Trump plans MORE trading sanctions for Iran as Middle East tensions EXPLODE

The Iranian nation may rest assured that the USA will suffer another humiliating defeat on Saturday and Sunday, the president said, stressing that the U.S. has no right to resort to the snapback mechanism since it has withdrawn from the 2015 nuclear deal and has been encouraging others to scrap the accord as well.

"It's like pulling a trigger and no bullet comes out", a senior U.N. Security Council diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

The United States withdrew from the deal in May 2018, reimposing unilateral sanctions on Iran.

But the other parties to the nuclear deal - Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation - and most of the U.N. Security Council have said they do not believe the United States can reimpose the U.N. sanctions.

These countries, and others on the United Nations security council, argue the USA doesn't have the authority to re-impose United Nations sanctions unilaterally. The October date will be "less significant", he added, once all sanctions are resumed.

USA officials say their decision was prompted by the looming embargo expiration, which would allow countries to engage in the trade of conventional weapons with Iran and abet Tehran's support for Shiite militias in neighboring countries.

"The Iran deal is defective to its core".

Western powers, and a number of Iran's neighbours, believed Tehran was trying to build a nuclear bomb.

Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation, all of which signed up to the Iran nuclear deal, opposed President Trump's decision to withdraw America from the agreement.

Then things got really serious when it was revealed that the film's star was the one who tested positive. It's back to the Batcave for The Batman . and the Dark Knight himself, Robert Pattinson .

"The October deadline matters", said Behnam Ben Taleblu, an Iran analyst with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

He added the E3 and other European countries had told Washington that they didn't want the Iran arms embargo to end, but they were unable to take any action that kept the United Nations arms embargo in place.

Though Raab did not directly say that he supports the U.S.'s calls to sanction Tehran, he did voice his trepidation over the expiring JCPoA agreement.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the executive order was expected to be issued in the coming days and would allow the president to punish violators with secondary sanctions, depriving them of access to the United States market.

Donald Trump pulled out of the agreement in 2018 and the USA has since re-imposed all United Nations sanctions on the country.

Abrams said the returned sanctions included "a ban on Iran engaging in enrichment and reprocessing-related activities, the prohibition on ballistic missile testing and development, and sanctions on the transfer of nuclear and missile-related technologies to Iran".

In the short term, the ramifications are likely to be minimal.

Another of the sources, a European diplomat, said the new executive order would put teeth behind Washington's assertion that the United Nations arms embargo would remain in place beyond October by giving the president secondary sanctions authority to punish arms transfers to or from Iran with U.S. sanctions. "I think this is a very symbolic move by the United States that's part of a concerted effort to kill the JCPOA".
