United Nations to Trump: Don't walk away from Iran nuclear deal

But the tone has changed, with leaders now suggesting that Iran wouldn't have much incentive to remain bound to the accord if the USA left with the intention to rally its allies in the region and reimpose sanctions. It appeared to contradict findings by global inspectors who have found Iran to be in compliance with the nuclear deal signed in 2015.

Iran intensified its criticism of President Donald Trump days before he decides whether to withdraw the USA from the 2015 nuclear deal that lifted punishing sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Trump has given the European signatories a May 12 deadline to fix what he calls the "terrible flaws" in the deal, threatening to effectively pull Washington out by refusing to extend waivers on USA sanctions if they do not do so.

This comes a day after when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed that the Iran nuclear deal is based on lies and that Iranian officials were "brazenly lying" when they said Iran wasn't pursuing nuclear weapons.

The hawkish premier claimed that he had new "proof" via captured documents that Iran had developed a nuclear weapons plan, which could be activated at any time.

Macron, who met Trump in Washington last week to try to convince him to not walk away, admitted Wednesday he still did not know what decision the USA leader would take.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned of "dangerous times" as US President Donald Trump considers whether to remain in or leave the worldwide deal that seeks to rein in Iran's nuclear weapons programme.

Toronto van attack: What is an 'incel'?

Johnson defended "verification provisions" in the landmark deal with Iran and "intrusive inspections" by the IAEA as good reasons to keep the agreement in place. "So I think we should separate things".

Trump has said he will pull out of the pact if amendments are not made, including a proposal to limit Iran's ballistic missile program, which Iran has maintained is a defensive deterrent.

Technically, Trump must decide by May 12 whether to renew "waivers" suspending some of the USA sanctions on Iran. "Iran accepts the nuclear agreement as it has been prepared and will not accept adding or removing anything", he said. One of the White House officials who spoke on condition of anonymity said it was possible Trump will end up with a decision that "is not a full pullout" but was unable to describe what that might look like.

"Every detail PM Netanyahu presented yesterday was every reason the world came together to apply years of sanctions and negotiate the Iran nuclear agreement - because the threat was real and had to be stopped", Kerry wrote on Tuesday.

Iran denies seek to build a nuclear weapon, or ever breaching the 2015 agreement.

Meanwhile, the United Nations atomic watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency rebutted Netanyahu's accusations in a statement on May 1, saying that the 2015 report "stated that the agency had no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009". Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has called into question the legitimacy of the USA and Israel making moves to have the deal scrapped after it gained the consensus of five world powers in 2015 in what was widely regarded at the time as a significant diplomatic victory in the global community.
