Tillerson compares Iran nuclear deal with failed North Korea policy
While disparaging the nuclear deal and accusing Iran of fomenting violence and terrorism throughout the Middle East, Trump has avoided committing to abandoning the agreement, a move that would be staunchly opposed by US businesses and European allies. "An unchecked Iran has the potential to travel the same path as North Korea and to take the world along with it".
Iran has said many times that if the USA imposed additional sanctions, that would violate the nuclear deal and Iran would no longer feel bound by its terms.
During a press conference with Italy's Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni on Thursday, President Trump indicated that he plans to hold Iran accountable for failing to live up to the nuclear deal forged under the Obama administration. He says that will be determined by an ongoing review.
Trump's criticism came two days after the USA certified that Iran was complying with the deal, which was negotiated during President Barack Obama's presidency.
"They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement, I can tell you that", Trump said.
Iran says the United States continues to frustrate its efforts to rebuild trade ties with the rest of the world through remaining sanctions, and denies any desire to build a nuclear bomb.
The deal's critics, though, say it fails to achieve even that goal because key restrictions on Iran's nuclear development sunset after a decade or more. In each of my conversations with European Union stakeholders, they emphasized their desire for increased trade and investment with Tehran; more diplomacy with Iran to peacefully resolve conflicts; and preserving the JCPOA in its current form.
United passengers to be fully reimbursed
The others did as they were told, but Dao refused and was yanked out of his seat and dragged off the plane by airport security. Passengers were offered at least $800 to leave the flight and make room for United employees who needed the spots.
"I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russian Federation, and the haters are going insane - yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem!" He also said that the Trump administration launched a review of its policy toward Tehran.
As the White House finalizes that review, US officials will offer competing visions for how to deal with the country, and American allies in the Middle East will seek to tilt Washington's preferences in their favor. But the US must decide next month whether to renew a waiver so that Iran can continue receiving sanctions relief.
Tillerson expressed concerns about Tehran's continued support for Syrian President Bashar Assad and its hostility toward Israel.
Japan has less room to compromise with the United States under a bilateral trade deal than under a multilateral agreement like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, its deputy prime minister says, taking a swipe at US attempts to directly pressure Tokyo into opening up heavily protected markets like agriculture.
And now, not even paying attention to its European allies-partners in a nuclear deal with Iran, the new U.S. administration single-handedly decides that the deal has failed.
He recalled that the JCPOA has been initially criticized, including in the United States.
The nuclear agreement, negotiated during Barack Obama's presidency, placed limitations on Iran's nuclear programme in exchange for lifting economic sanctions against Iran. That could mean Trump is looking for other ways to pressure Iran.
