Iran's Zarif Hopes Yemen War Does Not Lead to Iran, Saudi Conflict

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Monday that if the U.S. violates the landmark nuclear agreement then "Iran has another options including withdrawing from the deal".

Zarif said he has not as yet spoken with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is reviewing USA policy toward Iran, but he is open to doing so.

He pointed that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was the only international organization responsible for monitoring Iranian compliance with the deal and it confirmed many times fulfilling the agreement by Tehran.

Even as administration officials criticize Iran for its bellicosity and repeated violations of the nuclear agreement, recertifying that agreement requires the Trump administration to declare that the "suspension of sanctions related to Iran pursuant to the agreement is ... vital to the national security interests of the United States".

The administration also is asserting that Iran's development of ballistic missiles, support of terrorism and militancy, hostility toward Israel, complicity in atrocities by the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, cyberattacks on the US, and other actions "severely undermine the intent" of the nuclear accord.

Asked repeatedly about US citizens detained in Iran, the foreign minister offered to do "all it takes from my side" to ensure they have access to legal help and are treated humanely.

Worldwide monitors, and other signatories of the agreement, have said that Iran is meeting its terms, giving the administration little room for maneuver in providing the assessment required by Congress every 90 days.

Asked if President Trump, who said on the campaign trail that he'd "rip up" the "worst deal ever," felt pressure from allies to stay in deal, one official responded that the president "certainly made clear all along his desire to fix great flaws in the deal", but the policy is "still under review".

Meanwhile, it's steadily emerged that more and more people were at that Russian Rendezvous , including a former Soviet counterintelligence officer-turned-Russian lobbyist.

While no details of any additional sanctions have been given, officials said on Monday they expected more sanctions would eventually be laid out.

Under an arrangement Obama worked out with Congress during JCPOA negotiations, the executive must certify Iranian compliance with the terms of the deal every 90 days.

However, the official said the Trump administration saw Iran as "one of the most risky threats to United States interests and to regional stability".

Trump has recently called Iran a "rogue" state, which has aroused fierce response from the Iranian government. He endorsed the idea of declassifying the first semi-annual report of Iranian noncompliance assembled by the Trump administration, so the entire world would be able to see America's evidence that Iran is violating the deal.
