(20 Apr 2017) President Donald Trump says Iran is not living up to the "spirit" of the nuclear agreement.
Trump says Iran is doing "a tremendous disservice" to the agreement brokered by the Obama administration.
The 2015 agreement by Iran and six other world powers ended some of the sanctions that had punished and isolated Iran for its nuclear program but maintained others dealing with ballistic missile research, terrorism, human rights violations and money laundering.
Trump spoke during a joint press conference Thursday with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Trump says the agreement was "a terrible agreement. It shouldn't have been signed."
He says his administration will have "something to say about" the Iran nuclear deal "in the not too distant future." He didn't elaborate.
Trump also said he is pressuring China to do more to dissuade the advancement of North Korea's nuclear agreement.
"I said you'll make a much better deal on trade if you get rid of this menace or you do something about the menace of North Korea," said Trump, speaking about his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
