Trump says Iran breaking 'spirit' of nuclear deal

As part of the worldwide deal, the US agreed to waive a wide range of sanctions on Iran and must renew the waiver every 120 days.

Haley stopped short, though, of saying the administration was poised to walk away from the deal.

"In an instance where the IAEA has a question about an undeclared location outside Iran's declared nuclear program, the IAEA will be able to request access under the Additional Protocol (AP), which Iran will implement as part of the JCPOA", it said.

This certification, which is not part of the deal itself, exists under USA law and - if the administration refuses to testify that Iran is living up to its end of the deal - could derail the whole thing.

"We have to consider the totality of Iran's activities and not let our view be defined exclusively by the nuclear agreement", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told journalists at a media appearance with British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in London today. He then told the Wall Street Journal that he "would be surprised if they were in compliance [by the next deadline]". He said he expected Iran to be declared noncompliant the next time - this October. "Whatever tactical disagreements may exist between the USA and Europe, there remains a rough strategic consensus about Iran among the allies".

She said, however, that it was ultimately up to the president. Also, any foreign entities that do business with these groups are risking being sentenced to sanctions from the U.S.

Tillerson isn't the only administration official exploring ways to finesse certifying the Iran deal. President Obama himself is reportedly aware of the campaign, according to these officials.

Iran on Tuesday rejected the notion that the United Nations nuclear watchdog has the right to request access to its military sites, calling into question again the Obama administration's contention that it had negotiated with Tehran the "most robust and intrusive" regime of inspections ever.

Meanwhile, to boost Iran's collapsed economy, the country's moderate forces-a coalition of progressive politicians, intellectuals and pragmatic conservatives headed by President Hassan Rouhani, who advocates reintegrating Iran into the global market-are encouraging foreign partners and businessmen to invest in Iran.

While the administration is reportedly trying to work with European allies to rework the deal or extend it, Kahl said those allies are "categorically" opposed to reopening the deal, at least in part because they think it is working.

Between 2025 and 2030, the agreement to limit Iran's stocks of low-enriched uranium and the number of centrifuge cascades it can operate will expire, allowing Iran to erect an industrial-scale nuclear program if it chooses.

Since assuming office eight months ago, US President Donald Trump, who called the agreement brokered with Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany "the dumbest deal perhaps I've ever seen in the history of deal-making", is itching to walk out of the accord.
