Iran nuke deal survives with Trump waivers — The Latest

"I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression, and supporting the Iranian people", he said.

The announcement came as the US Treasury imposed sanctions on 14 Iranian individuals and companies, including the head of Iran's judiciary, over alleged human rights abuses.

By drafting personal anti-Russian sanctions, the trying to influence the situation in Russia before the presidential election, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told TASS on Saturday, as he commented on a report, in which the U.S is drafting a list of persons to undergo the sanctions. But he said he would work with European allies to remove so-called "sunset clauses" that allow Iran to gradually resume advanced nuclear activities in the next decade. While Iran's regular military, the Iranian Army or the Artesh, exists to defend the nation's borders from outside enemies, the IRGC exists specifically to counter domestic affairs in order to protect the country's radical Islamic system.

U.S. President Donald Trump waived sanctions lifted under the Iran nuclear deal, Friday, but added additional sanctions on Tehran. U.S. and other officials have complained that Iran's ballistic-missile program can easily be converted for nuclear use.

Iran has said its nuclear program is strictly for peaceful uses.

"This is a last chance", Trump said, pushing for a separate agreement. As part of an agreement with Congress, the president has to sign a waiver suspending the sanctions every 120 days.

"Iran strongly announces that it will make no measure beyond its JCPOA commitments and will make no changes in the nuclear deal neither now nor in the future", the statement read.

The legislation is required to include certain "triggers" which will automatically lead to a reimposition of the sanctions if Iran fails to apply.

In a statement released by the US Mission to the United Nations on Friday, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley commented on Trump's decision to waive sanctions on Iran.

They were speaking following a meeting with Iran's foreign minister, Javad Zarif.

"Trump failed to pressure U.S. Congress into taking action against the Iran nuclear deal". Would you rather deal with those things with Iran having nuclear weapons or not having them?

Trump is again waiving sanctions on Iran that would jeopardize the nuclear pact between Tehran and world powers, according to senior administration officials.

The European Union said it had taken note of Mr Trump's decision and would assess its implications.

In a joint press conference in Brussels on Thursday, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany issued a plea to the United States to stay in the agreement. "Iran's regime claims to support democracy, but when its own people express their aspirations for better lives and an end to injustice, it once again shows its true brutal nature".
