Iran Rejects Report about 'Successor Deal' to JCPOA

Iran Rejects Report about 'Successor Deal' to JCPOA

European and US officials are planning to meet in Berlin in March for talks on Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with major powers, a German Foreign Ministry source said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.

An American legislator has expressed concern over the Trump administration's efforts to sign a nuclear cooperation accord with Saudi Arabia, which is preparing to build its first reactors.

But there's a catch: The Saudis have indicated they might accept such curbs if a separate nuclear deal with its arch-foe Iran is tightened, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

"Our objective is we want to have the same rights as other countries", Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said recently at a security conference in Munich.

The State Department has backed the president's calls, including his demand for global inspections on Iran's nuclear sites.

It seems that competition will be fierce on building Saudi nuclear reactors, in which the United States shows great interest after Russian Federation has applied an official tender to build them.

Final farewell to Sridevi in Mumbai
She chose to take a break from the film industry after her marriage to producer Boney Kapoor and the release of Judaai in 1997. A post-mortem report revealed on February 26 her cause of death was accidental drowning in her hotel bathtub.

Some American agreements with other countries have prohibited the enrichment and reprocessing of uranium in exchange for the use of nuclear technology, and that had scuttled negotiations for Saudi projects during the Obama administration.

The Associated Press, citing anonymous USA officials, reported that the Saudis might be willing to accept curbs on their nuclear abilities only if the nuclear deal with Iran is tightened.

The diplomats said they worry that Trump's scorn for the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), runs so deep that he would find other reasons to pull out.

Besides the USA company Westinghouse, Russian, French, Chinese and South Korean firms have all been seeking the Saudi contracts.

"And the Trump administration must explain more fully... why it is considering compromising" in a potential 123 agreement with Saudi Arabia.

Some E.U. members have expressed opposition to US sanctions on Iran.
