Iran Nuclear Deal Will Remain for Now, White House Signals

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration signaled on Wednesday that it would not, for now, jettison the Iran nuclear deal, despite the president’s harsh criticism of the agreement during the campaign.

Facing a deadline of Thursday, the administration said it was waiving sanctions against Iran, as required under the deal. To have done otherwise would have violated the accord, freeing the Iranians to resume the production of nuclear fuel without any of the limits negotiated by the Obama administration two years ago.

But while acknowledging that the deal would remain in place, the administration imposed modest new sanctions against several Iranian individuals and four organizations, including a China-based network that supplied missile-related items to a key Iranian defense entity...

The Office of Foreign Assets Control at the Treasury Department announced that among those targeted for sanctions were two senior Iranian military officials, Morteza Farasatpour and Rahim Ahmadi.

Mr. Farasatpour coordinated the sale and delivery of explosives and other material for the Scientific Studies and Research Center of Syria, while Mr. Ahmadi directs the organization responsible for Iran’s solid-fuel ballistic missile program, according to the Treasury Department.

Those sanctions appeared similar to missile-related sanctions that Mr. Obama put in place in January 2016, as the Iran deal went into effect.

The Treasury Department also announced sanctions against a network of companies associated with a Chinese citizen, Ruan Runling, which supports Syria and supplies technology and financing to aid Iran’s missile program...

Of course it will.  It's not like the deal was just between the U.S. and Iran.  The Trumpsters were stupid to believe otherwise

Meh, a broken campaign promise I hope he chooses to remain broken. The base loved it but the world's a complicated place where imperfect agreements are better than conflict.
  

For too long have we sat under the thumb of mankind! The time has come to *oppose* that thumb!

I don't think Iran cares. They're going to do whatever they want no matter what.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is "running" for President (again)  I wonder if he'll win?  Undecided



The Left Loved him when he spoke to the UN


Ahmadinejad to Trump: 'The contemporary US belongs to all nations'
