State Department Certifies Iran's Compliance With Nuclear Deal

US announces sanctions on Iran over ballistic missiles terrorism

Instead, the Trump administration plans to take a broader approach to Tehran, moving forward on a strategy that addresses "the totality of Iran's behavior", including its missile development, support for terrorism and the Syrian regime, as well as its human rights record, including as well as the "arbitrary detention" of American citizens, a reference the arrest of Xiyue Wang, 37, who a Chinese-born US citizen studying at Princeton University. "As a result, the president, the secretary of state and the entire administration judge that Iran is unquestionably in default of the spirit of the JCPOA", the official said.

"However, the secretary of State and the president intend to emphasize that Iran remains one of the most risky threats to USA interests and to regional stability and to highlight the range of malign activities by Iran that extend well beyond the nuclear realm", the official added. "We don't need to fight to exclude each other from the scene in the Middle East", he said, "because in the end neither will be able to exclude the other".

Zarif is in the United States to speak Tuesday at a high-level meeting assessing progress toward meeting U.N. goals for 2030 to combat poverty, achieve gender equality, promote economic development and good governance, and preserve the environment.

"The secretary of State will have an announcement very shortly on that deal", Spicer told reporters Monday during an off-camera briefing at the White House. Iran, in exchange for adhering to the agreement negotiated in 2015 between itself, the United States, and global powers, gets sanctions relief.

Zarif said the International Atomic Energy Agency, "which is hardly a sympathizer for Iran", has verified its compliance with the agreement. Last week, three USA officials said the Trump administration is expected to tell Congress that Tehran is complying with an elaborate set of terms created to limit its nuclear program.

"We certainly hope that if we don't agree with each other about the situation in Yemen or about the situation in Syria we can still work with each other in order to bring those situations to an end", said Zarif, who was in NY for a high-level United Nations meeting on sustainable development.

Zarif said he and Kerry spent more time together "than with anybody else".

But he left open the possibility of changing that perception, saying: "I think that can be remedied". "The same can not be said about the US", Zarif claimed. "So we don't know which one to interpret in what way".

Earlier this year Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt all cut off diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of financing Islamist militant groups and allying with Iran - allegations Qatar denies.

Marking the second anniversary of the historic agreement aimed at ensuring the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme, UN Secretary-General Antnio Guterres has commended Tehran for implementing its nuclear-related commitments.

Asked repeatedly about USA citizens detained in Iran, the foreign minister offered to do "all it takes from my side" to ensure they have access to legal help and are treated humanely.
