The Republican chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs committee said Wednesday the international nuclear deal with Iran should be strictly enforced, but did not call for an end to the agreement, saying Washington should work with allies.U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce as soon as Thursday a new strategy for Iran that could include a first step toward Washington exiting the agreement.Royce, like every other Republican in the U.S. Congress, opposed the nuclear agreement reached under President Barack Obama, a Democrat, in 2015, and signed by the United States, Iran, China, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and the European Union.Trump is expected to announce an "overall Iran strategy," including whether to decertify the international deal curbing Tehran's nuclear program ahead of an Oct. 15 deadline.If Trump declines to certify the Iran nuclear agreement, it would open a 60-day window in which United States congressional leaders could move quickly to reimpose sanctions on Tehran suspended under the agreement.
