"The president emphasized that the flaws in the nuclear deal must be corrected in 120 days", Ali Safavi, an official of the Washington office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

The President has argued that the deal makes the US look weak but is allegedly willing to waive the sanctions in order to toughen the terms of the agreement. "Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw".

Mr Trump said: "Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal".

The U.S. Treasury Department has sanctioned 14 companies and individuals in Iran and China - in connection with alleged human rights violations and weapons proliferation.

Araqchi further noted that a diplomatic row over the issues has been in process between the Iranian team and the United States over the past year.

In October, Trump said that he would not certify the deal, a dramatic but largely ceremonial gesture that he is expected to repeat this week.

The first US sanctions against Russia were imposed in 2014 for its role in the Ukrainian crisis and for annexing Crimea. Iran must allow "immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors", he said, and "sunset" provisions imposing limits on Iran's nuclear programme must not expire.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran stresses clearly that it will not take any measures beyond its commitment to the [2015 deal], nor will it accept changes to this agreement now or any time in the future".

European signatories to the deal have pressured the United States to stick to the accord. But Trump said that if European allies did not renegotiate the deal to his liking during that period, he would terminate it.

The JCPOA "gave Iran far too much in exchange for far too little".

"Any attempts by the U.S. side to unseal the JCPOA without consent from all the other parties would directly violate the fundamental principles of international law, and as the matter also concerns the nonproliferation regime, it would also serve as a powerful incentive toward its further erosion", Kosachyov said.
