US, EU Countries Discuss Fate of Iran Nuclear Deal

Additionally, Trump threatened to pull-out of the Iran deal - a threat he has repeatedly made throughout his tenure as president and a candidate - if the steps he is proposing are not taken.

Both Trump and Netanyahu have been outspoken critics of the Obama-era deal, which lifted crippling economic sanctions against Tehran in exchange for it curbing its nuclear program. The president wants European allies to join him in demanding an end to Iran's ballistic-missile testing, which are not addressed by the nuclear deal; unrestricted access for United Nations nuclear inspectors to Iran's military sites, which have previously hosted nuclear weapons experimentation; and permanent caps on Iran's enrichment of fissile material, which in the current deal sunset within 10 to 15 years.

He said, "Last Friday I returned from the U.S. where I met with the President of the United States, a great friend of Israel, Donald Trump".

"The conversation lasted an hour longer than was allocated for it".

Fresh off talks with Trump, Netanyahu vowed in a barnstorming speech at the AIPAC conference in Washington that Israel would never allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon.

Elsewhere in his statement, Mr. Trump echoed the official United States policy: while maintaining Washington's stance on lifting parts of sanctions against Tehran, the USA keeps cautious in its policies dealing with Iran.

"President Trump has made it clear that his administration will not accept Iran's aggression in the region".

Netanyahu and Trump's meeting on Monday was their fifth over the past year.

Earlier that month, Trump announced he would waive the sanctions on Iran as required by the nuclear agreement but for the last time.

Trump set May 12 as the deadline for reaching an agreement on how to change the Iran deal with the three European countries.
