Reports detail Mossad raid on Iranian nuclear documents

The Iran Nuke deal or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action was inked on July 14, 2015 between Iran and five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, the United States and also Germany and the European Union.

According to Lavrov, the decision particularly concerns small and medium-sized companies.

PTI quoted amid concerns over the import of oil from Iran following U.S. sanctions, India as saying that whatever is mandated to be done in its national interest will be done.

"Everyone agrees that this [US sanctions - Ed.] is an absolutely illegal and unacceptable policy, but, of course, this can hardly be changed and there will be enough struggle in trade, economic and political spheres", the minister said.

The mission resulted in Israel obtaining documents suggesting Iran defied the spirit of its 2015 accord on its nuclear program with the United States, European powers, Russian Federation and China.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the spokesman referred to the package of proposals offered by Europe over the Iran nuclear deal.

Jaguar escapes at New Orleans zoo, kills 6 animals
An investigation is ongoing and will continue until officials are able to determine just how the jaguar escaped its habitat. Zoo officials said they will not put the jaguar down under any circumstance. 'Today is a hard day for the Audubon family'.

"It explains why the (nuclear deal) to us is worse than nothing, because it leaves key parts of the nuclear program unaddressed", the official said. "We've told our counterparts that we expect them to enforce the sanctions, but if there are specific situations, we're open to listening".

The plea came as European leaders scrambled to save the hard-fought deal signed between Iran and world powers in 2015 under which Tehran agreed to limit its nuclear capacities in exchange for relief from crippling economic sanctions. India is yet to take a call on complying with the USA sanctions on Iran. Last week, Iran's Deputy Ambassador and Charge d'Affaires Massoud Rezvanian Rahaghi, during an address at an event, cautioned New Delhi that it will stand to lose "special privileges" if it cuts import of Iranian oil following United States sanctions.

"We're not making any commitments", Mnuchin said.

Experts who specialize in sanctions-related laws said the merits of the Iranian lawsuit might be weak, partly because of what they called Iran's own transgressions of the 1955 treaty.

"Views were (also) exchanged on regional and worldwide issues of mutual interest, including the efforts being made by various parties to address issues that have arisen over the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action", an MEA statement said.

"I strongly believe that if the government takes the necessary measures, it will be able to overcome problems", Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said. In fact, a statement was made by the US State Department that they would like to get in touch with or they are prepared to engage in discussions with various countries in the matter.
