Trump team's typo and Netanyahu's fluff can't obscure Iran deal stakes

Trump team's typo and Netanyahu's fluff can't obscure Iran deal stakes

President Trump's challenge is to use Iran's new vulnerability, now that its secrets have been exposed, to get the tougher deal he wants.

On May 12, President Donald Trump will decide whether to honor the historic agreement or scrap it, thereby, perhaps killing any chance of avoiding a major armed conflict in the embattled region.

Mr Guterres called on the U.S. leader not to withdraw from the deal, saying that it risked a real possibility of war if the agreement was not maintained.

"The aggression of the Zionist entity on our advisers in Syria guarantees us the right of response", said Boroujerdi.

Tonight, I'm here to tell you one thing: Iran lied.

Mr Netanyahu discussed Iran by telephone with Mr Trump over the weekend and met with new US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Tel Aviv on Sunday.

However, if USA sanctions relief were to be lifted and thus the nuclear deal abandoned, this would trigger a backlash by Iran which could resume its nuclear arms program or "punish" U.S. allies in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon, diplomats said. Prime Minister Netanyahu's dramatic announcement of the intelligence feat yesterday must serve as the predicate to our withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), accurately characterized by President Trump as "the worst deal ever".

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also reaffirmed his country's support for the landmark nuclear deal, noting that the JCPOA was "based on tough verification".

The hottest items Netanyahu revealed were the 2003 quotes from top Iranian officials about how they meant to continue secret work after the official program, called "Project Amad", was stopped.

The analyst then commented on Netanyahu's well-rehearsed Monday show, in which he claimed Israel has incriminating evidence that Iran is pursuing a nuclear program in violation of the milestone 2015 deal.

"After signing the nuclear deal in 2015, Iran intensified its efforts to hide its secret files", Netanyahu said.

She said he also stayed with her last fall, but she asked him to leave because she was suspicious he was using drugs in the house. The officer's vehicle was found abandoned Wednesday morning off a road in Norridgewock, state police said.

The project, he said, had the explicit goal of producing five warheads, each with the yield of 10 kilotonnes of TNT.

A 2007 National Intelligence Estimate judged with "high confidence" that Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program in the fall of 2003.

He said this was evidence that Iran had lied about its nuclear ambitions before the deal was signed in 2015. Trump says the discovery vindicated his criticism of the deal.

Macron, who met Trump in Washington last week to try to convince him to not walk away, admitted he still did not know what decision the USA leader would take.

That said, no one knows how much of the administration's posturing is bluster, bluff or some other bargaining tactic.

CNN reported that Israel sees Iran an existential threat and the biggest danger to the future of the country, hence its concern about Iran's increasing influence in the Middle East.

The deal was struck by Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, the United States and Iran.

Trump has signaled he will pull out of the agreement by May 12 unless it is revised, but he faces intense pressure from European allies not to do so.

"The IAEA have released 10 reports certifying that Iran has fully complied with its commitments", she said.

Mousavi went further, saying Netanyahu was "a serial liar", also citing a 2011 microphone leak incident, in which former French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly spoke lowly of the Israeli premier.
