Iranian officials have said it is possible that the United States would withdraw from the deal but that Iran would - along with the European and other parties to the deal -agree to continue the nuclear freeze.
To meet its JCPOA obligations, Iran dismantled more than 13,000 centrifuges, placed them in monitored storage, and shipped out more than 11 tons of low-enriched uranium. Not just to the public, but to Congress too.
Abandoning the agreement, the statement points out, could mean that Iran could move quickly to build a nuclear weapon if its leaders chose to do so. The previous meeting was during the administration of Barack Obama, who was supporting the agreement and its implementation.
However, now officials from this former administration are starting to realise that the deal is not so great after all. The official cited Iran's ballistic missile tests, support for terrorist groups such as Hezbollah, backing of militias fighting in neighboring countries and human-rights abuses, including the detention of several USA citizens. And it is denying inspectors access to military sites - a loophole that Iran is trying to exploit due to the ambiguity of terms.
After the president grudgingly recertified the agreement in July, he commissioned a team whose sole objective consisted of unearthing Iranian violations so that Trump could justify reversing himself the deal in October - even though doing so would not, in and of itself, kill the deal.
Cuomo to assess Irma damage in US Virgin Islands
He said 100 members of the New York Army National Guard and 30 members of the New York State Police will help with security in St. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, said in a statement he wants to prevent people from "unwarranted targeting" while in the Empire State.
Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he was preparing for a change in policy.
Donald Trump levelled sharp criticism at the agreement many a time during his election race and upon accepting the presidential office.
The postmodern European states, with their highly sophisticated system of governance and codified self-enforced rules of behavior, would likely look at the U.S as a freaky state whose leaders genuinely believe that their domestic law easily preempts global law, and are not shy to present this position as a legitimate justification to exit or torpedo worldwide agreements.
"The intimidating rhetoric of American political and security officials not only makes any change in the principle policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran in regional issues, developing conventional defense capabilities, and continuation of support for wronged nations suffering from the arrogant powers, but also exposes the real bellicose approach of this country to the public opinion of the world", underlined the Iranian official. So much for "good-faith" as a fundamental principle of an worldwide order supposed to be governed by the rule of law, or the notion that norms, customs, and principles regulate the behavior of states vis-a-vis their global obligations and responsibilities.
