Iran Sticks To Key Limits Of Nuclear Deal - U.N. Watchdog Report

VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran has remained within the main limits on its nuclear activity set by its 2015 deal with six world powers, the U.N. atomic watchdog said in its first report since U.S. President Donald Trump decertified Iranian compliance with the terms.

Iran undertook to curb its uranium enrichment programme in return for relief from international sanctions that crippled its economy, and U.N. nuclear inspectors have repeatedly verified Tehran's adherence to the key aspects of the accord.

Trump has called the agreement between Iran, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the European Union "the worst deal ever" and he disavowed Iran's compliance last month. His decision did not constitute a U.S. exit from the accord but raised concern about its staying power.

Trump's move, at odds with the commitment of the other parties to the deal, meant the U.S. Congress must decide by mid-December whether to reimpose economic sanctions lifted under the accord, reached under his predecessor Barack Obama.

If Congress reimposes the sanctions, the United States would in effect be in violation of the deal and it would likely fall apart. If lawmakers do nothing, the deal remains in place.

1. Iran is behaving themselves

How do we know?

They told us so.

Iran has never adhered to an agreement in their history and they never will. Their objective is death to Israel and the US.

3. 'In this treaty between the U.S. Government and the Sioux Nation,

the United States recognizes the Black Hills as part of the Great Sioux Reservation, set aside for exclusive use by the Sioux people...' (Paraphrasing Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868)

The United States government, and the American people who give that government its authority, have no great record of keeping their agreements, either...

I don't believe we deserve to be trusted.

4. Are you saying Iran should rain down nuclear missiles on our heads?

Because that is what their goal is.

5. I am saying that this country has no standing to charge that any other country

can't be trusted to honor its treaty obligations---

because we can't be trusted, either.

6. We're not talking about trusting them to throw a parade

We're talking about their desire to turn your bones into dust.

2. I remember when they said Iran had no nuclear program.

Why should we believe them now?
