Trump reluctantly recertifies the Iran deal

The Trump administration announced on Monday that it will recertify that Iran is complying with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal. Under the agreement, the State Department must update Congress on Iran’s compliance every 90 days.

Though Trump did not want to certify in April or recertify in July but was persuaded on condition his team come back with a new strategy to confront Tehran.

In an hourlong meeting last week, for example, Trump spent 55 minutes telling some of his highest-ranking security advisers that he wanted to abandon the Iran deal.
But top Trump administration members, including Defense Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and national security adviser H.R. McMaster, pressed the president to maintain the agreement for now.

Global institutions like the United Nations and the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, are generally supportive of the Iran deal and its certifications by the Trump administration and the trend is expected to continue.

Under U.S. law, the Department of State must notify Congress every 90 days of Iran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal. Monday, July 17, was the deadline. July 18 is a different target date.
