UN Chief Warns Trump Not To Ditch Iran Nuclear Deal
May 04 2018 by Lorena Waters
"You may well know that Iran's leaders repeatedly deny ever pursuing nuclear weapons", said Mr. Netanyahu.
But scrapping the nuclear agreement would only make Iran that much more risky. "Iran is the one that's changing the rules in the region".
China and Russian Federation also signed the deal.
First of all, the Central Intelligence Agency and the White House knew already at the beginning of 2018 about the massive Mossad operation in Iran and the seizure of roughly 11,000 documents detailing Iran's secret nuclear weapons program.
In the past two weeks Iran has increased military cargo flights to Syria, stocked with additional weapons and supplies like small arms, ammunition and surface-to-air missiles that two US officials believe are meant both to shore up Iranian ground forces and to strike at Israel.
Netanyahu did not present evidence on Monday that Iran had actively worked to obtain an atomic weapon since the 2015 agreement and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) considers the country to be complying.
Hua said it is urgent that "all relevant parties should bear in mind the large picture and long-term interest, and faithfully implement and uphold the agreement". Iran has to come clean.
Iran's conventional military power, as well as potential nuclear strength, is under the spotlight this week, as alarm grows over its power on Israel's doorstep. This is the report.
"Trump is jumping on a rehash of old allegations already dealt with by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to "nix" the deal", he added. But the files again show this is a lie.
"The Europeans are not keen to be dragged into a regional conflict by the United States", said one source familiar with the talks.
Under U.S. law, the president is required to certify Iran's compliance with the deal every 90 days and issue waivers on certain sanctions every 120 days.
European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Netanyahu did not question Iran's compliance with the deal.
Several sources familiar with the negotiations said that if Trump pulls out, a question for the Europeans will be whether this would be the start of a much harder US line toward Iran, including military confrontation.
"During the 19 days following the first shipment, the USA sent two more planeloads of cash, totaling $1.3 billion, to Tehran, reports The Wall Street Journal". "All activities linked to the development of a nuclear weapon are permanently banned by the agreement".
"Because (an) important party of the treaty has abrogated and violated in clear terms the treaty".
"He's not close to getting two-thirds of the Senate". The deal accepted by Obama in 2015 was realistic; Trump's preferred substitute is pure fantasy.
"BENJAMIN Netanyahu is waiting with baited breath to find out whether his intelligence coup from Iran, revealed in a dramatic speech on Monday, is enough to derail the" terrible" nuclear deal. This entitled Iran to worldwide assistance. "John Bolton did it in a New York Times op-ed, saying that to get rid of Iran's bombs you have to bomb Iran", Benjamin said. On what? Among other things, on how to protect against "sabotage".
Israel and Iran are now involved in a standoff in Syria, where Iranian troops are supporting President Bashar Assad's forces.
Tehran will not renegotiate a landmark 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on May 3.
"These are warmed-over noodles that serve the prime minister's domestic image, making him out to be a resolute and consistent warrior for Israel's security", wrote Israeli military commentator Alex Fishman.
The proof of Iran's bad faith should be a warning to the White House as it heads into negotiations with North Korea.
