INU - The future of the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is uncertain. Many are warning that US President Trump’s threats to not re-certify Iranian compliance next month will unravel a deal that makes the world safer. European leaders say the deal cannot be renegotiated, and Iranian envoys agree. As well, according to administration sources, State Department officials are trying to figure out a way to delay Trump’s plan to throw out the deal, a the very least.

Next month, President of the United States Donald Trump will make a decision that will affect the future of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. He has to decide by 15th October whether to certify Iran with compliance with the nuclear agreement. If he decides not to, this means Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose crippling sanctions that were lifted when the deal was signed.

Iran has just announced that it now has a new ballistic missile - a Khorramshahr medium range one. Before its announcement, the Iranian regime published a video showing it being successfully tested. This is almost certainly going to have a bearing on US President Donald Trump’s decision about the future of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

INU - On Friday, it was widely reported that the Islamic Republic of Iran had publicly unveiled a new domestically-produced missile at a military parade commemorating the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War. CNN quoted Iranian outlets close to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as saying that the Khorramshahr missile has an effective range of 1,250 miles and is capable of carrying multiple warheads. However, as the New York Times notes, military experts have suggested that the multiple-warhead claim refers only to relatively small cluster bombs and not to larger payloads such as nuclear warheads, if those claims are true at all.

INU - In his first speech at the United Nations General Assembly, US President Trump called the Iranian people the main victims of, and biggest threat to, their regime’s survival.

Trump said that, “The longest suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are, in fact, its own people.” He went on to criticize the Iranian government for using the country’s resources and oil revenues to support terrorism in the Middle East instead of improving people’s lives.

Yesterday, the Trump administration said that it is deciding whether the controversial 2015 nuclear deal is actually working with or against the country’s security interests, despite Iran’s confidence that the US would not pull out. On the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said to reporters that Trump will not follow through with his tough talk. He said: “We don’t think Trump will walk out of the deal despite (his) rhetoric and propaganda.”
