Trump will QUIT nuclear deal unless flaws are fixed — IRAN'S LAST CHANCE

US officials expect Trump to grudgingly sign the sanction waivers once again

Trump says the deal has flaws.

"If the president can get that agreement that meets his objective and it never expires, it denies Iran all paths to nuclear weapons forever, not for ten years, he would be open to remaining in such a modified deal", the official said.

In Tehran, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif condemned Trump for "maliciously violating" the nuclear agreement.

Trump on Friday, once again, reluctantly signed waivers crucial to keep the agreement in place, but he also demanded that European allies agree to rewrite the nuclear deal within 120 days or else he would kill it. The agreement was reached during Barack Obama's presidency.

At the same time, Trump's administration said the United States would impose other new, targeted sanctions on 14 persons and entities not directly tied to the nuclear accord.

The EU said in a statement it had taken note of Trump's decision and would assess its implications.

Moscow has a critical attitude toward the latest US statement on reviewing the Iran nuclear deal and will do all it can to resist any attempt to scrape the deal, Russian authorities said Saturday. The argument for staying in, the official said, was to allow time to toughen the terms of the agreements.

"The Iran deal in its current form is unacceptable and is simply not working", Mr. Gardiner said.

The landmark 2015 deal curbed Iran's nuclear ambitions in return for the relaxing of punishing sanctions

Under the accord, Iran slowed its nuclear programme in exchange for an easing of global economic sanctions.

Trump has called the deal "the worst ever". Without a fix, Trump has threatened to withdraw.

Trump on Friday issued a statement on the deal in which 6 world powers agreed to lift economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for its curbing of nuclear activities. But Trump said that if European allies did not renegotiate the deal to his liking during that period, he would terminate it.

Iran says its nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes.

Underscoring the difficulty now facing Europeans, a European diplomat, speaking under condition of anonymity, said: "It's going to be complicated to save the deal after this".

"The nuclear deal is an internationally recognized and concluded pact and is not renegotiable", Tehran's Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding that Iran "will not accept any change in the deal, neither now nor in future".

The 2015 nuclear accord, reached after months of painstaking negotiations with the US, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation, lifted global sanctions in exchange for Iran limiting its nuclear program. On Thursday Britain, France and Germany urged Trump to uphold the pact.

On one level, those protests made President Trump, if anything, more intent on walking away from the deal as a way of punishing the regime.
