US Presses EU on Iran Missiles

A senior US diplomat said his country would like to see European countries press Iran over its missile program so that US President Donald Trump can be convinced to continue waiving Iran sanctions lifted under the historic 2015 nuclear deal.  Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan said the Trump administration continues looking to correct what he called the "flaws" in the Iran deal, adding that "the US is in talks with its European allies about reining in Iran's missile program and regional influence, with results expected by May 12," Fars News Agency reported.   May 12 is the date when Trump is expected to announce his decision on whether he would continue to waive the sanctions. He has previously vowed he would not do so unless the deal is fixed. Sullivan said Washington was seeking "a commitment that we can credibly show to the president [that] we're making progress to address" perceived shortcomings in the nuclear deal and to counter Iran's non-nuclear activities. Iran has always insisted its missile program is for defensive purposes and is non-negotiable.
