In an interview with DW, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday that her government had a "clear disagreement with Trump over North Korea".

Iran's president also highlighted Tehran's constructive role in fight against regional terrorism and said the country is ready to establish good relations with the United Kingdom in war on terror.

"We can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building risky missiles, and we can not abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program", Trump said late on September 19, as he slammed the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Soon after the second recertification, Trump told The Wall Street Journal that he "personally" would expect Iran to be declared noncompliant in October. The deal "belongs to the global community in its entirety, and not to only one or two countries".

"If we withdraw from the agreement with Iran, then Iran will immediately build nuclear weapons and we'll have North Korea with nuclear weapons and Iran with nuclear weapons ... and it's going to anger our European allies who negotiated this deal with us", Richardson said. On Wednesday, he said "I have decided" whether the USA will continue to abide by the deal, but he declined to elaborate.

On Wednesday, the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said Trump's speech indicated his unhappiness but not a decision to abandon the accord.

"Well, I think that's just common sense", Haley said.

It was the first meeting between the ministers of iran and u.s. foreign Affairs since the arrival of Donald Trump at the White House in January. "From the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean, from Tehran to Tartus, an Iranian curtain is descending across the Middle East", Netanyahu said, claiming that "those who threaten Israel with annihilation put themselves in mortal peril".

The editorial stated that Iran has been "in technical compliance" with the agreement, according to reports from the United Nations nuclear watchdog - the International Atomic Energy Agency.

But when asked for details he responded only: "I'll let you know what the decision is".

Rouhani said "the world will have lost a great opportunity, but such unfortunate behavior will never impede Iran's course of progress and advancement".

Haley spoke ahead of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's United Nations speech in which he is expected to respond to Trump's accusations that Iran exports "violence, bloodshed and chaos". Trump attacked not only North Korea but also Iran and Venezuela as "rogue nations".
