Iran warns U.S. of 'historic regret' if nuclear deal collapses

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned the US that leaving the deal could prove disastrous.

But Iran is ruling out new talks, calling the current agreement "nonnegotiable".

Trump's main objections to the deal are that it does not address Iran's misbehaviour in the region or its ballistic missile programme, nor does it prevent Iran from restarting its nuclear programme after 2025.

Trump hinted at his thinking Monday.

The official said Trump shared Israel's scepticism about the deal and voiced hope for new USA sanctions, noting the effect of past measures against Iran's banking and oil sector.

In a briefing to foreign reporters on Sunday local time, the Accoxiated Press quoted Mr Netanyahu as saying "a deal that enables Iran to keep and hide all its nuclear weapons know-how, is a frightful deal".

Few people are willing to predict how the impasse will be bridged. "So we've lost a lot of our leverage", he said. "All in all it is a big help for Trump ahead of the May 12 decision".

The Trump administration appears ready to decertify Iranian compliance with the the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), despite a lack of evidence of Iranian violations.

Rohani warns: "If the USA withdraws from this agreement, everyone will soon see that they are extremely regretful and have never seen it before".

Mr Trump must decide by 12 May whether to renew the waiver on sanctions, and has a wide range of options on whether to re-impose them.

The deal "has to be either fully fixed or fully nixed", he said.

A senior Israeli official said Sunday that Trump had not informed Israel of whether it will withdraw from the agreement.

Behnam Ben Taleblu, a research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies said, "There is a possibility for this data to be used for withdrawal, but you could also really pressure the Europeans to meet us more than halfway".

Johnson wrote that officials from France, Germany and the United Kingdom have been working to address Trump's concerns with the existing agreement.

The Boston Globe cited a person briefing on the meetings and said Kerry, who served as the secretary of state between 2013 and 2017, met Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif at the United Nations in NY a couple of weeks ago to discuss ways to keep the deal intact.

President Trump has been threatening to pull out of the agreement, negotiated in 2015 between Tehran and six world powers, including France and Germany. That's viewed with intense by outsiders.

"If we can get what we want from a deal without America, then Iran will continue to remain committed to the deal".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, have lobbied Trump directly during meetings last month. But Macron has argued that any new agreement be an add-on, not a replacement.

Trump's European allies, however, are urging him to stay the course.

Netanyahu told his Cabinet earlier Sunday that Iran has delivered advanced weapons to Syria "in order to attack us both on the battlefield and on the home front, including weaponized UAVs, ground-to-ground missiles and Iranian anti-aircraft batteries that would threaten air force jets".
