Trump seen stopping short of killing Iran nuclear deal

We must protect the Iran nuclear pact.

To counter Trump's reluctance to waive sanctions, sources said, top aides are proposing that the president instead impose new targeted sanctions on Iranian businesses and people related to its ballistic-missile and nuclear programs.

The president is a fierce critic of the accord and refused to certify Iran's compliance with the deal at the last deadline in October.

Speaking before a meeting with his counterparts from Iran, Britain and France and the European Union's top diplomat, Gabriel said: "We should separate two things from each other: we want to preserve the nuclear deal with Iran... and the hard role Iran has in the region".

A day before USA president Donald Trump is expected to continue granting Iran a reprieve from sanctions over its nuclear program, while again signaling his displeasure with the worldwide nuclear deal that lifted the penalties, the EU-28 foreign ministers met their Irani counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif in Brussels.

And now, when the most vigorous critic has publicly changed his mind, it's another demonstration of the technology's worthiness. Morgan Chase Chief Executive spoke about Silicon Valley's startups as new rivals that are " looking to compete with banks ".

Iran on January 10 warned that it would pull out of the nuclear deal if the United States leaves.

"Killing or sticking with the Iran deal isn't just about Iran".

"France is determined to keep in place the Vienna accord..."

Asked if there is a threat to the deal due to US President Donald Trump's opposition, Gabriel replied: "We are convinced that the JCPOA has to be preserved". U.S. officials told CNN that the President's top national security advisers are encouraging him to renew the waivers.

Trump will have a series of decisions to make on the deal in the days following the first waiver deadline on Friday. European countries are banking on the deal, as many began investing in Iran after the sanctions were lifted.

Paul posted an apology on his Twitter account and announced on January 4 that he would be taking some time off to change his ways. For the video, Paul and his pals set out to camp for a night in Japan's Aokigahara forest, which is known for suicide incidents.

Mr Trump said they included the deal's "sunset clauses", one of which allows for the lifting of restrictions on Iran's uranium enrichment programme after 2025.

The State Department has threatened to take punitive action against Iranian officials who engaged in violence and other aggressive tactics to crush the protests.

Another US official said Trump was expected by some officials to renew the sanctions waivers but stressed that no final decision had been made.

Britain's foreign secretary says alongside the pact, Tehran must be pressed on other issues.

Such measures, said Mr. Zarate, "would be consistent with the agreement's allowance for the application of non-nuclear sanctions".

"None of U.S. allies in the region give the same rights to their people and interestingly neither USA government nor United States congress are anxious about lack of democracy in these countries", said the Iranian top diplomat referring to Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain which are ruled by monarchs with no parliament and election in their political system.
