Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif branded Washington "unreliable" Sunday in response to threats over the future of a nuclear deal with Iran.The deal, agreed in 2015 between Iran and six world powers -- the United States, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany -- lifts economic sanctions put in place in 2005 in exchange for curbs to Tehran's nuclear program.The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is responsible for verifying that Iran meets the terms of the agreement.Zarif brushed off the threat, saying Washington cannot act alone to end the agreement.The foreign minister added that Donald Trump's certification of whether Iran is abiding by the deal -- due mid-October -- is an "internal procedure" that in itself does not endanger the agreement.
