashar Assad, also sending military advisers and fighters to Iraq to help fight Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) there. He said that the current administration will not pass "the buck to a future administration on Iran".

The comments came after US Defense Secretary James Mattis repeated anti-Iran allegations during a visit to Saudi Arabia.
