US President Trump has condemned Iran as a fanatical regime and refused to sign off an international nuclear deal. He said he was referring the deal to Congress and would consult allies on how to alter the deal. He accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism and said he would deny the regime "all paths to a nuclear weapon". International observers however say Iran has been in full compliance with the 2015 deal. Lawmakers have 60 days to decide whether to restore sanctions on Iran, a move that could unravel the Iran nuclear deal.
