The US secretary of state has said the administration of Donald Trump is working with key lawmakers on a legislative fix which clears the path for Washington to stay in the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers.
Rex Tillerson added that the changes to the US law could come as early as next week or shortly thereafter. Tillerson said the administration was speaking with congressional leaders on a very active basis about a fix. He suggested that the US president might be inclined to preserve the deal by waiving sanctions again on January 12. In October, Trump declined to certify Iran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear agreement, saying the deal wasn’t in America’s national interests.
