House approves bill to undercut nuclear agreement with Iran

So what Iran is saying is based on facts and some of these facts are even acknowledged by the other side and as I said the problem we are having now, the problem of US-Iran relations is one problem, the problem of US-Russia relations is another problem that is having an effect on the conversation.

Those hoping for moderation from Iran as a result of the detente are left holding a mixed bag. Indeed, consistent with statements by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, there have been few changes in Iran's behavior toward its neighbors in the past year.

The agreement, which took effect in January, saw Tehran limit its controversial atomic programme in return for the lifting of nuclear-related sanctions.

Mr. Kerry said Thursday that so far Iran is "living up to it is part of this bargain and obligation". Last month, he effectively endorsed it and said Iran no longer presented "an existential threat to Israel". Some members of Congress are seeking to block the Boeing sale because of Iran's continued support of Bashar al-Assad's government in Syria.

Preceding provided by the White House and by U.S. State Department.

As a result of the nuclear deal, many worldwide sanctions against Iran were lifted, though the U.S.is still facing an uphill battle as it dabbles in potential business deals with the beleaguered Iran.

The Republican-led House has approved a bill that would undercut the milestone nuclear deal with Iran, a largely symbolic move that highlights strident GOP opposition to the worldwide accord. But Republicans said Iran should be punished for continuing to manufacture heavy water, not rewarded with millions of US taxpayer dollars that may end up being used to support terrorism or Tehran's ballistic missile program.

U.S. House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) speaks during a news conference, May 19, 2016, on Capitol Hill in Washington. An exception is Boeing, which is to sell civilian aircraft to Iran reportedly for $25 billion. It would be the first major commercial deal between a US company and the Islamic Republic in decades.

The controversial Iran nuclear deal is developing cracks.

In exchange, several sanctions were lifted and billions of dollars in frozen assets were released.

"She is much more hawkish-sounding on Iran than Obama is", she said.

So it appears - from what we know - that Iran may have been unsuccessful in buying materials or equipment that would have clearly violated the nuclear agreement. Today, it is clear that the JCPOA has blocked Iran's pathways to a nuclear weapon. Iranian banks and foreign banks that are processing Iran-related transactions are not allowed to deal in U.S. dollars.

The House actions on July 14, which were aimed at undermining U.S. President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, came as Obama marked the one-year anniversary of the landmark accord by vowing to uphold it.

The BfV also states "it is safe to expect that Iran will continue its intensive procurement activities in Germany using clandestine methods to achieve its objectives", according to a Fox News article on the report.

Unlike the warming relationship with Havana, however, the USA has gained little else from the nuclear deal with Tehran.

America's willingness to engage in direct negotiations with Iran was the right course of action, leading to the "international unity and sustained engagement" culminating in the JCPOA, he added.
