US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker says that progress is being made with Democratic lawmakers in Congress, as well as European allies, on legislation to “fix” the Iran nuclear deal without violating its terms.
“We’ve gotten to a really good place; now the question is can we get there fully,” Corker told reporters on Tuesday.
Trump must decide by January 12 whether he will re-certify the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, including the United States.
Trump has called the agreement an “embarrassment” to the US and “the worst deal ever negotiated.”
Trump will also have to decide whether to continue waiving sanctions lifted as part of the deal. Failure to continue waiving sanctions would likely be seen by Iran as a violation, leading to the agreement’s death.
