Iran FM briefs parliament on Trump's threat to nuclear deal

President Trump reportedly wants to return the U.S. to the level of nuclear weapons stockpiled in the 1960s President Trump reportedly wants to return the U.S. to the level of nuclear weapons stockpiled in the 1960s

Trump has until Sunday to notify Congress whether Iran remains in compliance with the accord.

Instead, these officials said Trump is more inclined to throw the matter to Congress and push legislators to amend the law that requires the president to certify Iran's compliance every 90 days. He will pass the buck to Congress, and they will decide what to do next with the deal.

The nuclear deal was signed during Barack Obama's presidency between Iran and major world powers like the UK, France, Germany, the US, China, Russia and the European Union.

US President Donald Trump has always been sending message that Iran and P5 1 countries ( United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany) will cancel nuclear treaty signed in 2015, and United Kingdom repeats every chance that it depends on agreement.

"We need to work with allies and partners on a shared agenda that holds the regime in Iran accountable, not dividing America from our closest friends across the globe", Engel said.

"It is important to note that Iran continues to pursue an ambitious rocket and missile technology program which is not affected by the sanctions relief", the document said.

Hamas has meanwhile focused its energies on lifting Palestinian Authority (PA) "sanctions" against it in Gaza . Hamas had seized control of the Gaza Strip after armed clashes with Fatah in 2007.

Trump has called the deal forged during the Obama administration one of the nation's "worst and most one-sided transactions" ever and threatened during the presidential campaign to tear the pact up.

It gave Iran sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program in a bid to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons.

In a rare case of the United Kingdom publicly pressuring the US, the British government said Wednesday that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had called Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to underscore British support for the deal.

If Trump does decertify the accord as expected, it would put him at odds with Defense Secretary James Mattis, who last week said Tehran was "fundamentally" in compliance with the agreement and that the US should stick with the pact.

Drafts of two proposals seen by The Associated Press, one from Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker and one from committee member and deal critic Sen.

If he chooses not to certify, Trump would be defying the opinion of some of his top advisers, European countries and the International Atomic Energy Agency. "Once it was entered into, once it was implemented, we want to see it enforced".
