Iran FM criticizes U.S. policy towards nuke deal

President Donald Trump reportedly plans to recertify Iranian compliance with the Iran nuclear deal - a pact he vowed to "dismantle" during his campaign.

The administration faces a Monday deadline, imposed by Congress, to affirm that Tehran is abiding by restrictions on its nuclear program, for which it receives sanctions relief.

The decision followed what several officials characterized as heated internal debate that culminated at a principals committee last week in a clash between a number of White House officials and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis.

"We believe that the USA officials should revise the way they treat the agreement because otherwise they are not helping to let the agreement survive", said the Iranian foreign minister.

Their concerns come after Trump is said to have asked former Director James Comey for a loyalty pledge before firing him in May. Wray repeatedly vowed independence, saying he would be "faithful to the Constitution". "And that is with strict independence".

Trump's administration certified the deal in April.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Trump could always change his mind, Reuters reported. The historic agreement shut down most of Iran's nuclear program, in some cases for decades, in exchange for an easing of worldwide sanctions.

"We urge your administration to recognize the national security benefits of the nuclear agreement and appropriately weigh the risks to our troops of escalating tensions with Iran", reads the letter co-signed by 38 former leaders of the U.S. armed forces.

"The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) proved that followers of the policy of pressure have finally realized its inefficiency, therefore, the U.S. should also reconsider its approach towards the agreement", Zarif said upon his arrival at the airport in New York Thursday afternoon local time (early Friday morning in Tehran). "The president has been very frank about his opinion". "We share responsibility to make sure that this continues to be implemented fully by all".
