PERSISTED IN DESIRE TO DISCONTINUE OBAMA’S HERITAGE: Trump will make a decision about Iranian nuclear agreement in the next several days, it is expected to not confirm it
US President Donald Trump will make a decision about Iranian nuclear agreement in the next several days, Trump spokesman Thursday said, and a senior administration official said he was not expected to confirm it.
“As he said, the president has made a decision,” said Sarah Huckabee-Sanders and mentioned the announcement of the next day, AFP said. “It will be a global strategy,” she added.
A senior administration official said that Trump is expected to not confirm that Iran respects the international agreement to suppress its nuclear program, according to a Reuters agency.
The official, speaking on condition of remaining unnamed, said that Trump is expected to announce a wider US strategy towards Iran that will be more on the line of conflict. The Trump administration often criticizes Iran’s handling of the Middle East.
If Trump refuses to confirm that Iran respects the agreement, the leaders of the US Congress would have had 60 days to decide whether to reintroduce the Tehran sanctions that were suspended under the agreement.
The agreement concluded by Iran and the Great Forces in 2015 (USA, China, Russia, France, Great Britain and Germany) should guarantee a very peaceful and civilian feature of the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for a gradual abolition of sanctions. According to the law, the US president must declare in the Congress every 90 days whether the Iranian agreement is complied with and whether the sanctions are abolished in the interests of the United States. So far he has ratified the agreement, but stressed that the key rating would be on the next October 15th.
US Defense Minister Jim Mattis on Tuesday supported Iran’s nuclear agreement ahead of President Donald Trump’s announcement of whether to hold that agreement and added support for maintaining a nuclear agreement with Iran in the interests of the United States.
