Iran's Rouhani declares 'victory' over Trump on nuclear deal

"Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw", he said. "We have sanctioned almost 100 individuals and entities involved with the Iranian regime's ballistic missile program and its other illicit activities", he said.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif describe Trump's decision as "desperate attempt" to "undermine" the deal.

The EU's foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, said, "The deal is working - it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear program in check and under close surveillance".

"I am very happy to see that the White House has failed to disrupt global obligations, break loyalty and stand against the resolution of the United Nations Security Council which was the outcome of an agreement among seven countries", he said. Failure to do so will result in Trump's refusal to sign a waiver suspending sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

After Trump extended the waiver on January 12, senior officials in the administration vowed it would be the "last time" the president waives the sanctions unless the United States and its European allies can find a way to remove in the next four months loopholes in the nuclear deal that Iran has continuously exploited. "This is the last chance".

It will also have a computerized " Terrain Management System " with settings for different sorts of on-road and off-road surfaces. Ford raised President Trump's ire when it announced it was moving Focus production to a new plant, since cancelled, in Mexico.

Several sanctions experts predicted this week that Trump will likely do the same thing he did in October: declare that Iran is not in compliance with the deal - a requirement from Congress, not from the JCPOA itself - while at the same time extending the sanctions waivers and telling Congress to find a way to improve the deal's perceived flaws. "And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately". "No one should doubt my word". I will also follow through on this pledge. It specifically mentioned its refusal to agree to linking its nuclear commitments, which even the Trump administration acknowledges Iran is technically adhering to, with other issues like ballistic-missile tests. "We have no nuclear activity in military sites and we don't seek nuclear weapons".

Trump also slapped new sanctions on 14 Iranian corporations and individuals connected to Iran's ballistic missile program.

Iran's Foreign Ministry said the move "crossed all red lines of conduct in the worldwide community and is a violation of global law and will surely be answered by a serious reaction of the Islamic Republic", state media reported.

Many of those new sanctions were in response to the Iranian government's crackdown of peaceful protests that have swept the country in recent weeks.
