Russian expert suggests signing Iran-style nuke deal with North Korea

Zarif added that the possibility of renegotiating the deal was a “myth.”

As a result, the agreement is that rarest of things: a concrete result of European unity.

In fact, the Financial Times article notes that even Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton, arguably the strongest voice of congressional opposition to the nuclear deal, is not pushing for the immediate re-imposition of economic sanctions after the potential decertification.

Gabriel said he had made clear to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in recent conversations that Europe, due to its relative geographical proximity to Iran, would see its own security interests as damaged if the nuclear deal collapsed. The U.S. ability to shoot down one intercontinental ballistic nuclear missile launched from either of these countries is at best 50-50. Our outraged European allies would not capitulate, and would view the United States as a bully acting in bad faith. Washington can impose sanctions on Iran without using those associated with the nuclear program. Now, it will similarly take years to pursue an effective, coordinated strategy to deal with remaining challenges.

One of the major problems with Trump's pseudo-macho saber-rattling toward Iran and his threat to tear up the nuclear agreement we and five other nations signed with them is that it could blunt the momentum of the reform movement there and give more power back to the hardliners.

If Iran attempts to go nuclear, other states in the Middle East will follow suit.

Therefore, it is important that the elected king of America pay heed to senior officials' advice and consult Washington's Western allies, who are convinced that Tehran has been abiding by the deal's rules, before staging any political or strategic drama.

Analysts say such a move would have a very limited impact on the Guards, who are already subject to a wide range of sanctions and whose external operations arm - the Qods Force - is already designated as a terrorist organisation.

While this may be cute politics, it puts America and our allies in direct harm by providing an excuse for Iran to reconstitute its now dormant nuclear program.

Toying with a serious nuclear agreement to influence Iran in other areas is simply irresponsible and unsafe. But as previous negotiations with Iran have shown, coercion by itself is unlikely to work.

All the other signatories to the agreement - Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation - have urged the United States to stick with the deal, saying Iran has so far stuck to its commitments to restrict its nuclear programme.

Trump can then legitimately claim that he has succeeded in beginning to renegotiate the nuclear agreement as he promised. Our entire national security apparatus, including Kelly, agree Iran is in basic compliance and the deal is working.

The US president has to report regularly to Congress on the state of the deal. The International Atomic Energy Agency and the U.S intelligence community will monitor Iran's nuclear commitments regardless.

US President Donald Trump is scheduled Thursday to make an announcement on whether the US believes Iran is in compliance with the landmark nuclear deal that aimed to stop Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability.

The establishment's distaste for Trump has led it to reflexively avoid risks.
