    US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has certified to the Congress that Iran is fulfilling its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) regarding its nuclear program, a US senior official told reporters.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Trump administration, however, is considering imposing new sanctions on Iran in the future, including those related to Tehran's missile program and human rights violations, the official added.

    "Secretary of State [Rex Tillerson] is in the process of certifying to the Congress that the conditions… have been met based on information available to the United States," the official said. "However, the secretary of state and the president [Donald Trump] intend to emphasize that Iran remains one of those dangerous threats."
