Russia Rejects Trump's Remarks about JCPOA

Iran calls fresh US sanctions illegal hostile

DONALD Trump has given one "last chance" to save the Iran nuclear deal after agreeing not to slap the country with fresh sanctions.

U.S. president says it's the "last chance" for U.S. and Europe to come up with agreement to strengthen 2015 nuclear deal.

Russia, which is also a signatory to the JCPOA, said on Saturday the U.S. would be making a grave mistake by pulling out of Iran's nuclear deal and underlined Moscow's determination to keep the landmark accord intact.

Hailed by Obama as key to stopping Iran from building a nuclear bomb, the deal lifted economic sanctions in exchange for Tehran limiting its nuclear program.

Speaking to reporters earlier Friday, a senior US administration official said Trump will seek "a follow-on or a supplemental agreement" with European partners to strengthen the deal he has vowed to scrap.

"Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal", Mr.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

Most prominent among the 14 individuals and entities named in the new sanctions was Sadegh Amoli Larijani, who heads Iran's judiciary and who is brother to the speaker of the Iranian parliament.

Two senior Trump administration officials told Reuters on Wednesday that the president, a Republican, had privately expressed reluctance to heed the advice of top advisers recommending he not reimpose the suspended sanctions.

Emergency Alert Services Sends Out False Missile Warning
Hawaii residents took shelter where they could and gathered with loved ones in prayer believing they were about to die. A second emergency alert was sent to phones in Hawaii 38 minutes after the initial message confirming the false alarm.

He underlined that the deal that was signed in 2015 between Iran, and the P5+1 - Russia, France, China, Britain, the United States, plus Germany, can not be amended and that Moscow will "oppose any attempts to hamper it".

Iran's foreign ministry said on Tuesday that if the USA withdrew from the agreement, it was ready to give an "appropriate and heavy response".

Parsi added that Trump's actions contradict an obligation under the accord to refrain from interfering with the implementation of the sanctions relief required under the deal.

Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) notes that Iran's Central Bank was not included on the list of sanctions; had the bank been sanctioned it would have been a major blow to the Iranian regime. "It's a campaign that we have carried on since October", referring to Trump's decision not to certify that Tehran is meeting the terms of a pact to stop it developing nuclear weapons.

"We will not remain silent as the Iranian dictatorship represses the basic rights of its citizens and will hold Iran's leaders accountable for any violations", the White House said earlier this week. He has continually made noises about scrapping it and reapplying sanctions, but Congress has so far not gone along with that. Bhala can discuss why the president's position is wrong as well as the requirements of the deal for the U.S., Iran and global allies. The Europeans have said they are willing to consider enhancing sanctions outside the nuclear deal, for instance targeting Iran's missile program and human rights abuses.

Those countries have vowed not to bolt the agreement even if the US pulls out, but Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Thursday that "Iran's continued compliance [is] conditioned on full compliance by the U.S".

White House is working with Congress on a US legislation, which seeks provisions to permanently prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and subject Iran's long-range missile program to severe sanctions.
