Iran Says It Won't Accept Any Changes To 2015 Nuclear Deal

36930360962_2e832439be_b

In a background briefing, senior administration officials said this is Trump's "waiver" on Iran.

Later in the statement, Trump reiterated, "This is a last chance". The law had imposed sanctions on companies that provided insurance or reinsurance services for Iran's national oil company and national tanker company.

Whether the U.S. and European partners will be able to agree on a supplemental deal by May that strengthens the nuclear agreement is far from clear. He accused Iran of "not living up to the spirit" of the agreement even though the International Atomic Energy Agency says Tehran is complying.

Iran said on Saturday it would not accept any changes to its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. A decision to withhold a waiver would have effectively ended the deal between Iran, the United States, China, France, Russia, Britain, Germany and the European Union.

The officials notably did not say that Trump expected the other two nations party to the deal - Russian Federation and China - to join in the revision of the deal.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Electronic Warfare and Cyber Defense Organization were each labeled for acting on behalf of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard.

Also blacklisted were Iran's cyberspace agency, which administration officials said restricts its citizens' access to the internet; Iranian defense industry firms that fix and maintain helicopters and aircraft; a Malaysia-based company that allegedly supports Iranian naval missile production; and a Chinese businessman who allegedly supplied financing and equipment to Iran's electronics industry.

Among those blacklisted is the head of Iran's judiciary, Sadegh Amoli Larijani. He is the brother of the speaker of the Iranian parliament, Ali Larijani, the officials said. Work already has begun on this front.

Nicholson then blamed her for the broken headset and threatened to kill the victim and Nicholson's father. Autumn White, the suspect's sister, said, "My mom was a wonderful person who loved her children".

This would not entail negotiations with Iran but would be the result of talks with European allies, the official said. "All of those steps can be taken outside of the nuclear deal, but if we cannot achieve global consensus on them, then it will become even clearer that the nuclear deal is an impediment to peace".

Trump first called on the European nations to reopen the deal to modifications in October; there has been no sign that any party to the deal outside Trump is willing to do so. Noncertification to Congress does not affect the actual accord, however.

In August, US President Donald Trump signed into law a new package of sanctions drafted by US lawmakers. And by the way, it has been endorsed by the U.N. Security Council. He wants to make the restrictions on Iran's nuclear program permanent so Iran never gets any closer to building a nuclear bomb.

In exchange, economic sanctions on it were lifted.

The waiver Trump signed off on Friday must be issued every 120 days, which means the US will continue to honor its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) at least through the spring.

European signatories to the deal have pressured the United States to stick to the accord. Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw. It's keeping Iran's nuclear program in check.

The White House said Trump underscored to Macron that Iran must cease its "destabilizing activity" in the region, including its support for terrorism. "Rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, United States must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran". What they did today was they added 14 individuals and entities to a couple different blacklists.

Some of the new sanctions announced by the Treasury Department are a response to crackdowns on anti-government protests and blocking access to social media sites.
