Iran, Israel play down prospects they'll go to war over Syria

Iran, Israel play down prospects they'll go to war over Syria

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday Iran's atomic agency was ready with "expected and unexpected" reactions if the United States pulls out of a multinational nuclear deal, as U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to do. Trump campaigned partially on his strong opposition to the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran signed by his predecessor Barack Obama.

Zarif on the CBS program also discussed possible negotiations with the United States about possible release of some Americans being detained there.

"Whether other things can be done during those 45 days.is a hypothetical question that needs to be addressed at that time", said Zarif. "As President Trump said, we can not live without USA support for two weeks", Zarif said. All six other signatories have rejected any changes in the document, although Britain, France and Germany have said they share USA concerns and are negotiating separate agreements with Washington they hope will address Trump's demands. "But whatever that decision will be, it won't be very pleasant to the United States".

But European negotiators fear President Trump may rip up the deal regardless.

"That's a very unsafe message to send to people of Iran but also to the people of the world - that you should never come to an agreement with the United States because at the end of the day the operating principle of the United States is 'what's mine is mine, what's yours is negotiable, '" he said. In recent weeks, Iranian officials have said that in the absence of the deal, they would feel free to install and operate thousands of new uranium centrifuges that could, in theory, produce weapons-grade material.

Israel has savaged the deal and encouraged a US review, but Katz appeared to acknowledge the outcome could be costly.

That means Khris Middleton , who topped Milwaukee in points (23), rebounds (eight) and assists (seven), leading the way again. Prunty praised Maker's "energy" and "activity", after the 21-year-old played only a minute during the first two games.

"You do not engage in negotiations by exercising disrespect for a country, for its people, for its government", he said.

"America below the Trump administration has completed all the things it might to forestall Iran from benefiting from this settlement", Zarif charged.

Currently, five Americans are being held in Iran, including 81-year old Baquer Namazi, who is in failing health. The day we will finish this war against ISIS, if we leave, definitely and totally, even from a political point of view, we will leave the floor to the Iranian regime, Bashar al-Assad and his guys, and they will prepare the new war. The source added that retaliation would likely take the form of direct confrontation between Israel and Iran, rather than via regional proxies such as the Lebanese Hezbollah group.

Trump says the current restrictions aren't tough enough on Iran's ballistic missiles development and expansionist activities in the region.

Other proposals being floated in the Iranian parliament, Zarif said, involved more "drastic" measures - though he would not specify what those entailed.

"I do think if nothing changes with the three European members we're dealing with right now on a framework", Corker said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday, "I do think he will move away from the agreement on May 12".
