'Strong indications' Trump won't recertify Iranian compliance with nuclear deal

'Strong indications' Trump won't recertify Iranian compliance with nuclear deal”

"The Islamic Republic of Iran, which is the pivot of resistance in the region, will not allow the Americans and non-Americans to inspect [its] military sites, which are a crucial and strategic part of national security", he added.

In remarks broadcast by state TV, he said the sites and all information about them are "classified".

Iranian President Hassan Rohani on August 29 rejected the United States' demand that UN nuclear inspectors visit Tehran's military bases, while other Iranian officials called the idea a "dream".

Tehran Times daily, quoted Iran's atomic chief, Ali Salehi, as saying: "Iran is considering to call for a meeting of the foreign ministers of six major world powers to address the USA administration's policy toward Iran's worldwide nuclear deal".

President Donald Trump campaigned against the nuclear deal and continues to criticize it but, because Iran is complying, he has certified it twice on the advice of his national security staff.

The agency was charged with monitoring Tehran's compliance with restrictions on its nuclear activities mandated under the nuclear agreement in exchange for relief from worldwide sanctions.

One of Haley's primary missions - not just in Vienna but back at U.N. Headquarters - is to persuade the worldwide community that Iran is not adhering to those obligations, and to ensure that it does.

The country's ballistic missile program and alleged state sponsorship of terrorism are two items not covered by the nuclear deal.

The Vienna-based United Nations nuclear watchdog has true experts and professionals and has a very strong verification program in Iran. New sanctions were created to punish Iran for its human rights record, rocket launches as well as its role in terrorism and arms smuggling.

She and Amano "discussed US concerns about ensuring Iran strictly adheres to its obligations, noting that IAEA reports can only be as good as the access Iran grants to any facility the IAEA suspects of having a nuclear role", according to a USA mission statement.

Iran expects the IAEA head and its inspectors to perform their tasks regarding the nuclear deal with professionalism and honesty, the statement said.

"There is no need to wait for the next certification deadline in October".

'If they give up interference in Yemen and cut support for terrorists, mutual problems between Tehran and Riyadh will be resolved, ' the President said.

The expert noted that one should keep in mind that a large number of countries are highly interested in bolstering cooperation with Iran: Russia, China, EU member states, India, South Korea and the countries of Southeast Asia are demonstrating their willingness to strengthen ties with Tehran.

The Trump administration has been quickly ratcheting up tensions with Iran over the last few weeks.

The accord saw global sanctions eased in exchange for stringent controls on Iran's nuclear programme and closer IAEA inspections.
