Italian expert says USA won't leave nuclear deal

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley recently pressed the International Atomic Energy Agency regarding inspections of Iranian military sites.

"EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini also reaffirmed the bloc's staunch support for the pact, despite hawkish signals from the United States administration, the EU's main ally, of its unilateral desire to torpedo the multi-party, worldwide agreement".

Rouhani, who was inaugurated to serve a second term earlier this month, said on Tuesday that the US lacked any backing from the other signatories for its hostile stance toward the deal, and that the Trump administration faced "the most hard circumstances" in trying to upend it.

Iran has declared that they will not allow access to military sites.

The global agreement is facing serious threats of collapse as tensions mounted between Washington and Tehran recently.

The Trump administration has certified Iran's compliance twice under a law that requires it to notify Congress of Iran's compliance every 90 days.

Meanwhile, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton - a staunch critic of the nuclear deal and a top ally of Trump - has re-upped his call to ditch the deal. "Saudi Arabia should stop backing terrorists", Rouhani told state TV on Tuesday.

French President Emmanuel Macron had said earlier in the day that he saw "no alternative" to the nuclear deal.

Regarding Haley's visit to the IAEA, Ghassemi said, "She can claim she had a successful trip, but the framework of the nuclear deal is clear and we made an agreement about this and it has been confirmed by the United Nations Security Council with a resolution".

US President Donald Trump, who during his election campaign had called the Iranian nuclear deal a "disaster" and "the worst deal ever negotiated", approved new sanctions on Tehran this month for its missile program.

The Obama administration presented it as a diplomatic triumph that averted a potential war with Iran and placed Tehran's nuclear work under worldwide inspections.

Bolton also suggests considering more drastic measures, including supporting "democratic opposition" to the Iranian regime, backing the rights of various ethnic and religious minorities in Iran, ending all landing and docking rights for Iranian aircraft and ships at allied ports and ending all USA visas for Iranians, including for scholarly and sports exchanges.

She said Iran could not "use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage". "If they are considering a breakout for the purposes of [nuclear] capability, they will probably try to maximize their benefits and minimize the blowback". The expert stressed that over the past two years dozens of foreign leaders and businessmen have visited the country concluding billion-dollar deals.

Bolton, who served in the State Department during the first term of the George W. Bush administration, says the foreign policy bureaucracy is a powerful force in Washington.
