US President Donald Trump has decided to extend the United States' commitment to a nuclear deal with Iran only once it is changed or abandoned, White House officials said.
Under Trump's decision, the sanctions are lifted from Iran for 120 days [4 months].
"In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again suspend sanctions to stay in Iran's nuclear agreement, and if I see at any time that such an agreement is elusive, I will withdraw immediately," a White House statement said.
The Trump administration wants the European parties to sign the agreement to impose permanent restrictions on Iran's uranium enrichment. Under the current deal, the restrictions on enrichment will be lifted in 2025.
Trump also wants to deal with Iran's ballistic missile program.
