EU Leaders Reaffirm Commitment To Iran Nuclear Deal Despite Trump Opposition
Oct 21, 2017, 00:40
Reinstating old nuclear sanctions on Iran for non-nuclear reasons, however, is a violation of the agreement.

The American leader called for the deal to be amended to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons or intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Trump's refusal to recertify Iran's compliance with the JCPOA came one day after the U.S. announced it would withdraw from the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The United States is returning to its original mission of prevention.
The US Congress is expected to continue to try and please all parties. But he placed the onus on Congress to add new terms not covered by the JCPOA, including sunset clauses and ballistic missiles. As such, it is clear that rather than combating Iran's threatening posture, the influx of money thrust into the Iranian economy, coupled with ambiguities in the text of the agreement, have had the reverse effect of emboldening the Iranian regime and fortifying its hegemonic ambitions.
