Germany watching Trump's Iran decision with 'great concern'

Germany watching Trump's Iran decision with 'great concern'”

The landmark agreement capped Iran's uranium enrichment levels in return for the lifting of global sanctions.

It was sealed in July 2015 after 18 months of negotiations by the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council - the U.S., Britain, China, France and Russian Federation - as well as Germany.

Iran and the United States have long accused each other of supporting terrorist groups in the Middle East, such as in Syria and Iraq.

In recent weeks, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test, all in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.

"Iran's actions have probably provoked America, such as testing missiles and similar things", said Mehdi Shakeri, 42, who imports and sells auto parts.

Jaafari cautioned the USA government of the dire consequences of imposing new sanction against Iran. Together with France, Britain, the United States, China and Russian Federation, we proved that diplomacy and dialogue are stronger than conflict.

We know that Iranian self-inspections, allowed under secret side-deals to which we aren't privy, result in glowing reports of how well Iran is complying with its obligations.

The presidential administration was previously instructed to review its policy on Iran, not only looking at Tehran's compliance with the nuclear deal but also its behavior in the region.

Lawmakers say Trump isn't going to immediately announce new nuclear sanctions, which are prohibited by the deal, and instead will refer the matter to Congress.

While congress has not indicated that they will not kill the deal outright, despite a Republican-dominated congress, it is believed that they plan to use the decertification to impose sanctions on other areas.

"We have achieved benefits that are irreversible".

Administration officials have been signaling publicly and privately that they will ask Congress to pass new legislation on Iran following Trump's announcement. Under the 2015 deal, Iran agreed to limit its disputed nuclear programme in return for the easing of economic sanctions.

"[Rouhani] will find it increasingly hard to balance the interests of the hardliners at home and the broader interests of his voters who want the deal to survive and want to see sanctions removed in their country entirety so they can travel".

A senior USA administration official told Financial Times that President Donald Trump will designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization some time this week.

A September 2017 article by United States outlet, Quartz, highlighted the risks to U.S. and European manufacturers, such as Boeing and Airbus, which penned deals with Iranian carriers to supply hundreds of aircraft after restrictions were lifted. Introducing sanctions would effectively end the agreement.

It is unclear what Congress will do if the deal gets sent to it. "If the United States violates [the nuclear deal], the entire world will condemn America, not Iran". One deal has gone through, with a 20-year agreement signed in July to develop South Pars phase 11 with Total (50.1 percent) and China National Petroleum Corp (19.9 percent, with Petropars owning 30 percent).

On Monday, the head of the United Nations nuclear watchdog said Iran was complying with the deal. Today, in view of the agreement's ruinous consequences, they are morally indefensible.
