His decision will keep the 2015 nuclear deal alive for the time being.

At the same time the United States imposed fresh sanctions on 14 individuals and entities over alleged rights abuses.

President Trump said the US will uphold the Iran nuclear deal.

The prospect of a U.S. withdrawal from the Iran deal "will deliver a very serious blow to the whole system of worldwide agreements and to the enhancing of the nuclear nonproliferation regime", he added.

What are the new sanctions?

"AIPAC appreciates the Trump administration's decision today to sanction additional individuals and entities that support Iran's illicit activities and violations of human rights", the pro-Israel lobby said in a statement. The Treasury Department placed sanctions on the head of the Iranian judiciary and a notorious prison.

The new strategy is likely to accelerate tensions between the USA and Iran, which received significant global sanctions relief after the 2015 nuclear agreement was not signed.

According to anonymous officials on a conference call with various reporters, Trump will not issue any more waivers after Friday unless specific fixes are made to the Iran deal. But it is the final time he plans to do so, they warned, adding Trump wants to negotiate a new pact with European allies that would re-impose sanctions on Iran if its government violates terms produced by those desired talks.

"Iran is prepared for the worst-case scenario concerning the nuclear deal, internationally known as JCPOA", Majid Takht Ravanchi, Iranian deputy foreign minister for European and American affairs, was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has responded to US President Donald Trump's ultimatum regarding the nuclear deal.

That balance is aimed at satisfying Trump's demand to raise pressure on Iran, while not embarking on a frontal assault on the most central trade-offs of the nuclear agreement. "Staying in this deal, which is a strong one, is vital to enhancing America's, and the world's, security, and avoiding a nuclear arms race in the Middle East".

In return, decades of worldwide and United States nuclear-related sanctions were suspended.

The US Congress requires the president to approve sanctions waivers related to the deal - signed by Iran, the US, the UK, Russia, France, Germany, China and the European Union - every 120 days.

What does Mr Trump want to change?

"Instead I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw", he added.

He is demanding Iran allow immediate inspections at nuclear sites on request, and that so-called "sunset clauses", which see the restrictions on nuclear development relax after ten years, be removed. Russian Federation and China are adamantly opposed to renegotiating the deal, as is Iran.

"This is the last time he'll issue waivers unless they reach an agreement", senior White House officials said.
