United States accuses Iran of 'alarming provocations' amid nuclear tensions
Tillerson also noted that Iran funds insurgents in Syria as well as sends troops to fight in support of President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
But Tillerson is leaving open the possibility that the Trump administration will uphold it anyway.
Mr Tillerson said the Iran review would not only look at Tehran's compliance with the nuclear deal but also its actions in the Middle East. The White House will not, he said, adopt President Obama's failed approach of "strategic patience".
"It is their habit to unsettle people and nations", Tillerson said.
The administration says it is reviewing these accords and could still pull out of them. "The evidence is clear - Iran's provocative actions threaten the USA, the region and the world".
"It remains a leading state sponsor of terror, through many platforms and methods".
A picture taken on November 10, 2016 in the Iranian capital Tehran shows local newspapers displaying articles on U.S. president-elect Donald Trump a day after his election.
Tillerson's remarks come just a day after it was reported that the administration notified Congress that Iran was doing everything they're required to do under the agreement.
Yet with one exception - an Asia-Pacific trade deal that already had stalled in Congress - Trump's administration quietly has laid the groundwork to honor the global architecture of deals it has inherited. Tillerson's letter on Wednesday was the first such notification since Trump took office. "There's nothing wrong or inherently suspicious about that".
In February, the U.S. imposed fresh sanctions on Iran in response to a ballistic missile test, after then-national security advisor Michael Flynn said the White House was "putting Iran on notice". "We're analyzing it very carefully". Yet he pointedly stopped sort of telegraphing whether or not the USA would stay in.
"Every administration, when it doesn't know what the hell to do, reviews things", Slavin said. Digest it and tell me if it doesn't sound like exactly the sort of thing an administration would say before asking Congress for an AUMF. What are the chances of U.S not backing off? "So, Tehran would be well-advised not to overreact to whatever happens".
Trump also voiced optimism that the US had successfully enlisted China to try to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.
Iran helped to create and continues to fund Hezbollah, the Lebanese military and political organisation which the United States has listed as a terrorist organisation.
Mr Trump has described the landmark agreement as the "worst deal ever".
In exchange for relief from the sanctions that targeted its nuclear activity, Iran agreed to take a number of steps, including affirming that it would under no circumstances "seek, develop or acquire nuclear weapons". Iran is a potential threat to the world's peace.
