Trump has grounds to say Iran violating nuclear deal: Haley

"But the deal was constructed in a way that makes leaving it less attractive".

One reason for the unease about simply renouncing the deal is the united support for it among the United States' European allies as well as Russian Federation and China, whose backing for powerful sanctions against Iran were crucial in forcing Tehran to the negotiating table.

Haley rejected suggestions that decertifying the Iran deal could send a message to others involved in negotiations with the U.S. - particularly North Korea - that Washington is an unreliable dealmaker, prone to back out of agreements as easily as it makes them.

Under the nuclear deal and the related USA law, the president must tell Congress every 90 days whether Tehran is complying with its obligations under the deal, in which Iran agreed to roll back its nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief. ("The promised 24/7 inspections apply only to Iran's "declared" nuclear sites.") This is the most honest assessment of the deal to date - Iran is complying with the bulk of a flawed deal where the only penalty is re-imposition of sanctions that blow up the deal.

The Trump administration may feel Iran has been given too free a rein given its record of violating its global treaty obligations on nuclear issues. Fortunately, the US seems to accept the weakness of its case: Trump has twice certified that Iran is in compliance to the US Congress.

"This is about US national security, this is not about European security", she said.

"The real challenge the administration faces, however, is not identifying the weaknesses in the JCPOA, but rather determining what to do about them", said Singh, now with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley delivers remarks at the Security Council meeting at U.N. headquarters in NY on April 7. "It's past time we had an Iran nuclear policy that acknowledged that".

Kushner promises to present peace plan within four months
They are seeking an end to Israeli settlement construction and also want the U.S.to support the creation of the Palestine state. Well-informed Palestinian sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that no significant breakthrough occurred at the Abbas-Kushner meeting.

She insists that the Iranians are already in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231, the UN's endorsement of the JCPOA framework, for testing ballistic missiles and engaging in other nefarious "non-nuclear" activity, including "terrorism (and) the support for murderous regimes". But "are we going to take care of our allies, or look out for our interests?" This is not about European security.

Jonathan Finer, who served as chief of staff to John Kerry, the former secretary of state, said that Ms. Haley's speech "sounded like a pretext for deliberately unraveling the deal, without offering a serious alternative or explaining how they would deal with the consequences".

"You can't put lipstick on a pig", Haley added. But even so, Iran has been caught in multiple violations over the past year and a half.

In a letter to the United Nations secretary-general dated August 28, Iran expressed its concern over new unilateral sanctions the US has imposed.

There were several flat-out mistakes in Haley's remarks, noted former member of the USA nuclear negotiating team Richard Nephew, who went to the trouble of cataloguing them. New sanctions would need 60 votes in the Senate, and key Democrats who opposed the nuclear deal, such as Senator Charles Schumer, have not said whether they would vote for action that could destroy the Iran accord. "We decided long beforehand that we would not get a broader agreement".

"The Iran deal is about the nuclear issue, nothing else".

Haley said the U.S. must consider the regime's repeated demonstrated hostility towards the United States.

"If it goes back on his desk, it's probably the end of the nuclear deal", Goldenberg said. Instead of trying to reason with the two regimes, the official said that the Trump administration will now just act.
