France condemns USA move to re-impose Iran sanctions

Europeans scramble to save Iran deal after Trump reneges

"The global community must remain vigilant against Iran's deceptive efforts to provide financial support to its terrorist proxies".

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal was not a decision that could be taken exclusively by the U.S. "We are on the right track. a lot will depend on what we can do in next few weeks", he said. Minister Zarif, in turn, said it had turned into a habit for USA government to violate worldwide law.

Amid conflicting messages from the U.S. administration, national security adviser John Bolton said that sanctions on European businesses were "possible" while secretary of state Mike Pompeo struck a more conciliatory note on Sunday, suggesting that the USA and its allies could strike a new deal.

Mr Le Drian has already described the USA sanctions as unacceptable, saying European business should not be required to pay for United States foreign policy decisions.

The agreement required Iran to significantly cut down its nuclear arms program to reduce the amount of economic sanctions imposed on it by the worldwide community.

Iranian officials have threatened to resume enrichment. "If the nuclear deal is to continue, the interests of the people of Iran must be assured".

Trump called the agreement unfair and doubted that it would limit the nuclear ambitions of Tehran.

"What was significant is that Zarif reaffirmed their will to stick to the agreement if we find a way to help them a little", a senior European diplomat said.

On the weekend, Iran attempted to keep the deal alive in a display of diplomacy.

The statement also cast doubt on the loyalty of the European sides of deal when it comes to interaction with Iran and said over the past years the European states have left no stone unturned to violate the Islamic Republic's interests. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif sets off on Saturday for talks in China, Russia and Europe to see what can be salvaged.

Iranian soldiers march in a parade held to mark the National Army Day in Tehran last month.

German companies had successfully invested by conducting its business in euros through a state-owned regional banking network without connections to the USA system.

The leaders of the 28 nations of the European Union plan to discuss their response to the USA pullout at a Wednesday summit in Bulgaria.

Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, which has pushed up the price of oil, thus benefiting Shell and other oil companies, threatens to put billions of dollars worth of trade in jeopardy.

President Trump's decision to pull out of the nuclear deal and Iran's missile exchanges with Israel are just ramping up the pressure in a country that's already dangerously close to boiling point.

The move follows the recent USA withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal explained by Washington by the alleged flows in the arrangement.

Tehran's chief diplomat embarked on the tour as regional tensions spiked just days after unprecedented Israeli strikes in Syria which a monitor said killed at least 11 Iranian fighters, triggering fears of a broader conflict between the two arch-enemies.

Annulment of the accord could tip the balance of power in favour of hardliners looking to constrain pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani's ability to open up to the West.

But she emphasised that numerous problems began long before Trump's move last Tuesday.

China offered to hold strategic talks with Iran but did not disclose whether Beijing might scale back imports in light of renewed USA sanctions. No regime loyalists would dare say it, especially to an American reporter, but Iranians are furious with their own government's failure to deliver basics like electricity, water and decent wages. "We don't have much to threaten the Americans".
