BAGHDAD The White House Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the nuclear deal with Iran was "based on false claims, because Tehran's nuclear program was more advanced, than was indicated at the time of the negotiation of the agreement in 2015 ".
"Iran has not dealt with the" sincerity "of the time of negotiation," she said in remarks made by the US official in the daily briefing on Iran's nuclear deal.
"The problem is that the agreement was made on the basis of completely false allegations, adding that Iran lied at the beginning," Sanders said. "
"The Iranians were dishonest, so the agreement was based on things that were not accurate, especially the fact that Iran's nuclear capabilities were much more advanced and sophisticated than they referred to," the Spokeswoman said.
"If the current agreement continues as it is, Iran's nuclear capabilities will reach a more advanced level within seven years," she said.
This comes after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented on Monday paper and electronic documents obtained by Israeli intelligence to confirm that Iran was lying when it said it had no nuclear weapons program.
In 2015, Iran signed an agreement on its nuclear program with the five permanent members of the Security Council (Russia, the United States, France, China and Britain) and Germany, which Israel strongly opposed.
The agreement stipulates Tehran's commitment to abandon at least 10 years of vital parts of its nuclear program, with the aim of preventing it from acquiring the capability to develop nuclear weapons in return for lifting sanctions.
US President Donald Trump has threatened to pull out of the nuclear deal by May 12 if Western countries fail to modify his "terrible flaws" while some European countries defend the deal and say they were committed to it.
