Iran rules out possibility of renegotiating nuclear deal

We are entering the final stretch ahead of President Trump's likely decision to pull out of the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

The European signatories to the deal have been trying to persuade Trump to save the pact, reached under his predecessor Barack Obama.

Earlier, the President of the United States Donald trump is demanding that the European allies until may 12 to "fix the awful flaws of the" nuclear deal of the year 2015, otherwise, it will refuse to extend the state of the lifting of USA sanctions against Iran.

"I believe the JCPOA was an important diplomatic victory and I think it will be important to preserve it", Guterres said in an interview with BBC Radio 4, according to Iran's state-run Tasnim News agency.

One of the main sticking points has to do with the "sunsets", where the United States in effect wishes to find a way to extend some of the limits on Iran's nuclear program beyond their expiration dates under the agreement.

Lieberman also told the paper that Israel won't be interfering with Syria's internal affairs, but said that what can not be tolerated is "Iran's attempts to turn Syria into a forward position against Israel".

The nuclear deal was created to limit Iran's nuclear weapons program in exchange for the easing of global sanctions on Iran; however, Trump has been criticizing the "sunset clauses" in the deal, which allow Iran to restart its uranium enrichment program after 2025.

A Monday presentation by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - which featured supposedly new revelations of Iranian perfidy and bad faith - emboldened Trump and his lieutenants, though many experts dismissed Netanyahu's documents as a trove of outdated and widely known information.

It was agreed that Iran would benefit from the suspension of crippling economic sanctions if it promised to abandon its nuclear development plans. But Iran has also discussed salvaging the deal.

Israel has also strongly criticized the accord and presented new intelligence this week alleging Iran concealed a nuclear weapons program.

Russian Federation could prevent the Middle East from plunging into a massive conflict between Israel and Iran triggered by "a game of chicken that could easily spiral out of control", a leading regional crisis expert warned.

Beyond generally weakening Iran's military capabilities, hard-liners in particular are concerned that negotiating over the country's missile program will allow for a gradual spillover of Israel's sporadic attacks on Syria, which generally avoid global condemnation. It is unclear if American pique will be followed by all of Europe falling into line with re-imposed sanctions; there is a lot of money in doing business in Iran and absent unambiguous proof Iran violated the agreement it is hard to see them going along in earnest.

In Washington the statement of the foreign Ministry of Iran has not yet been commented on.

On January 12, Trump announced he was waiving the U.S. sanctions for the "last time".

The United States likely persuaded Israel into doctoring and framing intelligence Iraq War-style in a bid to undermine the Iran nuclear accord and pave the road for a U.S. invasion, analysts told Sputnik.

During the press conference with Macron, Trump warned Iran against restarting its nuclear program saying, "You'll find out about that".

Zarif likened attempts to renegotiate the nuclear deal to reneging on a real estate agreement. Without the Iran nuclear deal, Iran would never accept such rigid observations on its nuclear sites.
