United States prolongs sanctions against Iran

Netanyahu warns of N arms race in West Asia

Trump told Netanyahu US will withdraw from Iran deal if demands aren't met: report

US President Donald Trump reportedly told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a closed-door meeting at the White House last week that Washington would not show any flexibility on its demands for amending the Iran nuclear accord in negotiations with European co-signatories.

During the meeting, the U.S. president allegedly said that until now, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, the three European Union signatories to the deal, only proposed "cosmetic changes" that he did not find satisfactory, the Axios news website reported.

SBI reduces charges for non-maintenance of AMB
The State Bank of India has reduced charges for non-maintenance of Average Monthly Balance (AVB) from Rs 50 to Rs 15. The bank had subsequently lowered the AMB, following criticism from the customers.

Trump is demanding "significant changes" to the Iran deal, not just additional agreements between the US and the European nations, and said he would pull out of the deal if those changes aren't made, Israeli officials told Axios. However, he has repeatedly waived sanctions against Tehran that were lifted as part of the Obama-era deal, though he has also warned he will not continue to do so going forward.

US President Donald Trump has extended the national emergency with respect to Iran that was declared on March 15, 1995, according to his letter to the US House of Representatives speaker and the Senate President.

Fresh off talks with Trump, Netanyahu vowed in a barnstorming speech at the AIPAC conference in Washington that Israel would never allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon. "He has made clear that he too will never accept a nuclear-armed Iran, and I salute President Trump on this".

Trump set May 12 as the deadline for reaching an agreement on how to change the Iran deal with the three European countries.
