Hillary Clinton: Trump's 'ignorant, racist views'
The British foreign minister, Boris Johnson, said that so far no-one has come up with a better alternative. “We greatly value the JCPOA, the nuclear deal with Iran, we think it is a considerable diplomatic accomplishment,” Johnson said, stressing that “Iran is in compliance with this agreement according to the International Atomic Energy Agency.” German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Europe wanted to protect the deal “against every possible undermining decision”. Iran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France, and Germany), also known as E3+3, concluded the historic accord in July 2015 and implemented it in January 2016. Under the agreement, certain limits have been put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all nuclear-related bans against Tehran. In all of its reports since coming into force of the JCPOA, the IAEA has verified the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran as well as the Islamic Republic’s commitment to the nuclear deal. Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump was to decide on Friday whether to waive nuclear sanctions on Iran or effectively end the US participation in the nuclear agreement. Western media reported early on Friday that Trump had decided to extend Iran’s sanctions relief. In October, Trump said he would not certify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement that was negotiated under the previous administration because Tehran was “in violation of the spirit” of the accord. The Trump administration asked the US Congress to come up with a solution to address “many flaws” in the deal, such as existing sunset provisions and exclusion of Iran’s ballistic missile program. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week that Trump would be inclined to authorize another sanctions waiver if he felt that real progress was being made toward the changes he demanded in October.THE deadly flu outbreak that has killed 85 people across Britain will reach epidemic level by the end of January, the latest figures suggest.U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands Peter Hoekstra had a tense news conference Wednesday when Dutch reporters pressed him on anti-Muslim comments he made in 2015.Trump’s affinity for promoting foreign military sales has been well documented over the course of his presidency but his latest remarks have raised some eyebrows due to one glaring problem: There is no indication that the F-52 fighter jet exists.

In a statement released on Friday the United States Embassy in London said that, in 2007, a plan was developed “to finance a new embassy project through a property swap for existing U.S. government property in London. This solution allowed construction of a new chancery that meets all security standards, yet used no tax payer dollars to fund the project.”
Hoekstra made the remarks in question during a conference on terrorism hosted by the right-wing David Horowitz Freedom Center. He talked about the supposed “chaos” brought to Europe by immigrants from Islamic countries and repeated a baseless theory about so-called “no-go zones” that is popular in right-wing media.

Trump’s comments Thursday also put further scrutiny on his long-standing tendency to make racially charged remarks — including attacks on protesting black athletes and his claim that there were fine people “on both sides” after neo-Nazis rioted in Charlottesville, Va.

“Strong consensus in Brussels today,” Zarif said in a Twitter post after the meeting, Tasnim News Agency reported. Iran is complying with the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and the Iranian people have every right to all its dividends, he added. The top diplomat reiterated that any move that undermines the accord is unacceptable and that the “E3 and EU [are] fully aware that Iran’s continued compliance [is] conditioned on full compliance by the US.” The European officials who attended the meeting also underlined support for preserving the Iran nuclear deal. European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, insisted that the nuclear agreement “is working” and that it is vital to preserve it. “The deal is working, it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear program in check and under close surveillance,” Mogherini said.

CIA’s role in the 1991 coup that overthrew President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, or the U.S. invasions in 1994 and 2004. You’d have to know nothing about why the United States sponsored and took the leading role in paying for a United Nations “stabilization mission” that did little but keep a few, often unpopular, presidents in power and kill at least 10,000 people by introducing cholera to Haiti for the first time. And you’d have to not understand the U.S. role in the shambolic response to the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake — which was a mess, but possibly not in the way that you think.
