Iran says nuclear deal violated by new United States sanctions

Iran says nuclear deal violated by new United States sanctions”

Iranian authorities on Thursday said the USA ratification of a new sanctions bill was an attempt to destroy the nuclear agreement signed between Tehran and six major global powers in July 2015.

"My Administration will give careful and respectful consideration to the preferences expressed by the Congress in these various provisions and will implement them in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to conduct foreign relations", Trump said in the statement.

"We expect their continued adherence", Ray said when asked to comment on the Iranian charges.

Following the nuclear deal, Washington and the European Union lifted sanctions related to Iran's atomic programme that the West alleged was for military purposes but Tehran said was peaceful.

Ray said the EU's conclusion that Iran deal remained sound was based on the results of a meeting on July 21 in Vienna, where parties to the deal discussed its implementation.

Trump signed off the new sanctions - which also target Russian Federation and North Korea - on Wednesday.

"The Iran sanctions also risk pushing the US into violation of the nuclear accord by obligating the Trump administration to redesignate entities scheduled for sanctions relief".

Ray said the joint commission allowed for the Iranian view on new United States sanctions to be widely discussed.

Mogherini's office said at the time in a statement that participants in the meeting confirmed their continued adherence to the deal and "stressed the need to ensure its full and effective implementation in a constructive atmosphere".

Mogherini is due in Tehran on Saturday for the inauguration of Hassan Rouhani, who was re-elected to a second term as president in May.

In addition, the Iranian committee charged with monitoring the implementation of the nuclear agreement has announced that it will give a strong response to the new U.S. sanctions.
