Trump to approve Iran nuclear deal for last time

Iran's Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that Iran will never renegotiate the 2015 nuclear deal, formally known as JCPOA, despite the USA pressures.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has urged all signatories to the multilateral 2015 agreement on Iran's nuclear program to continue its implementation amid U.S. threats to withdraw from the deal, Press TV reported.

Critics of the deal in Congress have also proposed amending legislation to ensure that USA sanctions would "snap back" automatically if Iran carried out certain actions. The agreement was reached during Barack Obama's presidency.

The US Treasury Friday announced sanctions on 14 Iranian individuals and entities, including the head of Iran's judiciary, Sadeq Larijani, for human rights abuses and supporting Tehran's ballistic missile programme.

Meanwhile, the Iranians have dismissed USA pressure to renegotiate the deal.

"There's a great deal of criticism of the deal ever since it's been struck that the deal is a poor deal for the United States and that it wouldn't matter whether or not we were in it", he says. The argument for staying in was to allow time to toughen the terms of the agreements, the official said. Scuttling the nuclear deal would be a disaster, especially with the mass protests going on in Iran right now.

Two senior Trump administration officials told Reuters that the president, a Republican, had privately expressed reluctance to heed the advice of top advisers recommending he not reimpose the suspended sanctions.

Trump laid out several conditions to keep the United States in the deal.

Trump's latest move casts doubt on the future of the deal, a successful practice of solving a hotspot issue through political and diplomatic means.

Iran says its nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes.

"It's incumbent on those who oppose the (deal) really to come up with that better solution, because we haven't seen it so far", he said.

Russia, which is also a signatory to the JCPOA, said on Saturday the United States would be making a grave mistake by pulling out of Iran's nuclear deal and underlined Moscow's determination to keep the landmark accord intact.

In October, Trump said that he would not certify the deal, a dramatic but largely ceremonial gesture that he is expected to repeat this week.

As the tensions between Washington and Tehran continue to rise, a senior Iranian official said that his country will continue to develop ballistic missiles. The European countries which signed on, including the U.K., France, and Germany urged the USA to stay in on Thursday, claiming that Iran has been holding up its side of the bargain since the deal was signed.

On Friday, Trump is set to decide whether to extend relief for Iran from some United States economic sanctions.

On the eve of Trump's announcement, diplomats from Britain, France, Germany and the European Union again called on Trump to uphold the pact.
