NCRI - The US has devised a plan to improve the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal over time with the help of Germany, France and Britain, in exchange for the US not withdrawing from the pack and renewing sanctions relief in May.

NCRI - In the coming months, the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal will come under a great deal of scrutiny in the US as the deadline for Donald Trump’s ultimation draws closer.
Last month, Trump said that if the flaws with the nuclear deal (also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action of JCPOA) are not fixed by May then he will withdraw the US from the deal.
NCRI - US Senators Todd Young (R-IN) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) took charge of a letter that was sent to President Donald Trump. They called for Trump to consider further sanctions on Iran given its ongoing ballistic missile program.
NCRI - South Korea recently stopped a proposed investment $1.6 billion deal with the Iranian Regime, thanks to Saudi Arabia's influence.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime is becoming increasing scared of Donald Trump’s words and actions regarding the future of the nuclear deal and of Europe lack of opposition to Trump.
Last week, Trump gave the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) one last chance, announcing that if the deal had not been sufficiently amended by May, he would withdraw the US from it.
Trump Warns This Might Be Final Iran Deal Waiver, President Trump renewed the Iran nuclear deal, but said that this will be the last time. The deal, which must be renewed every 120 days, waives key sanctions the US lifted as part of the deal.
NCRI - Late last week, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley raised the issue that the Iranian Regime was gifting ballistic missiles to Yemen’s Houthi militias but that’s far from the only present the Iranian Regime is handing out.
They are also sending large amounts of money to North Korea in exchange for missile technology or material, which is incredibly “problematic” according to Emily Landau, a senior research fellow at the Israeli-based Institute for National Security Studies and head of the Arms Control and Regional Security Programme.
It is widely agreed that Pyongyang has dramatically deepened its partnership with Tehran's 'Axis of Resistance.’ This according to the 16 agency US Intelligence Community as well as some Asian powers. All are said to believe that the DRNK-IROI partnership seeks the ability to launch nuclear weapons into their perceived enemies. Another recent report has it that North Korea has been benefiting from technical assistance from Russia and Pakistan and sharing some of it with Iran while committing about 25 percent of North Korea’s entire gross domestic product to its nuclear weapons program and much of that to missiles.
NCRI - Yukiya Amano, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director, is expected to meet with United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, on Thursday in New York. It is believed that the Trump administration's next move on Iran is at stake.
After the US President de-certified Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal last month, it passed to Congress to determine whether or not the U.S. actually withdraws from the agreement.
Trump has referred to the 2015 nuclear deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as "an embarrassment."
