Trump expected to decertify Iran nuclear deal

By Mike Tyler

October 12, 2017 - Officials say President Donald Trump is expected to announce that the 2015 international deal to curb Iran’s nuclear programme is no longer in the U.S. national interest, a move which could endanger the landmark accord.

Trump faces an October 15 deadline to tell Congress if he believes Iran is complying with the seven-nation pact and if it advances U.S. interests.

The president has called the April 2015 deal, which forced Iran to scale back its nuclear programme in exchange for broad relief from international economic sanctions, one of the nation’s “worst and most one-sided transactions” ever.
