Sanctions Could Derail Boeing Deal With Iran Airlines

Donald Trump grants sanctions relief to Iran one last time

"Today, I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", Mr. Trump continued.

USA officials and others familiar with the administration's deliberations told the Associated Press that Mr. Trump is likely to back the accord for now but that he may pair his decision with new, targeted sanctions on Iranian businesses and people. 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.

"Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal", Trump said in a statement. Now, the president also said in that October 13 statement - he also said at the time that his administration would work with the Congress and with the European allies to come up with ways to raise the price, not just on issues of transparency but actually to affect the ballistic missile testing, to affect Iran's behavior, its regional destabilizing behavior in the region.

"Trump's policy & today's announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement", Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said in a tweet on Friday.

Speaking ahead of an expected announcement from the Trump administration this week on whether it will keep sanctions on Iran suspended in line with the 2015 deal, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian on Thursday appealed to US allies to "scrupulously abide by" its commitments.

This would involve negotiations between the U.S. and its European allies rather than talks with Iran, the official said.

As the deadline to approve a fresh set of waivers drew near, the gulf between Mr Trump's worldview and those of his aides and allies was freshly exposed.

Iran warned in August that it could return "within five days" to high-level enrichment if the United States pulled out of the deal.

Against the Patriots , he is going to need to do the same. "I'm just happy to still be playing in January", he added. The victor of this game earns the honor of being the sacrificial lamb for the Patriots in the AFC Championship game.

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

"The deal is working, it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear programme in check and under close surveillance", Mrs Mogherini said.

Measures to isolate and pressure Iran partly "by spotlighting human-rights abuses, corruption, support to terrorism and militant proxies, progress on their ballistic missile program, which is still subject to United Nations sanctions - all of that can be undertaken right away", said Juan Zarate, a former assistant secretary for terrorist financing and financial crimes at the Treasury Department.

At a meeting with Iran, Britain, France, and Germany, convened by the EU's top diplomat Federica Mogherini, the European powers that helped negotiate the 2015 accord will reassure Tehran they remain committed to it.

The Treasury Department also issued new sanctions against 14 people and entities involved with the country's ballistic missile programs and the government's recent crackdown on protesters.

He was prepared to back a modification to the existing deal if it were made permanent, one official said.

"We know the European Union and other powers want to keep the nuclear deal, nearly no matter what", David Pollock, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, told Xinhua.

The Islamic Republic of Iran and the worldwide community have said that the JCPOA is an global valid document and is non-renegotiable under any circumstances. "It is also necessary that our United States allies do the same and should be seen doing the same", Le Drian said after meeting with his Iranian, British, German and French counterparts.
