Reacting to Israeli PM’ allegations, Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif tweeted, “Pres. Trump is jumping on a rehash of old allegations already dealt with by the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) to ‘nix’ the deal. How convenient. Coordinated timing of alleged intelligence revelations by the boy who cries wolf just days before May 12. But Trump’s impetuousness to celebrate blew the cover.”[/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][vc_column_text]Meanwhile, Abbas Araqchi, Iran’s deputy foreign minister said on Monday that Israeli PM is playing a “baseless childish, naïve game”. Press TV quoted him saying, “When we saw from Netanyahu was nothing but a childish and ridiculous show.” He also added that it was also a repeat of Netanyahu’s speeches in the past.

He said that Israeli PM is trying to affect US President Donald Trump’s upcoming decision about Iran nuclear deal, known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). However said that Iran does not care about Netanyahu’s allegations.

Araqchi also said that such allegations against Tehran have already been proven wrong by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Reacting to Israeli PM’s assertions, White House issued a statement saying, “The United States is aware of the information just released by Israel and continues to examine it carefully. This information provides new and compelling details about Iran’s efforts to develop missile-deliverable nuclear weapons.”

The statement further said, “These facts are consistent with what the United States has long known: Iran had a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people. The Iranian regime has shown it will use destructive weapons against its neighbors and others. Iran must never have nuclear weapons.”

US President Donald Trump applauded Israel’s announcement and said it shows he was “100% right” in criticizing the 2015 pact agreed to by former US President Barack Obama, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, France and Germany.

“In seven years, that deal will have expired and Iran is free to go ahead and create nuclear weapons. That is not acceptable. Seven years is tomorrow,” Trump said.

Meanwhile, Federica Mogherini, the chief of  EU foreign policy, says  that the “documents” presented by Israeli premier on Iran’s “secret” nuclear work fail to question Tehran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal. She has suggested that such claims should solely be assessed by the UN nuclear watchdog IAEA.

She said, “What I have seen from the first reports is that Prime Minister Netanyahu has not put into question Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA commitments. Mogherini had played important role during dialogue between Iran and P5+1 leading to the nuclear agreement.

According to AFP, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was CIA director until recently, said that Israel’s newly released package of intelligence on Iranian nuclear weapons program was “authentic and much of it was new to US experts.

Pompeo met Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday at military headquarters in Tel Aviv and was briefed on the material, which was released as he flew home. During his three day three-nation tour in the Middle East, Pompeo visited Saudi Arabia and Jordan as well.

While flying back to Washington, Pompeo told accompanying media persons on his plane, “We’ve known about this material for a while and we certainly discussed this material yesterday when we were together.”

He was quoted saying, “It’s been something that’s been in the works for a while. I know that there are people talking about these documents not being authentic. I can confirm with you, for you, that these documents are real, they are authentic.”

Since the implementation of JCPOA began in January 2016, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been consistently monitoring Iran’s compliance with its nuclear related commitments under the deal and has consistently verified Iran’s compliance.

Iran and five permanent members of UN Security Council: the US, France, Britain, Russia and China- plus Germany, known as P5+1 had signed the nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015 and started implementing the same on 16 January 2016.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

SkyWest airplane

Seems like aviation atrocities are not going to end anytime soon. Recently, a SkyWest flight got delayed for an hour after a clash broke out between two flight attendants.

Reports said the incident happened on March 12 when the flight was about to take off from Los Angeles to Houston. A video, now-deleted, was shared by a passenger, Ashley Brewer wherein a male flight attendant was seen arguing with his woman colleague after a disagreement.

Reportedly, a woman passenger requested the male flight attendant if she could exchange seats with a person in the economy to sit beside her husband during the journey. The male attendant agreed, however, his colleague refused.

This disagreement triggered the crew members to bicker about the airline’s rules and regulations. Things turned ugly when the female flight attendant decided to leave the aircraft. Further, the gate crew handled the situation and replaced both crew members.

After the incident came to light, the SkyWest flight responded to it and claimed that the airline was not aware of the situation.

The company, in a statement, said it regrets the action of its staff members and also apologised for the inconvenience. It further apologised to the passengers onboard for the delay and informed them that an internal investigation is being conducted in connection to the incident.

A few days back, as many as 30 international passengers flying from Colombo became the victims of a human error at the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru. Reports said the passengers arrived on a Sri Lankan Airlines flight UL 173 and were dropped off at the domestic arrivals bus gate and entered the domestic baggage claim.

The passengers affected were shifted immediately to the international arrivals area for immigration after the airport staff members were alerted by the authorities. The airport spokesperson called it a human error.
