Announcement after negotiations in Lausanne - Iran Talks

After much ambiguity, it appears that the Trump administration is committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). President Trump will, however, direct an interagency review of the agreement to investigate whether the lifting of economic sanctions on Iran, as specified by JCPOA, is in the US national interest. Secretary of State Tillerson announced last week that Iran is complying with the agreement but persists as a state sponsor of terror. Addressing the latter appears to be the administration’s current goal regarding Iran.
