  • Tillerson and Trump disagree over 2015 Iran nuclear deal?

Iran said Thursday that new sanctions imposed by the U.S. had violated its nuclear deal with world powers and that the country would respond, piling pressure on President Hassan Rouhani as he began his second term.

The letter, a copy of which was seen by Breitbart News, warns that the launch is the latest move by Iran that is "inconsistent" with Security Council Resolution 2231 - the 2015 resolution that affirmed the controversial Iran nuclear deal.

"The nuclear deal is a sign of Iran's goodwill on the worldwide stage", he said, referring to the 2015 agreement with world powers to curb its atomic program in exchange for an easing of sanctions. In return, Tehran won relief from worldwide economic sanctions.

The draft sanctions law, which also targets Russian Federation and North Korea, has passed the US Congress and needs President Donald Trump's signature to become law. "The United States will be vigilant in ensuring that Iran is held accountable for such behavior".

London -The United States, backed by France, Britain and Germany on Wednesday pushed for action at the UN Security Council following Iran's launch of a satellite rocket that all four countries described as a threatening and provocative step.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says neither he nor President Donald Trump is "very happy" about new sanctions on Russian Federation that Congress has voted to put in place.

Sanctions against Iran is mainly in response to Tehran's growing missile program.

Separately, on July 28, the Trump administration sanctioned six Iranian entities after Iran tested a space launching device.

The comments come as the United States is about to impose a new round of sanctions against Iran over its national missile program.

"There are a lot of alternative means with which we use the agreement to advance our policies and the relationship with Iran, and that's what the conversation generally is around with the president as well", Tillerson said.

The signing of fresh anti-Iran sanctions by Trump is an attempt to destroy the JCOPA, Araqchi, who is also Iran's senior nuclear negotiator, said.

Responding to the House vote in support of the sanctions, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani threatened last Wednesday to respond if the legislation becomes law. The US also accuses Iran of aiding terror groups spread across the Middle East, especially in Iraq and Syria.

"In our view, the nuclear deal has been violated and we will show an appropriate and proportional reaction to this issue", Araqchi said.

The bill, called the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act", targets Iran, Russia, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
