Rouhani: if Iran's demands aren't met, new actions to be taken

1,000 More US Troops Deployed To The Middle East

1,000 More US Troops Deployed To The Middle East

As European allies look to preserve the agreement, Van Hollen is calling for the U.S.to de-escalate tensions and rejoin the nuclear deal.

The allegations of spying come as Iran and the USA continue to spar over who was responsible for the recent string of oil tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman.

Asked about the recent attacks on oil tankers, he described those as limited and said: "So far, it's been very minor". "We'll see what happens".

There will not be any military confrontation between Iran and the United States, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council was quoted as saying on Wednesday by the state news agency, IRNA.

Although the USA will act to defend itself, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that Trump "does not want war" and the president has said he's open to negotiating with Tehran.

Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CodePink, declared in response to the troop deployment, "This is the Trump administration's march to war with Iran".

With few real options left, their trust in the Trump administration running low, and fears rising that conflict could break out, major powers Germany, France and Britain have been reduced to repeating calls for restraint as pressure builds and Iran threatens to walk away from the painstakingly drafted 2015 deal.

On May 8, 2018, Trump pulled the United States out of the nuclear accord.

In the Monday interview, Trump said that although Middle East petroleum was important to other countries, it is not strategically critical to the U.S. given America's current oil self-sufficiency.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced on May 8 that Iran would stop observing restrictions on its stocks of enriched uranium and heavy water agreed under the deal, a move he said was in retaliation for the unilateral United States withdrawal. Officials told NPR that the troops are primarily intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance (ISR); force protection and engineers.

A senior US official said the U.S.is most concerned about any violation of the deal that would reduce the time Iran would need to produce a nuclear weapon. The Pentagon has released new photos created to back up its claims. Besides, one can hardly overlook the fact that Bolton's innate hostility towards Iran is shared by America's leading allies in the Middle East, namely Saudi Arabia, Israel and the UAE. "It is because of the economic and political benefit some groups in Iran would have if there is a war. Specialists have also noted some confusion in Western chancelleries and even a split in the White House between sabre-rattlers and more prudential realists".

"We need to do everything so that it doesn't come to this".

In announcing the new deployment before he resigned, Shanahan said the forces are "for defensive purposes to address air, naval, and ground-based threats" in the Mideast.

US President Donald Trump said he would consider military action against Iran to prevent it from getting nuclear weapons. They also have set up a barter-type system to evade possible US sanctions.

Shanahan abruptly stepped down Tuesday before his formal nomination ever went to the Senate, citing a "painful" family situation.

Analysts, as well as many Arab leaders not aligned to Saudi Arabia, believe Iran may be trying to demonstrate the chaos it can create in the oil industry if the U.S. does not backpedal on economic sanctions.
