Tillerson Says Remains Hopeful Iran Will Negotiate Changes In Nuclear Deal

Senior Senate Democrats have been urging the administration to send the secretary of state, the director of national intelligence, the defense secretary and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and potentially the energy and treasury secretaries, to Capitol Hill sometime before October 6 to brief senators about Iran's behavior under the nuclear deal.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani listens at a news conference during his visit for the United Nations General Assembly, Wednesday Sept. 20, 2017, in NY.

"It's a great honor to have President Abbas from the Palestinian Authority with us, and his representatives, who are working very hard with everybody involved for peace", Mr. Trump said.

"I don't know whether I could have the same kind of matter of fact discussion with North Korea because we don't know how their means of communication and behavior will be".

He offered no path toward making that future a reality. "This is an agreement that prevented a nuclear program and potentially prevented a military intervention", Mogherini said.

"We will hopefully get this resolved through diplomatic means", Mattis told reporters in Washington.

Mogherini appeared to object to President Trump's public criticism of the deal, saying: "The global community can not afford to dismantle an agreement that is working".

"There was no appetite for sanctions against North Korea", Bolton said.

In recent months, tensions have ramped up between Iran and the United States in the Gulf, with both sides accusing each other of provocative naval manoeuvres. But the nuclear powers want no part of it. Prodded by Washington, the United Nations has responded with the toughest economic sanctions on North Korea yet.

Just as importantly, Bolton said the new sanctions turn the screws on China as well.

The last time a Republican president was in power, the United States cheered on a coup d'etat against a Venezuelan socialist leader - Chavez, in 2002.

Instead, Trump has escalated the name calling.

"Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime", he said.

"Why didn't we do this about eight or 10 years ago?" In my view, the U.S. is the biggest rogue state on Earth. Now, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said yesterday that the expectations of the agreement have not been met, and later in the day he met with his Iranian counterpart.

Iran has ruled out talks with the U.S. on revisiting a 2015 nuclear accord as "waste of time", the media reported.

On Wednesday, Trump told reporters that he had reached a decision, but did not elaborate. "The position of Iran throughout the world will be stronger and better than before, and the government of the United States, under the pressure of public sentiments from throughout the world, will not see any benefit". "That's a synonym for doing nothing, and the North Koreans took advantage of it". "Defiance and confrontation, not dialogue, seem to be at the center of Pyongyang's thinking these days", he said. The Europeans, in particular, have expressed their disapproval of Trump's threats and talked about trying to lobby the U.S.to abide by the accord.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday rejected Donald Trump's threatening approach. Iran, he indicated, will not be interested in entering new negotiations.

"I think we have a pretty good shot", Trump said.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres calls the pact "an important step towards the universally held goal of a world free of nuclear weapons". "This is a time for statesmanship".
