Global arms control experts warn Trump against scrapping Iran nuclear deal

"The consequences of a unilateral withdrawal from the deal would be disastrous, isolating the United States while risking a second nuclear crisis and a disastrous war", said Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council and a vocal supporter of the agreement.

This would allow the U.S. to impose further sanctions against the Regime, would show that the U.S. was prepared to get tough on Iran, and could bring Iran back to the negotiating table as they would not survive without the sanctions relief guaranteed under the nuclear deal. Trump even indicated he would be over-ruling Tillerson if he de-certified Iranian compliance in July interview with The Wall Street Journal. He said he expected Iran to be declared noncompliant the next time - this October. "Iran doesn't need the U.S. to accomplish its goals".

"I$3 f IAEA inspectors become aware of a suspicious location, Iran has agreed to implement the Additional Protocol ... which will allow inspectors to access and inspect any site they deem suspicious", it said in one fact sheet.

Separately, French President Emmanuel Macron has come out in support of the multilateral nuclear deal with Iran, saying France sees "no alternative" to the agreement.

In addition, foreign financial institutions that facilitate significant transactions for, or persons that provide material or certain other support to, the entities and individuals designated today risk exposure to sanctions that could sever their access to the USA financial system or block their property and interests in property under US jurisdiction. President Obama himself is reportedly aware of the campaign, according to these officials.

September 14 is the deadline for the Trump administration to decide whether it will continue to waive Iranian sanctions under the deal.

"The administration seeks to bring a change in Iran's behavior", a senior administration official told the Post, identifying Iran's continued ballistic missile development program, its support of terrorist groups such as Hezbollah, its use of Shiite militias in neighboring countries, and its ongoing human rights abuses including its jailing of Americans and other foreigners, as examples of the behavior that the administration seeks to change. Instead of getting rid of the deal, they want to renegotiate a better one.

Apple's iOS App management removed from iTunes on Windows 10
Apple announced iOS 11 will launch on September 19 in the form of a free update for the iPhone and iPad. When they could happen is as yet unknown and also what the fate of the Windows version will be.

Whatever step by the Trump administration on Thursday, it will set the stage for talks on the agreement's future with European allies and others during next week's U.N. General Assembly. "They've violated so many different elements and they've also violated the spirit of that deal", Trump said.

The secretary of state and other top administration officials believe remaining in the deal would ultimately be better than quitting it because Iran is widely seen to be complying with the letter of the agreement it reached with the USA and five other world powers, according to the people, who asked not to be identified discussing diplomatic efforts.

Between 2025 and 2030, the agreement to limit Iran's stocks of low-enriched uranium and the number of centrifuge cascades it can operate will expire, allowing Iran to erect an industrial-scale nuclear program if it chooses.

The three former Obama administration officials also said the deal is nearly impossible to renegotiate unless the US could give Iran some new concessions or incentives, an idea Trump seems to oppose. "You can't demand more concessions for the same" incentives, Kahl said.

People familiar with internal discussions said Haley's team didn't work out her speech with Tillerson and his team in advance. And now, any new sanctions would negatively impact their economies, and they'd be unlikely to give up their new business.

Lawmaker Ardeshir Nourian warned against any unilateral walkout of the deal, saying this would effectively spell the end of the agreement.
