U.S. Accuses Iran Of 'Possible Undeclared Nuclear Activities'

U.S. Accuses Iran Of 'Possible Undeclared Nuclear Activities'

Stephanopoulos insisted that exiting the nuclear deal has pushed Iran even further towards developing nuclear weapons, but Pompeo pointed out that the Lebanese Hezbollah group is struggling, as are Iran's Shia militias in Iraq.

Tensions have been escalating between Iran and the United States since May previous year, when Trump pulled out of the 2015 nuclear accord with Tehran and began reimposing sanctions that have crippled the Iranian economy.

This weekend, United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke about the Iranian regime in two separate interviews.

The nuclear accord was signed between Iran and six world states - namely the US, Germany, France, Britain, Russia and China - in 2015.

"It's not Iran that needs to be brought back into the fold. everybody needs to re-commit, both sides have legitimate issues", Khouri notes, "the critical thing is to make sure that anything that is discussed is sanctioned by worldwide law, they can't have a negotiation that is defined by what Donald Trump or Mike Pompeo wants, that wouldn't go anywhere because Iranians would refuse it".

Rouhani also said that Iran would give Europeans two months to fulfil their commitments to shield the Iranian economy from the US sanctions.

Netanyahu said Israel found out about the site during a daring, previously announced raid into Tehran and that the regime demolished the site sometime between late June and late July after realizing that the Jewish state was aware. That's the outcome we're looking for.

Under the JCPOA Iran is only meant to enrich uranium using the less advanced IR-1 centrifuge model.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, standing alongside Mnuchin in the White House briefing room, said "sure" when asked whether Trump could meet Rouhani later this month on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY.

Macron proposed a summit between Trump and the Iranian leadership, a prospect that sparked interest from the mogul-turned-president but which is adamantly opposed by Netanyahu, who is facing elections next week and sees Iran as an existential threat. "Evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran continue".

Iran wants to take small but symbolic steps to show its disappointment that it has not reaped benefits from the nuclear accord, under which it was promised sanctions relief in return for compliance.
