New US Sanctions Attempt to Influence Russia Before Election

New US Sanctions Attempt to Influence Russia Before Election

European Union powers on Thursday urged U.S. President Donald Trump to endorse a key nuclear agreement with Iran saying the deal is essential for worldwide security.

Meanwhile, on his official Twitter account, Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Trump's decision undermined the multilateral agreement.

But he says this waiver will be the last and is meant to secure an agreement from European allies to fix what he says are flaws in the pact.

It would also have to contain "triggers", including inspections of Iranian facilities, which would lead to a reimposition of sanctions if Iran failed to comply. It also said Iran would not allow the deal to be linked to other issues, following the president's suggestion the deal be tied to Iran limiting its long-range ballistic missile program.

Meanwhile J Street, the liberal pro-Israel lobby that backed the deal, strongly denounced Trump for "recklessly" putting the U.S. "on a path to a new nuclear crisis and isolation on the world stage".

President Trump would further couple the announcement with father sanctions to a total of 14 citizens and companies of Iran including the chief of the judiciary in Tehran, Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani.

Iran's Foreign Ministry, sending a strong message to the U.S., has named those, whom they consider to be behind the attempt to undermine the deal, which took years and great diplomatic efforts to reach.

She had told CBS last October: "There'll be no running for office of any kind for me". " she said during her acceptance speech ". She wasn't thinking in those terms.

"JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, USA must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran", Zarif tweeted immediately after Trump's speech.

In a phone call, President Emmanuel Macron of France also urged Trump not to scrap the deal. The administration accuses Larijani of being responsible for the violent crackdown on dissidents in Iran during recent protests.

The Republican leader grudgingly agreed to sign sanctions waivers, ensuring Washington will live up to its commitments for another 120 days, but he cautioned it would be 'for the last time'. And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately, Trump warned, adding that no one should doubt his words.

"Iran's response will be severe, and all consequences of this hostile act will be the responsibility of the United States", it said. These penalties largely cut Iran out of the global financial system, until they were suspended by Obama under the nuclear deal. Trita Parsi, head of the National Iranian American Council, called it a "temporary stay of execution".

The EU said in a statement it had taken note of Trump's decision and would assess its implications.

"Like it or not, we need to uphold our end of the bargain so that we can hold Iran to its obligations and crack down on the regime's other destabilizing activities".
