Sources familiar with the matter stressed that the wider US policy toward Iran, and whether to preserve the deal that gave Tehran sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nuclear program, has yet to be decided.

The unsigned memo was written by Richard Goldberg, a former Republican congressional aide who has long advocated tough action against Iran. "In our view, Iran is clearly in default of these expectations" of the nuclear deal, he added.

But Johnson said it is important for Iran to see that economic benefits result from the nuclear deal. The document has been shared with officials in the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers in Congress, sources familiar with the memo told Foreign Policy.

While the White House finishes its Iran policy review, a vocal campaign against any possibility of decertifying the agreement is underway, led by Obama administration officials.

Under a congressional law separate from the deal, the president must certify to lawmakers every 90 days whether Iran is abiding by the deal and whether lifting sanctions remains is the country's national security interest.

Perhaps. But Iran negotiated the current nuclear deal only after the US imposed and enforced sanctions that cut its banking system off from the global economy and cut off its ability to export oil.

The United States targeted Iran-based Sadid Caran Saba Engineering Company (SABA) for sending or trying to send financial, material, technological or other support for the IRGC, the release said.

Shortly before the JCPOA was finalized, President Obama in April 2015 said Iran had "agreed to the most robust and intrusive inspections and transparency regime ever negotiated for any nuclear program in history". "Iran doesn't need the USA to accomplish its goals".

Thursday is the deadline for renewing that waiver. Congress could then issue sanctions that, according to the plan, would force everybody back to the table.

Amano declined to put a number to the so-called complementary access visits it has asked to carry out in Iran since the JCPOA's implementation day in January 2016, but he said there had been "many".

Iran's compliance has been repeatedly and consistently certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency and supported by the assessment of the USA intelligence community. "It's a sign that the debate is moving from whether to decertify to how to decertify".

For more than a decade before the JCPOA was concluded, Iran refused to allow the IAEA access to sites including one at Parchin, an installation near Tehran where the agency suspected the Iranians had tested high explosive components for a nuclear weapon. Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, last week laid out a scenario under which Trump would keep the U.S.in the deal but refuse to certify Iran's compliance with it, kicking the problem to Congress and forcing it to decide whether to reimpose sanctions that were eased under the agreement.
