Iran rules out any change to nuclear agreement

The United States has failed to undermine the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a statement broadcast on state television.

"Today, I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, on his official Twitter account, Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Trump's decision undermined the multilateral agreement.

Iran says the nuclear deal is not renegotiable and it will stick to the accord as long as the other signatories respect it but will "shred" the deal if Washington pulls out.

But the real aim of United States opponents of the nuclear deal signed by President Obama and others in 2015 is to make sure that Iran gets no "peace dividend" out of the agreement and is provoked into walking away from it.

He also noted that he wanted a bill requiring the "timely, sufficient, and immediate inspections" of all Iranian nuclear sites by IAEA officials and the indefinite extension of limits on Iran's uranium enrichment and other nuclear activities, according to the Iranian news agency Press TV.

Queen Elizabeth II Drops Bra-Fitter After Revealing Details About Fitting, Grandsons
Rigby & Peller received the Royal Warrant in 1960. 'This is hard for me to say, but I don't want her to go with this, ' she said. That's thought to be the reason why the Queen has sacked her bra-fitter of 57-years after the owner wrote a tell-all book.

Nor is it likely to: having denounced the deal so often since the presidential election campaign as "the worst in history" Trump is boxed in by his own rhetoric - not that he has ever shown the slightest discomfort at this.

He is seeking radical changes to the deal, which he claims has "terrible flaw" - and has threatened to scrap it in four months' time unless he gets his way. All these ill-considered actions and inactions by Trump and his coterie pale in significance compared to the prospect of stoking a military confrontation with Iran.

A series of demonstrations over the economy, which also turned against Iran's Islamic establishment, broke out in almost 80 cities nationwide the first week of the year, spreading very quickly, with several turning violent.

But while Europeans also are concerned about Iran's behavior in non-nuclear issues, they have called the nuclear agreement successful and essential to their security. Iranian-born commentator Meir Javadanan told WIN, "Trumps' threats can not work".

"I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw", Trump said.
