News Story: Trump says Iran "not living up to the spirit" of 2015 nuclear deal

WASHINGTON, April 20 (Xinhua) -- Despite his administration's certification of Iran's compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday accused Iran of "not living up to the spirit" of the nuclear deal.

"They (Iranians) are doing a tremendous disservice to an agreement that was signed. It was a terrible agreement. It shouldn't have been signed," said Trump here at a joint press conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

When asked by a reporter whether the White House had any reasons to suspect that Iran was cheating on the nuclear deal, Trump appeared to ignore the question, answering only that his administration was analyzing the 2015 nuclear deal.
