Trump Orders Review of Iran Nuclear Deal

By John Lee.

US President Donald Trump has directed a National Security Council-led interagency review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The US Department of State confirmed that, while Iran is compliant with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Secretary Rex Tillerson has raised concerns about Iran’s role as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Tillerson said in a statement:

Iran remains a leading state sponsor of terror through many platforms and methods. President Donald J. Trump has directed a National Security Council-led interagency review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that will evaluate whether suspension of sanctions related to Iran pursuant to the JCPOA is vital to the national security interests of the United States.

“When the interagency review is completed, the administration looks forward to working with Congress on this issue.”
