Iran says it won't accept Trump's demands to change nuclear deal

Trump said in a statement'Despite my strong inclination I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal

President Donald Trump on Friday said he is extending sanctions relief to Iran under the 2015 nuclear deal, but for the last time. "Rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, the United States must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran". The U.N. nuclear watchdog agency has repeatedly found Iran is complying with those obligations. And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately.

Supporters expressed skepticism that the deal will survive in its current form.

Three months ago, Trump answered a congressional deadline by refusing to "certify" US participation in the deal.

In its statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry reiterated that position.

"The Trump administration's policy announced today sets impossible standards that would ultimately isolate the United States rather than isolating the regime in Tehran", he said.

Iran has said that it will retaliate against the sanctions imposed by the United States on the head of its judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli-Larijani.

Trump has called the 2015 deal struck by the Obama administration with five other nations and Iran the "worst deal ever negotiated".

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

He is demanding Iran allow immediate inspections at nuclear sites on request, and that so-called "sunset clauses", which see the restrictions on nuclear development relax after ten years, be removed.

Klopp says Coutinho replacement needs to be correct player
Roberto is known for his flexibility and is fit for playing in the two positions which is something that Klopp is searching for. Brazilian Coutinho was unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday, following his £145million move from Liverpool last weekend.

But Trump's refusal to certify the deal to Congress did not pull the USA out of the deal itself.

The Treasury Department placed sanctions on the head of the Iranian judiciary and a notorious prison.

The European Union's foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, said, "The deal is working".

In a freakish kicker in the waiver announcement, the United States indicated it hopes to rewrite much of the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and to get its European allies, who wholly back the deal as it is, to do the bargaining for them, he said.

His comments on Sunday came just days after US President Donald Trump threatened to withdraw from the deal if its "disastrous flaws" were not fixed.

The British and German foreign ministries said they had taken note of the decision and would confer with France before deciding on a course of action.

The JCPOA aimed to gradually lift economic and diplomatic sanctions on Tehran in exchange for Iran ending its nuclear program.

The legislation is required to include certain "triggers" which will automatically lead to a reimposition of the sanctions if Iran fails to apply.

"This could be one of Washington's big foreign policy mistakes, a big miscalculation in American policy", he said.
