Trump waives Iran nuclear sanctions 'for last time'

Trump on Iran Deal

Tehran has accused Washington of having "crossed all behavioral red lines of the worldwide community", by targeting judiciary chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani.

The 2015 Iran nuclear deal was struck between the U.S., under the administration of former President Barack Obama, Iran and five other countries.

In addition to making this decision, the Trump administration has placed new sanctions on 14 Iranian regime persons and entities, including senior judicial figures in the country.

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

President Donald Trump has extended waivers of nuclear sanctions against Iran.

Trump says they are supporting terrorism.

Trump has criticized the nuclear deal since his election campaign.

The UN panel's report did not say Iran had supplied missiles to the Houthis.

A senior administration official said Trump wants the 2015 Iran deal strengthened with a follow-on agreement in 120 days or the United States will unilaterally withdraw from the worldwide pact.

Graham rips Trump over 'sh*thole,' however referred to as Mexico 'hellhole'
Tom Cotton and David Perdue , said they "do not recall the President saying these comments specifically". But he added that the words attributed to him were "not the language used".

Under US law, the president is required to renew the waiver on sanctions every 120 days.

Iran has dismissed USA calls for the quit of missile program development, and it has stressed that its nuclear program is peaceful.

The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was reached in 2015 among Iran, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and United States) plus Germany and the European Union. "Rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, USA must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran".

Diplomacy Works, a pressure group set up by former secretary of state John Kerry to defend the deal, was scathing.

"We have a very negative stance on yesterday's decisions and statements announced by Washington, our worst expectations are coming true", Ryabkov said commenting on Trump's words, saying that the USA thus demonstrate their preference for the use of power to solve issues.

Trump will next have to deal with these decisions in mid-May.

Iran must allow "immediate inspections at all sites requested by global inspectors", he said, and "sunset" provisions imposing limits on Iran's nuclear programme must not expire.

The Iranian president further hailed the deal as "a long-lasting victory for Iran". In October, Trump decertified the nuclear deal under USA law, saying the sanctions relief was disproportionate to Iran's nuclear concessions, and describing the arrangement as contrary to America's national security interests.

In October, Trump said he would not certify Iran's compliance with the nuclear agreement that was negotiated under the previous administration because it was "in violation of the spirit" of the accord.
