president donald trump stopped short of pulling out of the two thousand and fifteen agreement to limit its nuclear program for now and even though his own administration has twice certified that iran is complying with the deal he now says he won't do it again i am announcing today that we cannot and will not make this certification. we will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence more terror and the very real threat of iran's nuclear breakout that is why i am directing my administration to work closely with congress for months trump has accused his predecessor barack obama of being myopic in negotiations with iran focusing only on iran's nuclear program but not the financing of groups trump says are causing
7:03 am
instability in the region the president has directed the u.s. congress to potentially revamp u.s. law to set up tough new standards. if iran by a late arbitrary trigger point lifted sanctions could be put back in place senate republicans are already drafting legislation supported by top democrats who have always viewed the twenty fifteen deal as somewhat imperfect we're saying if they're not in compliance we're all with together on this where i am the administration also has its sights on another ronnie and target the country's revolutionary guard new u.s. treasury sanctions are being imposed which donald trump says are long overdue critics say these actions put international relations at risk and could spell the end of the deal painstakingly negotiated over more than a decade this deal was working it was delivering the iranians were living up to it the i.a.e.a. certified eight times in iran was at hearing today deal trump took
7:04 am
a perfectly working deal and transformed it into a crisis with the decision that he made today donald trump has shifted u.s. iran policy and he's not entirely ruling out with drawing from the agreement all together i may do that the deal is variable but for all his tough talk against iran donald trump has for now taken little action ceding that responsibility to the u.s. congress to take the next steps or none at all kimberly helped get al-jazeera washington. when iran's president says his country will commit to the nuclear deal as long as it's in tehran interests to do so awesome rouhani added the trump speech was full of insults and fake accusations show monists what are you worried about iranian missiles what about those weapons you give every day to aggressor countries i know targeting of the oppressed people of yemen with planes and bombs that you built yourself you don't have any protest about those weapons and that's aggression
7:05 am
and you targeted our oil platforms you are always the aggressor in this region our weapons our missiles of defending ourselves we have always been determined and today we are more determined to defend ourselves but trumps decision is raising international concern about the future of the nuclear deal michaela reports from the united nations. the security council went about its daily business discussing me and mine a closed session but the abrasive speech by president certainly resonated in this building please raise the iran deal was codify did a security council resolution back in two thousand and fifteen at a time the u.s. and the u.n. had different leaders of what has been agreed. if you like to state and european union or should germany when you write you must be fully implemented it is very important i'm sorry to see what is now happening diplomats of
7:06 am
today are sorry to be are concerned by some of the implications of this statement because we stand by the joint conference of a plan of action we judge it to be a good deal which helps improve international security and we want to see it continue to remain in force. others argue the u.s. cannot unilaterally amend a security council resolution and it is not a bilateral agreement it does not belong to any single country and it is not up to any single country to terminate it it is a multilateral agreement which was unanimously endorsed by the united nations security council resolution twenty two thirty one and the leaders in germany france and the united kingdom added their concern for the deal formerly known as a joint comprehensive plan of action they say preserving the j c p o is in our
7:07 am
shared national security interest the nuclear deal was a culmination of thirteen years of diplomacy and was a major step towards ensuring that iran's nuclear program is not diverted for military purposes the leaders added that they were worried and willing to act over iran's ballistic missile program and what they described as its regional activities iran has sent a formal letter of protest to the un secretary general it says the islamic republic of iran will not be the first to withdraw from the deal but if its rights and interests in the deal are not respected it will stop implementing all its commitments and will resume its peaceful nuclear program without any restrictions the greatest concern that iran itself withdraws from the deal shifting what was an internationally monitored and restrained nuclear process back into the darkness mike hanna al-jazeera united nations at least two people have been shot dead during
