JCPOA proves Iran never sought nuclear weapons

Posted September 07, 2017

She was referring to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, which Congress passed after the Obama Administration and the other P5+1 countries agreed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran.

Moreover, the JCPOA continues to give Iran far more than it does the United States and its allies, since it granted - for the first time - an Iranian right to enrich uranium, and legitimized a regime that had correctly been an global pariah.

"We must consider its history of deception about its nuclear program", she continued. Meanwhile, in June, the Senate passed tough new sanctions against both Russian Federation and Iran, highlighting Iran's determination to develop its ballistic missile program.

"They alternatively thought that the nuclear deal would be taken as an example to reach more agreements with Iran on other issues...."

Washington rejects the proposal; Putin insisted it "offers a genuine way to defuse the tensions and a step-by-step settlement". The THAAD systems will be deployed on Thursday at a new base in Seongju, 300 kilometers (186 miles) from Seoul.

The 2015 Iran nuclear deal is one of the contributing factors to the gravity of the situation with regards to Iran.

Iran's verified compliance with the deal's provisions resulted in the U.N. Security Council lifting an array of worldwide financial sanctions last year that had been in place for years, and the release of billions of dollars of Iranian funds that had been frozen by Western banks and governments. In July, shortly after Trump last certified Iranian compliance, the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced it was designating 16 entities and individuals for activities supporting Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). "The result is that for advocates of the deal, everything in our relationship with the Iranian regime must now be subordinated to the preservation of the agreement".

"If the president chooses not to certify Iranian compliance, that does not mean the United States is withdrawing from the JCPOA", Haley told an audience at the Washington-based American Enterprise Institute Tuesday.

The IAEA most recently verified Iranian adherence to its commitments on Thursday, shortly after US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley traveled to Vienna to press the agency to request access to Iran's military sites.

In August, he became the youngest man to reach a Masters semifinal at the Rogers Cup in Montreal. Meanwhile, 12th-seeded Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta also reached the fourth round at the U.S.

The nuclear deal set limits on Iran's nuclear activities and allowed regular inspections of the facilities inside Iran.

Even Republican experts sympathetic to Haley's arguments about the deal's flaws acknowledged she did not offer any vision or plan for what the Trump administration would do instead if it decides to walk away from the deal.

"Unfortunately as happens all too often at the United Nations, many member states ignore blatant violations of the UN's own resolution", she said. And she noted that Iran has in the past hidden its most sensitive nuclear activities in military sites that are now hard to reach for United Nations inspectors. As to who is advising her on Iran, "This seems to stem from her inner circle", said one official, speaking not for attribution. That penalty is the reimposition of sanctions. "Think about that. There is an absurdly circular logic to enforcement of this deal".

During this meeting, the Japanese side expressed his interest in extending mutual familiarity between the lawyers and juries of the two countries and also on developing bilateral relations in the area of law and judicial system.

Congress conducted a bruising debate in August 2015 over whether or not to vote against the agreement - a vote that drew Israel's government into American politics and challenged many senior Democrats to buck the leader of their own party. But this certification process is where Haley sees an opening.
