Trump to approve Iran nuclear deal for last time

He is demanding Iran allow immediate inspections at nuclear sites on request, and that so-called "sunset clauses", which see the restrictions on nuclear development relax after ten years, be removed.

"The Iran nuclear deal makes the world safer". Would you rather deal with those things with Iran having nuclear weapons or not having them?

Other sanctioned entities included another China-based company, Bochuang Ceramic Corp, and the Iranian firm it sought to supply with a chemical compound used in the transmission of electrical signals.

US President Donald Trump will approve the Iran nuclear deal only one more time before abandoning it if it is not changed, White House officials say. This is a last chance.

"These provisions must have no expiration date". The president also gave European allies 120 days to rework the deal or said the United States would withdraw. However, time after time, President Trump has (perhaps reluctantly) certified that Iran was cooperating with the deal.

Many of those sanctions - including one targeted at Larijani - were in response to the Iranian government's crackdown on peaceful protests that have swept the country in recent weeks.

This would involve negotiations between the United States and its European allies rather than talks with Iran, the official said.

"We are also targeting Iran's ballistic missile program and destabilizing activities, which it continues to prioritize over the economic well-being of the Iranian people", he added. "European partners were unanimous today in our determination to preserve the deal and tackle Iran's disruptive behaviour", added Mr Johnson. Trump has called the accord the "worst deal ever", but he's declined to scrap it while Congress prepares legislation to modify the agreement and his administration marshals worldwide support to increase pressure on Iran. "And crucially, we are calling on all nations to lend similar support to the Iranian people, who are suffering under a regime that is stifling basic freedoms and denying its citizens the opportunity to build better lives for their families - an opportunity that is every human being's God-given right".

It prevents Iran from developing nuclear weapons while offering sanctions relief to allow the Islamic Republic to participate in worldwide commerce and banking.

It has also said it will stick to the accord as long as the other signatories respect it, but will "shred" the deal if Washington pulls out.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Electronic Warfare and Cyber Defense Organization were each labeled for acting on behalf of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard. They should designate Hezbollah, in its entirety, as a terrorist organization.
