(CNSNews.com) – On the eve of the deadline for President Trump to grade Iranian compliance with the nuclear deal, Iran’s foreign minister accused him of violating the accord, while the administration called on the regime to release U.S. citizens held on “fabricated” security charges.

The raised rhetoric comes three months into an administration review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal, and at a time when JCPOA critics in Congress are urging Trump to determine that Iran is not abiding by its commitments.

Violation - Letter - JCPOA - Zarif - US

Calling that a violation of the “letter” of the JCPOA, Zarif added that the U.S. “needs to bring itself into compliance with its party of the obligation under the deal.”

Then-Secretary of State John Kerry in May 2016 declared Iran, with some exceptions, to be “open for business.”
