Washington has announced that Iran is complying with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal and says it has extended sanctions relief. The White House, however, has ordered a full review of the agreement.

The White House has announced a full review of the 2015 decision to lift sanctions against Iran. The agreement to stop a series of painful economic penalties was a key component of the nuclear deal brokered by former President Barack Obama after decades of deep animosity between Washington and Tehran.

"President Donald J. Trump has directed a National Security Council-led interagency review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that will evaluate whether suspension of sanctions related to Iran …is vital to the security interests of the United States," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement.

Tillerson made his statement to Congress as part of an announcement that Iran had been found compliant with its end of the deal through April 18, a certification that must be made every 90 days. It was the first time the announcement had been issued since Trump took office in January.
