In an ominous meeting with reporters following a meeting with top USA military officials on Thursday, United States President Donald Trump said that the moment represented the "calm before the storm".

Since the Trump came into power, he desperately wants to remove the nuclear pact and get rid of the limits it imposes on the United States ability to exert more hostile policies against Iran.

One of the reporters again asked: "What storm, Mr. President?" "That is why we must put an end to Iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions". You will all hear about Iran very soon.

Media reports say Trump will make the announcement in a speech slated for October 12, but that the timing could change.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is fresh from verifying Iran's compliance as recently as last month, while other parties to the agreement are also on board, except the USA leader.

Iran has warned that the deal is not renegotiable - but added that if the other worldwide signatories remain on board it could be salvaged.

"You guys know what this represents?"

Trump is expected to announce his decision October 12, the Washington Post reported, but said he is expected to avoid recommending the USA reimpose sanctions on Iran.

Defense Secretary James Mattis told lawmakers Tuesday it is in the best intertest of USA national security to remain in the deal.

As part of the landmark 2015 deal, Tehran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities in exchange for relief from worldwide sanctions.

Journalists asked what he meant and Trump said: "It could be, the calm, the calm before the storm".
