Rhetoric over United States exit from Iran deal rises amid threat of sanctions

Reacting to Trump's decision, Tehran said it would for now stay in the deal, pending talks with Russia, China and the three European signatories before coming up with a decision on the future of the deal.

France has slammed an "unacceptable" the USA move to re-impose sanctions on companies trading with Iran following President Donald Trump's decision to dump the landmark 2015 deal that sought to curb Tehran's nuclear programme.

Roth made the comments in Brussels ahead of a meeting due to take place there between Iran, France, Germany and Britain on Tuesday to discuss the nuclear deal.

U.S. President Donald Trump's pullout from the 2015 nuclear deal has upset Washington's European allies, cast uncertainty over global oil supplies and raised the risk of conflict in the Middle East.

From the economic perspective, watch for how European companies like Renault, Volkswagen and Fiat-Chrysler with plans to invest in Iran react to U.S. plans to resume sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

They were headed to the scenic Papikondalu, or "Papi Hills" in the West Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh . There were 20 people on the boat when it capsized and 10 of them including two women swam to safety.

"This was part of the flaw of the deal to entice Europe and the United States into economic relations with Iran that eventually would have worked against really holding Iran accountable for violations of the deal".

Iranian soldiers march in a parade held to mark the National Army Day in Tehran last month. Other officials called for putting "more teeth into talks with Washington", and asked, "Can't we defend what our own interests are?"

They try to reason with the nightmare caricature of Yankee chauvinism; then to flatter to him; finally, they beg him, as though asking the USA not to sabotage its own interests is some kind of favor. "Its ballistic missile program, which continued essentially unchecked, was proof that what they were seeking was delivery systems for the nuclear weapons", Bolton told CNN.

"This was an agreement which was deliberately kept narrow to deal with Iran's nuclear program".

European diplomats acknowledged that the EU support, however honest, risked looking hollow after Trump reimposed an array of wide sanctions last week on Iran that will hit European companies investing there. "It's reminiscent of the saying attributed to Vladimir Lenin that the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we'll hang them", he said.

The US ambassador in Berlin, Richard Grenell, said firms should question the morality of doing business with Iran.

Merkel said the Europeans aren't "blind" to threats posed by Iran's activities in Syria to Israel, for example.

The challenge for Rouhani is to maintain his diplomatic efforts in the face of mounting challenges at home, where Iranians were already suffering high unemployment and inflation before Trump's decision.

Ushakov said Putin will discuss the US withdrawal from the Iranian deal with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, who are set to visit Russian Federation later this month.

Le Maire proposed creating a European body that would have the same kind of powers that the U.S. Justice Department has to punish foreign companies for their trade practices. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has constantly maintained that Iran is sticking to the terms of the agreement and is not cheating, a fact independently verified by the USA military as well.
