"No one should doubt my word".
In the statement, Trump listed his conditions for legislation that would address future us participation and called on European allies "to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression, and supporting the Iranian people". Corker has said since he began Iran talks with Cardin that he wants a bipartisan solution, and Democrats have made clear that they won't endorse any new bill that would alienate European allies or otherwise derail the nuclear deal.
They all fell in line with Obama's monstrous deal, believing, despite decades of evidence to the contrary, that people like Iranian officials Hassan Rouhani and Javad Zarif were actually "moderates".
Trump said USA law must tie long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs together, making any missile testing by Iran subject to "severe sanctions". The nuclear accord doesn't directly bar missile testing. It has said it will abide by the agreement as long as other signatories do, but warned that it would "shred" the deal should Washington pull out.
Iran has said it's not interested in any renegotiation and would nearly certainly view a side agreement between the US and Europe as a violation of the deal. JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, United States must bring itself into full compliance -just like Iran.
Trump has constantly criticized the pact inked between the six world powers, namely China, Russia, Britain, France, the United States and Germany, and Iran in 2015, in which the West promised to relieve sanctions on Tehran in exchange for a halt in Iran's efforts to develop a nuclear weapon. But his explicit warning to Europe that the deal must be fixed by the time the next sanctions waivers are due in the spring creates a high-stakes diplomatic deadline that will be hard to meet.
Iran will definitely respond to the USA act by putting the name of Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on list of sanctions. You're not going to get Democratic votes for rewriting the deal.
"The Trump regime's hostile action (against Larijani). crossed all red lines of conduct in the global community and is a violation of worldwide law and will surely be answered by a serious reaction of the Islamic Republic", Iran's foreign ministry said in a statement carried by state media.
He, however, agreed to waive major economic sanctions that had been lifted by President Obama as part of the nuclear pact.
He continued: "Third, unlike the nuclear deal, these provisions must have no expiration date".
The United States has sanctioned around 100 individuals and entities involved with Iran's ballistic missile program and other activities which the United States saw as "illicit", according to Trump's statement on Friday.
Still, Trump left some room to maneuver in his statement. They note that since the deal was signed, Iran has continued to hold some Americans and other Westerners in jail.
"We have noted the White House statement", said a spokesman for the British embassy in Washington.
Diplomacy Works, a pressure group set up by former secretary of state John Kerry to defend the deal, was scathing.
Lawmakers in Washington have divisions about how to proceed.
The top Iranian diplomat said the world has over the past centuries been characterized by a paradigm based on power and zero-sum games, "which has had no result for the people of the world but loss, violence, conflict, and killings". "But the way to do so is to engage with global partners and build momentum to negotiate new provisions".
