Iran has welcomed the lifting of crippling sanctions, after the UN's nuclear watchdog confirmed the country had complied with the terms of an agreement aimed at curbing its nuclear program.
Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif has indicated that the nuclear agreement Iran signed with world powers may still have a future. European countries' continued support for the accord may determine if it lasts, he said.
The EU's top diplomat says the US can't terminate the Iran nuclear agreement because it's not a "bilateral deal." European leaders acknowledge Iran poses many problems, but insist they should be handled separately.
US President Trump urged the world to pressure Iran to "end its pursuit of death and destruction." He said Iran had committed multiple violations of the accord and called for sanctions on the Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
US President Donald Trump has laid the groundwork for a shift in foreign policy on Iran, but shied away from tearing up the nuclear deal — for now. However, sanctions against Iran's Revolutionary Guard are in the cards.
