Trump threatens Iran with increased sanctions after country exceeds uranium enrichment cap

Source: The Hill



BY BRETT SAMUELS - 07/10/19 10:39 AM EDPresident Trump on Wednesday warned that his administration would soon "substantially" increase sanctions on Iran after the country exceeded the uranium enrichment level limits laid out in the Obama-era nuclear deal.

Trump claimed that Iran had "long been secretly" enriching uranium in violation of the 2015 nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. But the U.S. and international monitoring agencies had previously found Iran was abiding by the terms of the deal.

Trump withdrew the United States from the nuclear agreement in 2018 and reimposed harsh sanctions on Iran. The accord was co-signed by France, Germany, England, Russia and China, and provided Tehran sanctions relief in exchange for limits on its nuclear program.

International inspectors and the deal’s signatories, including senior U.S. officials, had said prior to Trump's withdrawal that Iran was in compliance with the terms of the agreement. The United Nations' atomic watchdog filed a report in May that found Tehran was staying within the main restrictions of the deal.T

2. Why should they abide by an agreement to limit their production after Trump voided it in

the first place?

4. Exactly! He quit the agreement, WTF does he expect. Anyway, all they have to do is tell

him how presidential he is and how great, and he will drop all sanctions and likely share nuclear info. with them.

7. 2 things


Iran has long been secretly “enriching,” in total violation of the terrible 150 Billion Dollar deal made by John Kerry and the Obama Administration. Remember, that deal was to expire in a short number of years. Sanctions will soon be increased, substantially!

1) Trump broke the deal not Iran. They should not be held accountable for a treaty that Tump voided.

b) The deal was not set to expire in a short # of years. The 3rd line of the deal written in a large part
by Ernie Moniz said something like Iran will never build a nuclear weapon or have the technology to
make bomb grade nuclear materials.

9. He's too confused to remember he tossed the accord overboard

And still the gop plays dumb, deaf and blind.
