US Expert: Trump Destroying American Credibility in IAEA

But she said if he did decide against certifying Iran's compliance, he'd be on solid ground, but added, "What happens next is significantly in Congress' hands". It asks the President to certify that the suspension of sanctions against Iran is appropriate and proportionate to Iran's nuclear measures, and that it is vital to the national security interests of the United States.

Instead of ratcheting up the pressure on Tehran on our terms and our timetable, Americans paid to give Iran time to hone missile delivery systems (Obama omitted from the deal) and get itself to the brink of acquiring a nuclear weapon before the JCPOA's terrifying hourglass runs out. "We must consider the regime's repeated, demonstrated hostility toward the United States".

Unlike the USA, the European parties to the nuclear deal as well as Russian Federation and China have never raised any complaints about the agreement with Iran and have stressed full commitment to it. Meanwhile, in June, the Senate passed tough new sanctions against both Russian Federation and Iran, highlighting Iran's determination to develop its ballistic missile program.

S.Korea to temporarily deploy four remaining THAAD launchers - ministry
The police tried to disperse the protesters, but some of them attempted to entry the building, which prompted the clashes. Russian Federation shares the concerns voiced by China on the plans to deploy the THAAD system in South Korea, he noted.

Even IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said in March that he has no idea how many years it will take to conclude that Iran has no undeclared nuclear material and activities - because "it depends very much on the level of cooperation from Iran". If Trump doesn't certify, then Congress has 60 days to consider whether to reimpose sanctions on Iran. "The Iranian nuclear deal was created to be too big to fail".

"This is about US national security, this is not about European security", she said.

During this meeting, the Japanese side expressed his interest in extending mutual familiarity between the lawyers and juries of the two countries and also on developing bilateral relations in the area of law and judicial system.

Haley, who last month traveled to Vienna to meet with officials at the International Atomic Energy Agency, will speak Tuesday about why Iran's compliance is "not as straightforward as many people believe" and will list out the country's violations to the deal. She's leaving open the possibility that sanctions relief could remain.

In a letter to the United Nations secretary-general dated August 28, Iran expressed its concern over new unilateral sanctions the USA has imposed.

Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Senate foreign relations committee, said it would be a mistake for the USA to take unilateral action to leave the Iran agreement, especially for political purposes. The key problem for the Trump administration's desire to withdraw from the JCPOA is simple: Iran is actually adhering to the terms of the deal. Outsourcing our national security to the U.N.is not a plan.

The comments by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Yukiya Amano are significant - his agency is policing the deal capping atomic activities that Iran says are peaceful but the USA suspects are a covert pursuit of nuclear arms.

Speaking at the American Enterprise Institute, the neoconservative think tank that was a main cheerleader for regime change in Iraq, Haley argued that the 2015 nuclear deal was deeply flawed. "It's very easy to just talk about compliance and the JCPOA", she said, referring to the deal's formal name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Stanley Fischer steps down from Fed citing 'personal reasons'
Trump has said that a renomination of Yellen is under consideration, though the White House is also looking at other candidates. The resignation of Stanley Fischer, 73, creates another vacancy on the council that oversees the United States central bank.
