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.

White House press secretaries try their best to avoid answering questions without looking evasive. The Obama administration, despite pledges to be more open, is no different. Just Google the words "Robert Gibbs Dodges Question" and you will get a host of different YouTube moments. Jay Carney was so deft at not offering answers that Yahoo started calculating all his different forms of avoidance. The site stopped collecting them when it had 9,486 examples in 1 ...

A Former Obama Aide's Revealing 'Rolling Stone' Article

Aug 9 2014 3:02pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Reid Cherlin used to work for The Obama Administration. After the election of the new President in 2008, he worked in the Press Secretary's Office as one of its spokespeople. He left the gig a couple of years later. In a new piece for Rolling Stone magazine, he recounts his experiences from the inside. It has to be read to be believed. You see, Mr. Cherlin, as he readily admits in the middle of paragraph seven, is an unabashed Obama fan: I'm biased in that I think Obama is righ ...
