Rouhani: Trump failed to kill nuclear deal

Zarif discussed Yemen and Bahrain Issues with British counterpart

Two days after U.S. President Donald Trump extended the waiver on Iran nuclear sanctions and kept the 2015 Iran nuclear deal alive, Iran's "moderate" President Hassan Rouhani declared victory for the Islamic Republic.

Mr Lavrov called these new sanctions an "attack" on Iran, a longstanding Russian ally, and said Mr Trump's actions were "deplorable".

"And the reality is that Iran is fulfilling all its obligations" under the nuclear deal, he said. In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal.

Arab News columnist Abdel Aziz Aluwaisheg wrote: "While there is no consensus now on the nuclear deal, all actors - including Europeans - agree that Iran has to be held accountable on non-nuclear issues, including its ballistic missile program, its support for terrorism and its destabilizing activities in the region".

Under the 2015 agreement with six nations, Iran agreed to restrict its nuclear programme for at least 10 years in exchange for the loosening of economic sanctions that had crippled its economy.

"He intends to work with our European partners on some kind of follow-on agreement that enshrines certain triggers that the Iranian regime can not exceed related to ballistic missiles, related to nuclear breakout period... to inspection and that would have no sunset clause", said the officials, according to The Hill. The signatories of the accord were the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the EU.

To keep the 2015 deal alive before he is required to sign another waiver in 120 days from now, Trump outlined four "critical components" that must be included in United States legislation regarding Iran.

He also was being pursued by Kelly as an offensive coordinator at UCLA and Arizona for its vacant head-coaching job. Brad Childress has just retired after spending five years coaching with Matt Nagy in Kansas City.

Furthermore, Mr Lavrov said the agreement's collapse could also jeopardise dialogue with North Korea.

Zarif responded on Twitter that the deal was not renegotiable and that Trump's stance "amounts to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement".

"I don't think anybody has so far produced a better alternative", said the Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson. His last condition required Capitol Hill lawmakers to pass a bill unilaterally incorporating Iran's missile program into the nuclear deal.

He told the global community, in particular his European allies, either to fix the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or he would withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal.

Trump delivered a blunt ultimatum to European powers, saying, "Fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw from the agreement".

During a phone call, French President Emmanuel Macron also urged Mr Trump not to scrap the deal.
