U.S. extends Iran sanctions relief under nuclear deal -State Dept

U.S. extends Iran sanctions relief under nuclear deal -State Dept

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives at 10 Downing Street in London, Britain, September 14, 2017.

But supporters hailed Thursday's move, in which the US Treasury announced new sanctions on non-nuclear issues even as Trump's administration grudgingly maintained sanctions relief.

In a recent talk with ICANA, Ali Bakhtiar added that the nuclear deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, is regarded as global law as it has been endorsed by the United Nations Security Council.

They said that abandoning the deal "without clear evidence of an unresolved material breach by Iran ... runs the risk that Tehran would resume some of its nuclear activities".

The three former Obama administration officials also said the deal is nearly impossible to renegotiate unless the US could give Iran some new concessions or incentives, an idea Trump seems to oppose.

The administration also faces an October 15 deadline to certify whether Iran remains in compliance with the nuclear deal.

He also said that upholding the Iran nuclear agreement was important as the global community seeks to grapple with the North Korean nuclear threat.

As a result of Iran verifiably meeting its nuclear commitments, the United States and the European Union have lifted nuclear-related sanctions on Iran, as described in the JCPOA. White House and Pentagon officials are deeply concerned about the potential risks of Iranian retaliation against thousands of US troops deployed in Iraq and Syria who are in close proximity to Tehran-backed militia.

The inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) would by no means have access to Iran's classified information, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Wednesday.

"I think the Iranians, many of us have talked with them in different venues since the agreement, and they certainly follow what happens here quite closely".

France's President Emmanuel Macron said last month that the Iran agreement could be "supplemented" to address what happens after 2025 and deal with Iran's ballistic missile program.

So, why continue with a deal that Iran is so happy to break?

The abrogation of the nuclear deal would lend a tremendous blow to the global credibility of major powers that signed the deal with Iran.

The current crisis with North Korea has been discussed often in this context - that tearing up the Iran deal would harm USA credibility with North Korea as it tries to negotiate for Pyongyang to denuclearize.

"This is not something we're going to get for nothing", said Barbara Slavin, director of the Future of Iran Initiative at the Atlantic Council in Washington.

New sanctions won't work either, the three said. But reinstating sanctions would violate the U.S.'s terms - and effectively tear up the agreement.

"Under the law, Congress then has 60 days to consider whether to reimpose sanctions on Iran", Haley told the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. He has indicated he will not do so, which would trigger an expedited process in Congress to reinstate nuclear sanctions in violation of the JCPOA.
