Iran consented to restraints for its atomic program in trade for lifting some sanctions as a component of the bargain.
Trump has before dismissed the deal as "the worst and most one-sided transaction Washington has ever entered into". "In a speech in Tehran, the Supreme Leader Khamenei declared that Iran's regional policies are not up for discussion and that the United States and European countries do not have any right to conduct negotiations with Iran concerning its presence in the Middle East".
