Trump issues warning, but continues to honor Iran deal

One of the individuals is Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani, the head of Iran's judicial system.

Hailed by Obama as key to stopping Iran from building a nuclear bomb, the deal lifted economic sanctions in exchange for Tehran limiting its nuclear ambitions.

The waiver was extended for 120 days but Trump said he was doing so "for the last time" calling on European leaders involved in the deal to negotiate new terms with Tehran in order to maintain the accord.

But some liberal Democrats who support the deal want to pass legislation that would make it harder for Trump to pull Washington out without congressional consent. It is also wants to address Iran's ballistic missile programme.

What are the new sanctions?

Although Trump approved the waiver on USA sanctions as spelled out in the deal, Washington announced other sanctions against 14 Iranian entities and individuals, including judiciary head Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani, a close ally of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The Treasury Department's action hits 14 Iranian officials and companies and businessmen from Iran, China and Malaysia, freezing any assets they have in the United States and banning Americans from doing business with them. "We've rolled them out and I think you can expect there will be more sanctions coming".

He also ordered 14 separate sanctions to punish Iran over its human rights abuses, including in response to recent protests. But Trump said that if European allies did not renegotiate the deal to his liking during that period, he would terminate it.

How else did Iran react?

"The Islamic Republic of Iran stresses clearly that it will not take any measures beyond its commitment to the JCPOA, nor will it accept changes to this agreement now or any time in the future".

Parsi added that Trump's actions contradict an obligation under the accord to refrain from interfering with the implementation of the sanctions relief required under the deal.

Iran has repeatedly said that the nuclear accord can not be renegotiated, including on Saturday when the Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying Tehran would "accept no changes" to the deal and will not allow the accord to be linked to any non-nuclear issue.

What is the nuclear deal? European powers say that the accord is vital for worldwide security.

In return, decades of worldwide and USA nuclear-related sanctions were suspended.

The US Congress has a need of the president to endorse sanctions waivers concerning to the pact which is signed by Iran, the US, United Kingdom, Russia, France, Germany, China and the European Union. The agreement was reached during Barack Obama's presidency.
