Asked about the possibility that US President Donald Trump could decide to pull out of the deal, Steinitz said: "I would prefer a fixed version of the agreement, with changes in the length of the agreement and its surveillance".
Without mentioning Trump by name, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif appeared to tweet a response to the President's comments Tuesday.
U.S. President Donald Trump, who has blasted the 2015 nuclear deal as "the worst deal ever negotiated", recently chose to extend a waiver on nuclear sanctions that were imposed on Iran but made clear it would be the last time he will do so and ordered European allies and Congress to work with him to fix "the disastrous flaws" in the 2015 deal or Washington would withdraw. "A sentiment that is particularly meaningful for so many Iranians who have come to our country in recent decades to make a new start in a free land".
Iran's semi-official PressTV news agency wrote that according to Araqchi, these proposed sanctions would "affect the very existence of the nuclear agreement".

Britain, France and Germany have proposed fresh European Union sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missiles and its role in Syria's war, according to a confidential document, Reuters reported last week. "We must not however exclude Iran's responsibility in ballistic missile proliferation and its highly questionable role throughout the Middle East region", he said.
However, Reuters noted that the obtained document expresses concern at "transfers of Iranian missiles and missile technology" to Syria and allies of Tehran, such as Houthi rebels in Yemen and Lebanon's Iran-backed Shi'ite Hezbollah.
"As alleged, Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad created a network of front companies and foreign bank accounts to mask Iranian business dealings in Venezuela and evade US sanctions", Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement.
They said that Sadr took steps as part of the project to evade USA economic sanctions by concealing the role of Iran and Iranian parties in payments sent through the US banking system. Iran denies it is in violation of any United Nations resolutions and categorically rules out any negotiations on its missile program.
