Trump decision looms over Iran deal as Europe watches

Trump decision looms over Iran deal as Europe watches

Trump is also urging Congress to reform United States law so the president is no longer required to declare every 90 days whether he thinks Iran is in compliance, or to renew sanctions waivers every 120 or 180 days.

"We are gradually coming to the conclusion that an internal decision by the USA to leave the (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) has already been made or is close to being made", Ryabkov said in an interview with Interfax news agency.

He paired Friday's concession with other, targeted sanctions on Iran for human rights abuses and ballistic missile development.

Trump's Friday announcement will "reflect frustration at European allies and at Congress" for dragging their feet over proposed legislative changes that would call for stricter enforcement of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Bloomberg News foreign policy reporter in Washington.

"It's incumbent on those who oppose the (deal) really to come up with that better solution, because we haven't seen it so far", he said.

On Friday, Trump said he would waive nuclear sanctions against Tehran for the last time to give the USA and European allies a chance to fix the "terrible flaws" of the nuclear deal signed by the previous administration in 2015.

Iran's president said on Sunday the United States had failed to undermine a nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers, and hailed the accord as a "long-lasting victory" for Iran, state television reported. "In the absence of such an agreement, the U.S. will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal".

But Trump, who must meet regular deadlines to endorse the deal every 90 days and approve sanctions waivers every 120 and 180 days, has railed against the agreement.

"Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw".

He said Iran's restraint on long-range ballistic missile programs also must be linked to sanctions relief.

While there may be some relief that Trump has yet to torpedo the hard-won accord, there were clear signs of frustration from European capitals in the runup to the decision.

The EU said it would hold internal consultations and was "committed to the continued full and effective implementation" of the deal.

Trump's declaration puts great pressure on Britain, France and Germany, the European signatories to nuclear pact with Iran.
