STOCKHOLM (AP) — Iran's foreign minister says the nuclear deal reached last year with world powers can't be renegotiated despite Republican presidential contender Donald Trump's pledge to do so if elected.
After a lecture in Stockholm on Wednesday, Mohammad Javad Zarif said the deal "is not an Iran-U.S. agreement for the Republican front-runner or anybody else to renegotiate. It's an international understanding annexed to a Security Council resolution."


Trump has denounced the deal and said he'd seek to renegotiate it if elected president. Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has said she supports the agreement to rein in Iran's nuclear program, which was endorsed by the U.N. Security Council.

It's not possible "to renegotiate a text that is annexed" to such a resolution, Zarif said.

Ummm... Yeaa Donald, you seem to be not having so much luck with international cooperation in many of your policy positions. First off good luck with actually getting Iran to sit down and negotiate this, and second off good luck with getting the international community behind this, because after-all this deal was internationally struck among the P5+1 partners.

Of course Iran won't want to renegotiate a nuclear deal. They like this one because it gives them everything they want.

It hardly matters what Trump's or Iran's position is. If push comes to shove it will be between sanctions or renegotiation. But I doubt it will get that far as the deal itself was not exclusively between the US and Iran in scope. As useless as they are it will take UN effort.

Lol it's Iran...What's to negotiate? They're already making a mockery of our idiot in chief. No negotiating with them or their proxy terrorists.

You fail to understand the concept between not wanting to renegotiate a deal and the fact that it is impossible to renegotiate this deal.

But please, keep on believing everything that Trump tells you.

Making a mockery by complying with every aspect of the nuclear deal, including dismantling two-thirds of their centrifuges, shipping out all of their nuclear fissile material, subjecting themselves to the most rigorous inspection regime in the world, and filling a nuclear reactor with cement?

But please, keep on believing whatever Trump tells you.

They are complying because it's everything they want! LOL. It's not a 'deal'. It's our idiot in chief giving them exactly what they want. Major difference. And it doesn't take Trump to call Obama an idiot. I've been saying it since 2008.

Wait! They don't even know the terms of the renegotiation yet. We were going to send small kitchen appliances as part of the new deal.

Naturally, the corollary to their position is that we don't have to honor our commitments within the agreement either. They want to develop missile technology, in spite of the fact that the American public was told they would not be permitted to do so. Either our administration has lied to us, which wouldn't be anything unusual with this administration, or Iran is violating the agreement. Either way, the next president won't be held to the terms of that agreement anyway.

It's called an agreement. I give you something in exchange for something else.

Do you honestly believe that they want to destroy their centrifuges, to fill a nuclear reactor with cement, subjecting themselves to the most invasive inspection regime in the world, and to ship out all of their nuclear fissile material?

They WANT to do all of that?

The nuclear agreement does not cover missile technology.

And so far they're behind on their deal with no punishment or isolation of the IRP.

You have proof they did any of that?

From a POTUS who constantly lies.

Ok fair enough. Not technically yet, but I find that there's no way they'll have that report by August. IRP took Iraq 2 years (if my memory serves correctly). By then, Saddam was able to produce more.

I tried googling iran irp sanction, but got zero results. If you have any source to even the notion that they (or anyone) has to complete an IRP by August, I would appreciate it.

You believe thieves and liars.

You're calling the NY Times thieves and liars?

How about CNN, The Guardian, Politico, or the IAEA?

Or wait...you want me to go to Iran and use my eyes personally to verify it? Oh wait, you won't believe me either. How about this...I'll pay for you to go to Iran and verify the claims made by these organizations.

Yep... all of them.

I would believe you if you saw it with your own eyes. Trouble is, you can't because it's not happening.

The U.S. is not bound by any international agreement it no longer chooses to be bound by. Any treaty we make can be abrogated, and less binding agreements like this one are easier yet to dissolve. The correct response to the jihadist regime in Tehran would have been an ultimatum, years ago, to disband its nuclear weapons program completely and then prove that it had. This demand could have been emphasized by moving into position, outside the Gulf, a naval force strong enough to impose a remote blockade of Iranian ports that would have ruined Iran's economy within months. It could have been further emphasized by making clear that might be only a first step, and that if the facilities still were not removed, U.S. forces would remove them from the air. To allow that regime to get atom bombs, considering the thousands of jihadists it could call on to carry out clandestine nuclear attacks on cities, would endanger the peace of the whole civilized world.
