Trump says Iran violating 'spirit' of nuclear deal

Ellis Copeland | 23 April, 2017, 03:35

It was the first such notification under US President Donald Trump.

Trump, in his remarks with the Italian prime minister, also slammed the deal.

The State Department also said that "Iran remains a leading state sponsor of terror through many platforms and methods" and that the Trump administration is reviewing the deal. It was not even clear the USA would remain a party to the agreement back in January, particularly since that agreement was never ratified by the Senate as a treaty.

"On Wednesday, Secretary of State Tillerson said "(t) he Trump administration is now conducting across the entire government a review of our Iran policy". "We're in a role everywhere, so I do not see that".

- It's possible he may soon be able to strike deals with Congress on both health care and funding legislation to head off a government shutdown.

Zarif is nearly as avid a user of Twitter as Trump despite it being officially banned in Iran.

The nuclear deal forged by the Obama administration and allies "completely ignored all of the other serious threats that Iran poses", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said from the department's ornate Treaty Room. "If not, Trump will place the U.S.in violation of its commitments and be responsible for unilaterally killing the nuclear deal".

In February, President Trump undermined the multilateral deal by introducing a new round of sanctions against Iran following the country's successful test-launch of a ballistic missile, which Washington said was a breach of the JCPOA.

Qatar royals among 26 hostages freed after delicate deal struck
Their release comes days as part of a complex deal that includes evacuation of four besieged towns in Syria. He said Qatari officials were given assurances about the well-being of the hostages during negotiations.


Under the groundbreaking agreement brokered by the Obama administration and allies, the USA and other European and western countries lifted sanctions against Iran in exchange for the Shia state opening up its nuclear sites to inspectors and dismantling centrifuges which the Obama administration claimed will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Iran has defended its nuclear programme as purely civilian and its supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei warned in November that Tehran would retaliate if the United States breached the nuclear agreement.

The secretary of state later added that Donald Trump's administration has no plans on "passing the buck" to a future administration on Iran.

Iranian Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo fired back at what he called the "unsubstantiated" US charges, saying the United States is waging a "misleading propaganda campaign" against his country. Moreover, Iran has consistently denied that they are developing nuclear weapons despite accusations made by the United States.

Lu, while not directly referring to Tillerson's comments, said China hopes all parties could ensure the nuclear deal was implemented, appropriately handle disagreements and make positive contributions to nuclear non-proliferation and peace and stability in the Middle East. Digest it and tell me if it doesn't sound like exactly the sort of thing an administration would say before asking Congress for an AUMF. The French election is being seen as a bellwether for whether the move toward nationalism and separation from the European Union, displayed by Britain's move to leave the EU, will continue spreading to other European countries. The deal was approved at the level of the UN Security Council, therefore, Trump has to convince, at least, China and Russian Federation to review the deal. But he said a strong Europe is "very, very important" to the United States. "It shouldn't have been signed", said Trump here at a joint press conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. Still, the White House is eager to tout progress on the litany of agenda items he promised to fulfill in his first 100 days, despite setbacks including court bans on his proposed immigration limits and a high-profile failure in repealing and replacing the current health care law. And then we saw what was said did not materialize.

Trump is approaching his 100th day in office, a benchmark often cited to measure a new administration's achievements.

Trump also voiced optimism that the US had successfully enlisted China to try to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.
