With announcement, the president in effect begins a four-month countdown until the US ceases to comply with its obligations under the agreement
Donald Trump has waived a raft of sanctions against Iran as required under a 2015 nuclear agreement, staying within the deal for the time being, but has vowed that it would be the last such waiver he signs if the accord is not radically altered.
With his announcement, the president in effect began a four-month countdown until the US ceases to comply with its obligations under the agreement. The next sanctions waivers fall due on 12 May.
