"Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw", he said. Trump, however, specified it would be the last time he signs the waiver unless the deal is modified.
In a bizarre kicker in the waiver announcement, the United States indicated it hopes to rewrite much of the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and to get its European allies, who wholly back the deal as it is, to do the bargaining for them, he said.
The U.S. decision in imposing new sanctions on the Iranian individuals and entities proves the U.S. government's animosity towards the great Iranian nation.
"We see this as yet another attempt to influence our internal situation, especially ahead of the presidential election", he said.
The new round of sanctions could include a ban on purchasing Russian treasury bonds, Reuters also reported.
An Iranian government official on Saturday said that Iran would pursue its ballistic missile program despite US pressure, and slammed US President Donald Trump for his "irrational behavior", calling him the "most hated president in American history". JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating tired rhetoric, US must bring itself into full compliance -just like Iran.
Iran insists its nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes, while the United States and other countries claim it has been trying to develop nuclear weapons. It prevents Iran from developing nuclear weapons while offering sanctions relief to allow it to participate in international commerce and banking.
The other parties to the agreement - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the European Union - have all said the deal is working and that Iran is complying fully with its commitments.
"As an old continent, Asia can turn the variety of cultures into an opportunity for convergence and cooperation among the nations", said Torkaman. "The bottom line is, he's stuck with this deal".
"In the end, the success of the nuclear deal relies on Iranians".
"The prospect of the US withdrawal from the Iran deal will deliver a very serious blow to the whole system of international agreements and to the enhancing of the nuclear non-proliferation regime", Ryabkov said.
On Friday, Trump said he would waive nuclear sanctions against Tehran for the last time to give the US and European allies a chance to fix the "terrible flaws" of the nuclear deal signed by the previous administration in 2015. It has an expiration date in 2025 and has allowed Iran to have missile technology. The U.N. nuclear watchdog agency has repeatedly found Iran is complying with those obligations. He also wants Tehran's ballistic missile program to be addressed.
