Iran nuclear deal not 'derailed', will play constructive role: China

President Trump Ignore the Iran Deal Trump Lets The Iran Deal Live — For Another Few Months At Least

Officials said the administration will discuss the changes it is seeking with Europeans but will not talk directly with Iran.

The pact is underpinned on the U.S. side by a presidential waiver of nuclear-related sanctions on Iran's central bank. It gave Iran far too much in exchange for far too little. These areas fall outside the scope of the nuclear deal.

Zarif tweeted that Trump's policy and his announcement on Friday amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement.

"Our worst expectations are coming true", Ryabkov said Saturday.

That doesn't seem likely to happen; the other European nations in the agreement don't want to renegotiate the deal without Iran's consent - and Iran's foreign minister says the deal "is not renegotiable". Widespread protests in Iran over the last few weeks have focused on the country's faltering economy, however, as well as high unemployment and government corruption.

The landmark accord was signed between six global powers and Iran in 2015.

"We are cutting off the regime s money flows to terrorists".

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

Iran "will not accept any amendments in this agreement, be it now or in the future, and it will not allow any other issues to be linked to the JCPOA", the foreign ministry said in a statement, using the 2015 deal's technical name.

If the United States really makes such a move to violate the deal, Iran will show an astonishing reaction, he added.

A statement from French President Emmanuel Macron on January 13 called for the "necessary respect" of the nuclear deal.

Mr Trump laid out several conditions to keep the US in the deal.

Washington is expected to impose fresh penalties against Russia as soon as early February for its alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential vote. The new legislation also limits Trump's own ability to lift any sanctions against Russia.

The entities sanctioned include Iran's Supreme Council of Cyberspace and its subsidiary, the National Cyberspace Center, which police the Internet, restricting access to websites that challenge the government.

During that four-month period, he wants Congress and America's main European allies to draw up a new deal - without negotiating with Tehran - to replace the 'disastrous flaws' in the current agreement.

And as every cycle of "will he waive, won't he waive" passes, Paton Walsh said, the bedrock of understanding upon which the deal is based erodes yet further.
