President Donald Trump on Friday called on America's European allies to help fix the "disastrous flaws" in the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, warning he will walk away from the agreement if his demand is not met.
The deal on Iran's nuclear program was reached between Iran and six worldwide mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.
"The president's decision is to waive once more the nuclear sanctions that the terms of the JCPOA require the United States to waive in order to remain in the deal", the White House official said. "And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately", Trump said in a statement. On October 13, 2017, the USA current President Donald Trump refused to confirm Iran was implementing the nuclear deal.
"In what we heard Friday, I don't see any invitation for Iran to enter dialogue", he said.
The Thursday meeting in Brussels is part of diplomacy on both sides of the Atlantic before deadlines related to the deal falling this month, including deciding whether to reimpose oil sanctions lifted under the deal.

He used an argon beam machine, an instrument created to seal bleeding blood vessels, to sear his initials "SB" into their livers. Bramhall told police he had "flicked his wrist for just a few seconds" to leave his signature on the patient.
"One of the things that should be noted, and it's often overlooked, is that the sanctions that were imposed on Iran's ballistic missile programs are still in place", he says.
The restrictions could hit some firms and individuals whose sanctions were previously scrapped.
The foreign ministers of Britain, Germany, France as well as Iran's Mohammad Javad Zarif, are expected to meet on Thursday morning with Mogherini, the EU's foreign policy chief. He is also demanding a permanent end to Iran's enrichment of fissile material at a grade sufficient for weapons use.
But they said he might also impose new, targeted sanctions on Iranian businesses and people allegedly involved in missile tests, supporting terrorism, and human rights abuses.
Under the terms of the landmark agreement the United States president must certify the deal every 90 days and pass sanction waivers every 120 days.

Trump is also seeking for a follow-on agreement with the European allies that will eliminate the "sunset" clauses in the current agreement, said senior Trump administration officials who briefed reporters on the decision on Friday afternoon.
"The U.S. government, like other parties to the deal, is obliged to fulfill all its obligations, and if it fails to comply with its obligations under false pretexts, it should be fully held accountable for the consequences", the foreign ministry said in its statement.
White House is working with Congress on a USA legislation, which seeks provisions to permanently prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and subject Iran's long-range missile program to severe sanctions.
Three months ago, Trump answered a congressional deadline by refusing to "certify" US participation in the deal.
But it is by no means clear if Congress can come up with a solution to revisit the deal within 120 days, in which case the USA may withdraw from the landmark deal.
