US President Donald Trump has condemned Iran as a “fanatical regime” and refused to continue certifying an international nuclear deal. He said he was referring the deal to Congress and would consult allies on how to alter it. He accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism and said he would deny the regime “all paths to a nuclear weapon”.International observers say Iran has been in full compliance with the 2015 deal freezing its nuclear programme. But Mr Trump said the deal was too lenient, and Iran had “committed multiple violations of the agreement”: On two occasions, he said, they had exceeded the limit of 130 tonnes of heavy water (a source of plutonium suitable for a nuclear bomb)Until recently, the regime had failed to meet expectations in its operation of advanced centrifuges. It had also “intimidated international inspectors into not using the full inspection authorities that the agreement calls for.” Iran, he said, was spreading “death, destruction and chaos”. It was “not living up to spirit of the deal”, he said, but was receiving the benefit of sanctions relief regardless.Photo Credit: Getty
