As part of the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the US President must recertify Iran's adherence of the deal to US congress every three months in exchange for the removal of many global economic sanctions.
Two entities - the IRGC Aerospace Force Self Sufficiency Jihad Organization and the IRGC Research and Self Sufficiency Jehad Organization - were designated by the State Department for contributing to Iran's ballistic missile program.
The key issue with the United States, Zarif said, is over the sanctions that the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers requires to be lifted and the sanctions that remain on Iran over human rights and other issues.
The disagreement, rather, is between those who favor scuttling the deal altogether (strategist Steve Bannon, CIA director Mike Pompeo) and those who think the US can work to counter the Iranian regime most effectively by keeping the deal in place as leverage (Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis).
Zarif said this "creates the impression in Iran that the United States hostility toward Iran will never end".
The talking points also cite the arbitrary arrests of Americans visiting Iran and they slam the previous Obama administration for focusing on signing a nuclear deal at the price of ignoring Iranian activities in the Middle East.
During his run for the White House, Trumpcalled the Iran nuclear pact supported by his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, as "the worst deal ever negotiated".
The briefing was held in accordance with U.S. law determining that State Department must report to Congress regarding Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal every 90-day period, with the previous report made in April 2017.
On June 15, the US Senate passed a bill targeting Russian Federation and Iran with new sanctions.
The senior official told reporters the White House believes Iran remains one of the most risky governments, and cited as evidence Tehran's support for terrorism, continuing hostility to Israel, cyber attacks against the United States and numerous human rights abuses. Instead, senior Trump administration officials sought to emphasize their deep concerns about Iran's non-nuclear behavior and vowed that those transgressions won't go unpunished.
Hours after recertifying the Iran nuclear deal President Donald Trump decried as a candidate, his administration slapped new sanctions on the country in a bid to toughen the enforcement of Iran sanctions. Under the deal, multilateral United Nations sanctions against Iran have been largely removed, and it can purchase arms on the worldwide market more easily, as was evidenced when it purchased Russia's sophisticated S-300 air defense system previous year, according to website the National Interest. Donald Trump has been a long time critic of the 2015 deal.
"We do expect that we will be implementing new sanctions", he said. The Iran deal is succeeding, but hard-liners here are so determined to wreck it that they don't care.
The statement listed Iranian support for groups including Lebanon's Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas movement, the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad and Houthi rebels in Yemen.
THE WEEKLY STANDARD reported last week that the White House had chose to recertify Iranian compliance with the terms of the 2015 deal negotiated between the Obama administration and the Iranian government (cumbersomely known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA).
Most of the cabinet, however, recognizes what a bad idea this is, and how big of an global backlash the United States would face in withdrawing from the hard-negotiated nuclear deal.
