Meanwhile, European leaders convinced the President of the United States not to withdraw from the agreement with Iran
WASHINGTON – it is Expected that the President of the United States Donald trump in the next few days will refuse to confirm compliance with the agreement with Iran on its nuclear program, concluded in 2015, will give Congress 60 days to resolve the issue about the appropriateness of re-introducing sanctions against Tehran.
By law, the President’s statement should be made before 15 October, but the White house sources admit that it can appear earlier.
“The President has decided on a common strategy against Iran and wants to make sure we have a broad policy, allowing to work with some of the problems, and with all the problems associated with the fact that Iran is a bad actor”, – said Tuesday the press-Secretary of the White house Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Trump mentioned his plans when he addressed the UN General Assembly in September.
“The agreement with Iran was one of the worst and unilateral transactions that have ever entered the United States,” he said.
Calling the agreement a “disgrace” for the United States, trump said, “I think you’ll hear.”
Failure to confirm that Tehran adheres to the agreement concluded with the United States and other world powers on curbing its nuclear program, does not mean its cancellation. It also does not mean an automatic return of the previous sanctions. But many experts admit that it can launch the process that will lead to the re-imposition of sanctions and ultimately to the cancellation of the contract.
European leaders, including the Prime Minister of great Britain Teresa may, in the last days tried to convince trump not to deviate from the agreement.
Mei called the President Tuesday to “reiterate the firm commitment agreement, the United Kingdom and its European partners, and stated that it is vital for regional security,” reads the announcement of the administration of the British Prime Minister.
Several experts and former officials warned that at stake is the credibility of the US and their reliability.
Former Deputy Secretary of state Wendy Sherman in his article in the New York Times noted that any failure to confirm compliance with the agreement, Iran will have “catastrophic” consequences.
“It will drive a wedge between the US and Europe will weaken an important transatlantic link and would increase the influence of Iran, Russia and China,” wrote Sherman.
Professor, school of international service, American University Joshua Rovner believes that any weakening of the agreement with Iran will have a number of less obvious negative consequences for the United States.
“There is a danger of losing a large amount of very valuable intelligence on the activities of Iran,” he told “Voice of America”.
“What I love most about this agreement is that it allows the IAEA to conduct more stringent monitoring over the actions of Iran, due to what the intelligence community can focus on other things. For example, begin to identify networks of people who are engaged in the transport of fissionable materials or the materials used for the nuclear program,” – said the expert.
