Tehran has accused Washington of having "crossed all behavioral red lines of the global community", by targeting judiciary chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani.

Hailed by Obama as key to stopping Iran from building a nuclear bomb, the deal lifted economic sanctions in exchange for Tehran limiting its nuclear ambitions.

Iran yesterday rejected any modification of its nuclear deal with world powers after US President Donald Trump demanded tough new measures to keep the agreement alive.

Trump has always been a critic of the Iran Deal, which was struck by then-President Barack Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2015. These are separate to the nuclear deal.

The UN panel's report did not say Iran had supplied missiles to the Houthis.

On Friday, Trump agreed to waive sanctions against Iran that were lifted as part of the global deal but said it would be the last time unless conditions were met to fix what he called "significant flaws" in the deal.

Bhala can discuss why the president's position is wrong as well as the requirements of the deal for the U.S., Iran and global allies.

In announcing that he was again waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, Trump said this action was being taken "only in order to secure our European allies' agreement to fix the bad flaws of the Iran nuclear deal".

Since the change in administrations, the State Department likewise has certified that Iran is in "technical compliance" with the deal.

The officials notably did not say that Trump expected the other two nations party to the deal - Russian Federation and China - to join in the revision of the deal.

Iran's foreign minister, Mohammed Javad Zarif, tweeted Friday that the United States "must bring itself into full compliance - just like Iran", in reference to the 2015 nuclear deal among Iran and world powers, including Russian Federation.

The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was reached in 2015 among Iran, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and United States) plus Germany and the European Union.

Although the U.S. has suspended sanctions against Iran following the nuclear deal, it still imposes punitive measures over issues such as terrorism, human rights and ballistic missile development.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamed Javad Zarif accused Trump of "maliciously violating" the nuclear deal.

The White House is insisting Congress comes up with a solution that will allow grant wider inspection rights to worldwide inspectors, and that the current deal - which will expire in 2025 - has no expiration date. Raj Bhala, an worldwide trade law expert who has studied sanctions, can discuss the announcement, its effects, the nuclear deal, Iran, the country's economy, economic protests in Iran, the U.S. -Iran relationship and related topics. "We are cutting off the regime's money flows to terrorists", the president said in the statement. French President Emmanuel Macron stressed to Trump in a telephone call on Thursday the importance of abiding by the deal.
