NCRI - An Iranian economist regarding the U.S. Congressional resolution to strengthen the sanctions against the Iranian regime, said: “One of the largest banking systems is in the United States, which is capable of sanctioning even the Iranian domestic banks under the new agreements such as the FATF.”
NCRI - A state-owned newspaper affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) exposed some of the Iranian regime’s worries about JCPOA impasse.
In an article titled “Americans Point of View on the nature and Spirit of JCPOA," the newspaper wrote on 15 August 2017: “Some media outlets and political news circles in the West predict the Trump administration is set to stay out of the nuclear deal. But what's important here is that the President of the United States intends to break up the deal and introduce Iran as a factor in the failure of JCPOA. This is a delicate point that the Foreign Minister of our country has explicitly drawn to public attention a while ago.”
NCRI - On 13 August 2017, the Iranian regime's parliament in a panic and dramatic reaction show, adopted a new plan to confront the US sanctions against the regime.
The measure, on the one hand, reveals the fear and vulnerability of the religious fascism ruling Iran to the new U.S. sanctions, in particular the imposition of anti-terrorist sanctions against the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), and on the other hand, shows that all the gangs of this regime have a common interest both in suppression and violation of human rights as well as in export of terrorism and warmongering in the region and are unable to get away from it.
NCRI - Iran state-run media reported that Ghadir Investment Company succeeded in signing an investment agreement with the Russia's Zarubazhnaft and the Turkey’s Unit International Companies.
According to Shana, Iran regime's Ministry of Oil news agency, based on an agreement signed in Moscow on Monday August 4, the three companies will invest in joint oil and gas projects inside and outside Iran.
NCRI - On Saturday, Ed Royce, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman, criticized the Iran nuclear deal, just days before President Trump will decide whether or not Tehran is complying with it. Royce said, “The Iranian regime has accelerated its illicit ballistic missile program, and there have been multiple reports of Iran not living up to the agreement. Just this past week, we learned German intelligence caught Iran trying to buy illegal nuclear weapons technology.” He added, “If Iran has not materially breached the agreement, it’s only because the JCPOA is so deeply flawed. It allowed Iran to keep thousands of nuclear centrifuges spinning and, even without cheating, keep a path to a nuclear weapon.”
NCRI - The Iranian Regime is seeking nuclear weapons technology according to German intelligence released over the past two months.
The evidence shows that the Iranian Regime’s continued pursuit of nuclear weapons and advanced missile technology is in direct defiance of both the 2015 nuclear deal and UN resolutions.
NCRI - On Tuesday, the Iranian opposition coalition the National Council of Resistance of Iran held a press conference at its Washington DC office to present new information about missile development and testing in the Islamic Republic of Iran. NCRI officials reported that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei had ordered relevant institutions to accelerate missile activities in the aftermath of the nuclear agreement that went into effect in January of last year.
Information on four of the most important Iranian regime’s missile centers, including one linked to the nuclear program, to be revealed.
A dozen of hitherto-unknown centers involved in various aspects of production, testing and launching of ballistic missiles will be exposed.
NCRI - Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) described the new sanctions approved by the United Nations Senate Foreign Relations Committee against Iran’s human rights violations, support for terrorism and ballistic missile program as the “most serious and comprehensive US sanctions bill” against Tehran and “Congress act of killing the JCPOA.” JCPOA is the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or “Iran Nuclear Deal”.
