The abrogation of the nuclear deal would lend a tremendous blow to the worldwide credibility of major powers that signed the deal with Iran. The document has been shared with officials in the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers in Congress, sources familiar with the memo told Foreign Policy.
Even as the administration prepared to waive the oil-related sanctions, the Treasury Department announced new sanctions on 11 entities and individuals for "engaging in support of designated Iranian actors or malicious cyber-enabled activity", including two entities based in Ukraine.
The secretary of state and other top administration officials believe remaining in the deal would ultimately be better than quitting it because Iran is widely seen to be complying with the letter of the agreement it reached with the USA and five other world powers, according to the people, who asked not to be identified discussing diplomatic efforts.

"Establishing a credible threat of a total USA financial embargo in-waiting would enhance US diplomatic leverage to curb Iranian illicit behavior and allow for a period of further evaluation at the end of the next 90-day period". "It seeks to bring about a change in the Iranian regime's behavior".
The proposal is created to address "a range of concerns about decertification, including the big "what happens next" question", said the source who had discussed the memo with congressional offices.
Iran deal opponents inside and outside the administration argue that Tehran's full compliance is unproven, particularly on allowing nuclear inspections at military sites.
Colin Kahl, who served as an assistant to former USA president Barack Obama and national security adviser to former vice president Joe Biden, said the Iranians will maintain its "near-term strategy" of trying to drive a wedge between the United States and Europe. But reinstating sanctions would violate the U.S.'s terms - and effectively tear up the agreement. He also said that upholding the Iran nuclear agreement was important as the global community seeks to grapple with the North Korean nuclear threat.
