Trump 'Grudgingly' to Certify Iran Deal He Wanted Out Of

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis left talks with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Washington June 26

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif suggested the U.S. to reconsider its policy towards the landmark nuclear deal as it is an worldwide agreement and indicated that the policy of force and pressure is inefficient.

According to the expert, the campaign against the nuclear deal with Iran is designed more for domestic American consumption.

The US congress has set Monday as the deadline for the president to decide whether to rectify the deal that guarantees Iran's non-nuclear weapon compliance in exchange for sanctions relief.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Trump could always change his mind, Reuters reported.

The US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said the US administration has not completed the review of the JCPOA.

The Trump administration is reportedly planning to recertify Iran's compliance with the historic deal to curb its nuclear program. "We'll ensure that Iran is held strictly accountable to its requirements".

Iran denies the claim that its nuclear activities might have had military aspects, saying the program is totally for peaceful applications.

As a candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Trump was an outspoken critic of the deal but offered conflicting opinions on whether he would try to scrap it, modify it or keep it in place with more strenuous enforcement.

Trump's administration certified the deal in April.

"We believe that the USA officials should revise the way they treat the agreement because otherwise they are not helping to let the agreement survive", said the Iranian foreign minister. Other powers that brokered the nuclear deal along with the USA have said there's no appetite for renegotiating it.

While lifting nuclear-linked sanctions, the United States maintains sanctions related to Iran's ballistic missile programme, human rights record and what Washington charges is its support for worldwide terrorism.

The JCPOA was signed on July 14, 2015 between Iran and the Group 5+1 (US, Russia, Britain, France and China plus Germany).
