Trump Admin Waives Iran Nuclear Sanctions But Announces New Targeted Sanctions

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson left and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis right listen as President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting at the White House Wednesday Jan. 10 2018 in Washington

At Thursday's Oval Office meeting, the president was due to meet Tillerson, the defence secretary, James Mattis, and national security adviser, HR McMaster, who has been scrambling in recent days to coax Republicans and Democrats to work on legislation concerning U.S. adherence to the JCPOA.

The decision is set against a week of anti-establishment demonstrations in Iran that the country's security force said it had quashed on Sunday after arresting the last of the protests organizers. "He intends to work with our European partners on some kind of follow-on agreement that enshrines certain triggers that the Iranian regime can not exceed related to ballistic missiles, related to nuclear breakout period.to inspection and that would have no sunset clause". Then we have to see how the Europeans react to Trump's policy.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has said he expects President Trump to impose sanctions on Iran.

Instead of scuttling the agreement, a senior White House official said Trump wants Washington's European allies to use the 60-day period before sanctions relief again comes up for renewal to agree on tougher measures.

This conflict has been given new focus by the anticipation of Trump's latest decisions, to which the Iranians responded with preemptive threats.

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Trump is signalling that the decision to withdraw from the multilateral accord "is already made or is about to be made", which he called one of the U.S.'s "largest foreign-policy mistakes, one of the largest miscalculations of American politics." according to Interfax.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Nobakht said the Islamic Republic has made various preparations for the possible withdrawal of the United States from the JCPOA.

Mr Trump has repeatedly criticised the deal - reached under his predecessor Barack Obama - as "the worst ever".

A decision to withhold a waiver would have effectively ended the deal between Iran and the other worldwide signatories.

President Donald Trump must decide by Friday whether to continue to back the provisions of the nuclear deal, which effectively opened Iran to worldwide commerce including a tentative deal with US aircraft maker Boeing.

Death toll climbs to 18 in massive Montecito mudslide
The number of confirmed fatalities remains at 17. " Most injuries we saw were related to fast-moving debris", Wilson said. A crew found the body of the 18th victim, Joseph Bleckel, 87, before noon in his home near Romero Canyon, Brown said.

Zarif has said Trump's aggressive stance on the deal and Iran generally have also violated the commitment to "refrain from any policy specifically meant to directly and adversely affect the normalisation of trade and economic relations with Iran" under paragraph 29.

Also on January 8, another Iranian official, this time atomic chief Ali Akbar Salehi, issued a warning.

Iran has said that if the USA walks away from the agreement, it is ready to give an "appropriate and heavy response".

European signatories to the deal have urged the United States to abide by the agreement, which Trump repeatedly has described it as "one of the worst" transactions ever entered into by the US. One official said the actions "will send a very strong message that the United States is not going to tolerate their continued abuses". The other parties to the agreement would have been unlikely to join the United States in reimposing sanctions.

Iran also rejected any changes to its nuclear deal with world powers.

Britain, France and Germany called on Trump on Thursday to uphold the pact.

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.

No other country requires its leaders to periodically justify the deal the way the USA president must, but Congress enacted a law with the requirement out of deep and abiding mistrust of Iran's intentions.

In its most recent quarterly review, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the global nuclear body, said Iran was complying with its terms. After working with the House, the Senate bill was rolled into the law signed by President Trump in August 2017, Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, which included actions against North Korea and Russian Federation as well as Iran.
