Iran says will retaliate against United States sanctions on chief judge

Iran said Saturday it won't accept President Donald Trump's request to change its 2015 nuclear deal after the president threatened to pull out of the accord unless allies agreed to "fix the deal's disastrous flaws". The next sanctions waivers are due in May.

Iran has said it's not interested in any renegotiation and would nearly certainly view a side agreement between the US and Europe as a violation of the deal.

He paired Friday's concession with other, targeted sanctions on Iran for human rights abuses and ballistic missile development.

Russian Federation - one of the parties to the Iran pact alongside the United States, China, France, Britain, Germany and the European Union - called Trump's comments "extremely negative".

Trump said on Friday he would waive nuclear sanctions on Iran for the last time to give the United States and European allies a final chance to amend the pact.

In Brussels on Thursday, the European Union and the foreign ministers of Britain, Germany and France presented a united front after talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. "In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal".

"If at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately", he added. Officials, congressional aides and outside administration advisers said had the president would likely extend the sanctions waivers, citing progress in amending USA legislation that governs Washington's participation in the deal.

The EU said in a statement it had taken note of Trump's decision and would assess its implications.

Washington also announced sanctions against 14 entities and people, including the head of Iran's judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani.

Washington policy hawks hailed Trump's decision, which they said would concentrate minds in Europe, where leaders have urged the U.S. president not to sabotage a deal they see as a landmark diplomatic success.

Russian Federation spoke out strongly Friday in favor of the accord, ahead of the announcement of Trump's decision, calling it "the result of a consensus among many parties", in the words of Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. He said remaining in the pact will give Congress more time to come up with bipartisan legislation regarding Iran.

The deal on Iran's nuclear program was reached between Iran and six global mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.
