US President Donald Trump reportedly told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a closed-door meeting at the White House last week that Washington would not show any flexibility on its demands for amending the Iran nuclear accord in negotiations with European co-signatories.

Trump told Netanyahu that he was seeking "significant changes" to the 2015 deal, but that so far European powers Germany, France, and the United Kingdom have so far only offered "cosmetic changes", a report published Sunday by the Axios news website said.

Additionally, Trump threatened to pull-out of the Iran deal - a threat he has repeatedly made throughout his tenure as president and a candidate - if the steps he is proposing are not taken. A large part of it was devoted to this issue. Earlier this year, the President waived sanctions to give our lawmakers and our allies time to act.

"I said that the nuclear agreement with Iran contains within it many dangers for the world, including the special danger of the nuclearisation of the West Asia", Netanyahu said, according to an statement.

The Iran nuclear deal was agreed to during the Obama administration.

Trump set May 12 as the deadline for reaching an agreement on how to change the Iran deal with the three European countries.
