Iranian officials have stressed they will not reopen negotiations on the accord, which required Tehran to dismantle or destroy most of its nuclear infrastructure in exchange for easing of most worldwide sanctions.

"Trump's policy & today's announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement, maliciously violating its paras 26, 28 & 29. This is a last chance", Trump said in a statement, Efe reported.

Officials from major world powers and Iran meet roughly every three to four months to assess implementation of the deal, which is monitored by the world's nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Trump's declaration puts great pressure on Britain, France and Germany, the European signatories to nuclear pact with Iran.

Footage of the rescue showed parts of the Sanchi still aflame, its hull and superstructure completely stripped of paint. Rescuers stayed aboard less than 30 minutes but were able to recover the ship's data and video recordings, it said.

The most prominent new name on the Treasury sanctions blacklist, which forbids Americans from doing business with the targets, is the head of Iran's judiciary, Sadegh Amoli Larijani.

The other signatories to the deal - Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation - and the European Union, which oversaw the talks, were watching carefully. Trump is also waiving other USA penalties covered by the agreement, including on Iran's oil and gas sectors, which were up for renewal next week.

The Republican leader grudgingly agreed to sign sanctions waivers, ensuring Washington will live up to its commitments for another 120 days, but he cautioned it would be "for the last time".

He paired Friday's concession with other, targeted sanctions on Iran for human rights abuses and ballistic missile development.

On Friday, Trump again waived sanctions against Iran that were lifted as part of the landmark nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

"If at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately", he added. He said remaining in the pact will give Congress more time to come up with bipartisan legislation regarding Iran. He said he would only sign it if an Iranian refusal to allow United Nations inspectors to visit sites triggered an automatic re-imposition of US sanctions.

But Trump argues that his predecessor Barack Obama gave away too much to Iran in sanctions relief, without forcing the Islamic republic to end its ballistic missile program and support for militant groups.
