"It took 13 years of a nuclear standoff with Iran to get a deal", said Ali Vaez, Iran project director at the International Crisis Group.

US and Israeli officials familiar with the documents say there's far more that Netanyahu didn't disclose - revealing Iranian research sites, key scientific and technical personnel, and other information that should allow better insight into the Iranian nuclear effort - and make it easier to strengthen and enforce the 2015 agreement. "So the deal that was made was made on things that weren't accurate, and we have a big problem with that".

The United States likely persuaded Israel into doctoring and framing intelligence Iraq War-style in a bid to undermine the Iran nuclear accord and pave the road for a U.S. invasion, analysts told Sputnik.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has questioned the legitimacy of efforts by the United States and France to change the nuclear deal with his country. That, they argue, is why a deal with restrictions and inspections was needed.

The nuclear agreement was signed in 2015 between the US, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and China on the one hand and Iran on the other.

That gives the Trump administration what it sees as a crucial advantage: Iran is abiding by the nuclear accord while now enjoying few of its potential benefits.

In fact, Netanyahu's presentation had been quietly coordinated with the White House. They both asked Trump to stay in the agreement, while building on it - as part of what Macron called "a mosaic" of accords to be negotiated with Iran. They did not enter into the nuclear agreement in good faith. The president would have to sign additional executive orders, and take other legal steps, to renew US sanctions on about 400 other formerly blacklisted Iranian entities and individuals. The goals would include restrictions on Iran's ballistic missiles and, if possible, on Iran's support for radicals throughout the Middle East.

A decision by Trump to end United States sanctions relief would all but sink the agreement and could trigger a backlash by Iran, which could resume its nuclear arms programme or "punish" United States allies in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon, diplomats said. The recent appointments of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton - two vociferous Iran hawks who were doggedly opposed to the deal - seem to make it all the more likely that Trump will follow through on his threats to scuttle the deal.

Iran was able to benefit immediately from the lifting of sanctions and it was given quick access to more than a billion dollars' worth of assets that have been frozen for the past few years.

But Zarif rebuked that notion as well as "the response from some Europeans", which he described as "offer [ing] the United States more concessions from our pocket". The impression in Tehran is that, instead of concentrating on Riyadh's attacks on civilians, world leaders have focused their attention on the number of Yemeni missiles, which they claim to have originated from Iran. But they do provide a ton of new information about Iranian lying, cheating and deception.
