German officials: Iran working to build nuclear-armed missiles

On Sunday, Europeans resorted to a language closer to the rationale of bargaining with Washington over the crisis regarding the nuclear agreement with Iran, agreeing on common points between them and deferring the controversy till the time the US Congress reaches a clear American position on the nuclear deal in two months.

It is impossible for Tehran to agree to the USA demands to grant the inspection teams of the IAEA freedom of movement on its territory and will not hesitate to take hard decisions in defense of its national sovereignty and shall obstruct Washington, which wishes a repeat of its Iraqi experience following Saddam's 1991 defeat. Given worldwide support for the landmark accord, he is in a bind, and thus aims to kill the deal by attempting to create global consensus over sanctioning Iran for non-nuclear reasons that have to do with purported Iranian malign "behavior" in the region.

The situation could also quickly deteriorate given the Trump administration's increasingly frequent declarations of regime change as an overarching foreign policy objective.

They said this conclusion is also shared by the members of 5+1 group - Britain, China, France, Germany, the European Union, and Russian Federation, and the International Atomic Energy Agency which is in charge of monitoring and verifying Tehran's compliance with the JCPOA.

Trump's decertification of the JCPOA and his ultra-hawkish, anti-Iran rhetoric have not only alienated U.S. allies, but predictably united a usually divided Iranian public behind their government.

Ayatollah Khamenei said he welcomed expressions of support for the accord from European states but if the USA tore up the deal, Iran would "shred it to bits". In fact, he has thrown the ball in the Congress' court, leaving American lawmakers with the burden of making the right decision about the future of the nuclear deal.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei responded to President Donald Trump's threats of decertifying the nuclear deal Wednesday. Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, offered similar praise for the new USA posture, saying in a statement that President Trump "has created an opportunity to fix this bad deal, to roll back Iran's aggression and to confront its criminal support of terrorism".

Trump has yet to announce a withdrawal from the pact, instead kicking it to Congress for a decision.

UNESCO incurred the wrath of Israel and the United States in July when it declared the core of Hebron, a city in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, an endangered Palestinian World Heritage site.

The US Congress is expected to continue to try and please all parties. On October 13, he followed suit with JCPOA. But he placed the onus on Congress to add new terms not covered by the JCPOA, including sunset clauses and ballistic missiles.

In order to enact Trump's requested legislation, GOP senators would have to muster 60 votes, including eight Democrats, which is unlikely.

Trump's refusal last week to re-certify the agreement has sparked a new war of words between Iran and the United States, fueling growing mistrust and a sense of nationalism among Iranians.

"Breaking the Iran agreement would not only free Iran from limits placed on its nuclear program", Sen. Its members appear convinced that the United States must abide by worldwide agreements so that they are not accused of not respecting signed agreements.

This is particularly disturbing in light of the volatile standoff between the United States and nuclear-armed North Korea.

Iran is not only violating the spirit of the no-nukes deal, it is violating its letter.
