Pres. Trump hands nuke deal 'last chance,' waives Iran sanctions

Europe deepens relations with Iran despite Trump's threats Pres. Trump hands nuke deal 'last chance,' waives Iran sanctions

"Today, I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the bad flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", Mr. Trump continued.

Trump signed a waiver keeping the US sanctions that would scuttle the deal suspended for another 120 days. USA officials and others familiar with the administration's deliberations told the Associated Press that Mr. Trump is likely to back the accord for now but that he may pair his decision with new, targeted sanctions on Iranian businesses and people.

In his statement Friday, Trump said he remained open to revising the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, or INARA. Congress didn't touch the issue.

It has the backing of all the partners to the agreement apart from the United States, with Russian Federation warning Washington that withdrawing would be "a big miscalculation".

Mr Trump's declaration puts great pressure on Britain, France and Germany, the European signatories to the nuclear pact with Iran.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Friday it was a "desperate attempt" to undermine a "solid" deal. "We are targeting the Iranian regime, including the head of Iran's judiciary, for its appalling mistreatment of its citizens, including those imprisoned exclusively for exercising their right to freedom of peaceful assembly, and for censoring its own people as they stand up in protest against their government".

US President Donald Trump speaks before signing a proclamation to honour Martin Luther King Jr. day in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, US, January 12, 2018.

Iran argues that continued United States sanctions on other, non-nuclear, areas such as human rights and missile testing have effectively barred Iran from gaining numerous financial benefits expected from the deal.

President Trump is issuing a final waiver on Iran sanctions, the administration announced Friday.

Those hit by the sanctions include: Iranian judiciary chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani; the Rajaee Shahr Prison and its director, Gholamreza Ziaei; the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Electronic Warfare and Cyber Defence Organisation; Iran's Supreme Council of Cyberspace and National Cyberspace Centre; Malaysia-based Green Wave Telecommunication and its Iranian director Morteza Razavi; and the Iran Helicopter Support and Renewal Company and Iran Aircraft Industries.

The president is also directing more than a dozen new designations against Iranian entities, senior administration officials said.

"If at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately", he said.

As part of the deal some of the crippling economic sanctions against Iran were lifted in exchange for restrictions on uranium enrichment, reactor construction and other aspects of its nuclear program over a period of 15 to 25 years.

"So Trump now has issued explicit May deadline to Congress and Europeans: Fix Iran nuke deal or no more sanctions waivers", wrote Mark Dubowitz, head of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

"No-one should doubt my word".

The decision had been expected since earlier this week.

The solidity of Iran and worldwide support for the agreement have blocked attempts by Trump and Israel to terminate this agreement or make changes to it, said the statement.

This would not entail negotiations with Iran but would be the result of talks with European allies, the official said.
