Iran will not renegotiate nuclear deal, asserts foreign minister

His theatrics were stunning, nearly Tony-worthy, but what did Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prove this week? Israel has also strongly criticized the accord and presented new intelligence this week alleging Iran concealed a nuclear weapons program.

U.S. President Donald Trump has all but chose to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord by May 12 but exactly how he will do so remains unclear, two White House officials and a source familiar with the administration's internal debate said on Wednesday.

Netanyahu says the deal is based on falsehoods and is thus illegitimate.

"Even if USA allies, especially the Europeans, try to revise the deal. one of our options will be withdrawing from it", state television quoted Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Iran's supreme leader, as saying.

The deal's critics are unmoved, and they are pushing for what they consider a long-overdue confrontation with Tehran.

Probably not. The Trump administration could claim that Iran has violated the deal and that other United Nations sanctions ought to be reinstated. Obama wanted to avert another war in the Middle East, and he also was reaching out a hand of friendship to the Islamic Republic of Iran in the idealistic hope of changing its behavior.

As for a future deal, US officials were encouraged by a four-point proposal offered by French President Emmanuel Macron last week that echoed many of their demands. Pompeo did not indicate whether or not the evidence proved that Iran was not complying with the nuclear deal.

In fact, Netanyahu's presentation had been quietly coordinated with the White House. Although the attacks were not as severe as anticipated by many observers, they were sufficient to reinforce Iran's resolve to not negotiate with the West over its missile capabilities.

Here are some things to know about the accord - and what is expected if Trump decides to pull out. The GOP openly opposed the administration at every turn and took aggressive, unprecedented actions to blow up talks between the U.S., Iran and other major world powers. Sen. He also added that Iran had in the past strived to fit a nuclear payload onto its Shahab 3 ballistic missile.

"In contrast, the USA has consistently violated the agreement, especially by bullying others from doing business with Iran", Zarif asserted.

The White House official said Trump was "most of the way there toward pulling out of the deal but he hasn't made the decision" and that he "seems poised to do it but until a decision is made by this president it is not final".

Technically, Trump should determine by Could 12 whether or not to resume "waivers" suspending a number of the U.S. sanctions on Iran.

"The response from some Europeans has been to offer the United States more concessions, from our pocket", he continued. China and Russian Federation would have a chance at being the "good guys", seizing an opening to expand cooperation with Iran at a time when American diplomacy might instead be looking for ways to drive wedges among them. But they do provide a ton of new information about Iranian lying, cheating and deception.
