However, he understood that Trump may not be so keen on that option and suggested that the U.S. could curb the Regime without ending the deal by simply certifying Iran as noncompliant with the nuclear deal at the October deadline. "About time for U.S.to stop spinning and begin complying, just like Iran".

"My sense is that it is well-understood in European capitals that the deal will need to be strengthened if it is to survive", said Michael Singh, managing director at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

The nuclear sanctions waivers are America's part of the deal's central bargain.

This would allow the USA to impose further sanctions against the Regime, would show that the U.S. was prepared to get tough on Iran, and could bring Iran back to the negotiating table as they would not survive without the sanctions relief guaranteed under the nuclear deal.

In a speech last week, USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley laid out how and why the administration might decertify the agreement, citing Iran's other malign activities, such as support for terrorism.

During an assembly with the deans and professors of universities, Ali Akbar Velayati said "preventing sales of aircrafts to Iran is another proof that we should not rely on the U.S. and their allies".

"If the deal fell apart, because we either were in material breach or we took actions where Iran decided it needed to leave, obviously Iran would be back on the march to getting potential for a nuclear weapon and the [International Atomic Energy Agency] would lose all visibility into the program".

The document, which has been circulating on Capitol Hill and in the White House, says the president should declare to Congress next month that the deal was no longer in the national security interest of the United States.

"If the Trump administration kills the deal with Iran, [a deal] that is working and [that] the rest of the global community is highly satisfied with", he says, "it should forget about peacefully settling the nuclear standoff with North Korea".

That's produced a search for new options before the October 15 deadline under a law requiring the president to certify every 90 days that Iran is complying with the accord.

While the White House finishes its Iran policy review, a vocal campaign against any possibility of decertifying the agreement is underway, led by Obama administration officials. "Iran is clearly in default of these expectations of the JCPOA", he said. She said, however, that it was ultimately up to the president.

European allies are making the case to Trump administration officials that they should keep the JCPOA, and work with them to explore options to try to address other aspects of the Iranian threat.

On Thursday and in previous comments, Trump has said he is inclined not to certify Iranian compliance after having twice found it compliant at earlier deadlines. "On this basis, we can discuss other issues". "This is Israel's position", Netanyahu said from Argentina, where he is on a Latin American swing before making his way to NY for the world body's confab. "Goldberg was one of the most serious players in the Iran sanctions world for years, and he still has the ear of just about everyone who matters".

He told that meeting that the agency "will continue to implement the Additional Protocol in Iran, including carrying out complementary accesses to sites and other locations, as we do in other countries with Additional Protocols".

"We adamantly refuse to reopen the agreement", Araud said in a subsequent tweet.
