Iran's Rouhani warns USA of 'historic regret' over nuclear deal

During Macron's three-day visit to Washington in April, he urged Trump to uphold the 2015 deal between Iran, the USA and other world leaders that had been brokered by Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama.

Once such a framework is in place, Congress should modify the legislation that now requires Trump to waive sanctions every few months (avoiding future crises over the deal), while incorporating some of the approaches agreed upon with the Europeans, to reinforce the message to Iran.

Britain, France and Germany remain committed to the accord and, in an effort to address US complaints, want to open talks on Iran's ballistic missile program, its nuclear activities beyond 2025 - when pivotal provisions of the deal expire - and its role in the wars in Syria and Yemen.

12 may trump need to decide whether vosstanovit his country's punitive measures against Iran.

He said he thought it turned out to be a bad deal.

Last week, Netanyahu said a "half ton" of Iranian nuclear documents seized by Israeli intelligence revealed that Iran had lied about its past efforts to produce nuclear weapons. The deal loosens longtime economic sanctions on Tehran in exchange for Iran agreeing to limit its nuclear program.

Key things to know about the Iran nuclear accord - and what is expected if Trump decides to pull out.

He has given Britain, France and Germany - who still back the deal - a 12 May deadline to fix what he views as its flaws.

The number of centrifuges installed at Iran's Natanz and Fordo sites was cut drastically soon after the deal while tonnes of low-enriched uranium were shipped to Russian Federation.

The interview came just days before British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's visit to Washington for two days of talks in an attempt to salvage the accord, The Washington Post reported.

He was due to meet US Vice-President Mike Pence, National Security Advisor John Bolton and Congressional foreign policy leaders.

However, Trump wants to make Iran's long-range missile program subject to sanctions under the agreement.

Iran signed a nodule agreement with Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States in 2015.

In a call with Theresa May on Saturday, Trump "underscored his commitment to ensure that Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon". Rouhani did not specify how Iran would react if the United States pulls out of the deal.

The Islamic republic has always denied it sought a nuclear weapon, insisting its atomic programme was for civilian purposes.

Iran is ready to potential scenarios after "necessary instructions" were given to Iranian executive bodies months ago, said Rouhani, noting that instructions were given to officials in the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

President Hassan Rouhani hinted on Monday that Iran could remain in its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers even if the United States dropped out but Tehran would fiercely resist USA pressure to limit its influence in the Middle East.
