Germany to keep seeking full implementation of Iran deal - spokeswoman



It would target Iran's missile program and not simply its nuclear industry, and it would mandate UN inspections of Iranian sites.

"The U.S. government, like other parties to the deal, is obliged to fulfill all its obligations, and if it fails to comply with its obligations under false pretexts, it should be fully held accountable for the consequences", the foreign ministry said in its statement.

"There's a great deal of criticism of the deal ever since it's been struck that the deal is a poor deal for the United States and that it wouldn't matter whether or not we were in it", he says.

President Trump spent a lot of time on the campaign trail and his first year in office railing against the Iran deal that the U.S. and several European countries signed with the Middle East nation in 2015.

The move creates a deadline on talks over a nuclear deal the European Union says is working, and that it will not touch.

Meanwhile, Russia on Saturday said Washington would be making a grave mistake by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal.

Washington also imposed sanctions on the head of Iran's judiciary and others.

But he added that the administration "faces a huge challenge in getting European allies to strengthen the [nuclear agreement]".

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded on Twitter that the deal was not renegotiable and that Trump's stance "amounts to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement".

"Instead, it has served as a slush fund for weapons, terror, and oppression, and to further line the pockets of corrupt regime leaders".

The individuals said Trump's top national security aides appear to have successfully made a different case to the president: Waiving anew for 120 days the nuclear-linked sanctions while simultaneously imposing new measures to punish Iran's ballistic missile testing, alleged terrorism support and human rights violations.

Officials in Britain and the EU will likely welcome the news having fought hard to convince Trump to keep the deal in place. "This is a last chance", Trump said in a statement, EFE reported.

Iran has said its nuclear program is strictly for peaceful uses. He said remaining in the pact will give Congress more time to come up with bipartisan legislation regarding Iran.
