Trump will QUIT nuclear deal unless flaws are fixed — IRAN'S LAST CHANCE Trump will QUIT nuclear deal unless flaws are fixed — IRAN'S LAST CHANCE

Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said Trump's aggressive stance on the deal and Iran generally have also violated the commitment to "refrain from any policy specifically meant to directly and adversely affect the normalisation of trade and economic relations with Iran" in the accord.

However on Friday, the United States imposed sanctions on 14 individuals and entities, including Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani, the head of the judiciary, with the treasury department arguing that Larijani was responsible for ordering, controlling, or otherwise directing the commission of serious human rights abuses against Iranians.

In particular, Iran said the placing of judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani on the sanctions list "crossed all red lines of conduct in the global community. and the government of the United States will bear responsibility for all the consequences of this hostile move".

I am waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal.

But I think they were able to get him to sort of grudgingly agree, provided, as he said today, this is the last time he's willing to do it.

Aides said the President will waive sanctions for the final time, Reuters reported, pointing out that if the deal is not strengthened with a follow-up agreement in 120 days, the U.S.

"This is the last time he'll issue waivers unless they reach an agreement", senior White House officials said, according to the BBC.

"Iran strongly announces that it will make no measure beyond its Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) commitments and will make no changes in the nuclear deal neither now nor in the future", the statement said.

Implementation of the deal hasn't been derailed, but will face some new complicating factors, said the minister.

Iran Rejects Trump Demand For Renegotiation Of Nuclear Deal
He did not set a deadline, but under USA law the president is required to waive sanctions every four months. Trump said he is open to working with Congress on bipartisan legislation regarding Iran.

"This could be one of Washington's big foreign policy mistakes", he added. Russian Federation and China are adamantly opposed to renegotiating the deal, as is Iran. The European Union said it had taken note of Mr Trump's decision and would assess its implications.

Trump decided on Friday to continue to waive economic sanctions related to the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, leaving the deal intact for now, but issued new sanctions against 14 people and entities involved with the country's ballistic missile programs and a crackdown on government protesters.

The next deadline for Trump to waive sanctions falls on Friday.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had earlier said on Twitter that Trump's decision undermined the multilateral agreement. The administration accuses Larijani of being responsible for the violent crackdown on dissidents in Iran during recent protests.

Trump has repeatedly threatened to tear up what he has described as "the worst deal ever negotiated". It is also wants to address Iran's ballistic missile programme. "It's going to be complicated to save the deal after this", said one European diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The president wants Congress to modify a law that reviews USA participation in the nuclear deal to include "trigger points" that, if violated, would lead to the United States reimposing its sanctions, the official said.

"Either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw", he added. Work already has begun on this front, the official said.

Despite Donald Trump's vows to kill it, Barack Obama's Iran nuclear deal lives. If other nations fail to act during this time, I will terminate our deal with Iran.

The US president has to sign sanctions waivers every four months, while the American intelligence services monitor the Islamic Republic's compliance with the nuclear deal, signed in 2015, which rolled back crippling sanctions against Tehran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
