The American leader accused Tehran of enriching uranium and developing prohibited weapons in defiance of the terms of the nuclear deal.

Trump also said that if Tehran continues nuclear development, then problems await him, “with which he had not previously encountered.” As the American leader noted, Iran will have to conclude a new nuclear agreement, the US is ready for negotiations.
Iran and the six international mediators – Russia, the United States, Britain, China, France, Germany – in 2015 signed a document on the settlement of the Iranian nuclear problem.
The participants in the agreement adopted the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (VCPD). Its implementation removed from Tehran previously imposed economic and financial sanctions from the UN Security Council, the United States and the European Union, imposed due to nuclear development.
Trump repeatedly criticized the deal and accused Iran of violating the SVAP. In early January, the American leader said that the US would withdraw from the agreement if it was not changed.
At the same time, other mediators repeatedly warned the United States against such a move.
So, the French leader Emanuel Macron the day before said that the US refusal of a nuclear deal could lead to war.
