Iran's top nuclear negotiator for its 2015 deal with international powers warned Thursday that the agreement was under threat unless foreign businesses and banks were able to trade freely in the country.Deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi told London's Chatham House that U.S. President Donald Trump's hostility towards the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was creating a "destructive atmosphere" that meant businesses were afraid of dealing with Iran.Under the JCPOA, sanctions were lifted in return for a commitment not to pursue a nuclear bomb, but Iran claims it is not reaping the rewards despite complying with the deal.Araghchi denied that Iran would be able to build nuclear weapons after these provisions expire in 10-15 years time and insisted that Iran would not consider making the restrictions permanent.
