UK urges Iran not to take 'further' steps after Tehran's reaction to US pressure

Mark Field, the junior minister responsible for Middle East affairs at Britain’s Foreign Office, called Tehran's move “unwelcome,” while addressing the British parliament on Wednesday. Field said the UK had no plan to swiftly reciprocate Iran’s decision, urging Tehran "not to take further escalatory steps." “Today’s announcement from Tehran is ... an unwelcome step,” Field told the British parliament, adding, “We are not at this stage talking about re-imposing sanctions, but one has to remember that they were of course lifted in exchange for the nuclear restrictions ... Should Iran cease meeting its nuclear commitments, there would of course be consequences.” The comments came hours after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani sent letters to ambassadors of signatories to the JCPOA in Tehran, informing them that Iran will no longer sell its excess enriched uranium and heavy water, as demanded by the nuclear deal. Rouhani also set a 60-day deadline for the parties to either change the terms of the agreement, which has suffered as a result of a unilateral decision by the United States to withdraw from the agreement, or face the prospect of Iran resuming its uranium enrichment program. Iran has consistently criticized the UK, France and Germany for not doing enough to save the Joint Compressive Plan of Action so that Iran could enjoy its economic benefits. France also said on Wednesday that it wanted to keep the nuclear deal alive, a promise repeatedly echoed by French officials since last May when US President Donald Trump pulled out of the JCPOA. French Defense Minister Florence Parly has also acknowledged Iran's respect for the deal so far, yet suggesting the possibility of imposing sanctions on Tehran. “This is probably one of the things that will be examined. There are no sanctions today from Europe because Iran has so far always respected the commitments it has taken,” Parly said in a radio interview, adding, “If these commitments were not respected, naturally this question would be asked.” A spokesman for the German government also urged Tehran not to take any aggressive step in relation to the JCPOA, saying Berlin would fully stick to its commitments as long as Iran does the same.

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
