European ambassadors to USA back Iran nuclear pact

European ambassadors to USA back Iran nuclear pact

Instead of having two diametrically opposed objectives, we made a decision to have a single objective, and that is Iran should have a nuclear program that will never produce nuclear weapons.

"Iran didn't have a single missile to work as a deterrent against its citizens, its civilians being target of nearly daily missile attacks".

Britain's ambassador, Kim Darroch, pointed to a last week meeting between Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May in NY and said the two sides devoted about half their discussion to Iran, although the USA president refrained from revealing his decision.

The JCPOA caps Iran's centrifuge operations and slows the stockpiling of uranium needed to make a bomb.

The most obvious being India, which has never signed the treaty because the 1962 border war with China was still fresh in their memory and they wanted a deterrent.

Last week, Netanyahu highlighted the alleged dangers of Tehran's nuclear programme during his speech at the United Nation's General Assembly, threatening Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who he termed "the dictator of Iran".

"The nuclear deal is done", Zarif added.

The statement, signed by more than fifty political, diplomatic, military and civil society leaders from the Asia Pacific region, said, "A unilateral finding of non-compliance by the United States would cast doubt on the integrity of the global nuclear monitoring system of the IAEA, which has assessed that Iran remains compliant". It will be hard for the global community to impose sanctions on Iran because of the latter's enormous influence.Iran is watching what Trump will do in North Korea, as this will represent an indirect message to Tehran. "Frankly, that deal was an embarrassment to the U.S".

If Trump does not recertify by October 16, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions suspended under the accord.

"So for the Europeans to tell America to remain in the JCPOA in exchange for convincing and bringing Iran to the table to negotiate about other topics?" In return, Riyadh must forget the delusion of removing Tehran from the region. They object to Iranian meddling in regional affairs, but their opposition reflects their respective national interests - not the larger interest embodied in the JCPOA. If not, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to re-impose sanctions waived under the agreement or do nothing. "As a result, the "decertify but remain in the deal" option is actually a clever ploy to ensure the USA never withdraws from the nuclear deal".

"The agreement is working and that is the unanimous opinion on the European side", he said.

By criticizing the nuclear accord with Iran Trump is trying to get new concessions from Tehran, however, experts believe that it could result in mounting tensions in the Middle East since renegotiation of the deal is likely to disturb the political balance in Iran.

Indeed, the precedent would be alarming and would undercut efforts to address those other problems.

General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testifies before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, US September 26, 2017. "Over the years, we've seen photographs of North Korean and Iranian officials in each other's countries, and we've seen all kinds of common hardware".
