Since the accession to power, Iran has adopted hostile policies, Mr Trump, who this nuclear agreement wrongly ordered in August last year, the first group of economic sanctions against Tehran.
The European Union, France, the United Kingdom and Germany, which signed the agreement with China and Russia to prevent Iran from acquiring atomic bombs, said she was sorry for the US decision. All of its sanctions were lifted as part of the nuclear business.

Mr Trump said that "the goal was to force the regime (Iran) to make a clear choice: either leaving its devastating behavior or pursuing an economic catastrophe."
New penalties impose sanctions by blocking all the countries or companies in the US market that continue to buy Iranian oil or trade with the Islamic Republic's banks.
"The goal is to deprive revenue in the world of death and destruction," said Mike Pompeo, as the United States attempts to stop the program. Iran's ballistics and influence in the Middle East.
However, for eight countries, Iran must continue to be allowed to buy oil for at least six months. The list of these countries will be known on Monday.
US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says the US wanted to cut Iranian financial institutions hit by the sanctions of the swift international banking system, which is an essential element of the financial system.
Despite hostility, Trump reiterates that he is ready to meet with Iranian leaders to negotiate a comprehensive agreement on 12 US conditions: nuclear weapons, much more powerful and lasting, and proliferation of missiles and destabilizing activities " From Tehran to the Middle East (Syria, Yemen, Lebanon …).
"We are ready to reach a new, more comprehensive agreement with Iran," Trump said on Friday.
But the Iranians have already rejected the dialogue with Washington. "There will be no negotiations with the United States," Ayatollah Khamenei said in August.
