These include open-ended curbs on Iran's nuclear industry, instead of the ten-year limit in the present deal. The regime's destructive missiles threaten neighboring countries and international shipping. Iran's ruling elite has let their citizens go hungry while enriching themselves by stealing Iran's national wealth. We are countering Iranian proxy wars in Yemen and Syria. Today, I am adding 14 more to the sanctions list.

To his credit, the president has suppressed his desire to murder the Obama-era JCPOA at critical times.

Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif accused Trump of 'maliciously violating' the nuclear deal. It is perhaps in response to this perspective that so many Iranian officials have demonstrated an impulse to moderate their public response to the recent unrest. As it stands, Iran is currently allowed to enrich uranium to low grades unsuitable for weapons use. NPR's Michele Kelemen is with us now to talk about this. Trump has already declared that he no longer considers the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers to be in the United States' national interest.

Trump outlined four "critical components" that must be included in US legislation regarding Iran.

Second, it must ensure that Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon.

All parties to the accord would have to agree to any changes. Trump is hoping to fix the sunset clause in the deal, which removes restrictions on Iran's nuclear programs by the end of 10 years, as well as make clear that Iran's nuclear and missile programs are "inseparable" and in need of restrictions.

In 2015, the Obama Administration foolishly traded away strong multilateral sanctions to get its weak nuclear deal. He's the head of Iran's judiciary and the brother of Ali Larijani, who's the speaker of Parliament. Others were linked to support for the country's ballistic missile program.

As Iran's ownTasnim News Agency reported on Thursday, Guardian Council Secretary Ahmad Jannati expanded upon Khamenei's narrative by suggesting that committed opponents of the clerical regime had initiated the protest, after which thousands of other participants were "deceived" into participation. They should help us deter Iran's aggression against international shipping.

Under U.S. law, U.S. businesses may not deal with Iran.

The decision had been expected since earlier this week.

But the imposition of new non-nuclear sanctions won't necessarily be enough to win the votes of conservatives such as Rubio for any accord that Corker and Cardin can reach on strengthening the terms of the U.S. -Iran pact. "No one should doubt my word". The Europeans, meanwhile, have said they are willing to discuss the matter with the U.S. but have shown little enthusiasm with Trump's hard line. But Shadi Hamid disputed this in an article in The Atlantic by noting that Middle Eastern adversaries of the US will blame domestic unrest on the West no matter what American leaders do.

Trump first called on the European nations to reopen the deal to modifications in October; there has been no sign that any party to the deal outside Trump is willing to do so.

"If other nations fail to act during this time, I will terminate our deal with Iran", he said.

The White House coupled its sanctions decision with a vow that Trump would seek a new Iran agreement with European allies that signed onto the 2015 deal.
