Blacklist move not violation of n-deal with Iran: US

Dec 13 2013, 8:24pm CST | by

Washington, Dec 14 (IANS) The White House Friday defended the move of blacklisting additional companies and people under existing sanctions, saying it does not violate an interim nuclear agreement reached between world powers and Iran last month.

Washington, Dec 14 — The White House Friday defended the move of blacklisting additional companies and people under existing sanctions, saying it does not violate an interim nuclear agreement reached between world powers and Iran last month.

The statement came a day after the US targetted additional entities that are suspected of evading earlier sanctions against Iran and supporting its nuclear programme, Xinhua

reported.

Iran criticised the measure as "unconstructive and not in line with the Geneva deal".

"Some groups both inside and outside of the US government want to kill the Geneva deal," Iranian foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said Friday.

In a response, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said the blacklist move represented actions based on existing sanctions, adding that the Obama administration is committed to refraining from any new nuclear-related sanctions.

Separately, US State Department spokesperson Marie Harf said Washington had given Iran "notification that these new designations would be occurring", and didn't believe the move would derail its nuclear talks with Iran.

"We would continue to enforce existing sanctions, including by designating additional entities or individuals under them," she said at a press conference.

Iran's expert-level nuclear negotiating team halted talks with the representatives of world powers in Vienna to return home for further consultations. The talks, which started Monday, were designed to work out the details of the landmark November deal.

In November, the P5+1 group, namely the US, Britain, France, Russia, China plus Germany, struck a deal with Iran in Geneva, in which Iran agreed to freeze part of its nuclear programme in exchange for limited ease of sanctions which have hurt its economy.

6 Times Obama Declared Crisis, Then Did Nothing

Oct 20 2014 1:37pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Last week, President Obama finally began taking Ebola seriously – so seriously that he cancelled a campaign trip in order to hold an emergency meeting on Ebola. He then appointed a new Ebola czar, Ron Klain, whose stellar qualifications for handling a possible Ebola outbreak include flacking for Janet Reno, Al Gore, and Joe Biden. Finally, Obama held another Ebola meeting after going golfing. Klain skipped the meeting. It was the second such meeting Klain skipped. Don’t worry. The Obama adm ...

On Thursday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” former White House press secretary Jay Carney, now a CNN contributor, warned that his party is facing a bad election year with the midterm elections under a month away. “I think the Democratic candidates have to sort of thread this needle very carefully because it is true that when you have an unpopular president of your party, you don’t want to be associated with him.

Why the Obama Administration is Unable to Defend Itself on the Issue of a Residual Force in Iraq

Oct 3 2014 2:08pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Could the rise of ISIS in Iraq have been prevented if the U.S. had left troops in the country in 2011? That question has been a subject of debate in Washington for years. So why do members of the Obama administration seem so utterly unprepared to discuss it? Last night State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki agreed to discuss it with Megyn Kelly and her apparent lack of preparation cost her. The interview was a bloodbath. Not the kind of fake victory that John Oliver a ...
