During his presidential campaign Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to "tear up" the Iranian Nuclear Deal, but after the election, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani claimed that there was "no possibility" of an end to the deal.
Russian Federation is Iran's ally in such regional conflicts as Syria's, which has turned into a hot issue of debate between Iran and the U.S.
But Mr Murphy does not expect Mr Trump to nullify the pact.
He called it "stupid", a "lopsided disgrace" and the "worst deal ever negotiated," railing against its time-limited restrictions on Iran's enrichment of uranium and other nuclear activity, and exaggerating the scale of US concessions.
But others appeared to waver, with some saying decisions on whether to join the Trump administration could depend on how the president-elect behaves during the transition and who he appoints to senior posts.
"Our stance was they have been and will certainly remain throughout this administration", agency spokesman Mark Toner said during a press briefing.
Trump's exact plans are vague, however, and a renegotiation would be hard.
"So if the deal is going to be with us in some fashion for some time", Berman continued, "we have to be thinking seriously about what comes next". In a previous article, other violations and reports of Iran's recent cheating and breaches of the nuclear agreement are laid out. In a USA Today op-ed in September of 2015 Trump said, "When I am elected president, I will renegotiate with Iran". Trump has questioned the value of the U.S.
Iran, the dominant Shi'ite Muslim power, supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and has dispatched teams to Syria to gather intelligence and train Syrian forces.
Iran violated one of the terms of its nuclear deal signed with six world powers by exceeding a limit on its heavy water stockpile, according to a report from United Nations monitors on Wednesday - the same day the rogue nation demanded the US stick to the deal, no matter what. But the accord rests on fragile ground, with powerful contingencies in Washington and Tehran vehemently opposed and looking for any excuse to break it apart.
A number of the signatories contacted by Reuters on Wednesday made clear that they were unswayed from their negative view of Trump and would not work for him.
"The United States no longer has the capacity to create Iranophobia and to create a consensus against Iran", he said.
After his inauguration, Trump would have the authority to revoke the executive agreement.
"The Americans seem to dislike the Islamic Republic of Iran's position, situation, capability and power", he told Fars.
GOP lawmakers are examining a slew of possible actions. The IAEA will also continue monitoring Iranian activities based on safeguards regulations, temporary implementation of the additional protocol and the JCPOA, the official name of the understanding that limits Iran's atomic program in exchange for the lifting global sanctions.
Last year's accord with world powers saw worldwide sanctions on Iran lifted in exchange for guarantees that it would not pursue a nuclear weapons capability. According to Russia's deputy foreign minister, they have been in close contact with Trump's staff throughout the campaign.
In February, a month after the deal went into effect, the agency noted for the first time that Iran had exceeded its allotted limit of heavy water. It has faced no punishment.
"Meanwhile, Iran could exploit such a U.S. move and threaten to, or actually stop, observing nuclear restraints", he added.
The Obama administration has been hamstrung.
