US House votes to block sale of commercial aircraft to Iran

The secretary of state and other top administration officials believe remaining in the deal would ultimately be better than quitting it because Iran is widely seen to be complying with the letter of the agreement it reached with the US and five other world powers, according to the people, who asked not to be identified discussing diplomatic efforts.

The Islamic Republic of Iran's pursuit of ballistic missiles and continued support for designated terrorist organizations violates the spirit of the 2015 nuclear deal, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in London Thursday.

Supporters of the JCPOA such as Ali Vaez, senior Iran analyst at the International Crisis Group, say the remarkable access the West now has to Iran's nuclear program via the deal and the IAEA inspections should not be thrown away lightly.

The United States will renew a waiver of the key, and most punitive, sanctions that it imposed on Iran before the nuclear deal was ultimately struck, the sources said.

September 14 is the deadline for the Trump administration to decide whether it will continue to waive Iranian sanctions under the deal.

After the last certification to Congress in July, Trump told The Wall Street Journal, "If it was up to me, I would have had them noncompliant 180 days ago".

Discussions with America's key global partners about how to handle Iran after some of the current agreement's nuclear restrictions expire are also necessary.

The United States on Thursday agreed to continue for now to exempt Iran from nuclear-related sanctions but slapped new measures against targets accused of cyber attacks or fomenting militancy.

At issue is an upcoming White House decision on whether to certify that Iran is meeting its end of the bargain.

Bakhtiar said the Europeans do not want to be part of the USA game and be blamed for its collapse, urging them to pool their efforts to make the U.S. remain committed to the deal.

The current crisis with North Korea has been discussed often in this context - that tearing up the Iran deal would harm USA credibility with North Korea as it tries to negotiate for Pyongyang to denuclearize. Economic sanctions against Iran were dropped in exchange for Tehran limiting its nuclear program.

Iran rejects that it has broken the agreement. "As Secretary Tillerson has just said, the Iranians have got to behave and fulfill their side of the bargain". And still today, the fallout from the invasion is undermining USA national security.

New sanctions won't work either, the three said.

In a carefully read 20-minute address at the American Enterprise Institute, Haley argued that the nuclear deal can't be considered in isolation.
