Trump admin orders review of Iran nuclear deal sanctions: US


Washington : The Trump administration has ordered an inter-agency review of whether the suspension of sanctions on Iran under a landmark nuclear deal in 2015 was in the US’ national security interests, the secretary of state has said.

The development of the US reviewing the sanctions relief for Iran comes as Washington also asserted that Iran remains a “leading sponsor” of terrorism. “Iran remains a leading state sponsor of terror, through many platforms and methods,” Tillerson wrote in a letter to the House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, in which he certified that Iran has so far complied with the provisions of the nuclear agreement.
