Trump Extends Sanctions Waiver On Iran For Another 90 Days

Iran calls fresh US sanctions illegal, hostile

Iran said on Saturday it would retaliate against the new sanctions, although it did not specify how.

Iran also rejected any changes to its nuclear deal with world powers, according to the BBC.

The president is designating 14 Iranian individuals and entities with new sanctions unrelated to the nuclear deal, including the head of Iran's judiciary, a senior administration official said.

But Trump said it would be the last time he would do so unless the "terrible flaws" in the 2015 nuclear deal.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had earlier said on Twitter that the deal was "not renegotiable" and that Trump's move "amounts to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement".

The EU's foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, said, "The deal is working - it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear program in check and under close surveillance".

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker has been working on amending a USA law to include "trigger points" that if crossed by Iran would automatically bring back United States sanctions.

On Sunday, the diplomat will visit one of the guerrilla reintegration camps in the department of Meta and talk with demobilized FARC combatants.

Retired US military officers, members of the US Congress and former US ambassadors were among 52 US national security experts who signed a letter released on Monday urging Trump not to jeopardize the deal with Iran. The administration accuses Larijani of being responsible for the violent crackdown on dissidents in Iran during recent protests. Officials, congressional aides and outside administration advisers said the president would likely extend the sanctions waivers, citing progress in amending USA legislation that governs Washington's participation in the accord. Specifically, Trump has called for a removal of "sunset clauses" in the deal, which allow Iran to slowly restart nuclear efforts throughout the next decade.

Despite his hatred of the Iran nuclear deal, President has left the accord intact for now - but has given European allies 120 days to agree to a new deal or the USA will pull out.

In October, Trump said that he would not certify the deal, a dramatic but largely ceremonial gesture that he is expected to repeat this week. Iranian officials have said they are not considering making the missile program negotiable. But there will be strings attached, they said.

In turn, Iran would be allowed to lift all nuclear-related economical sanctions, freeing up tens of billions of dollars in oil revenue and frozen assets.

Iranian foreign ministry says it will not accept any changes to nuclear deal after Trump's latest threat to withdraw.

Trump also wants Congress to impose new strictures on dealing with Iran, including a law that would explicitly tie Iran's missile programs to its nuclear program.
