Trump waives Iran nuclear sanctions for the last time barring changes

President Trump on Friday decided once more to waive sanctions against Iran and thus live up to the Iran nuclear agreement, but his administration warned this would be the last waiver unless new conditions are agreed.

“This is the last such waiver he will issue,” a senior administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters.

That provided a sharp edge to what was otherwise good news for Iran, as Trump renewed the waiver that former President Barack Obama granted at the culmination of his team’s nuclear negotiations with the regime. But if he is not exiting the deal abruptly, Trump’s team made clear that he remains determined to withdraw in the coming months absent a series of policy victories with Iran.

The official said Trump would also be looking for a way to evolve the agreement with other countries.
