Why Iran and Oman are strengthening tiesMore

Iran " s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has called on the United States to reconsider its negative approach towards the nuclear deal as it is an worldwide agreement. But State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that until the Iran review is completed, the USA will continue upholding its side of the agreement: relief from nuclear sanctions.

Zarif noted that Iran's expectation at the current stage was to see the compliance of all sides of the agreement to the deal, something which has been violated by the U.S., according to Zarif.

The Weekly Standard, citing four unnamed sources, said Trump will make the formal move before a congressionally mandated deadline Monday.

According to the expert, the campaign against the nuclear deal with Iran is designed more for domestic American consumption.

Macron says Paris 2024 Olympic bid embodies "threatened" values
The LA bid team declined to comment Tuesday whether the suggestion came from its supporters, as some believe. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter: "Working hard to get the Olympics for the United States (L.A.).

However, the Iranian minister has no meeting scheduled with United States officials.

He added that all parties to the historic nuclear deal have achieved what they wanted, as the nature of negotiation is being comprehensive. Trump and some top members of his administration remain critical of the deal, but so far, the president has not announced a decision to pull out.

Under the agreement, limits were put on Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all nuclear-related bans against the Islamic Republic. For now, the State Department's official line is that it's not making any major shifts until the completion of an ongoing overall review of U.S. -Iran policy, so changes could be coming.

The International Atomic Energy Agency and United Nations have stated that the Islamic Republic is complying with the agreement, as many USA congressmen, especially those in Trump's republican party, have been accused of politicizing the deal, alleging Tehran's links to sanctioned individuals or groups designated on its "terrorist" lists. Under its terms, Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program, long suspected of being aimed at developing atomic weapons, in return for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.
