Trump Lets The Iran Deal Live — For Another Few Months At Least

President Trump Ignore the Iran Deal

Iranian officials have stressed they will not reopen negotiations on the accord, which required Tehran to dismantle or destroy most of its nuclear infrastructure in exchange for easing of most global sanctions.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday said the world direly needs a cultural dialogue for security of all in Asia.

The White House said Trump had "underscored that Iran must stop its destabilizing activity in the region".

In accordance with a mechanism set up by Congress, the nuclear agreement has to be re-assessed by an American president every 90 days.

The Foreign Ministers of Britain, France and Germany threw their weight behind the pact limiting Iran's nuclear ambitions and insisted that the Islamic Republic is respecting it.

While Trump approved the sanctions waiver, the Treasury Department announced new, targeted sanctions against 14 Iranian entities and people.

He said Trump used the most vulgar term "more than once". "Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!" Trump said in reference to Haitians, "take them out". "I don't believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA ".

Iran has said that a decision by the United States, to impose sanctions on the head of its judiciary "crossed a red line", and has vowed to retaliate.

Trump said he had reluctantly agreed to extend the waivers only to secure the support of America's European allies to fix the agreement. Trump wants them to help the US devise a new agreement created to prevent Iran from escalating nuclear activity again next decade, as permitted under the 2015 arrangement reached by President Barack Obama. All sides agreed that it would cover only Iran's apparent efforts to develop nuclear weapons, which was in violation of United Nations resolutions, and not other issues. Nevertheless, many other restrictions, for instance over Iranian ballistic missiles, remained in place.

Russian Federation spoke out strongly Friday in favor of the accord, ahead of the announcement of Trump's decision, calling it "the result of a consensus among many parties", in the words of Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Trump stopped short for a third time of re-imposing harsh sanctions meant to push Tehran to give up its nuclear weapons research.

"If at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately", he added.

Washington policy hawks hailed Trump's decision, which they said would concentrate minds in Europe, where leaders have urged the United States president not to sabotage a deal they see as a landmark diplomatic success.
