"Our big concern is with regard to North Korea, that it is very unlikely the North Korean dictatorship is ready to agree to an global agreement to renounce the building of nuclear weapons if the only agreement in the world that has allowed such a renunciation is at the same time called into question".

"Instead of trying to end the Iran nuclear deal now, the USA should pressure Iran with the threat of leaving the deal at a more strategic moment", the authors concluded.

In the streets of the Iranian capital on Monday, The Associated Press spoke to a series of people about the nuclear deal: students and teachers, young and old, men in fashionable clothes and women in chadors. He noted that North Korea and the United States government have open lines of communication.

During his speech at the UN General Assembly on September 19, the U.S. president described the JCPOA as "the worst and most one-sided transaction Washington has ever entered into", a characterization he often used during his presidential campaign.

If Trump does not certify that Iran is in compliance, the US Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to re-impose sanctions waived under the deal. Iran is complying, as certified in eight reports over the past two years by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the entity charged of monitoring the deal.

One of the criteria set out by the Corker-Cardin legislation for Trump to certify Iran's compliance is that "Iran is transparently, verifiably, and fully implementing the agreement".

The list includes as examples the use of computer models that simulate a nuclear bomb, or the design of multi-point, explosive detonation systems.

Meanwhile, Mrs May again lobbied Mr Trump over USA tariffs on plane manufacturer Bombardier, which employs more than 4,000 workers in Belfast, stressing "the importance of the jobs provided by the Bombardier factory to the people and economy of Northern Ireland". We have IS wreaking havoc in parts of the Middle East, Asia, and occasionally Europe.

An Iran Nuclear Deal summary might find no better place to start than at the basics.

The president's announcement will not end the deal but will pass the buck to Congress.

These are legitimate criticisms of our policy towards Iran.

"Over the long term, I think the Trump administration would not mind if it could goad Iran into violating terms of the deal", Jon Wolfsthal, a senior nonproliferation official in the Obama administration, said in a recent forum at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a think tank.

Analysts say such a move would have a very limited impact on the Guards, who are already subject to a wide range of sanctions and whose external operations arm - the Qods Force - is already designated as a terrorist organisation.

Reports of the possible designation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group, among other measures against Tehran, emerged amid concerns that Trump may refuse to recertify the 2015 nuclear deal.

What would that mean? In exchange, sanctions by the United Nations, the U.S. and the European Union are to be gradually removed from Iran.

Americans are one side of this equation. If the deal holds, it will be pave the way for talks with Iran about all these other issues. Iran could immediately retaliate by attacking Israel and United States troops stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan and on military bases throughout the Middle East.

"It seems the Trump administration only understands swear words, and needs some shocks to understand the new meaning of power in the world", Masoud Jazayeri, spokesman for the Iranian armed forces and Revolutionary Guards commander, said Tuesday.

The metaphor is a clear warning and a conditional declaration of war against the U.S., similar to how Iran is in a war with Daesh. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas has proposed new stipulations for U.S. participation, including eliminating "sunset clauses", which allow some Iranian nuclear activities to resume after several years, as well as tougher inspections and additional restrictions on Iran's missile programs.

How serious Jafari is, remains to be seen.

Iran's assistance to the West in fighting off Islamic State in Iraq and its offer to do so in Syria as well should not be lost sight of. This war would not be limited within Iranian borders. In July, France's Total SA (along with China's state-run China National Petroleum Corporation) signed a $5 billion agreement with Iran to develop its South Pars offshore field. He also regularly writes for BBC Persian.
