WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Nauert said part of the goal of the JCPOA is to contribute to regional and international peace and security.
"We have sent off the notes to Congress certifying that Iran is complying with the JCPOA. However, the United States firmly believes that it is in violation of the spirit of the agreement," Nauert told reporters.
"We believe that some of the actions that the Iranian government has been involved with undermines that stated goal of regional and international peace and security," she added.
Under the terms of the agreement, nuclear-related sanctions on Iran were lifted in exchange for assurances Tehran’s nuclear program would remain peaceful.
