During the last meeting of Rouhani's first cabinet, the president pointed to the benefits of the nuclear agreement, or the JCPOA, and warned against any breach of it.

"I don't think they're living up to the spirit of the agreement", Trump said, signaling that he would very much like to declare Tehran noncompliant with the accord.

The head of Britain-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group, Richard Bacon, reiterated London's commitment to the 2015 nuclear deal and criticized the USA administration's hawkish policy toward Iran and the worldwide pact.

US and United Nations watchdogs monitoring compliance with the agreement have found Iran has adhered to the deal.

Under the agreement, limits were put on Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all nuclear-related bans against the Islamic Republic.

On Sunday, Iran's parliament voted in favor of a bill to increase spending on the country's ballistic missile program and the special forces arm of the Revolutionary Guard, known as the Quds Force.

He voiced Britain's enthusiasm for closer cooperation with Iran, despite the USA antagonistic stance evidenced by frequent rounds of new sanctions imposed on Iran over the past few months.

Iran's foreign minister has accused U.S. President Donald Trump of showing "bad faith" over the 2015 nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers.

"POTUS always wanted to kill JCPOA".

"Bad faith on top of US violating the letter & spirit" of the agreement, he also wrote.

"To avoid isolation, he's trying to blame it on Iran", he added.
