Trump administration to review Iran sanctions relief: State Dept

21 April 2017, 02:46 | Terri Saunders

Tillerson's letter on Wednesday was the first such notification since Trump took office. In the view of Chinese officials, the "military option is not an option" because it would throw Southeast Asia into complete chaos, and "we do not want war or chaos on the doorstep of China". "We could be wrong".

"Public statements lambasting the nuclear deal with Iran as a "failed approach" and comparing the country with North Korea are reckless and blatantly false".

Struck by the Obama administration in 2015, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action aims to keep Iran from developing a nuclear arsenal through economic incentives.

The White House spokesman further announced that the review would supposedly check if the anti-Iran sanctions ease, required under the JCPOA, is "vital to our national security interests".

With Iran getting most of its benefits upfront, even critics of the agreement have said the United States gains little by breaking the deal now.

During his presidential campaign, Trump called the agreement "the worst deal ever negotiated".

Tillerson said one of the mistakes in the way the agreement was put together was that it ignored all the other serious threats Iran posed outside of its nuclear program.

Like the diplomats, Kirby said the administration may be looking for political cover. Tillerson said that decision will be made as part of a review of Iran policy.

The agreement between Iran and six world powers, negotiated during Barack Obama's presidency, placed limitations on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting worldwide oil and financial sanctions against Iran.

The disagreement between Obama and Netanyahu over the deal had strained US-Israel ties and Obama-Netanyahu relationship. He had said in January 2016, after the deal was implemented, that "Iran will not get its hands on a nuclear bomb". Since the sanctions have been lifted, oil exports from Iran to India have surged.

But Majidyar argued that scrapping the deal wouldn't help Washington. "So we'll see what happens".

Those parties have been talking for some time to the United Nations watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency about clarifying various aspects of the deal that were ambiguous to ensure stricter implementation, the first diplomat said.

Asked if Trump was concerned that Iran might be cheating on the deal, Sean Spicer told reporters at a daily press briefing: "He's doing the prudent thing by asking for a review of the current deal". "If he didn't, if he thought everything was fine he would've allowed this to move forward". -Iranian tensions, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis, who was in Saudi Arabia on a tour of the Middle East, on Wednesday accused Iran of sending missiles to rebel Houthi fighters in Yemen.

"The evidence is clear - Iran's provocative actions threaten the United States, the region and the world", Tillerson said.

Vladimir Voronkov, Russia's permanent representative to the International Organizations in Vienna, told TASS on Tuesday that U.S. banks do not work effectively to unfreeze Iranian assets.
