Trump Tells Netanyahu Europe Opposed to Amendment Demands On Iran Deal


US President Donald Trump reportedly told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a closed-door meeting at the White House last week that Washington would not show any flexibility on its demands for amending the Iran nuclear accord in negotiations with European co-signatories.

"If the Europeans and others manage to keep the deal in place without triggering a major transatlantic rift, the door would be left open for the United States to re-join the agreement at a future time".

Votel, head of the U.S. Central Command, told lawmakers that he agreed with other top Pentagon figures, including Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford, who also have backed the landmark nuclear agreement. But make no mistake about it: This is their last chance. "Unless the Iran nuclear deal is fixed in the coming months, the United States of America will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal immediately", Pence told the packed convention hall in Washington, DC.

"If I have a message for you today, it is a very simple one: We must stop Iran, we will stop Iran", he said.
