President Trump announced Friday afternoon that he would extend sanctions relief to Iran for one more 120-day period, thus keeping President Obama's nuclear deal alive.
A senior administration official saidTrump wants the 2015 Iran deal strengthened with a follow-on agreement in 120 days or the United States will unilaterally withdraw from the global pact.
Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that it would not accept any renegotiation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the 2015 nuclear deal, and promised a response to new us sanctions. Iran must allow "immediate inspections at all sites requested by global inspectors", he said, and "sunset" provisions imposing limits on Iran's nuclear program must not expire.
USA and other officials have complained that Iran's ballistic-missile program can easily be converted for nuclear use.
Trump said this is the last chance, and in the absence of an agreement, the U.S. would not remain a party to the deal.
A US official said on Wednesday that if Trump waived those sanctions, the administration would impose new, targeted measures against Iranian businesses and people.
On a tweet on Friday, Mohammed Javad Zarif, the foreign relations minister in Iran said that the U.S. must be in strict adherence to the terms of the deal just like what was expected of Tehran.
Trump's ultimatum on Friday puts pressure on Europeans - key backers and parties to the 2015 global agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program - to satisfy Trump, who wants the pact strengthened with a separate agreement within 120 days.

Iran's Foreign Ministry said Saturday that the Islamic republic will never succumb to pressure of the United States to renegotiate the 2015 nuclear deal.

Trump will next have to deal with these decisions in mid-May. It saw Iran agree to reduce uranium enrichment activity drastically, dispose of its enriched uranium stocks and modify a heavy water facility so it could not produce material suitable for a nuclear bomb.
