  • Moscow considers Trump's Iran nuclear deal comments as 'extremely negative'

Iran's foreign minister said on Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump's latest decision on a nuclear deal between Iran and major powers undermined the solid multilateral agreement.

Calling it " the last chance", Trump said in a White House statement that his country "will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal".

"JCPOA is not renegotiable; rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, the United States must bring itself to full compliance, just like Iran", he said.

Iran, too, has been abundantly clear that it will not renegotiate the deal.

Trump's action, which was widely expected, is the third time he has given a reprieve to the agreement brokered by former president Barack Obama, despite having labeled it "the worst deal ever" and threatening repeatedly to rip it up. They note that since the deal was signed, Iran has continued to hold some Americans and other Westerners in jail.

"Today, we learned that the president's plan includes bullying our allies into fundamentally altering the terms of a deal that they know is working for our mutual security and have publicly stated they have no interest in amending", it said.

Also on Friday, the U.S. imposed separate sanctions against 14 Iranian individuals and entities it accuses of rights abuses, censorship and support for weapons proliferators.

Seal Accuses Oprah of Knowing About Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Misconduct
The President will have surprised few observers with his predicted outcome of any future White House race against Ms Winfrey. Trump , a businessman and former reality TV star, based part of his appeal on the fact he was truly not a Washington insider.


The Iranian foreign ministry has said it would not accept "any changes, now or in the future". Last year, Trump "decertified" the deal, giving lawmakers a 60-day window to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

He urged Iran to remain calm and continue to fulfil its obligations under the deal.

Trump has sharply criticized the agreement and vowed to rip it up, but his national security advisors have urged him to wait while they work with Congress and US allies in an effort to strengthen its provisions. This follows previous practice, in which a reluctant president has kept the U.S.in the deal but sought other ways to get tough on Iran. It is hard to imagine how Tehran would take European demands for changing the deal seriously when those players know the demands come under duress.

Tehran on January 13 rejected the notion of any modification of the 2015 nuclear accord, which requires Iran to curb its nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief. Most of those sanctions including the ones imposed on Iran's judiciary chief came as a effect of the crackdown by the government of its citizens who were protesting peacefully last week.

The sanctions with the most political repercussions are against the administrative head of Iran's judiciary, Sadegh Amoli Larijani.

The U.S. decision in imposing new sanctions on the Iranian individuals and entities proves the U.S. government's animosity towards the great Iranian nation.
