Tehran says will retaliate against Washington sanctions on chief judge

Tehran says will retaliate against Washington sanctions on chief judge

Iranian authorities said Saturday they won't accept any changes to its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers after President Trump vowed to pull out of the accord in a few months if European allies did not fix its "terrible flaws". Trump, despite his repeated efforts, has failed to undermine the accord ...

Trump's declaration puts great pressure on Britain, France and Germany, the European signatories to nuclear pact with Iran.

Hailed by Obama as key to stopping Iran from building a nuclear bomb, the deal lifted economic sanctions in exchange for Teheran limiting its nuclear program.

The 2015 deal, he said, "is not renegotiable".

Trump said that any legislation regarding Iran must demand worldwide inspections when requested at all sites, must ensure Iran doesn't come close to possessing a nuclear weapon, must not have any expiration date and must state that long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs are inseparable.

Russian Federation on Saturday said Washington would be making a grave mistake by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, adding that Moscow would work hard to keep the landmark agreement alive.

"JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, USA must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran", Zarif tweeted immediately after Trump's speech.

The Republican leader grudgingly agreed to sign sanctions waivers, ensuring Washington will live up to its commitments for another 120 days, but he cautioned it would be "for the last time".

One senior administration official said Trump would be open to remaining in a modified deal if it were made permanent.

"The UK has a clear position on the Iran nuclear deal: we regard it as a crucial agreement that makes the world a safer place by neutralizing the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran", the British Foreign Office said.

A decision to withhold a waiver would have effectively ended the deal that limits Iran's nuclear programme.

"We are gradually coming to the conclusion that an internal decision by the United States to leave the (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) has already been made or is close to being made", Ryabkov said in an interview with Interfax news agency.

America's allies see the accord as the best way to thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions and a victory for multilateral diplomacy.

He paired Friday's concession with other, targeted sanctions on Iran for human rights abuses and ballistic missile development.

Britain, France and Germany called on Trump on Thursday to uphold the pact.

United Nations inspectors have certified Iran's compliance with the deal nine times, most recently in November.
