On January 12, Trump warned the USA would pull out of the agreement unless its "terrible flaws" were fixed -the so-called "sunset clauses" allowing Iran to gradually resume nuclear activities in the next decades.

A USA withdrawal probably would scrap the agreement - a chief foreign policy achievement for President Barack Obama - by reimposing a broad range of sanctions that isolate Iran from the global financial system.

AFTER MONTHS of incoherence, the Trump administration has taken a step toward a clear policy on Syria and its civil war.

"Sometimes we forget about the importance of our own relationship", said Rex Tillerson, who held talks with UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

He also condemned the embassy's new location in London amid fears of mass protests on the streets of the capital. Tillerson was nevertheless introduced to a number of diplomats as he was given a tour of the building.
