Signatories react after Iran’s warning shot on nuclear deal

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said on Wednesday that the deal — officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — should be fully implemented. He also said that all sides to the JCPOA had a responsibility to ensure the implementation of the multilateral agreement. The remarks came shortly after Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani announced the suspension of some of the country’s commitments under the JCPOA on Tuesday, precisely a year after it was unilaterally abandoned by Washington. Iran has ever since been warning that in order for it to continue to stay in the deal, other parties have to work to offset any negative impacts caused by America’s withdrawal. That has not happened in practice, Tehran argues. In his Wednesday speech, which was broadcast live on national television, President Rouhani said that Iran would stop exporting excess uranium and heavy water for a 60-day period, during which time the remaining signatories would have to honor their promises and ensure that Iran is no more deprived of the economic benefits that it was promised under the deal. The Iranian president said Iran had exercised “strategic patience” since Washington’s unilateral exit from the deal in May 2018, adding that the country would now take a new approach that would nevertheless remain based on dialog and the 2015 deal itself. “Today, we do not want to withdraw from the JCPOA,” he said. “All the people of the world should know that today is not the end of the JCPOA; it is a new step within the framework of the JCPOA.” France Later on Wednesday, French Defense Minister Florence Parly said that Paris, London, and Berlin — the three European signatories to the deal — were doing all they could to keep the agreement alive. She told BFM TV that nothing would be worse than Iran withdrawing from the deal, warning that if Tehran were to violate its commitments, the question of triggering a mechanism that could lead to sanctions would be on the table. President Rouhani already said in his speech that if the remaining parties to the deal took Iran’s suspension of some of its commitments — which has been envisaged under the agreement itself — as a pretext to take Iran’s case to the United Nations Security Council, a “very decisive response” would await them. Russia Separately, the Kremlin has said that Iran’s move to suspend some of its commitments had been provoked by external pressure on the country. “President (Putin) has repeatedly spoken of the consequences of unthought-out steps regarding Iran and by that I mean the decision taken by Washington. Now we are seeing those consequences are starting to happen,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call, apparently referring to the US decision to quit and impose sanctions on Iran. President Donald Trump, who pulled the US out of the Iran deal, has also initiated a campaign of “maximum pressure” against the Islamic Republic, re-imposing sanctions against the country and attempting to sabotage foreign business with it.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
