Trump Warns This Might Be Final Iran Deal Waiver, President Trump renewed the Iran nuclear deal, but said that this will be the last time. The deal, which must be renewed every 120 days, waives key sanctions the US lifted as part of the deal.
NCRI - Late last week, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley raised the issue that the Iranian Regime was gifting ballistic missiles to Yemen’s Houthi militias but that’s far from the only present the Iranian Regime is handing out.
They are also sending large amounts of money to North Korea in exchange for missile technology or material, which is incredibly “problematic” according to Emily Landau, a senior research fellow at the Israeli-based Institute for National Security Studies and head of the Arms Control and Regional Security Programme.
It is widely agreed that Pyongyang has dramatically deepened its partnership with Tehran's 'Axis of Resistance.’ This according to the 16 agency US Intelligence Community as well as some Asian powers. All are said to believe that the DRNK-IROI partnership seeks the ability to launch nuclear weapons into their perceived enemies. Another recent report has it that North Korea has been benefiting from technical assistance from Russia and Pakistan and sharing some of it with Iran while committing about 25 percent of North Korea’s entire gross domestic product to its nuclear weapons program and much of that to missiles.
NCRI - Yukiya Amano, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director, is expected to meet with United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, on Thursday in New York. It is believed that the Trump administration's next move on Iran is at stake.
After the US President de-certified Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal last month, it passed to Congress to determine whether or not the U.S. actually withdraws from the agreement.
Trump has referred to the 2015 nuclear deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as "an embarrassment."
NCRI - Ever since the Nazis first deployed ballistic missiles in World War II, the world has been rightly concerned about the threat the weapons pose to world security.
Now, some 70 years later those missiles can travel long distances in a short time, leave the earth’s atmosphere and deliver nuclear or chemical payloads without being detected, which would cause untold destruction. This is why people remain concerned about these weapons being in the hand of rogue regimes, like Iran and North Korea, who orchestrate missile tests on a regular basis.
NCRI - Republican lawmakers are calling on the Trump administration to ensure that nuclear inspectors will be able to have unrestricted access to all potential nuclear sites in Iran at any time. This is one of the major failings of the 2015 nuclear agreement.
During the negotiations, former President Obama promised: “Inspectors will also be able to access any suspicious location. Put simply, the organization responsible for the inspections, the IAEA, will have access where necessary, when necessary.” However, this never happened and Iranian regime has refused to let nuclear inspectors into military sites.
NCRI - Republican Senators Bob Corker and Tom Cotton have drafted some legislation with regards to the Iran nuclear deal and Trump’s recent decertification of it. The legislation would impose tough terms on the nuclear deal and would ensure that sanctions are restored if Iran carries out any testing on a ballistic missile that has the capability of carrying a warhead. It would also ensure that sanctions are reimposed if the Islamic Republic refuses nuclear inspectors access to any sites in the country.
NCRI - A senior House Democrat has declared that new US sanctions on Iran would bring the Regime to its knees and bring them back to the negotiating table.
Brad Sherman, a Representative from California, was speaking at a counterterrorism event organised by the Hudson Institute on Monday, when he said that “maximum sanctions" on Iran could bring the Regime “begging” to the US.
NCRI - The former Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. and U.K. Prince Turki al-Faisal has admired the Donald Trump administration for its clear and tough strategy on Iran regime including his recent refusal to certify Iran as compliant with the nuclear deal.
