Macron to Trump: All Parties Must Honor Iran Nuclear Deal

Trump on Iran Deal

Trump on Iran Deal

"It's a campaign that we have carried on since October", referring to Trump's decision not to certify that Tehran is meeting the terms of a pact to stop it developing nuclear weapons.

Iran hawks in Congress and elsewhere worry the changes being discussed don't strengthen the nuclear deal enough.

Mnuchin offered no specifics, but President Trump has been reported, in the context of likely renewing waivers of nuclear deal-related sanctions, to impose some new sanctions unrelated to the deal.

Despite this unfortunate news, the Olympics are still promising an entertaining tournament both on the women's and men's level. In the absence of stars from the NHL , Team Canada will ice a hockey team long on heart at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Despite Trump's attempts to discredit the nuclear accord-officially titled the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)-as "the worst deal ever", inspectors and diplomats have repeatedly concluded that Iran has complied with the agreement and that it has been extremely effective.

The decision coincides with the administration's efforts to secure a face-saving fix from Congress on the requirement for Trump to address Iran's compliance every three months. This would presumably save President Trump from continuing to either defy his own views of the JCPOA or court worldwide condemnation by decertifying it, only to take little or no further action against it. He has advised four different USA presidents on the Middle East. The next deadline is on Friday.

If Trump refuses to extend the waivers, the United States risks being in violation of the worldwide accord, a diplomatic minefield. What made the sanctions effective is that it wasn't just the USA that it was doing it. "It is deeply uncharted territory".

Saved by a snore': 'Dead' man rescued in morgue as autopsy begins
Doctors said his brain was deprived of oxygen for a while, but he is able to speak and remember things, which are both good signs. He was taken to the Institute of Legal Medicine in Oviedo for an autopsy .

Trump and his top advisers have been negotiating with United States lawmakers on Capitol Hill to try to change sanctions legislation so that he does not face a deadline on whether to recertify Iranian compliance with the nuclear deal every 90 days.

"U.S. credibility in terms of our willingness to enter into worldwide agreements, or even our interest in so doing, has already been damaged, and this would be a major blow", said Holgate, now a senior fellow at Harvard's Belfer Center for Science and global Affairs.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that he expects Trump to impose additional new sanctions on Iran, but declined to make any specific comments about the president's decision on the waiver. If he does not sign the sanctions waiver this week, the USA will be violating its end of the nuclear agreement.

Severe winter weather causes blood shortage nationwide
In 2016, there were 67,692 Bonfils blood donors, which added up to 142,214 blood donations made in Colorado that year. These number can only get decreased when people will come forward to give their support for blood donation.

Trump allowed the deal to remain in place a year ago while Congress considered legislation to strengthen the 2015 agreement. No doubt this view is reinforced by the IAEA's determinations that Iran has been maintaining the agreed-upon restrictions, although many critics of the deal have responded to such claims by highlighting nuclear inspectors' lack of access to Iranian military sites. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said: "We should support the Iranian people who are willing to risk their lives". "The debates about the "people in Iran" aren't really about the people in Iran, but about how to use those people to achieve a desired American end-goal, without thinking through an actual policy for what that end-goal would look like and that end-goal's broader consequences for the United States". "This may spark a move away from the present long-established US Dollar denominated oil trading regime". Republican Sens. Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz want sanctions back if Iran launches any ballistic missiles capable of targeting territory outside of Iran, such as Israel or Saudi Arabia, and not just an intercontinental missile.
