US Lawmakers, European Nations Scramble to Save Iran Deal From Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks about tax reform in Harrisburg Pennsylvania U.S

"We got nothing", Trump told Fox News in reference to the 2015 accord negotiated with Iran by the United States and five other world powers.

The Republican chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs committee said on Wednesday the global nuclear deal with Iran should be strictly enforced by Washington working with its allies, but did not call for an end to the agreement. Engel, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, said unwinding the agreement would send a unsafe signal to allies and adversaries alike.

Several congressional Democrats who split with President Barack Obama to oppose the nuclear agreement with Iran are now urging President Donald Trump to uphold the global accord, arguing that robust enforcement is the best way to counter Tehran's malign behavior in the Middle East.

Engel said the USA must "live up to our word".

He said Iran didn't want to see the deal unravel but that "much more is at stake for the entire worldwide community than the national interests of Iran".

The agreement, under which Iran agreed to freeze its nuclear programme for 15 years in exchange for sanctions relief, is viewed in Europe as a rare triumph of worldwide diplomacy in the Middle East.

If the US backs out of the nuclear deal, "it won't be our failure at all, but a failure for the other side", Rouhani said, according to state TV.

If Congress does not act, however, it would leave the agreement in place. A congressional source and a non-governmental source familiar with the matter say the White House is looking at a Friday announcement after scrapping a tentative plan for Thursday. But Trump more recently has said he does not expect to certify Iran's compliance with the October deadline looming.

"This is the worst deal".

Several European allies have urged Trump not to nix the agreement, but instead to build on it, possibly addressing "sunset" provisions (by 2026, key nuclear restrictions lift on the accord).

Speaking at the White House Wednesday, Trump did not discuss specific timing but told reporters: "You're going to see very soon".

The certification would also demand that the intelligence community produce judgments on a range of Iranian behavior that is not covered by the nuclear deal, including ballistic missile testing and development, support for Lebanon's Hezbollah movement and Syrian President Bashar Assad, threats to Israel and the Mideast, according to the drafts. But many of his top national security aides don't want to dismantle the agreement, and America's European allies have lobbied the Trump administration and Congress to preserve the accord. "It is these security implications that we continue to encourage the U.S.to consider".
