Trump orders review of sanctions lifted against Iran in 2015 nuclear deal

Trump's Syria strategy must target Assad's chief protector: Iran Mr. Trump, lovers of Iran would like to thank you for helping our cause

In a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, Tillerson certified that Iran was compliant through April 18 with its commitments under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

US President Donald Trump has ordered the creation of an inter-agency committee to examine whether easing the sanctions against Iran under the nuclear deal is in line with US interests, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated.

"I think it was the worst deal I've ever seen negotiated", Trump told Fox News. Last month Secretary of Defense James Mattis called Iran the "world's biggest sponsor of state terrorism". Tuesday's was the first update for the Trump administration.

He gave no indication of how long the review would take or what the likely outcome would be.

As part of the so-called "joint comprehensive plan of action" (JCPOA), the State Department must notify Congress every 90 days on Iran's compliance with the terms of the deal.

Iran has defended its nuclear programme as purely civilian.

Iran has continued to test ballistic missiles - which was not part of the nuclear agreement - and Iran has kept up its staunch support of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Tillerson is also likening Iran's behaviour to that of North Korea.

In return, many sanctions have been lifted, which has allowed Iran to ramp up its oil exports and earn billions of dollars to help its weak economy. Tuesday's determination suggested that while Trump agreed with findings by the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, that Iran is keeping to its end of the bargain, he is looking for another way to ratchet up pressure on Tehran.

United States partners in the deal - including Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China - would likely balk at linking compliance with the deal with terrorism. The NSC-led review will investigate whether lifting sanctions against the world's top sponsor of terror may not be in the USA national interest.

Positive signs are emerging, which make it costly for the U.S.to unwind the deal.

The U.S. has long accused Iran of supporting terrorism in countries such as Syria, Iraq and Yemen - as well as backing Lebanese group Hezbollah.
