Boris Johnson calls on Donald Trump to support Iran

The reimposition of broad economic sanctions would make things far worse for the average Iranian, embolden the regime of mullahs to restart their nuclear program and do even more to support terrorism, and give them a handy excuse for crushing the protests.

Additionally, the president is hoping that the Iran deal will require better United Nations inspections of Iran's nuclear sites and that Iran avoid a "breakout period" of being able to produce enough uranium for a nuclear bomb.

Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif responded to Trump's statement on Twitter, saying that it "amounts to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement".

Trump was reportedly encouraged to waive the sanctions by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and national security advisor H.R. McMaster, who warned the President that it would look like he was breaking the U.S. commitments of the deal.

The last time Trump issued a waiver was in September 2017.

"Today, I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", he said in the statement. There are about 400 International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors in Iran, and they indicate Iran is complying with the deal.

On Friday, Trump also approved new sanctions against Iranian officials and organizations, including Sadeq Larijani, the head of Iran's judiciary, and 13 other entities including the cyber unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Iran on Saturday rejected any modification of its nuclear deal with world powers after US President Donald Trump demanded tough new measures to keep the agreement alive.

The 2015 Iran nuclear deal was struck between the US, under the administration of former President Barack Obama, Iran and five other countries.

This would not entail negotiations with Iran but would be the result of talks with European allies, the official said. Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: "either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw", Trump said in a statement. I said I would not certify the nuclear deal-and I did not.

Implementation of the deal hasn't been derailed, but will face some new complicating factors, said the minister.
