Trump to certify Iran complying with nuclear deal

The US Must Counter the Iranian Regime and Work With the Resistance Trump Plans to Certify that Iran Is in Compliance With Nuclear Deal
June Sullivan | 15 July, 2017, 00:49

During his campaign, US President Donald Trump repeatedly criticized the Iran nuclear deal, calling it "the worst deal ever negotiated".

The administration has until Monday to decide whether it will recertify Iran's adherence to the agreement, which lifts financial sanctions against the country as long as it proves it won't develop or acquire nuclear weapons.

Answering to questions on any possible meeting with Western politicians, including the US Congressmen or the Secretary of State, he said, "No plan has been made to this end".

Under U.S. law, the State Department must notify Congress every 90 days of Iran's compliance with the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

A senior fellow at the Center for the Study of the Middle East of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Candidate of Historical Sciences Elena Dunayeva, speaking to Vestnik Kavkaza, noted that Anti-Iranian rhetoric, which is now being heated in the United States, does not threaten a nuclear deal with Iran in any way.

The High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) in 2017, one of the forums Zarif will attend, will be held based on the theme of "Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world".

The Iranian foreign minister has lashed out at the USA for its failure to completely observe its obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal by occasionally preventing the Islamic Republic from enjoying the full benefits of the agreement.

"The nuclear agreement is a multilateral and worldwide contract achieved after years of dialogue and negotiation", said Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, late on Thursday.

"In the meantime, Iran hawks have their eyes on Boeing's deals to supply leading Iranian airlines with new airplanes - deals valued at more than $22 billion", the outlet reported.

Zarif pointed to the ongoing campaign against terrorism and extremism across the Middle East, particularly in Iraq and Syria, and noted that the current crisis is mainly caused by the United States interventionist policies in the region.
