Experts urge Trump not to abandon Iran nuclear deal

Some have argued that sanctions would not simply roll back into place because the nuclear deal was not just between Iran and the U.S.; it was also signed by the UK, France, Germany, China, Russia, and the UN.

Jaffer stated that he was pleased that the Donald Trump administration was looking into alternatives but said that the best option would be to scrap the nuclear deal altogether, whether or not a replacement was found.

On Monday, Amano said Iran has been fulfilling its commitments under the nuclear accord after Washington suggested it was not adhering to the deal.

Last week, Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, called the deal a "very flawed and very limited agreement" and contended that "Iran has been caught in multiple violations over the past year-and-a-half".

However, the United States introduced new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile program this year, prompting Tehran's criticism. The group said it was "concerned by statements from the Trump administration that it may be seeking to create a false pretext for accusing Iran of noncooperation or noncompliance with the agreement in order to trigger the reimposition of nuclear-related sanctions against Iran".

The experts who signed the letter, though, described the agreement as "an effective and verifiable arrangement that is a net plus for worldwide nuclear nonproliferation efforts" and warned against leaving it.

They said that abandoning the deal "without clear evidence of an unresolved material breach by Iran. runs the risk that Tehran would resume some of its nuclear activities".
