Iran nuclear deal: United Nations urges Trump not to walk away

"There was no new information, and everyone who cares to know that there was no new information knows that there was no new information", he said. His administration has to decide by May 12 whether to reimpose economic sanctions on Tehran, ones that have been repeatedly waived since the agreement was signed by the Obama administration in 2015.

Trump has frequently voiced his opposition to the "insane" deal, which he has described as the "worst ever".

In addition to these concerns, there is also the matter of the West's credibility - especially the United States - as a negotiating partner.

During a live televised event, Netanyahu presented some 55,000 pages of documents and nearly 200 CDs that he called "just a fraction" of the evidence he says proves Iran lied and covered up the facts about its nuclear program, even after signing the 2015 nuclear deal.

The Iranian leadership will want to avoid providing Mr Trump with an excuse for his actions, thus enabling them to put as much blame as possible on the United States for pulling out of the 2015 agreement. We told you about a recent Iranian ballistic missile test - violating global law - where the side of the weapon proclaimed: "Israel must be destroyed". Liberman said. "Iran has for years since the beginning of the program claimed they need a peaceful atom". But Iran has also discussed salvaging the deal.

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on Israel to immediately hand over intelligence to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) related to Iran continuing its nuclear program and violating the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). They're not going to be restarting anything. Every attempt by Iran to establish itself in Syria will be frustrated. We should be most pleased if Trump acts against his own statements and stays the course in Syria; that is, keeps American troops there, keeps the military pressure on Assad regardless of the Russian and Iranian presence in Syria, and clearly states that a permanent Iranian military base in Syria is unacceptable to the US. Washington's demand for an indefinite extension of limits on Iran's nuclear activities is a non-starter.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has questioned the legitimacy of efforts by the USA and France to change the nuclear deal with his country.

Where a world leader stands on Syria defines whether he or she is pro-Israel in a much more material, immediate and important way than where one stands on embassies in Jerusalem.

A decision by Trump to end US sanctions relief would all but sink the agreement and could trigger a backlash by Iran, which could resume its nuclear arms program or "punish" USA allies in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon, diplomats said.

If Iran did pull out of the deal, the United Nations nuclear watchdog would hope that Tehran would continue to apply the protocol allowing it to retain much of its power to inspect any undeclared site it needs to. Tehran's hegemonic efforts in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria would remain untouched, if not intensify in retaliation.

Arguing that the nuclear deal had not permanently denied Iran bomb-making capabilities, Lieberman invoked World War Two.
