Iran and six world powers have agreed to implement a deal that would temporarily freeze much of Tehran's nuclear program. It's set to go into effect on January 20. In exchange some economic sanctions will be eased for six months.
Washington is at a turning point in its North Korea policy, with a new terror blacklisting and a more aggressive sanctions regime that is drawing the ire of China and further isolating the embattled regime in Pyongyang.
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.
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.
