Trump not to re-impose sanctions on Iran

Domingo, 14 Ene, 2018

The statement from his ministry further criticised new sanctions on 14 individuals announced by the US Treasury on Friday over human rights issues and Iran's missile programme.

Senior US administration officials told reporters Trump would work with Europeans on a follow-on deal to enshrine triggers that the Iranian government could not exceed related to ballistic missiles.

He says European, Chinese, and Russian diplomats who were involved in the negotiations believe it's the best deal that was possible and that the United States should stick with it.

Iran said on Saturday it would not accept any changes to its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Bhala has a global reputation in the scholarship of international trade law, have lectured around the world and has published dozens of books and journal articles including the leading textbook Modern GATT Law, "International Trade Law", "Understanding Islamic Law (Shari'a)" and "TPP Objectively: Law, Economics, and National Security of History's Largest, Longest Free Trade Agreement".

US President Donald Trump on Friday delivered an ultimatum to European signatories of the deal to fix the "terrible flaws" of the agreement with Iran, or the United States would pull out.

Trump in October chose not to certify the country's compliance and warned he might ultimately terminate the accord.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded, saying that the deal is not renegotiable and that Trump's stance amounts to "desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement".

He also deemed the new sanctions as "illogical" and a violation of the nuclear deal, reported Iran's ISNA news agency.

Trump plans to negotiate a separate agreement to address flaws he says exists in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the official name for the 2015 agreement.

The President laid out several conditions for a fix to the deal that would keep the United States in.

Trump had lengthy discussions on Thursday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson anmd other top advisers about the deal, which was reached during Barack Obama's presidency.

Trump said:"This is a last chance". Iran must allow "immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors", he said, and "sunset" provisions imposing limits on Iran's nuclear program must not expire.
