Iran stopped producing 20 percent enriched uranium and gave up the majority of its stockpile as part of the agreement with the United States, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation. He said the documents prove that Iran lied about the scope and sophistication of its program to build a nuclear weapon - a violation of the deal.

U.S President Donald Trump has criticized the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, which was negotiated under his predecessor, Barack Obama. Trump says Iran's behavior is "just not an acceptable situation".

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell looked absolutely flabbergasted Monday night as she read the latest statement from the White House on Iran's nuclear capabilities, a statement she told viewers was essentially a flat-out lie that contradicts previously acknowledged American intelligence findings.

"First, Iran lied about never having a nuclear weapons programme".

"Even after the deal, Iran continued to preserve and expand its nuclear weapons knowhow for future use".

"What we saw from Netanyahu was a childish play which we had also witnessed in previous years and also from the MKO terrorist group", Araghchi said, as quoted by the state-run IRNA news agency.

Tehran has denied ever seeking nuclear weapons and accuses its arch-foe Israel of stirring up world suspicions against it. His presentation came after he met visiting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday (April 29) and spoke with Trump by phone on Saturday (April 28).

"We were made aware of his plans", the official said.

Netanyahu on Monday accused Iran of continually expanding the range of its nuclear-capable missiles, violating its landmark deal to curb its nuclear program.

Trump has derided the 2015 agreement as "insane", partly because its restrictions on Iran's nuclear activities begin expiring in 2025. The evidence flies in the face of assurances from President Barack Obama, former members of his national security team, and worldwide leaders that the Iran nuclear deal will safely keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of the Iranians.

Mr Trump has signalled he will pull out of the agreement unless it is revised, but he faces intense pressure from European allies not to do so. The U.S. has reportedly verified its authenticity.

The pushback comes on the heels of the Israeli Prime Minister's scathing intelligence report; outlining to the world the extent to which the Iranian government "secretly moved" thousands of nuclear-related documents to "secret sites" throughout the Islamic Republic.

United Nations inspectors have certified Iran's compliance with the deal nine times, most recently in November.

"Netanyahu is telling us something we already knew - that Iran had a nuclear weapons program", Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, said on Twitter. Israel considers Iran to be its biggest threat, citing Tehran's hostile rhetoric, support for militants and growing influence in the region.

"The boy who can't stop crying wolf is at it again".

Iran's state IRNA news agency said Netanyahu was "famous for his ridiculous shows", while the semiofficial Fars agency called the press conference "a propaganda show".
