Tillerson's letter on Wednesday was the first such notification since Trump took office. In the view of Chinese officials, the "military option is not an option" because it would throw Southeast Asia into complete chaos, and "we do not want war or chaos on the doorstep of China". "We could be wrong".
"Public statements lambasting the nuclear deal with Iran as a "failed approach" and comparing the country with North Korea are reckless and blatantly false".
The agreement between Iran and six world powers, negotiated during Barack Obama's presidency, placed limitations on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting worldwide oil and financial sanctions against Iran.
The disagreement between Obama and Netanyahu over the deal had strained US-Israel ties and Obama-Netanyahu relationship. He had said in January 2016, after the deal was implemented, that "Iran will not get its hands on a nuclear bomb". Since the sanctions have been lifted, oil exports from Iran to India have surged.
But Majidyar argued that scrapping the deal wouldn't help Washington. "So we'll see what happens".
Those parties have been talking for some time to the United Nations watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency about clarifying various aspects of the deal that were ambiguous to ensure stricter implementation, the first diplomat said.
Asked if Trump was concerned that Iran might be cheating on the deal, Sean Spicer told reporters at a daily press briefing: "He's doing the prudent thing by asking for a review of the current deal". "If he didn't, if he thought everything was fine he would've allowed this to move forward". -Iranian tensions, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis, who was in Saudi Arabia on a tour of the Middle East, on Wednesday accused Iran of sending missiles to rebel Houthi fighters in Yemen.
"The evidence is clear - Iran's provocative actions threaten the United States, the region and the world", Tillerson said.
Vladimir Voronkov, Russia's permanent representative to the International Organizations in Vienna, told TASS on Tuesday that U.S. banks do not work effectively to unfreeze Iranian assets.
