Trump's Decision on Iran Deal Does Not Mean US Withdrawing


Under U.S. law, President Donald Trump must certify every three months whether Iran is in compliance with the agreement's ban on developing nuclear weapons and related restrictions.

That law, written by Democratic Sen. Indeed, the whole problem here was that after the USA bought the first batch of heavy water, Congress was furious about it, and no one's bought any since, leaving Iran stuck with it.

"If the president finds that he can not certify Iranian compliance, it would signal one or more of the following messages to Congress: Either the administration believes Iran is in violation of the deal, or the lifting of sanctions against Iran is not appropriate and proportional to the regime's behaviour, or the lifting of sanctions is not in the U.S. national security interest", Haley said.

"Judging any global agreement ends and begins with the nature of regime that signs it", Haley said. One would be to accept Iran as a de facto nuclear weapons state with the likelihood this would trigger a nuclear scramble among other regional powers including Saudi Arabia.

Haley also suggested that Iran could be deemed as non-compliant based on its ballistic missile development which is excluded from the deal but is still illegal under other United Nations resolutions.

"Congress could debate whether the nuclear deal is in fact too big to fail", Haley asserted. But critics of the deal - including the Israeli government - worry that in failing to address those activities, it provides cover for Tehran to expand its military operations across the region. Haley lied when she said that the JCPOA "gave Iran what it wanted up-front, in exchange for temporary promises to deliver what we want".




Haley's argument, made Monday in a speech to the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, was that the agreement was inextricably bound to other manifestations of Iran's bad behavior, including its development of missiles, military adventurism and backing for terrorism. If the administration were to jettison the deal now, few of its former partners would likely reimpose sanctions, leaving Iran potentially far better off than it was before the deal.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley says she doesn't know what decision Trump will make on the Iran deal.

"For advocates of the deal, everything in our relationship with the Iranian regime must now be subordinated to the preservation of the agreement", she observed. "This is not an easy situation for Congress", Haley said. She argued both United Nations resolutions and US law should be considered as well. While it allows Iran the right to enrich uranium, it keeps the weaponisation of its nuclear capability on hold for a decade in return for a lifting of worldwide economic sanctions. As to who is advising her on Iran, "This seems to stem from her inner circle", said one official, speaking not for attribution.

On the same day, Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif cautioned in a letter to IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano that Haley's visit was meant to sow doubt about the nuclear agreement. That penalty is the reimposition of sanctions.

She pointed out that the Corker-Cardin law requires certification of two things - that Iran has not materially breached the JCPOA: and that "the suspension of sanctions against Iran is appropriate and proportionate to Iran's nuclear measures, and that it is vital to the national security interests of the United States". "Think about that. There is an absurdly circular logic to enforcement of this deal".
