European Union expresses commitment to Iran nuclear deal

European Union expresses commitment to Iran nuclear deal

However, the officials said that Trump's top national security aides seem to have convinced him to waive the nuclear-linked sanctions, while imposing new sanctions to punish the Regime over weapons, alleged terrorism and human-rights abuses.

US President Donald Trump is expected to extend sanctions relief for Iran this week as part of the 2015 nuclear deal, amid widespread speculation about whether he would kick-start a process that would see the accord unravel.

While Mr Trump appeared poised to offer the deal something of a lifeline, the U.S. administration is also ready to impose a host of new sanctions against Iran and its proxies.

"We agree on this approach, we want to protect (the deal) against every possible decision that might undermine it", Germany's Sigmar Gabriel said alongside his French and British counterparts and European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini after meeting Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Armed robbers raid Ritz hotel in Paris stealing jewellery worth 'millions'
Armed robbers stole $5.62 million worth of jewels from the Ritz Paris on Wednesday, leading police on a manhunt for two suspects. Police would not confirm reports that the jewels were stolen from a hotel shop or that the robbers were armed with hatchets.

"I don't think anybody has so far produced a better a way of preventing the Iranians from going ahead with the acquisition of their military nuclear capability", he said.

Despite Trump's attempts to discredit the nuclear accord-officially titled the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)-as "the worst deal ever", inspectors and diplomats have repeatedly concluded that Iran has complied with the agreement and that it has been extremely effective. 'We are in the process of trying to deliver on the promise he made to fix it'. 'The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. Instead, they are the result of years of structural economic problems, poor governance, corruption and domestic political disagreements. And Trump's policies-from the travel ban to his looming threat to rip up the nuclear deal in mid-January-are the wrong way to deal with it.

Q&A Why is Trump hostile to Iran?

If he does allow the punitive measures to go back into effect, Iran will accuse the United States of breaking the deal, under which Tehran accepted restrictions on its nuclear program.

India Not Eyeing Anyone's Territory: Declares PM Modi
Earlier today, addressing the first PIO-Parliamentarians Conference here, Modi said, "India is changing, India is transforming". Today, bodies like the World Bank, IMF and Moody's are looking at India in a very positive way.

But the only thing this rhetoric tangibly achieved last week was to give Iran's leadership an excuse to pin the unrest on outside actors, chiefly the United States. But he refused to follow the same advice in October, even though the International Atomic Energy Agency continued to report that Iran was living up to its essential obligations under the JCPOA. Iran hawks worry the IAEA, fearing a confrontation with Iran, won't even ask for such an inspection. Barack Obama has been raked over the coals for allegedly not supporting Iranian protesters in 2009, but two weeks after the most recent protests began, Trump's ostensible "support" has not made any positive difference for Iranians.

MARTIN: The deadline for reimposing these sanctions on Iran is tomorrow.

"In the event we are not able to reach a solution working with Congress and our allies", he said over the fall, "then the agreement will be terminated". "It's been four months and Congress has yet to deal with the issue".

Steinberg ventured a prediction, saying, "It's guess work with Trump, but If I had to put money down, and I don't want to, I would estimate that he'll decide to what he did last time, because it worked".
