[The nuclear deal, aka the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA] merely hit the pause button temporarily on those aspects of Iran's nuclear program that it had already perfected - and, as [Salehi's] threats underscore, could be easily restarted-while leaving Tehran with the time and space to develop technologies that it hadn't perfected such as advanced centrifuges and missiles.

Gholamreza Ansari, a member of the Tehran City Council, said on Monday that the USA will be harmed if it withdraws from the 2015 nuclear deal.

The Republican president said they must agree to "fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", which was agreed to under his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, or he would refuse to extend USA sanctions relief on Iran.

He added Iran will respond within a week if the U.S. withdraws from the deal and that Washington will surely regret it. USA sanctions will resume unless Trump issues new "waivers" to suspend them on May 12. "Our response will be stronger than what they imagine and they would see that within a week". His threats reveal what many deal skeptics have long argued: "unless the JCPOA is fixed, Iran has pathways to dozens of nuclear-tipped missiles capable of striking USA forces, United States allies, and eventually the U.S. homeland".

France, Britain and Germany are seeking to persuade their European Union partners to back new sanctions on Iran, as a way to persuade Trump to stick with the nuclear deal curbed on Iran's nuclear activities in return for sanctions relief.

According to Reuters, Iran promises to ramp up its nuclear program if the deal collapses, though many feel as though the deal has done little to diminish Iran's nuclear efforts anyway.
