United States will not certify Iran nuclear deal: Pence

Senator Marco Rubio left has said during a meeting in Florida that he won't refuse NRA donations

The United States wants "flaws" in what it calls sunset clauses in the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal to be reworked.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for the scrapping or amending of the nuclear deal, and said if some key issues were not addressed - including lack of global inspections of Iran's military nuclear sites, as well as the lifting of some nuclear restrictions after 2025 - the US might withdraw entirely and reimpose the sanctions lifted under the deal.

Iran has fired a diplomatic warning shot at Washington by raising the prospect of building nuclear reactors for ships while staying within the limits set by its atomic deal with major powers, a United Nations nuclear watchdog report showed on Thursday.

Analysts have said Iran is many years or decades away from having naval nuclear capacity. "We can not stay in a deal in which there is no benefit for us", he said.

The report also said that Iran had told the IAEA by letter of a decision that "has been taken to construct naval nuclear propulsion in future".

"I also believe that Iran isn't anywhere close to pulling out of the agreement", he added.

Iran Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi contended Thursday in a London speech that Trump's frequent complaints about the deal represent a violation of the terms of the accord and have hurt his country's ability to secure new foreign investment money.

Aside from the relatively minor breach on heavy water, the IAEA reports have consistently shown Iran adhering to the deal in the two years since it took effect. Conservatives, however, opposed the agreement saying the USA is not a trustworthy partner.

Araqchi further said, "The deal would not survive this way even if the ultimatum is passed and waivers are extended".

As a result, the economic gains Iran expected after it signed the deal have been stymied. "Trump has created an atmosphere of uncertainty which is like a poison for the business community in working with Iran".

President Trump has pointed out three major issues he sees in the Iran nuclear deal.

The weaknesses needing to be addressed include: demanding that Iran open up its military sites for inspection, demanding an end to its missile development program, an end to the sunset clauses that allow Iran to develop an industrial strength enrichment program, and punishing Iran for its terror support and human rights abuses.

Boris Johnson, the UK's foreign secretary, also said no country has come up with a "better idea" to replace the agreement.
