Trump signalled dislike, but not demise of Iran deal - envoy

20 Сентября 2017

Calling Trump's United Nations speech "ignorant, absurd and hateful", Iran's leader slams potential USA withdrawal from nuclear deal.

Israel sees Iran as its most risky adversary, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Tuesday for scrapping or changing the 2015 nuclear deal.

Bolton, widely viewed as a foreign policy hawk, said the Iranian deal was too similar to failed deals with North Korea, and the evidence of past nuclear cooperation between Pyongyang and Tehran did not bode well.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Springmann maintained that Israel has far too much influence in the United States, adding that the principle problem with the American foreign policy is that the Department of State has no concept of what U.S. interests are.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce said Tuesday the United States should focus on enforcing the nuclear agreement with Iran instead of renegotiating it.

Delivering a speech at the 72 UN General Assembly session in NY on Wednesday, President Rouhani said the "ignorant, ugly, spiteful literature of the U.S. president, which was full of false information and groundless allegations, against the Iranian nation" were beneath the dignity of the United Nations.

Two of the most prominent targets of Donald Trump's maiden United Nations speech, Iran and Venezuela, have responded to the U.S. president's condemnations with some of their own, arguing that Washington continues to be a destabilizing influence.

"Nixing the deal means restoring massive pressure on Iran, including crippling sanctions, until Iran fully dismantles its nuclear weapons' capability", Netanyahu said. He insisted that "we can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building risky missiles, and we can not abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program".

"The British government has made it absolutely clear that it sees the JCPOA as important, it thinks the JCPOA should continue", Norman Lamont, a former chancellor of the exchequer who is also chairman of the British Iranian Chamber of Commerce, said at a press conference on Tuesday.

President Trump told reporters Wednesday at the United Nations General Assembly in NY that he has "decided" on what he will do about the Iran nuclear deal, although he isn't saying yet what that decision is.

Trump hinted in his speech to the annual gathering of world leaders that he may not recertify the agreement, negotiated by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Russian Federation is also concerned by Trump questioning the deal, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters in comments published by his ministry on Wednesday. If it collapses, there will be no renegotiation.

It's also unclear just what kind of negotiation he thinks he's pursuing with North Korea. In fact, he's making it much less likely.

He went on to say that the United States and Israel have "permanent interests", and both support "terrorism, authoritarianism and apartheid".

With obstacles this great, Trump should be providing leadership in pursuing an effective global strategy to deter North Korea, reassure United States allies, add sanctions pressure, and engage in real diplomacy. "This deal is not built on trust".

We'll find out over the next three years. "Who knows. Stranger things have happened".
