Iran Rejects Trump Demand For Renegotiation Of Nuclear Deal

EU summit backs Iran nuclear agreement ahead of Trump decision

The next sanctions waivers are due in May.

"We are gradually coming to the conclusion that an internal decision by the United States to leave the (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) has already been made or is close to being made", Ryabkov said in an interview with Interfax news agency.

The 2015 deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was signed by the USA under the previous administration of president Barack Obama as well as Iran, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany.

In his lengthy statement, Trump said the US would work with European partners to remove the nuclear deal's so-called "sunset clauses", which allow Iran to gradually resume advanced atomic activity.

On Friday, Trump said he would waive nuclear sanctions against Tehran for the last time to give the United States and European allies a chance to fix the "terrible flaws" of the nuclear deal signed by the previous administration in 2015.

China will continue playing a constructive role in maintaining and implementing the Iran nuclear deal, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Saturday.

Washington also announced sanctions against 14 entities and people, including the head of Iran's judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani.

Trump stopped short for a third time of re-imposing harsh sanctions meant to push Tehran to give up its nuclear weapons research.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week that he was working with Congress on legislative changes that would "strengthen the way the US enforces the agreement".

Trump's declaration puts great pressure on Britain, France and Germany, the European signatories to nuclear pact with Iran.

Russian Federation spoke out strongly Friday in favor of the accord, ahead of the announcement of Trump's decision, calling it "the result of a consensus among many parties", in the words of Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

The president's proposals to "fix the deal's disastrous flaws" include Iran's agreement to open all sites immediately to worldwide inspectors and an assurance from Tehran that it will never develop a nuclear weapon.

United Nations inspectors have certified Iran's compliance with the deal nine times, most recently in November. It said the sanctions are against worldwide law and go against US commitments, saying they would bring a "strong reaction" from Iran.

In particular, it will not begin to expire after 10 years as parts of the existing deal do, but instead would impose permanent restrictions on not just Iran's nuclear plants but also its missile program.
