Iran says it will not extend 60-day nuclear deal deadline: Tasnim

1,000 More US Troops Deployed To The Middle East Iran will not wage war against any nation, president says

Tom Cotton openly advocated over the weekend-the Trump administration late Monday announced the deployment of 1,000 more troops to the Middle East following attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

The standoff drew a call for caution from China.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks during a meeting with tribal leaders in Kerbala, Iraq, on March 12, 2019.

The US has implicated Iran in basically the most contemporary assaults and four others birth air the Strait of Hormuz in May maybe well presumably, allegations denied by Iran.

While acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan insisted in a statement that the 1,000 additional troops are being deployed for "defensive" purposes, anti-war critics and members of Congress raised alarm that the Trump administration is rapidly moving closer to an all-out military conflict with Iran.

"The recent Iranian attacks validate the reliable, credible intelligence we have received on hostile behaviour by Iranian forces and their proxy groups that threaten United States personnel and interests across the region", Shanahan said in a statement.

The new USA deployment to the Middle East would be in addition to a 1,500 troop increase announced last month in response to tanker attacks in May that the U.S. also blamed on Iran.

China and Iran have close energy ties and Beijing has been angered by United States threats against countries and companies that violate U.S. sanctions by importing Iranian oil.

In return for lifting sanctions JCPOA restricted Iran's ability to move forward with nearly all aspects of its nuclear project, including operating centrifuges, uranium stockpiling, building nuclear reactors, purchasing dual-use materials, and pursuing advanced centrifuge research and development.

Iran would not give European powers more time beyond July 8 to save its nuclear deal by shielding it from US sanctions, spokesman for Iran's Atomic Energy Organization Behrouz Kamalvandi said.

It comes after Iran said last month that they would stop complying fully with the landmark nuclear deal following the US' decision to pull out a year earlier.

It automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five driver-selectable low-speed settings, so drivers can focus on steering. The latter allows you to choose from multiple surfaces such as loose rocks, mud and sand and more to optimise drivability.

Weeks ago, when Iran first announced it would speed up its enrichment - though not necessarily exceed limits - some European officials expressed concern that partners to the nuclear deal might have no choice but to sanction Iran. World powers must use every possible measure to prevent the spectre of Iranian nuclear armament.

"It is not an easy exercise", the EU's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said on Monday.

The German Foreign Minister increased pressure on Iran on Wednesday with a warning that conflict in the Arabian Gulf could not be ruled out after attacks on land and sea.

Trump decertified the deal in October 2017 and withdrew from it in May 2018. Afterwards, Iran and the remaining parties launched talks to save the accord.

The US responded to the ultimatum by urging the worldwide community not to give in to Iranian "nuclear extortion", while the United Nations and European states called for cool heads.

"President Trump does not want war, and we will continue to communicate that message, while doing the things that are necessary to protect American interests in the region", he said.

A series of United Nations inspections under the deal have verified that Iran has been meeting its commitments.

He continued "last week, we had a very fruitful and valuable meeting with the Prime Minister of Japan on bilateral, regional and worldwide issues".

The United States is "pumping up tensions" and could open a "Pandora's box" in the Middle East after announcing it will deploy 1,000 more troops to the already volatile region, Russian Federation and China said on Tuesday.

He underlined China's unwavering stance on the 2015 agreement, saying it would continue to cooperate with all parties to make progress on the transformation of one of Tehran's heavy water reactor, used in nuclear research. "Iran had purchased pipes for replacement in case the West violated the deal". He's accused President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State John Kerry of forsaking Israel by agreeing to the pact, which Trump claimed gave Iran too many concessions. But to go and retaliate and say, 'oh we're going to blow up one of their naval ships or we're going to drop a bomb on Tehran, '.

"Following clues in the American intelligence services, we recently found the new recruits Americans had hired and dismantled a new network", state news agency IRNA said, quoting an intelligence ministry official.
