Trump says he will soon take a decision on Iran sanctions

Meanwhile an Iranian politician said Iran "will not mourn" if the U.S. pulls out of the nuclear deal. He wants to require more robust inspections of nuclear facilities.

"Should the United States withdraw from the JCPOA, Iran will carry out its response plan so rapidly that would surprise the Americans", he said.

Waiving the big sanctions and slapping on some new small ones is a maneuver we've seen the Trump administration do before, as it deals with its dilemma on the nuclear deal.

Under the deal, Iran allows strict limits on its nuclear program in return for easing of economic sanctions. "Today, I am adding 14 more to the sanctions list".

The new strategy is likely to accelerate tensions between the US and Iran, which received significant global sanctions relief after the 2015 nuclear agreement was not signed.

Though AIPAC staunchly opposed the deal during the negotiations, it has not publicly addressed Trump's threat to pull out of the accord. The speculation is that he will keep us in the deal but apply some very specific sanctions to Iranian officials with ties to terrorism.

The officials said Trump expected America's European allies who are also parties to the 2015 accord, which swapped sanctions relief for a rollback of Iran's nuclear program, to join with him in reworking the deal.

Cleveland never led, and, thanks in large part to a 35-point third quarter, the Raptors took a commanding 25 point lead into half. LeBron James isn't throwing his sneakers over the telephone wire just yet, although not for the reason people may think .

Currently, the deal has a sunset clause after which, even President Barack Obama acknowledged, Iran would have a breakout time for producing enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon of about zero.

"I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal".

"This would not entail direct negotiations with the Iranians, but would be something the US works out with European partners only", a White House official told Fox News.

Two senior Trump administration officials told Reuters that the president, a Republican, had privately expressed reluctance to heed the advice of top advisers recommending he not reimpose the suspended sanctions.

President Donald Trump Friday said he was open to working with Congress on bipartisan legislation regarding Iran, but any bill he signs must include "four critical components", indicating this was the "last chance" for the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran to be fixed. The administration accuses Larijani of being responsible for the violent crackdown on dissidents in Iran during recent protests.

"The proper implementation of the agreement should be accompanied by a strengthened dialogue with Iran on its ballistic program and its regional policy, in order to guarantee better stability in the Middle East", the French presidency said in a statement on the call.
