Iran says Trump has thrown Airbus deals into doubt

Guterres Iran nuclear deal must be protected

Last week, Trump waived a series of sanctions against Iran as required under the JCPOA, but warned the European allies and the US Congress that it will be the last such waiver he signs if they fail to agree to radical changes to the nuclear deal.

His comments came in response to President Trump's warning that he is signing the Iran sanctions waiver for the last time and unless the bad flaws in the agreement could be fixed by Washington lawmakers, and the European allies.

"This marks another significant milestone" in the historic agreement, said UN Spokesman Stéphane Dujarric in a statement, noting that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) - reached by Iran, China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union - constitutes a major achievement of nuclear non-proliferation and diplomacy, and has contributed to regional and global peace and security.


"Iran will not lose anything if Trump withdraws from the nuclear deal", he added.

On the same day, the US Department of the Treasury also announced new sanctions designations of fourteen individuals and entities in connection with serious human rights abuses and censorship in Iran, and support to designated Iranian weapons proliferators. The Treasury Department's action hits 14 Iranian officials and companies and businessmen from Iran, China and Malaysia, freezing any assets they have in the USA and banning Americans from doing business with them.

The 2015 nuclear accord, reached after months of painstaking negotiations with the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation, lifted worldwide sanctions in exchange for Iran limiting its nuclear program. President Trump repeatedly criticized the agreement by calling it as one of the worst deals ever made. The next sanctions waivers are due in May.
