European Union urgesTrump to stick to nuclear deal with Iran

ATTA KENARE

Bhala, the Brenneisen Distinguished Professor at the University of Kansas School of Law, said the announcement is important in that "it preserves the July 2015 Nuclear Deal, for now, which the other countries in the deal also support".

Trump in October of past year said the USA would not certify the Iran nuclear deal, and pushed it to Congress to fix the deal's "serious flaws" in order to protect the American people.

While Trump approved the sanctions waiver, the Treasury Department made a decision to impose new, targeted sanctions against 14 Iranian entities and people.

Letting the waivers lapse would have violated the 2015 agreement that Iran reached with world powers in exchange for curbing its nuclear program, said the report. Bhala can discuss why the president's position is wrong as well as the requirements of the deal for the U.S., Iran and global allies. Reimposing sanctions would mean violating the Iran nuclear deal on the United States side.

President will, for the final time, waive sanctions against, extending the life of an worldwide nuclear accord that the commander in chief disavowed three months ago, according to senior administration officials.

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

Earlier in October, Trump has threatened to terminate the 2015 Iran nuclear deal if Congress and United States allies fail to amend the agreement by fixing serious flaws in significant ways.

Trump had certified the deal twice before, and senior officials have grudgingly said Iran is complying.

Trump had faced a Friday deadline to decide on whether to waive the sanctions.

White House is working with Congress on a US legislation, which seeks provisions to permanently prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and subject Iran's long-range missile program to severe sanctions.

Iran's Foreign Minister, Mohammed Javad Zarif, tweeted Friday that the United States "must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran", in reference to the 2015 nuclear deal agreed between Iran and world powers, including Russian Federation.

"In a background briefing with reporters, senior administration officials also warned that this will be [the] last such waiver, calling on a follow-up deal with Europeans and a legislative fix from Congress", The Hill reported.

Playing for the fourth time this season as he returns from a right hip injury, Thomas scored four points in 24 minutes. IN shut out the Cavs over the final 3:57 and twice stopped James when he could have given the Cavs the lead.

Mr Trump has argued behind the scenes that the nuclear deal makes the United States look weak, a senior U.S. official said.

Well, I think there has been an interesting change in the conditions on the ground in Iran.

Critics of the deal in Congress have also proposed amending legislation to ensure that USA sanctions would "snap back" automatically if Iran carried out certain actions.

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

"The United States will not stand by while the Iranian regime continues to engage in human rights abuses and injustice", Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said in a statement.

The Trump administration also said it hopes for an amendment to congressional legislation that imposes triggers on Iran of its own- and that for the first time characterizes Tehran's ballistic missile program as "inseparable" from its nuclear work, bringing with it harsh sanctions.
