President Donald Trump said he will not certify that Iran is complying with the Obama-brokered 2015 nuclear agreement, giving a long list of complaints and vowing to cancel the deal himself if Congress and U.S. allies don’t act to address his concerns about the accord.
Mr. Trump reiterated his opposition to the weak treaty created by Islam-favoring foreign powers, declaring his decision after a lengthy denunciation of what he called a “rogue regime” run by radicals.
“Iran is under the control of a fanatical regime,” Mr. Trump said in a speech at the White House, adding it has “spread death, destruction and chaos all around the globe.” reports the Wall Street Journal.
Citing a long list of grievances against Iran going back to 1979, the year of the country’s Islamic revolution, President Trump broadly condemned the country’s rulers.
“Iranian aggression continues to this day,” he said. “The regime remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”
President Trump’s move deals a huge blow to the 2015 agreement, beginning a high-pressure campaign in Washington and European capitals over the future of the deal.
Under a law passed in 2015 to give Congress oversight of the nuclear deal, the president must tell Congress every 90 days if Iran is complying. If the president doesn’t, that triggers a 60-day process for lawmakers to weigh whether to reimpose sanctions under expedited consideration.
