US extends sanctions for Iran under nuclear deal

US Extends Sanctions Waivers for Iran, Maintains Cautious Position on Nuclear Deal's Future

The head of Iran's atomic programme previously warned the country would be able to create highly enriched uranium within five days of the U.S. ending the nuclear agreement.

President Rouhani addressed Iranians residing in the United States late on Sunday local time and said: "We need all Iranians everywhere in the world to build our Islamic Iran and all Iranians who love their country must have a role in the future of Iran". And despite White House talk of seeking a "united front" among allies, there's no sign of support among European nations, even those critical of Iranian behavior, such as France.

For years the Bush Administration, and lawmakers who favored a more confrontational approach with Iran, claimed to be open to nuclear negotiations with Iran.

"Iranians residing overseas are cultural, economic and political ambassadors of the Iranian nation and as you supported the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), you can contribute to safeguard Iran's interests and the people's rights", he added. Nevertheless, US officials stated that Washington will announce the continuation of sanctions relief for Iran in accordance with the deal.

The country's most senior general Amir Ali Hajizadeh described Iran's own version as the father of all bombs and said the weapon was now "at our disposal, can be launched from aircraft and they are highly destructive", according to state media.

Tillerson said that sentence explains, in a nutshell, why sanctions were lifted.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson argued on September 15 that Washington must consider the full threat it says Iran poses to the Middle East when formulating its new policy toward Tehran. "None of that I believe is consistent with that preamble commitment".

"We expect the European Union to fully implement the nuclear deal, known as JCPOA, and press the United States to be committed to its obligations to the deal, Rouhani said". He has also recently advanced the argument that Iran was "in default" on the deal because it was not living up to the "expectations" set out in the deal's aspirational preamble. Exiting the deal would also give Iran significant leverage and maneuverability to either end the nuclear restraints of the agreement and ramp up its nuclear program or maintain elements of the deal in exchange for significant concessions from Europe and other parties to the accord.

The worldwide response - the US, Britain, France and Germany warned the United Nations (UN) that Iran had taken "a threatening and provocative step" by testing a rocket capable of delivering satellites into orbit and asked the UN chief to investigate. That's alright in our opinion.

In March 2017, the European Union's foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini stressed that the historic nuclear deal with Iran is an global agreement endorsed by the United Nations, underlining that renegotiation of the treaty is not possible.

Calling the USA approach to the nuclear deal "totally oppressive hounding & cruel" in one tweet, Khamenei accused "corrupt, lying US officials" of hypocrisy.
