Zarif slams Trump's new travel restrictions

Zarif slams Trump's new travel restrictions

Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia were left on the list of affected countries in a new proclamation issued by the president.

In his address at the UN General Assembly last week, Trump repeated his criticism of the deal. It's a deal that was negotiated and therefore it doesn't have all the things that we wanted in the deal.

Chad, North Korea and Venezuela have been added.

"This was a multilateral agreement with hard partners", French ambassador to the U.S. Gérard Araud said, referring to Iran, China, and Russian Federation, whose national interests are often at odds with US and European interests.

ZARIF: Well, certification is not a part of the deal.

"Nothing within the agreement is preventing us from facing the challenges raised by Iran".

Trump administration officials have called on nuclear inspectors to examine Iranian military sites, a demand Iran has rejected. After that, Iran will behave like any other non-nuclear-weapons-state member of the NPT.




Stuart Eizenstat, chairman of the Atlantic Council's Iran Advisory Board for the Future of Iran Initiative, captured some of the unspoken feeling on the panel when he said at the opening of the event that "it now appears that Washington, rather than Iran, may be a bigger threat to the JCPOA".

"All the hopes of both are fading away", Shahverdi said. "It would send a signal that diplomacy is not reliable ... that would affect our credibility in the West when we're not honoring an agreement that Iran has not violated".

Zarif also appeared to be referencing Trump's recent speech at the United Nations General Assembly in NY, to which the Iranian foreign minister stressed "Fake empathy for Iranians fools no one".

If Trump does not certify Iranian compliance, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to fast-track legislation to reimpose nuclear sanctions, a move that Iran would likely claim is a violation of the agreement.

The Europeans say they can't tell if their lobbying efforts have been effective ― and they don't expect to find out until the rest of the world does.

"In a sense what this administration has been saying since it came into office has changed the climate already for Iran", Darroch said.

Darroch said he thought the administration is making headway in raising its concerns about Tehran.
