Trump criticises Iran over its recent ballistic missile test


He gave no hint as to the direction Trump would take, but repeated the president's long-standing position that the deal does not address troubling non-nuclear behavior despite the hopes of those who negotiated it.

Addressing the General Assembly, however, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump's stance on the deal and called for more sanctions against Tehran.

"There is no need to renegotiate parts of the agreement because the agreement is concerning a nuclear program and as such is delivering", Mr Mogherini told reporters following a United Nations meeting of the six powers that negotiated the deal with Iran.

"How are we going to convince countries like North Korea that worldwide agreements provide them security, and in so doing make them commit to further disarmament efforts, if the only global example for such an endeavor being successful - the agreement with Iran - no longer has effect?" The deal was reached in July 2015 between Tehran and the six world powers of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.

Rouhani said Iran's 10-year agreement to purchase fuel for its nuclear reactor at Bushehr is coming to an end and it may want to produce its own enriched uranium for fuel, but "never, ever, at all nuclear weapons". "The reason behind the foolish, very ugly, insolent and disorderly speech with cowboy and gangster wording... is their anger (and) desperation", Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in reference to Trump and the USA administration.

In particular, he objects to the "sunset clause" that would see Iran resume some enrichment from 2025.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) has suggested strictly enforcing the agreement instead of scrapping it.

"That is why we talk about Iran defaulting on these expectations since those expectations have not been met". "It is not, given the evolution of the regional situation and increasing pressure that Iran is exerting on the region, and given increased activity by Iran on the ballistic level since the accord", Macron told reporters in New York Wednesday, according to Reuters.

The US went against the tide and was "the most isolated country at the United Nations over the nuclear agreement, which has been certified by the United Nations", he added. And he's not telling anyone what he's decided about America's position with the Iranian nuclear deal as it comes up for reassessment in mid-October - at least, not yet.

Royce said he believed Iran was "violating the spirit of the agreement", but he said the lifting of sanctions under the Iran deal meant the United States lost a considerable amount of leverage that went directly to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

"We can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building risky missiles", Trump said.

The agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, limits Iran's nuclear development capabilities in exchange for the easing of related sanctions.

Iran has, however, ruled out renegotiating the accord.

It would be a "great pity", he added, if the agreement were to be destroyed by Mr Trump. "The world will have lost a great opportunity", he said.

Despite the anger, Tillerson said his first encounter with Zarif had been "matter of fact". "We must not sleepwalk our way into war", he said.

"It was not an angry tone at all. I think we have a very, very good chance", he said, adding that all stake holders are working very hard on this.

The long-time Israeli leader made headlines when he warned in 2012 that the country is on the cusp of achieving a nuclear weapon, famously holding up a cartoon cutout of a bomb in a theatrical display that continues to be a hallmark of his time at the UN.
