USA issues ultimatum to 'fix' Iran nuclear deal

Steven Mnuchin testifying during his Senate Finance committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. Jan. 19 2017

"We will continue to work together with worldwide community against these USA steps", he added.

Administration officials said Trump would pull the United States out of the agreement if the fixes are not made.

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

The president called for European allies to strike a deal fixing the terms of the global agreement, which unfroze key Iranian financial assets in exchange for a reduction in its nuclear programs.

"This is a last chance", Trump said, pushing for a separate agreement.

In his statement, Trump said he is waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure US's European allies agreement to fix the "terrible flaws" of the Iran nuclear deal.

In a live broadcast by Iranian state television of a speech on January 14, Rohani said: "Trump, despite his repeated efforts, has failed to undermine the accord".

The new terms Trump seeks with the European countries appear similar to actions he asked Congress to take three months ago but that Congress has not acted on.

Police said the accident happened on 10 January and the accused was arrested the next day but later released on bail. The incident took place on Wednesday afternoon when Saini was returning home from his college.

The United States has sanctioned around 100 individuals and entities involved with Iran's ballistic missile program and other activities which the United States saw as "illicit", according to Trump's statement on Friday. It also sanctioned agencies that censor or limit access to the Internet. His decision will keep the 2015 nuclear deal alive for the time being.

Senior U.S. administration officials told reporters Trump would work with Europeans on a follow-on deal to enshrine triggers that the Iranian government could not exceed related to ballistic missiles.

The Republican leader grudgingly agreed to sign sanctions waivers, ensuring Washington will live up to its commitments for another 120 days, but he cautioned it would be 'for the last time'.

Some of those deadlines came up this week. Trita Parsi, head of the National Iranian American Council, called it a "temporary stay of execution".

The United States proposes removing clauses that suggest parts of the deal expire after 10 to 15 years and tying long-range missile technology to nuclear weapons - meaning testing the former would be seen as a similar sin to developing the latter.

But proponents of the deal say that it forced Iran to destroy much of its nuclear equipment and allow strict inspections that prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Trump is also waiving other USA penalties covered by the agreement, including on Iran's oil and gas sectors, which were up for renewal next week. The European Union has also imposed penalties against Moscow, prompting it to retaliate with banning food imports from countries that sanction Russian Federation.

The waiver he will sign suspends U.S. sanctions on Iran for another 120 days.The White House wants European Union signatories to agree permanent restrictions on Iran's uranium enrichment.

Mr Trump was the one that needed to check his compliance, he said.
