MPs: Renewal of Nuclear Waivers Indicates American Deception

There are ulterior political motives behind Washington's decision to renew sanctions waivers for Iran’s nuclear programs and the move does not signal a shift in the US approach toward Tehran, lawmakers say. 
"Extending the waivers is actually part of a political game," Mohammad Javad Jamali, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told ICANA. 
On July 31, White House National Security Adviser John Bolton announced that the United States will renew sanctions waivers for Iran’s nuclear program, which allow Russia, China and European countries to continue their civilian nuclear cooperation with Tehran, Reuters reported. 
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in early May extended five of seven sanctions waivers for 90 days, a shorter period than earlier waivers. The waivers allow work at Iran's Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, Fordow enrichment facility, Arak nuclear complex and the Tehran Research Reactor.
