USA state Department to make announcement about Iran nuclear deal

As the United States and Iran mark two years since reaching their landmark deal on nuclear weapons, analysts say Iran has met its obligations stipulated by the agreement-while the US has failed to do so.

The Trump administration is likely to re-certify Iran's compliance with the nuclear weapons agreement, keeping a deal in place which the president has harshly criticized.

"The IAEA has verified, I believe, seven times now since the Implementation Day that Iran has implemented the deal faithfully, fully and completely". But with the introduction of a Senate bill that would impose new sanctions on Iran aimed at its ballistic missile program, the language of which the nonpartisan Arms Control Association calls "overly broad and imprecise", critics say the US has not met the deal's terms, endangering the agreement.

Tehran Iran has blamed the United States of not fulfilling its obligations under the nuclear deal, dubbed as an historical document undersigned in Vienna in 2015 between Iran and five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany.

The administration is hitting a deadline to say whether it believes Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal that President Trump in his campaign promised to obliterate; an announcement is expected soon, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.
