Iran 'not living up to the spirit' of nuclear deal, despite compliance

Share

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Thursday the United States should meet its own obligations agreed in a landmark nuclear deal in 2015 rather than making accusations against the Islamic Republic.

"The Trump administration has no intention of passing the buck to a future administration on Iran".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declared the Iran nuclear deal a failure on Wednesday but left open the possibility the Trump administration will uphold it nonetheless.

Despite the sanctions relief, Iran remains on the State Department's list of state sponsors of terrorism for its support of anti-Israel groups and is still subject to non-nuclear sanctions, including for alleged human rights abuses and for its backing of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government. The letter marks the first time the White House has certified Iran's compliance with the deal, under which a review to Congress is required by the administration every 90 days.

The top American diplomat sought to reinforce the notion that the U.S.is aggressively countering Iran's destabilizing behavior throughout the Middle East, even though President Donald Trump so far has not pulled out of the deal.

Then-National Security Advisor Mike Flynn announced soon after Trump took office that "as of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice", but didn't elaborate on what that meant.

Iran's continued support for terror since the implementation of the nuclear deal has been a major concern for the Trump administration, the Free Beacon reported Wednesday.

US President Donald Trump has directed a National Security Council-led inter-agency review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the deal nuclear negotiated by former president Barack Obama, that will evaluate whether suspension of sanctions related to Iran pursuant to the pact is vital to the national security interests, he said. But neither Iran nor the other world powers that negotiated the agreement have any interest in re-opening the deal, and USA companies stand to lose billions if the deal is scuttled.

The Trump administration's inter-agency review of policy toward Iran will examine whether the lifting of sanctions against Tehran is in the USA national security interests.
