For Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Trump's actions are an attempt to unilaterally destroy a multilateral deal, a move Zarif believes is not allowable under worldwide law. The Treasury Department stated in a press release that Larijani is responsible for serious human rights abuses against the Iranian people.

Part of the nuclear deal was that the USA would waive the sanctions, which are part of the relief Iran gets in exchange for destroying much of its nuclear equipment and allowing inspections.

In his lengthy statement, Trump said the USA would work with European partners to remove the nuclear deal's so-called "sunset clauses", which allow Iran to gradually resume advanced atomic activity.

Trump's action, which was widely expected, is the third time he has given a reprieve to the agreement brokered by former president Barack Obama, despite having labeled it "the worst deal ever" and threatening repeatedly to rip it up. "JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, United States must bring itself into full compliance -just like Iran". Some of the restrictions on Iran are scheduled to be lifted after 10 and 15 years.

The legislation is required to include certain "triggers" which will automatically lead to a reimposition of the sanctions if Iran fails to apply.

Supporters expressed skepticism that the deal will survive in its current form.

The EU said in a statement it had taken note of Trump's decision and would assess its implications.

But Trump gave European allies only 120 days to agree to an overhaul of the deal.

The head of Iran's judiciary, Sadegh Amoli Larijani, was put on the USA blacklist.

"These designations politically will go to the top of the regime", said another administration official, also speaking anonymously, "and send the message that the United States will not tolerate the violation of the rights of [Iranian] citizens".

A statement from French President Emmanuel Macron on January 13 called for the "necessary respect" of the nuclear deal.

"We are cutting off the regime s money flows to terrorists". It also said Iran would not allow the deal to be linked to other issues, following the president's suggestion the deal be tied to Iran limiting its long-range ballistic missile program.

The U.S. decision in imposing new sanctions on the Iranian individuals and entities proves the U.S. government's animosity towards the great Iranian nation. According to the European Union, which placed its own sanctions on the judiciary chief in 2012, Sadegh Larijani has "personally signed off on numerous death penalty sentences".

"This could be one of Washington's big foreign policy mistakes, a big miscalculation in American policy", he said. Malaysia-based Green Wave Telecommunications was named for providing US technology to Iranian companies. "It's overfilled with anger and poison", the official said.
