The Trump administration also said it hopes for an amendment to congressional legislation that imposes triggers on Iran of its own- and that for the first time characterizes Tehran's ballistic missile program as "inseparable" from its nuclear work, bringing with it harsh sanctions.
"I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression and supporting the Iranian people", Trump said in a statement.
"Here at the UN, we look forward to gaining new international cooperation to strengthen actions against Iranian missile activity, enforce arms embargoes that Iran violates, crack down on Iranian sponsorship of terrorism, and continue to shine a light on Iranian human rights violations".
In the interview with ISNA Saturday, Boroujerdi said that "while many European countries and the signatories of the nuclear deal have repeatedly protested [against] the irrational behavior of Trump, he is still considered as a serious violator of JCPOA".
Report says in the final agreement, the West promises to relieve sanctions on Tehran in exchange for a halt in Iran's efforts to develop a nuclear weapon. One official said the actions "will send a very strong message that the United States is not going to tolerate their continued abuses". While Iran's regular military, the Iranian Army or the Artesh, exists to defend the nation's borders from outside enemies, the IRGC exists specifically to counter domestic affairs in order to protect the country's radical Islamic system.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that "unity is essential to preserve a deal that is working, that is making the world safer, that is preventing a nuclear arms race in the region".
Trump, the same day he waived the nuclear sanctions, imposed new sanctions on Iran for its human rights abuses and its military adventurism.
The biggest name included in the new sanctions list was Sadeq Larijani, head of the Iranian judiciary and brother of Ali Larijani, who is speaker of the Iranian parliament.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang made the remarks when asked to comment on the U.S. statement. He would negotiate that deal with the UK, France, and Germany - but not with Russia, China, and Iran.
"The U.S. government, like other parties to the deal, is obliged to fulfill all its obligations, and if it fails to comply with its obligations under false pretexts, it should be fully held accountable for the consequences", the foreign ministry said in its statement. This follows previous practice, in which a reluctant president has kept the U.S.in the deal but sought other ways to get tough on Iran.
