USA top envoy accuses Iran of 'alarming provocations'

On Iran, Trump and his top officials have been walking a narrow line as they seek to show an aggressive stance.

Trump's barbs come a day after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced that the USA has started a review of the worldwide nuclear agreement with Iran.

The European Union's foreign policy chief, Frederica Mogherini, said last month after meetings with senior Trump administration officials she was reassured in the talks that the USA was committed to fully implementing the deal.

He went on to say that the deal also does not address Iran's violation of human rights or their destabilizing influence throughout the region, so he said Tillerson should tell allies that he will target that "bad behavior".

Barack Obama argued the deal, between Iran and six world powers including China, Russia and the United Kingdom, was the best way to prevent Iran getting a nuclear weapon.

Protesters were fewer in number in Ankara , where they were outnumbered by police officers. He said the party would use all legal paths to challenge the vote.

Meanwhile back in Washington, Congress is debating new sanctions on Iran related to its ballistic missile program. But the United States has repeatedly clashed with Iran over its ballistic-missile tests, with US officials saying that they violate the spirit, if not the letter, of the deal.

"Worn-out USA accusations can't mask its admission of Iran's compliance" with the deal, Zarif wrote on Twitter. Trump's administration is demanding that Congress fund a bigger USA border wall with Mexico and is suggesting that his administration could scrap the US nuclear deal with Iran. But the USA must decide next month whether to renew a waiver so that Iran can continue receiving sanctions relief.

He accused Iran of supporting terrorism and destabilising the Middle East as the Trump administration launched a review of the Iran nuclear deal. Under the groundbreaking agreement brokered by the Obama administration and allies, the USA and other European and western countries lifted sanctions against Iran in exchange for the Shia state opening up its nuclear sites to inspectors and dismantling centrifuges which the Obama administration claimed will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. "Iran's provocative actions threaten the United States, the region, and the world", Tillerson said. Mattis added, "But the agreement on nuclear issues still stands and that's all I can say about it".

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday that the White House would be reaching out to the Vatican to "see if a meeting, an audience with the Pope can be accommodated". Trump supported Britain's decision to leave the European Union and has previously said he expected other countries to do the same. He did not specifically weigh in on the French election.

"#IranDeal obliges USA to support successful implementation, incl in public statements, and to refrain from adversely affecting normal trade", Zarif said on his twitter account on Thursday night.

Latest Upcoming Smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6
Although its predecessor, the Galaxy S7 was an incredible device, the Galaxy S8 comes out on top when both of these are compared. Samsung said Thursday that preorders for its new S8 phone had surpassed the preorders for its prior model, the S7.

And, with a funding deadline looming to keep the government running, Trump said it was possible Congress would manage to accomplish it all next week or "shortly thereafter".

"I hope the answer is a positive one, not a negative one, but hopefully that will be something that gets taken care of". "Iran's nuclear ambitions are a grave risk to global peace and security", he added.

It's not the first time Trump expressed his belief that Iran isn't complying with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), signed on July 14, 2015, by P5+1 members- China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, plus Germany.

Trump spoke at a White House news conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
