Donald Trump gives one ’last chance’ to save Iran nuclear deal

DONALD Trump has given one “last chance” to save the Iran nuclear deal after agreeing not to slap the country with fresh sanctions.

The US president grudgingly waived further economic measures against the Islamic Republic today after pressure from allies including the UK.

But Trump said it would be the last time he would do so unless the "terrible flaws" in the 2015 nuclear deal.

The Republican said in a statement: "This is a last chance.

"In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal.

"And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately."

While Trump approved a sanctions waiver, the Treasury Department decided to impose new, targeted sanctions against 14 Iranian entities and people.

Trump had lengthy discussions on Thursday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson anmd other top advisers about the deal, which was reached during Barack Obama’s presidency.

Trump will work with European partners on a follow-on agreement that enshrines certain triggers that the Iranian regime cannot exceed related to ballistic missiles, said a senior administration officials who briefed reporters on the decision.

One official said Trump would be open to remaining in a modified deal if it was made permanent.
