United States seeks excuses to undermine Iran nuclear deal - Tehran

"The Trump administration is continuing to review and develop its policy on Iran.No decision has been made", Tillerson said. "We believe that the only entity that can confirm Iran's commitment to its obligations is the International Atomic Energy Agency and according to its reports, the Islamic Republic has complied with all of its obligations".
Speaking in London at a joint news conference with British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Tillerson told reporters the administration's approach to Iran could not be determined on the basis of the nuclear accord alone.
The global agreement is facing a serious threat of collapse as tensions mounted between Washington and Tehran recently.
As with with so many other matters, Trump's bellicose instincts have clashed with his more pragmatic aides.
