New Delhi :  

US President Donald Trump accused Iran of not keeping with a deal to curb its nuclear program, 10 days before the US President has to report to Congress whether or not Tehran is complying with the 2015 accord.

"They have not lived up to the spirit of the agreement," said Trump during a meeting with senior military leaders in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, DC on Thursday.

Since the Trump came into power, he desperately wants to remove the nuclear pact and get rid of the limits it imposes on the US ability to exert more hostile policies against Iran.

According to the Trump, the Iranian regime has been indulging in the terrorist activity and exporting violence which is creating wreck in the whole Middle East. Due to this, we have to put an end to Iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambition, he added.

"You will be hearing about Iran very shortly."

October 15 is the deadline for certifying that Iran is strictly following the deal and under the Joint Comprehensive Point of Action (JCPOA) and in every 90 days US law will give the certification to the Iran on whether the Iran is complying the deal or not. And if Trump argues that Iran is not in compliance, that could cause an American withdrawal from the international pact.
