New US sanctions attempt to influence Russia before election

New US sanctions attempt to influence Russia before election

In a statement that was released on Saturday, January 13, 2018, the minister of foreign relations in Iran said that the trump administration was conducting an act against their country that was illegal and at the same time hostile by including their chief of the judiciary in the list of sanctioned companies and individuals. To keep the U.S. in the nuclear agreement in the future, senior administration officials said Trump will pressure European partners to agree to impose new conditions on Iranian behavior.

The stance of Iran and worldwide support for the agreement has blocked attempts by Trump and Israel to terminate this deal or make changes to it, said the statement.

Iran agreed to restrict its nuclear programme for at least 10 years in exchange for the relaxation of sanctions which have hamstrung its economic development in recent years.

Iran argues that continued U.S. sanctions on non-nuclear areas such as human rights and missile testing have effectively barred Iran from gaining numerous financial benefits expected from the deal. He wants to require more robust inspections of nuclear facilities.

Tehran has responded to the latest U.S. sanctions over Iran's alleged human rights abuses and ballistic missile program. This follows previous practice, in which a reluctant president has kept the U.S.in the deal but sought other ways to get tough on Iran.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Moscow has a "very negative stance" on the decisions and comments made by Trump about Iran, according to state news agency Sputnik. JCPOA is not renegotiable: "rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, U.S. must bring itself into full compliance-just like Iran", he wrote.

Trump said he is open to working with Congress on bipartisan legislation regarding Iran.

But the president stressed this is the last time he would waive sanctions against Tehran. "Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw". However, it is worthy of note that all these areas that Iranians are complaining about are outside the scope of the nuclear deal.

Three months ago, Trump answered a congressional deadline by refusing to "certify" USA participation in the deal.

Iran has dismissed USA calls for the quit of missile program development, and it has stressed that its nuclear program is peaceful.

But to some in Washington, the meeting amounted to a show of unity between Europe and Iran - and of defiance toward the United States.

"We are cutting off the regime s money flows to terrorists".

The announcement came as the Treasury Department placed sanctions on 14 individuals and entities for alleged offenses unrelated to Iran s nuclear industry.
