Pres. Trump Seeks to Renegotiate Iran Nuclear Deal

Trump administration officials have been floating the idea that they would want to renegotiate the deal to make the limitations on the Iranian nuclear program permanent. That kind of position, he said, contradicted the premise of any negotiated deal.

Trump has in recent weeks renewed his criticism of the deal, which he attacked vehemently on the campaign trail. Thanks for stopping by.

Under a law passed by Congress, the president must certify every 90 days whether Iran remains in compliance with the landmark, 2015 pact, which eased severe economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for the country freezing its nuclear activities.

Rouhani also responded to the USA threat to scrap the deal, saying Iran would respond to any breach of the JCPOA. It cuts off its pathways to a bomb.

Inspectors from the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency the IAEA, which monitors the deal's implementation, have found Iran consistently in technical compliance. That's now been pushed back.

"It is more important than ever that the worldwide architecture for arms control and disarmament does not crumble".

"North Korea is getting £2bn a year from Iran".

Trump is due to report to the US Congress on October 15 on whether or not he believes that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal.

In particular, he objects to the "sunset clause" that would see Iran resume some enrichment from 2025. The EU's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said that after the talks everyone was in agreement that there have been no violations.

Responding to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's allegations that Russian Federation is impeding efforts aimed at the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, including by "seeking to weaken the International Atomic Energy Agency's independence in investigating clandestine nuclear programs", Nebenzia said the claims took him aback.

So all of that will still be there.

"The options that we say we have at our disposal ... will never be going towards nuclear weapons", Rouhani said.

What Washington needs now, in standing up to North Korea, Iran, and Russian Federation, is a coherent foreign policy of tough, behind-the-scenes diplomacy that works with friends and allies on further isolating Pyongyang, while enforcing the Iran deal and curbing Tehran's behavior in the Mideast. "Do we really want two of these situations?"

Had we got engaged in a negotiation trying to bring everything on the table with Iran into the negotiation, we never would have gotten anywhere. It would still be continuing to do these other things. An incisive look at all the disputes and conflicts around the work reveals that the U.S. is connected to them in some way or the other.

The meeting was the first encounter between U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don't think you've heard the last of it. "They were told clearly and definitively that the nuclear deal can not be renegotiated".

"I think that's a big deal". So that's not actually a surprise.

The Iranian leader pointed to the deal's economic benefits, worldwide backing for the pact and the potential fallout if the deal is undermined.

"The IAEA, which monitors the agreement, has said that repeatedly". It remains to be seen how numerous conservative and neoliberal governments that Trump is courting in Latin America will be comfortable aligning themselves with the Trump Administration against Venezuela and Cuba.

So far, the Trump administration has agreed to the deal twice, but White House officials said the president may now refuse to comply.

"It's time to start now, without losing any time, not waiting when the logic of confrontation prevails", he said.

CHANG: Tony Blinken was the deputy secretary of state under President Obama.

KELLY: All right. Ben Rhodes, thank you.

BLINKEN: Good to be here.
