"We expect all the sides to abide by their commitments, but the USA has remained committed to the agreement at the least level", Zarif said upon arrival in NY to participate in the meeting of the High-Level Political Forum 2017 in the United Nations headquarters, Xinhua reported.

The administration has until Monday to decide whether it will recertify Iran's adherence to the agreement, which lifts financial sanctions against the country as long as it proves it won't develop or acquire nuclear weapons.

A senior US official later told Reuters that President Donald Trump is "very likely" to approve the recertification. "No one in the U.S. has taken any steps to withdraw from this treaty, moreover, the JCPOA is an agreement that was signed not only by the USA and Iran, but also by Russia, China, the UK, France and Germany".

Zarif noted that Iran's expectation at the current stage was to see the compliance of all sides of the agreement to the deal, something which has been violated by the USA, according to Zarif.

US President Donald Trump is "very likely" to state that Iran is adhering to its nuclear agreement although he continues to have reservations about it, a senior US official said on Thursday.

Zarif's comments come on the second anniversary of the landmark deal, which was inked on July 14, 2017, between Tehran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, Britain, France, China and Russian Federation - plus Germany. That is, Trump's current uncertain policy has led to a lot of confusion and destabilization in the Middle East region.

The foreign minister said Iran has been "in the forefront of fighting terrorism and extremism in the region" and expressed satisfaction over the fact that the people and governments of Iraq and Syria have succeeded in retaking their territories.

"Now, all our efforts are focused on a comprehensive ceasefire in coordination with Russian Federation and Turkey through Astana talks, to send the humanitarian helps and relieve the Syrian people's sufferings and pains", Zarif asserted.
