Trump Demands on Nuclear Deal UnacceptableTrump Demands on Nuclear Deal Unacceptable

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Saturday that demands by US President Donald Trump to change Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers were unacceptable.
Zarif made the remarks on Saturday in Moscow, where he attended trilateral talks on the conflict in Syria alongside Russia and Turkey, Reuters reported.
Trump has said unless European allies fix the "terrible flaws" in the Iran nuclear deal by May 12, he will refuse to extend US sanctions relief for Iran–a move that probably kills the deal.
In recent days, the minister has repeatedly warned against the consequences if Trump attempts to leave the historic 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
Speaking to reporters in New York last week, Zarif said the United States has failed to implement its side of the nuclear pact between Iran and six major powers.
