Iran threatens USA to retaliate for sanctions against chief judge

Iran on Saturday slammed the Trump Administration's latest move to rewrite the 2015 nuclear agreement and slapping of sanctions on 14 Iranian individuals and entities, saying the global deal is non-negotiable.

"Today, I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", Trump said.

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 among Iran and world powers, including Russian Federation. However, it is worthy of note that all these areas that Iranians are complaining about are outside the scope of the nuclear deal.

Third, unlike the nuclear deal, these provisions must have no expiration date.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif describe Trump's decision as "desperate attempt" to "undermine" the deal. Trump has repeatedly criticized the accord, while Iran has accused the US of failing to comply with it.

Even though Mr Trump has now imposed a 120-day deadline on his European partners, it does not appear like they have the appetite to negotiate a follow-on agreement regarding Iran.

Zarif said, "Such words stream out of the mouth of an individual who deems himself the [chief] executive of a country; that culture, that orientation and approach is an obstacle in the way of a paradigm of inclusive dialogue". "Rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, US must bring itself into full compliance- just like Iran".

The biggest name included in the new sanctions list was Sadeq Larijani, head of the Iranian judiciary and brother of Ali Larijani, who is speaker of the Iranian parliament.

Iran will not accept any commitment beyond what has been mentioned in the JCPOA and will not accept any change in the deal either.

Sandra also claimed that "the perpetrator told her he held a grudge against her husband because of work-related matters". Garner told police that she saw a masked man holding a gun inside her house, who she said threatened to kill her.

Iran slammed US President Donald Trump's decision to target the head of its judiciary with sanctions, saying the move warrants a "severe" response. Continuing to maintain and implement the Iran nuclear deal is the responsibility of all parties concerned, and is the common wish of the worldwide community, said Wang, adding that this will help uphold global non-proliferation regime, maintain regional peace and stability as well as solve other hot issues in the world. "But I think it's hard". "Busy four months ahead".

The landmark agreement signed between six world powers is officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

European signatories to the deal have pressured the United States to stick to the accord.

The Foreign Ministry rejected any changes to the JCPOA.

"The deeply flawed Obama "Iran deal" should not be a grant of immunity to Iran from sanctions related to non-nuclear activities", Rubio said in a statement.

The EU said it would hold internal consultations and was "committed to the continued full and effective implementation" of the deal. "The Iran nuclear deal makes the world safer". Teheran categorically denies it is seeking to develop atomic weapons.

The president decided Friday to continue waiving - that is, easing - some economic sanctions against Iran.

As with immigration, the president has thrown the proverbial ball back into Congress's lap, hoping to obtain from the legislators a bill requiring a rewrite of the deal before he must certify again.

And Russia spoke out strongly in favor of the accord, calling it "the result of a consensus among many parties".
