Dems who opposed Iran nuke deal urge Trump to keep pact

Officials familiar with the internal deliberations as well as informed sources outside the administration say they expect Mr Trump to tell lawmakers that the Iran deal is not in the U.S. national security interest despite Iran's technical compliance. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley have said the U.S. interprets the agreement differently than the other countries involved. The requirement for certification that Iran is complying with the deal came out of the dissatisfaction by Republicans over the Obama administration's agreement.

The deal, which gave Iran relief from economic sanctions in return for constraints on its nuclear program took effect in January 2016.

President Trump's upcoming decision on how he will deal with the unsafe and flawed nuclear agreement is a moment for moral clarity and may be a defining moment of his presidency. Trump's strenuous opposition to the agreement forged by the Obama administration - which Trump criticized during the campaign as the worst deal ever - means any attempt to change the conditions would be interpreted by Tehran as an effort to blow it up.

"The decertification is an essential first step to persuading the Europeans that the alternatives to fixing the deal could be President Trump's decision to abandon the deal", said Mark Dubowitz, CEO of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a nonpartisan policy institute.

On the other hand, some argue decertification and the possibility of USA sanctions on Iran might win support from the Europeans.

She pointed to other worldwide agreements that the United States has abandoned but the rest of the world has remained committed to, including the Paris Agreement on climate change, and said, "What will happen would simply be that the USA will contravene a UNSC resolution and the rest of the world will stick to it".

US President Donald is supposed to submit Iran compliance report to the Congress by October 15. Murphy said he hoped that if the president does decertify the deal, that Congressional Republicans would refuse to put sanctions back on Iran.

No, the deal will not be invalidated if the administration decertifies it.

Trump is expected to decline this week to certify Iran's compliance in the 2015 agreement, referring it to Congress. French President Emmanuel Macron has expressed concern about Iran's ballistic missiles and the "sunset" provisions as well.

"There is no technical nor political space to renegotiate this deal", Federica Mogherini, the EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, told PBS Wednesday.

She noted that the worldwide community, including the European Union and other USA allies, will continue to abide by the deal even if Trump chooses not to certify Iran's compliance, something which has been confirmed eight times by the global Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Deutch said the danger of walking away from the agreement is that those expiration dates "would have effectively dropped from a decade to a day" because Iran would be freed of its obligations under the deal.

Even so, some experts told CNBC that decertification will undermine the global deal and encourage hardliners in Tehran to push for nuclear weapons.

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy today urged the president not to decertify the Iran nuclear deal.

Who says they are not holding up their end of the deal? But again, none of that is likely since the US would be essentially tearing up the agreement and taking the blame for whatever comes next. Many Democrats believe that is more likely to happen if Congress does not act to make changes to the existing agreement.
