"This is a last chance", Trump said, pushing for a separate agreement and saying the United States would not waive sanctions again to keep Iran in the pact without such an agreement.
As Trump agreed to the sanctions relief, US Department of Treasury on Friday said that it has imposed new sanctions on 14 individuals and entities over Iran's alleged human rights abuses and ballistic missile programme, including the head of Iran's judiciary and the cyber unit of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.
But the angst in Berlin, Brussels, London and Paris underlined what is at stake: the mercurial U.S. president is quite capable of sabotaging the agreement.
These penalties largely cut Iran out of the global financial system, until they were suspended by Obama under the nuclear deal. "Iran should be denied all paths to a nuclear weapon. forever".
"Iran strongly announces that it will make no measure beyond its JCPOA commitments and will make no changes in the nuclear deal neither now nor in the future", the statement read.
Senior administration officials said the White House intends to negotiate with European allies a menu of "triggers" to re-impose multilateral sanctions if Iran oversteps those lines.
It is aimed at ensuring Iran uses its nuclear capabilities for peaceful purposes while preventing it from gaining nuclear weapons. Brokered and signed by the US, UK, Russia, France, China, and Germany, the JCPOA places limitations on Iran's nuclear energy program in return for the lifting of economic sanctions on Tehran.
By thus "decertifying" the arrangement, he opened a window for Congress to reimpose sanctions, but to date, it has not done so - leaving the issue of the waivers. Officials, congressional aides and outside administration advisers said had the president would likely extend the sanctions waivers, citing progress in amending USA legislation that governs Washington's participation in the deal.
