Nuclear Deal is Not Renegotiable — Iran to Trump

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that he expects Trump to impose additional new sanctions on Iran, but declined to make any specific comments about the president's decision on the waiver.

Despite the Iran nuclear deal, the United States has sanctioned around 100 individuals and entities involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and other activities which the United States saw as "illicit".

Trump refused to recertify the deal in October and has threatened to withdraw the United States if what he calls serious flaws in the accord cannot be fixed by U.S. lawmakers and U.S. allies.

US Congress requires the president regularly recertify that Iran is in compliance with the agreement - a deal Trump has called the worst the US has ever entered into and which he promised to "rip up". Trump has repeatedly criticized the accord, while Iran has accused the U.S. of failing to comply with it. The next sanctions waivers are due in May.

The Germany foreign office tweeted that it, too, is taking time to coordinate with its European partners on how to respond, but remains committed to the Iran nuclear deal.

Zarif noted in a tweet the "strong consensus in Brussels" that Tehran is respecting its obligations and that "Iran's continued compliance [is] conditioned on full compliance by the U.S".

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 Defense Organization; Iran's Supreme Council of Cyberspace and National Cyberspace Center; Malaysia-based Green Wave Telecommunication and its Iranian director Morteza Razavi; and the Iran Helicopter Support and Renewal Company and Iran Aircraft Industries.

MCEVERS: OK. So how are the Europeans reacting to this? Iran must allow "immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors", he said, and "sunset" provisions imposing limits on Iran's nuclear program must not expire.

With no solution yet forthcoming from Congress Mr Trump on Friday reluctantly extended a waiver on the nuclear-related sanctions.

West believes that Iran could use that decision to restart its own nuclear program and that would encourage other countries in that region to do the same thing. These are separate to the nuclear deal.

Zarif has said Trump's aggressive stance on the deal and Iran generally have also violated the commitment to "refrain from any policy specifically intended to directly and adversely affect the normalisation of trade and economic relations with Iran" under paragraph 29. Although he tips off European associates that he would pull out of the contract unless its terrible flaws are right.
