Israel says Iran lied on nuclear arms, pressures U.S. to scrap deal

It looks like a dilapidated warehouse.

Pompeo, a former Central Intelligence Agency chief and congressman, also joined Netanyahu in lashing out at Iran on Sunday. He also spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the findings.

He said the uncovered filed included "incriminating" documents, charts, blueprints, photos and videos.

During a news conference with the president of Nigeria on Monday, Trump declared that Netanyahu's performance demonstrates that he has "been 100 percent right" in his criticism of the nuclear accord. Iran agreed to reduce its uranium stockpile in return for worldwide sanctions being lifted.

Israel claimed it had evidence showing Iran covertly sought nuclear weapons - an accusation rejected by Iran. That is not acceptable.

In either case, Trump says he won't accept anything less than "full desensitization". President Trump says he'll decide whether to withdraw from the deal within 12 days.

Iran responded that Israel's revelations were a "childish" stunt to influence President Donald Trump's decision on whether to remain in the nuclear deal, which he is due to make by 12 May.

"BREAKING: The boy who can't stop crying wolf is at it again". "Undeterred by cartoon fiasco at UNGA", Zarif wrote.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

"Iran was to come clean to the IAEA, but it denied the existence of a coordinated military nuclear program", Netanyahu said, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency. "But Trump's impetuousness to celebrate blew the cover", he added.

Landau then pointed out that the IAEA was never allowed to interview Dr. Mohsen Farkhrizadeh, the scientist who lead Iran's Project Amad program to develop nuclear scientists continued to lead the regime's efforts at nuclear development under the guise of "scientific knowhow".

It also has complained the nuclear deal does not do enough to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear-weapons capability, and expressed concerns about Iran's involvement in the civil war in neighboring Syria.

"I'm not telling you what I'm doing but a lot of people think they know", the president said. It fits a pattern: Mr Trump's cancellation of the trans-Pacific trade deal, the USA withdrawal from the climate pact, the largely unsuccessful assault on "Obamacare", and now the attack on the Iran nuclear deal. "In seven years, that deal will have expired and Iran is free to go ahead and create nuclear weapons".

"He presented a smoking bomb", Ron Dermer told Bret Baier on "Special Report". The Prime Minister intends to speak to the leaders of Great Britain and China "forthwith", his office said.

That's because Trump has long proclaimed the Iran accord as "the worst ever".

An understanding that Iran was determined to build nuclear weapons is the very reason that the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany (known as the P5+1) strove to fashion a nuclear deal with Iran in the first place.

At the White House, Mr. Trump said he was keeping his options open.
