Trump to Quit JCPOA if significant changes not made

TEHRAN, Mar. 12 (MNA) – US President Donald Trump told Israeli regime's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the United States would pull out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal if his demands to make "significant" changes to the agreement were not met.

The talks between Trump and Netanyahu took place in the White House on March 5.

During the meeting, the US president allegedly said that until now, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, the three EU signatories to the deal, only proposed "cosmetic changes" that he did not find satisfactory, the Axios news website reported.

Trump stressed he wanted that "significant changes" were made to the Iran deal itself, and not simply a supplemental agreement between the United States and the European countries, according to the website.

In July 2015, Iran and the P5+1 group of nations — the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany — signed the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action). The agreement stipulates a gradual lifting of sanctions imposed on Iran in exchange for Tehran maintaining the peaceful nature of its nuclear program.
