US President Donald Trump on 13 October refused to certify the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran signed in July 2015 by Iran and the E3/EU+3 (China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and the USA) and implemented in 2016. He said the new US strategy would "deny the Iranian regime all paths to a nuclear weapon". Trump’s administration said Iran had sought to "exploit loopholes and test the international community’s resolve" regarding JCPOA. However, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director-General Yukiya Amano told the agency's Board of Governors in September that Iran was implementing the deal as agreed. In response to the Trump’s decertification decision, the IAEA confirmed that Iran has adhered to the deal.
