Iran rules out any change to nuclear accord

Moscow has a critical attitude toward the latest US statement on reviewing the Iran nuclear deal and will do all it can to resist any attempt to scrape the deal, Russian authorities said Saturday.

Meanwhile, China and Russian Federation, the other two parties, have also repeatedly called on the United States to maintain its commitment to the Iranian Nuclear deal which is "a beneficial practice of solving a critical issue through political and diplomatic means".

Calling it "one of the worst" deal the United States has ever made, Trump, who has signed the waiver twice since taking office, decertified to Congress Iran's compliance with the pact last October.

Trump extended the waivers of key sanctions that were lifted as part of the Obama-era agreement Friday, but he said it was the last time.

Trump backtracks on Mueller meeting, resurfaces misleading Clinton claim
Robert Mueller is leading the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 United States election. That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations.

"In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal".

The White House announced today that President Trump will waive nuclear-related sanctions against Iran.

The statement also hit out at new sanctions imposed on 14 individuals by the US Treasury on Friday over human rights issues and Iran's missile programme.

President kept the Iranian nuclear deal in place Friday for another 120 days but warned it's the last time, as the US seeks a tougher agreement against Tehran with European allies, and the administration slapped with fresh sanctions unrelated to the agreement.

The option to install Duo pops up after the call has ended, and so does the option to block the caller from calling ever again. It appears to be a result of Google Duo merging into Play Services, although there is no official confirmation on that front.

With council members divided in their views of the demonstrations that have roiled the Islamic Republic, it's not yet clear how the discussion will take shape or what might come out of it. Iran's prosecutor general, Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, said Thursday that an American CIA official was the "main designer" of the demonstrations.

Trump had faced a Friday deadline to decide on whether to waive the sanctions. Russia will explain persistently to the US the depravity and viciousness of its sanctions-based policies against Iran and the DPRK, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told TASS on Saturday.

Trump said he wanted Congress to pass a bill requiring "timely, sufficient, and immediate inspections" at all sites by inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and the indefinite extension of limits on Iran's uranium enrichment and other nuclear activities.

The officials notably did not say that Trump expected the other two nations party to the deal - Russian Federation and China - to join in the revision of the deal. Trump has complained that numerous Iranian restrictions expire next decade and has vacillated between talk of toughening the deal and pulling the US out entirely. They were speaking following a meeting with Iran's foreign minister, Javad Zarif.

The decision comes as Iran's government deals with protests over economic hardships and corruption that are linked to frustration among younger Iranians who hoped to see more benefits from the lifting of sanctions.
