Iran president Rouhani vows to strengthen missiles after Trump speech

Iran president Rouhani vows to strengthen missiles after Trump speech

The Trump administration has been calling for a renegotiation of the JCPOA, a request strongly refused by all other parties. "The U.S.is detached from the realities of the worldwide community", he said.

However, Tillerson said the White House is now turning its back on the deal because of "political aspects".

Top diplomats from the seven parties to the 2015 nuclear accord sat down to discuss Iran's grievances about the U.S. antagonistic stance in NY on Wednesday on the sidelines of an annual gathering of world leaders. Those provisions relate to enriching uranium to levels near those needed to produce the fuel for a nuclear weapon, as well as other activities that limit Iran's atomic capabilities at various sites. "Fake empathy for Iranians fools no one".

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday said that although the 2015 Iran deal was not flawless, the global community should stick with it or risk facing another situation like North Korea.

Trump also spoke about North Korea.

Following the meeting, Zarif said that there seemed to be a consensus that it is necessary for all signatories to respect the deal and remain committed to it.

Donald Trump's criticism of Iran in his speech at the United Nations this week has only served to strengthen the country's determination to increase its missile capability, president Hassan Rouhani has said.

"There was some discussion by some people that the nuclear deal isn't very bad but shouldn't stay as it is".

"All countries in the world supported the nuclear deal in the United Nations General Assembly this year [.] except the United States and the Zionist regime (Israel)". In a dismissive jab at Trump he said, "It will be a great pity if this agreement were to be destroyed by rogue newcomers to the world of politics".

Russia's top diplomat, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, in his address, called the Iran deal one of the "more important factors of regional and worldwide security" today.

Speaking a day later, Rouhani said the Iranian people are waiting for an apology from Trump for his "extremely offensive" rhetoric and "unfounded" allegations about Iran. Rouhani said, adding that further negotiations would be a "waste of time", given this history. The Iranians, in turn, have threatened to respond to any US pullout by restarting nuclear activities that could take them closer to bomb-making capability.

Trump must decide by October 15 whether to certify that Iran is complying with the pact, a decision that could sink the deal. On several other issues over his presidency, he has teased reporters with the idea that a major verdict might be imminent, only to delay announcements for weeks or months.

"When the announcement is made, it will fit in to a fundamentally sound and broad strategy aimed at addressing Iran's destabilizing behavior and prioritizing protecting American vital interests", he said.

In any event, the U.S. "We seek no one's permission to defend our land". In the current environment, it is anything but ordinary. [That] it's a deal that's good but we should sit down again and debate to see if it can be improved.

Fitzpatrick agrees it would be a good idea to extend the Iran nuclear deal to include ballistic missiles, "but it is no good talking about this if the USA is not honoring the nuclear agreement". Did Trump intend to apply the naiveté and incompetence that he attributes to Barack Obama and John Kerry, equally to the leaders of China, Britain, France, Germany, the European Union, Russia and China?

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday had the highest-level encounter between the U.S. and Iran of Trump's presidency, meeting Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
