Trump again extends Iran nuclear deal he vowed to rip up

Latest news

    President Donald Trump again waived the economic sanctions on Iran as a part of the nuclear deal with the country despite his repeated criticism of the Obama-era accord in what White House officials say will be the final extension.

    “This is the last such waiver he will issue,” a senior administration official said, adding that the White House will be working with its European allies on updating the other conditions of the nuclear agreement including when certain clauses of the deal will end.

    In announcing the extension — the fourth for the Trump administration — the White House said it would impose new, non-nuclear sanctions outside of the deal against 14 Iranian individuals and entities.

    The United Nations Security Council and European Union agreed to the waiver in 2015 in exchange for Iran’s promise that it would rollback its nuclear development efforts.
