London, 24 Aug - Nikki Haley, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, announced on Tuesday, August 22, that the US wants to know if the United Nations’ Atomic Watchdog is planning to inspect Iran’s military sites to verify that the Iranian Regime is in compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal.

Haley, who met with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials in Vienna on Wednesday, asked the question as part of the Donald Trump administration's review of the agreement between Iran, the US, and five other world powers.

The deal, agreed by President Obama, lifted most sanctions against the Iranian Regime in an effort to curb their nuclear weapons programme but has not worked as well as expected.

London, 24 Aug - The Iranian Regime has threatened to resume its nuclear programme if the US imposes any further sanctions against them and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps have continued to harass the US Navy in the Persian Gulf, so the 2015 nuclear agreement is looking more and more like a failure by the day.

Donald Trump has already accused the Regime of violating the spirit of the Joint Comprehen¬sive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which lifted sanctions against Iran in favour of curbing their nuclear weapons programme, and the heated exchanges may well lead to a new nuclear-oriented conflict.

London, 21 Aug - The 2015 nuclear agreement has failed to solve Iran’s economic problems and even allowed the US to strengthen sanctions again the Regime, according to Iranian economists.

Ibrahim Razzaghi, an Iranian economist, spoke to the state-run Basij Rouz news agency about the recalling the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) contract and its consequences on Friday August 18, and called the Regime’s response to US sanctions “insignificant.”

He said: “One of the largest banking systems is in the United States, which is capable of sanctioning even the Iranian domestic banks under the new agreements such as the FATF.”

London, 22 Aug - Billions of dollars in investments could stop the Iranian Regime from feeling the true affects of the sanctions imposed by the Donald Trump administration.

Although it has not been quite the boon that the Iranian Regime hoped for, the 2015 nuclear deal has unlocked billions of dollars in investments from companies across the globe.

These investments, listed below, will only help the mullah’s Regime to overcome and withstand the sanctions that the US has levied against them for their ballistic missile programme, support for terrorism, and human rights abuses.

London, 21 Aug - The pro-Iran Lobby in the US has warned against conflating the Iranian and North Korean regimes, claiming that Iran does not have access to nuclear weapons.

Reza Marashi of the National Iranian American Council. (NIAC) recently wrote: “First, conflating Pyongyang and Tehran is troublesome for an obvious reason: One has the bomb, and the other does not.”

However, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told Iranian lawmakers last week, if Iran walked away from the 2015 nuclear deal it could restart its nuclear programme in mere hours and have access to a bomb in little time.
