8:02 am
a decision in washington on reapplying sanctions the deal is working it is the living on its main goal in two main street things the iranian nuclear program in chad and actually closing the survey against the i.a.e.a. has confirmed in nine hundred forty six that iran is fully complying with the commitments made under the agreement u.s. president donald trump has repeatedly threatened to tear up the agreement which he's called the worst deal ever it was signed at a time of heightened tensions across the region. some of iran's neighbors had been talking about a possible military strike against the country. to her rounds made no secret of its arsenal of ballistic missiles but some countries including israel claimed it also had an active nuclear weapons program iran insisted its nuclear agenda was purely civilian but under the deal it agreed to end research in return for the partial lifting of sanctions allowing it to access global financial markets and crucially
8:03 am
sell its oil last summer president trump agreed to waive sanctions on iran's oil industry but things could be about to change in october he announced a new iran policy iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal i am announcing a new strategy to address the full range of iran's destructive actions trumps called for sanctions on iran's revolutionary guard and he also wants to extend time limits on the country's nuclear research and curtail its missile program he's refusing to recertify the deal unless congress passes legislation amending it but democrats say they won't back any changes not supported by european allies who insist any alterations would be in breach of the international agreement it leaves donald trump with two choices rectify the deal and keep it alive or reject it and trigger an international crisis we are discussing with the american american allies and friends that we should separate two things from each other first we want to
8:04 am
preserve the jessop usa the nuclear deal with iran because it's in our all in our interest not to develop to see that nuclear weapons are developed early iran given the strength of feeling here in europe and warnings in the u.s. itself it's likely president trunk will in fact refrain from reapplying those oil sanctions on iran but that certainly doesn't mean he's going to give up trying to change the terms of the nuclear deal. and so the uncertainty over the future of iran's nuclear program goes on nadine barber al-jazeera brussels well alan fischer has been following developments in washington and sent us this update well we know that donald trump has been meeting is national security team and undoubtedly the whole around deal is probably on the agenda we know that in the past rex tillerson who is the secretary of state h.r. mcmaster who's the national security advisor and to mattis who is the defense
8:05 am
secretary they have been suggesting that they don't want to step this deal they don't want to blow it up what the united states should do is look to ways to try and amend it while working with their international partners but there is the possibility that will be no one nuclear related sanctions and that's certainly something that treasury sector steve mission suggested when he made a surprise appearance in the white house briefing room. i am expecting new sanctions on iran we continue to look at them we've rolled them out and i think. you can expect there will be more sanctions coming now we know that donald trump speaks to a lot of people before he makes these decisions he has had from president mark or france who said the international community doesn't want to see this deal being abandoned horses for them to the israelis and the saudis and we know that donald trump tends to see these things very much in binary terms that any win for iran in any sort of level is a defeat for the united states but what people will be saying to him for to kill it
8:06 am
after the protests in iran over the last month is what we want to do is keep pressure on the iranian government and you do that with no one nuclear related sanctions rather than dismantling this whole deal if you do that and it keeps pressure on the iranian government and but if you blow up the deal then that gives them some sort of nationalistic totem to rally people around and the focus moves off them and more on the relationship with the united states and the international community and that could strengthen their position so donald trump has a big decision to make in the next twenty four hours he will listen to all sides and then donald trump being donald trump will make the decision he wants to make when he's ready to make the decision. same as a political analyst with a truman national security project she says a failure to uphold the iran deal would have consequences for years to come. it really in the long term undermines american credibility that the united states
8:07 am
presidents aren't necessarily going to honor international agreements and if our credibility is undermined our influence will likely also be undermined and so it is important that these agreements are honored i think that there are some very legitimate concerns when it comes to iran so for example one of the things that critics of the deal don't like is that the country is still able to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile system as long as it is a conventional system because iran deal really just focuses on. weapons of mass destruction on nuclear weapons and not on conventional weapons i think that's a very legitimate concern however i don't think that this strategy is cracked i think what we could do is show the iranians that we're honoring a deal in the nuclear space and then that would create an incentive for them to come to the table to potentially come up with a second deal to talk about the threat intercontinental ballistic missiles and i think that's really a broader regional concern and that's an opportunity that's potentially going to be
