Trump grudgingly admits Obama's Iran nuclear deal is working

United Nations Secretary General António Guterres

He said Iran was not designing missiles to carry nuclear warheads, which is banned under the nuclear deal, and that the country's missiles were only for self defense.

"He was close to doing it", Brody told CBN's Gary Lane. "The White House should clearly understand that any action against the Islamic Republic will be vehemently repulsed by the people and parliament", Speaker of the Parliament Ali Larijani commented on the results of the voting.

On Monday, even as they said Iran was complying with the deal, senior administration officials took steps to bash the agreement, pointing out, for instance, that its provisions are not permanent.

The U.S. has to decide whether to recertify the deal every 90 days.

The officials also said the USA would slap Tehran with new sanctions penalizing it for developing ballistic missiles and other activity.

Under the terms of the two-year-old agreement, Tehran scaled back production of nuke-making material in return for massive sanctions relief.

The officials noted that the Trump administration would seek to address Iran's aggressive behaviour in the Gulf region but could not go into detail.

The statement targeted 18 entities and individuals "supporting Iran's ballistic missile program and for supporting Iran's military procurement or Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), as well as an Iran-based transnational criminal organization and associated persons".

Who will care for Charlie if he does have treatment? "This is about Charlie and giving him the chance he needs". They raised the funds required to do so through an online crowdfunding campaign.

At the same time, the United States treasury department said it was targeting 16 entities and individuals for supporting what is said was "illicit Iranian actors or transnational criminal activity".

However, U.S. President Donald Trump was reportedly not fully on board with certifying Iran's compliance.

It said the activities "undercut whatever "positive contributions" to regional and worldwide peace and security were meant to emerge" from the nuclear agreement. Under the deal, multilateral United Nations sanctions against Iran have been largely removed, and it can purchase arms on the worldwide market more easily, as was evidenced when it purchased Russia's sophisticated S-300 air defense system previous year, according to website the National Interest.

At the White House news briefing earlier Monday, spokesman Sean Spicer said, "The president, from throughout the campaign until now, has made very clear that he thinks it's a bad deal".

They also expect to see more sanctions over the Regime's ballistic missile program and regional destabilisation. Two weeks later, Trump added that the worldwide agreement "will go down as one of the dumbest [and] most unsafe misjudgments ever entered into in [the] history of our country". Because the administration will have to certify that the deal is in the national security interests of the USA every 90 days, those saboteurs will have numerous opportunities to lobby Trump to change his mind.

"There are no communications between myself and Secretary Tillerson", he said. "The possibilities for engagement.have always been open".

"We certainly hope that if we don't agree with each other about the situation in Yemen or about the situation in Syria we can still work with each other in order to bring those situations to an end", said Zarif, who was in NY for a high-level United Nations meeting on sustainable development.

Xiyue Wang, a 37-year-old Chinese-American researcher at Princeton University, was recently sentenced to 10 years in Iranian prison.
