Iran FM demands European Union 'uphold obligations' in nuclear deal

Iran on Wednesday said it would suspend some commitments under a 2015 nuclear accord rejected by Trump, frustrated that renewed United States sanctions have prevented the country from enjoying the economic fruits of compliance with the deal.

"Cheating just a little bit is still cheating". In this respect, we recall the key role of IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) monitoring and verification of the implementation by Iran of its nuclear-related commitments.

"Instead of demanding that Iran unilaterally abide by a multilateral accord, European Union should uphold obligations - including normalisation of economic ties". Low enriched uranium may be repurposed to make nuclear weapons.

"If the demands aren't met, after 60 days Iran won't comply with its commitment regarding the uranium enrichment at the rate of 3.67 percent, and will reconsider its obligations under the Arak Nuclear Reactor", he said.

Malloy said Iran is suspected of fielding new missile technology that "falls under the category of destabilizing and offensive in nature", which would be a fair description of anti-ship missiles meant to shut down the vast amount of oil shipping that passes through the Strait of Hormuz.

As the sanctions bite, domestic pressure is increasing on Rouhani to demonstrate that Iran can still benefit from an agreement based on providing it with economic opportunities in exchange for limiting nuclear development.

But it said that Iran must at the same time "implement its commitments under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) in full as it has done until now and to refrain from any escalatory steps".

"We have information that you don't want to know about", Trump said, according to Reuters. "But Iran's forty years of killing American soldiers, attacking American facilities, and taking American hostages is a constant reminder that we must defend ourselves", Pompeo said in a statement released Thursday. The Trump administration thinks so. "We are making it unsustainable for Iran to support terrorist proxies and militias that for decades have defied the basic standards of behavior observed by normal countries". According to sources close to the matter, Intelligence was warned Tehran approved proxy forces to attack US personnel and assets in the region.

What happens next? Someone blinks. Analysts say more sanctions could be detrimental for Iran's economy, which is already doing poorly.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has engaged in an escalating series of threatening actions and statements in recent weeks".

Trump, reportedly wary of Bolton's overseas interventionism, might want to replicate his direct overtures to North Korea by talking directly with Iran. On Sunday, the White House said it dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and B-52 bombers to the Persian Gulf over what it described as a new threat from Iran.
