The Heat: Iran Nuclear Deal and Macron's visit to China

The Heat: Iran Nuclear Deal and Macron's visit to China The Heat: Iran Nuclear Deal and Macron's visit to China

"Considering Trump's multiple tweets regarding the recent protests in Iran, it is obvious that the USA president is trying to take advantage of the situation and is attempting to look for a reason, any reason, to put more pressure on Iran".

President Donald Trump must decide by Friday whether to continue to back the provisions of the nuclear deal, which effectively opened Iran to global commerce including a tentative deal with USA aircraft maker Boeing.

"But in his statement, the president will also make clear that this is the last such waiver that he will issue".

President Donald Trump's administration moved Thursday to ratchet up pressure on Iran as the president faces a series of deadlines for decisions on sanctions underpinning the 2015 nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.

Eliminating the "sunset clauses" that allow Iran to restart its uranium enrichment program after 2025 was also within Trump's concern, according to the officials. It also could hand Iran a pretext to start limiting United Nations inspections or restart its nuclear program.

U.S. officials say the president will work with European partners to try to broker an agreement limiting Iran's ballistic missiles activities. What they can not do is secure for him the concessions that he sees as necessary to make better, properly "America First" policies.

'We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence, more terror, and the very real threat of Iran's nuclear breakout, ' Trump stated.

Tottenham are now fifth in the league table with 41 points from 22 matches, three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool. Everton arrived in the capital without a win in six and having lost each of their last three league fixtures.

If Trump's fixes aren't met within 120 days, the White House signaled that the deal would be nixed altogether.

But Mr Trump has strongly criticised the deal, reached under his predecessor Barack Obama. The U.S. president said last week that they would have the full assistance of his government when the time was right.

Gabriel called on Washington to separate the Iranian nuclear deal from other issues, stressing that Europe and the United States should confront Iran in regards to its missiles program and role in the Syrian war.

The deadlines for a number of these waivers to be renewed will fall over the coming week, and Trump is obliged to decide whether or not to maintain sanctions relief. A decision to withhold a waiver would have effectively ended the deal that limits Iran's nuclear programme.

The accord, he added, can be considered "either good or bad, but it is the only one that reflects this consensus", Peskov added at a press conference.

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke by telephone with Trump on Thursday, reminding him of France's determination to strictly abide by the treaty and the importance that all parties adhere to it. The next day, Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior aide to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also reacted similarly, although cautiously, regarding the possibility that Trump would refuse to issue the waivers. In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal.

Trump will reportedly point to Iran's ballistic missile testing, human rights violations and alleged support for terrorism as justification for the new sanctions. European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who hosted Thursday's meeting, said that "unity is essential to preserve a deal that is working, that is making the world safer, that is preventing a nuclear arms race in the region".

"The unity of the worldwide community is essential to preserve a deal that is working, that is making the world safer and that is preventing a potential nuclear arms race in the region". Ministers recognized the need to do more to boost the economic benefits the deal should bring to Iran.
