DONALD Trump has claimed he was "100 per cent right" to be wary of a deal with Iran after the country was accused of "brazen lies" over secret nuclear weapons. According to a White House readout, the prime minister and Trump spoke on Sunday about "the continuing threats and challenges facing the Middle East region, especially the problems posed by the Iranian regime's destabilizing activities". "We're going to show you Iran's secret nuclear files".
If Prime Minister Netanyahu possesses evidence to the contrary, proving that Iran is violating the agreement, it is incumbent upon him to share this information with the IAEA.
The head of Iran's Atomic Energy organization said on Monday that Iran has the technical capability to enrich uranium to a higher level than it could before the multinational deal was reached. "It should never have been concluded".
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi called Netanyahu's presentation "a very childish and even ridiculous play" calculated to sway President Donald Trump's decision on the fate of the USA nuclear deal, The New York Times reported. You know what we got? "That is not acceptable", Trump told reporters at a joint press conference with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.
Asked Monday about his position, Trump once again labeled the deal as disgusting for the USA, but still kept open the possibility of trying to negotiate a new agreement.
A senior US official said Netanyahu gave new US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a heads-up about the presentation he would give while on a visit to Tel Aviv at the weekend. They're not sitting back idly. they're setting off missiles which they say are for television purposes.
First Quarter GDP Grew 2.3%
Nonresidential fixed investment, reflecting spending on commercial construction, equipment and software, rose at a 6.1% rate. That would be the slowest pace in almost five years and follows the fourth quarter's robust 4.0 percent growth rate.
Iran's state-run IRNA news agency says Netanyahu is "famous for ridiculous shows".
"The boy who can't stop crying wolf is at it again". "Undeterred by cartoon fiasco at UNGA", Zarif wrote.
Iran has yet to respond to Monday's presentation. "Big time", Netanyahu said.
"The nuclear deal is based on lies".
Those familiar with the president's thinking said that he has soured on efforts to fix the deal and would prefer to see a wholly new agreement, a demand Iran has rejected in recent days.
Israel has repeatedly called for the 2015 nuclear deal to be altered or scrapped but the leaders of Germany, France and Britain have confirmed their support for it. Israel evidently wants Russian Federation to be a moderating influence on Iran; its defense minister, Avigdor Liberman, yesterday described Russian Federation as a "pragmatic actor" in Syria.
