WASHINGTON.- US President Donald Trump said today Iran "is not meeting the spirit" of the nuclear deal reached in 2015 by six powers.

Nevertheless, his government confirmed this week that Tehran has so far respected its commitments under the multilateral pact.

"We are analyzing it very carefully, and we will soon say something important about this," Trump added at a press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, after their meeting at the White House.

His government has ordered a 90-day review of the nuclear deal, led by the White House National Security Council, the State Department announced this week.

"They (iranians) are doing a big damage to the deal signed. It was a terrible agreement, it should never have been signed, and it should not have been negotiated in the way it was negotiated," Trump alleged when asked about the subject during the press conference.

On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson certified to US House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan that the Islamic Republic is complying with the terms of the deal.
