United States retains Iran deal sanctions relief - for now

Newly re-elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani gestures after delivering a televised speech in the capital Tehran

A senior Iranian military official has accused Washington of "seeking excuses" to tear up the nuclear deal Tehran reached with six world powers by demanding inspections of Iranian military sites.

"There is no need to force a crisis over it at this very moment - as Trump and some deal opponents seem inclined to do - given that elements of the JCPOA don't begin to sunset until 2026-2031", he wrote.

Under the deal, Iran undertook to put limitations on its nuclear program in exchange for the termination of all nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran.

On the campaign trail, he called it "the worst deal ever".

The official added that as the foreign ministers of the seven countries plus the EU Foreign Policy Chief would be in NY this week, all of them have agreed to hold a meeting on the nuclear deal, known as JCPOA.

This as the Treasury Department imposes new limitations against several Iranian individuals and companies, citing their support of Iran's' ballistic missile program and cyber attacks against the U.S.

Colin Kahl, who served as Vice President Joe Biden's national security adviser in Obama's second term, told me in an e-mail this week that it was worthwhile to begin looking at the flaws of the agreement, but he opposed any strategy in which Trump would decertify Iran's compliance. It's a deal that should not have ever been made.

Immigrant Activists and States Vow to Fight Trump on Termination of DACA
Coulter was responding to one of Trump's tweets in which he defended immigrants who came to the U.S.as undocumented children. None of this makes even the tiniest bit of sense, but I will try mightily to make some of it nonetheless.

Dr. Paul, a three-time American presidential candidate and the founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, made the remarks in a recent interview after Trump accused Iran of violating "the spirit" of the worldwide nuclear deal.

"[The accord] can serve as a good model for settling the complex global and regional issues", he said.

OFAC said it had designated Ukraine-based Khors Aircompany and Dart Airlines for aiding sanctioned Iranian and Iraqi airlines by providing aircraft and services.

Iran maintains those launches are for self-defense and do not violate the deal.

Rex Tillerson, the US Secretary of State, will sit down at the same table with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Zarif for the first time on Wednesday at a meeting to review implementation of the 2015 nuclear agreement with Tehran. Seven Iranian employees of the firms also were sanctioned. The administration has been laying the groundwork for the next major deadline October 15, when Trump must decide whether to certify that Iran is meeting its obligations under the nuclear agreement.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani too is expected to touch on the fate of the nuclear deal in his United Nations address on Wednesday, a day after Trump. That means Congress would be grappling with Iran at the same time that it will have to pass a budget.

"We're working hand in hand with the White House and with the State Department to be prepared to deal with this issue depending on the outcome", he said. "I know that could change - I mean, global occurrences sometimes change the trajectory of these issues - but yes, we are definitely preparing".
