Hopes US doesn't break nuclear deal with Iran: Moscow

Hopes US doesn't break nuclear deal with Iran: Moscow

According to State-run Mehr News Agency, Rouhani's deputy, and head of the regime's Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Salehi, who was directly involved in JCPOA talks, made a similar statement four days earlier, "We created a lot of bridges to return to the previous conditions (prior to the nuclear agreement) much quicker and better".

In retaliation for the hostile moves, Iran's parliament overwhelmingly voted on August 14 to increase spending on its ballistic missile program.

The US Congress earlier this month approved a series of new sanctions against Iran for its ballistic missile program and other activities in the region. The U.S. legislation also applies terrorism sanctions to the Guard and enforces an existing arms embargo.

Haley's remarks followed a warning from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani against new U.S. sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic.

Russian Federation and China, which have veto power in the Security Council, didn't sign the US letter and have rejected the Trump administration's contention that Iran is undermining the nuclear accord.

Also, following the testing of the space rocket, the U.S., Germany, France and England, which brokered the nuclear deal along with China and Russian Federation, called the launch "inconsistent" with resolution 2231 which calls upon Tehran not to conduct activities related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

Trump's Threat 'Very Worrisome', South Korean Presidential Adviser Says
It is rare for South Korean presidents to publicly touch on the issue of forced labor, which has not been raised in recent years. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Monday said the US military is ready amid heightened tensions with North Korea .

"Iran has achieved defense deterrence power and the enemies acknowledge Iran's high defense power in the region and the world", he stressed.

Zarif has repeatedly said his country's missile launches are not in defiance of the resolution because the program is for defensive purposes only, and the missiles are not capable of carrying nuclear warheads. Earlier this month, President Rouhani told the Austrian ambassador to Tehran that "the full implementation of the nuclear deal benefits the European Union and the region; therefore, it is necessary that the European Union increases its efforts and role in this regard". But they are also expected to ratchet up tensions further with the Trump administration.

"The missile program was not directly part of the nuclear deal, but it certainly inches very close to violating the spirit of the deal, and in any event the sanctions, Iranians would argue, have done that already", Banai said.

Speaking to members of parliament in a televised address, Rouhani said the US was not a "good partner". They deprive themselves of the advantages of peace'.

"In recent months, the world has witnessed that the U.S., in addition to its constant and repetitive breaking of its promises in the JCPOA (nuclear deal), has ignored several other global agreements and shown its allies that the United States is neither a good partner nor a reliable negotiating party", he said. The administration said the review will be completed before the deal is up for recertification in October.
