Iran: US not upholding 'spirit' of nuclear deal

He made the remarks upon his arrival to NY, while he was questioned by reporters about his reaction to the news that Trump administration is going to verify, for the second time, Iran's adherence to the nuclear deal.

U.S. President Donald Trump is "very likely" to recertify Iranian compliance with the Iran nuclear agreement although he continues to have reservations about it, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.

Under the deal negotiated by President Barack Obama and world powers, the administration must certify to Congress every three months whether Iran is complying with an elaborate set of terms created to limit its nuclear program.

The Weekly Standard, citing four unnamed sources, said Trump will make the formal move before a congressionally mandated deadline Monday.

Though officials cautioned that Trump could still change his mind, they said the administration was preparing to say Iran is indeed complying but that the certification does not prejudge the outcome of Trump's Iran policy review.

That's not to say that the deal will definitely outlive the Trump administration.

While lifting nuclear-linked sanctions, the United States maintains sanctions related to Iran's ballistic missile program and human rights record.

Zarif's comments come on the second anniversary of the landmark deal, which was inked on July 14, 2017, between Tehran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, Britain, France, China and Russian Federation - plus Germany.

The foreign minister, who is scheduled to speak at a United Nations meeting, called for Washington to make a record of its own deficiencies under the joint agreement. Under its terms, Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program, long suspected of being aimed at developing atomic weapons, in return for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.
