No so-called sunset clause in Iran nuclear deal: Iranian Deputy FM

  • US Violates Iranian Nuclear Deal Almost Every Day - Tehran

Trump sees three defects in the deal: its failure to address Iran's ballistic missile program; the terms under which global inspectors can visit suspect Iranian nuclear sites; and "sunset" clauses under which limits on the Iranian nuclear program start to expire after 10 years.

Abbas Araghchi, the deputy prime minister, said today that the 2015 deal was a "success story" for the powers that negotiated it but not for Iran, which had yet to see any benefit from the lifting of sanctions.

A quarterly report on Iran by the United Nations nuclear watchdog, which is policing the deal's restrictions, showed that Iran remained compliant, but also that it had informed the agency of a "decision that has been taken to construct naval nuclear propulsion in future".

The UN nuclear agency said in a report, cited by French news agency AFP, that the Islamic Republic is sticking to the deal's key parameters such as the number of uranium centrifuges and stockpiles.

Annihilation director Alex Garland criticised for alleged white-washing
In case you missed it, while Portman was presenting the Best Director category, she said, "And here are the all-male nominees". Garland's talents are on full display in an adaptation of the first book in Jeff VanderMeer's " Southern Reach " trilogy.

He blamed President Trump's repeated threats to kill off the agreement and his warnings to other countries not to deal with Iran.

Up until now, Iran had indicated that it would stick with the deal if the European partners did the same.

Production of the nuclear material is prohibited under the terms of the nuclear deal with the US and world powers.

International Mother Language Day
Language is fundamental to communication of all kinds, and it is communication that makes change and development possible in human society.

"As far as Iran is concerned, JCPOA is not a successful story", he said.

In exchange of Iran scaling back its nuclear programme, sanctions on its economy were lifted, and Tehran was allowed to resume trading oil and gas on the global market. "Violation of the letter of the deal, not the spirit".

Following the deal, Iran has gradually opened its country to foreign investment and welcomed more foreign visitors, injecting billions of dollars into its ailing economy.

"The Iranians might do things that have nothing to do with nuclear weapons but advance the technical aspects of their nuclear programs over a long period of time", said Marashi. "Iran's commitment in the JCPOA not to go for the nuclear weapon is permanent", he added.

23 state AGs refile lawsuit challenging net neutrality repeal
Perhaps the best chance for net neutrality advocates is enacting legislation protecting net neutrality on the state level. In theory, service providers could choose which companies succeed and fail.

"The deal would not survive this way even if the ultimatum is passed and waivers are extended", Araqchi said in a speech at Chatham House in London.
