Iran Accuses US Of Violating Nuclear Deal In Complaint Before UN

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is acknowledging differences with President Donald Trump but he says he's comfortable in his job and in his relationship with the commander in chief.

Speaking to reporters at the State Department on Tuesday, he American top diplomat accused Tehran of violating spirit of the nuclear deal, which also involves the UK, Russia, Germany, China, and France, according to PressTV.

However, the US Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control imposed sanctions on six Iranian firms in late July for their role in development of ballistic missile program after Tehran's launch of a rocket capable of putting a satellite into orbit.

On August 1, Ali Larijani, the speaker of Iran's parliament, said the new sanctions violate the 2015 nuclear agreement and Iran has taken its case to a United Nations commission charged with monitoring compliance with the deal, Iran's Tasnim news agency reported. Their claim: Iran's rocket test was a breach of the Iran nuclear deal.

Tillerson said that the USA has the option to "tear it up and walk away", or try to just hold Iran accountable to the terms.

European officials would likely be reluctant to re-impose sanctions, especially the broader measures that helped drive Iran to negotiate over its nuclear program in the first place, he said.

Trump promised on the campaign trail that the deal would be scrapped if he were to be elected. Although Trump is expected to sign this bill, it can go into effect with or without president Trump's signature.

Tillerson, however, said that it was important to coordinate with other western powers to put pressure on Iran and deter it from pursuing a nuclear programme.
