    The United States has been dead-set on throwing out the current agreements on the Iranian nuclear program, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Second Asian Department told Sputnik.

    "The US side has definitely decided to cancel the current agreements on the Iranian nuclear program," Zamir Kabulov said. "However, in case the US does not lift economic sanctions of Iran, the progress will be harder to achieve," he added.

    Meanwhile, last week, The Washington Post reported that the US president was expected to announce within a week that he would "decertify" the international nuclear deal with Iran because it was not in the US national interest.
