Iran, China agree to maintain nuclear deal

Iran, China agree to maintain nuclear deal

"Do we accept extraterritorial sanctions?"

However, Le Maire acknowledged he has "no illusions" that he'll get what he asked for.

Ultimately, there are different dimensions to this development, explains Khajehpour: "Obviously there will be more economic uncertainty because of this USA withdrawal".

France's foreign minister said Friday he had asked for exemptions or longer grace periods for the exit of French companies such as oil-and-gas giant Total SA and vehicle maker Peugeot SA that have returned to the Iranian market since the 2015 nuclear accord.

Britain, France, and Germany - along with Russian Federation and China - all have said they remain committed to honoring the deal and believe it remains the best way to ensure Iran does not resume development of nuclear weapons.

"Do we want to be vassals who obey decisions taken by the United States while clinging to the hem of their pants?"

European diplomats, speaking on background because they did not have authorization to talk otherwise, said on Tuesday that they felt no great urgency, which was just as well, given the difficulty of the task. Last month, 26 former top-ranking Israeli military and security officials signed a letter urging the United States to maintain the agreement, stating unequivocally that the deal is working and that a US decision to pull out would undermine not just USA security, but Israel's security as well.

Mike Pompeo, Trump's secretary of state, said on Sunday wealth created in Iran under the terms of the nuclear deal "drove Iranian malign activity" in the region.

European Union officials have indicated they may threaten similar measures to those that pressured then president Bill Clinton to give waivers to European companies under United States sanctions on countries such as Cuba during the 1990s.

Amazon just gave you a Whole Foods reason to get Prime
Whole Foods now has over 470 stores in the U.S., Canada and United Kingdom combined, but the majority - 463 - are in the U.S. Amazon is going to give 10% off on all sale items at Whole Foods supermarkets along with discounts on selected popular items.

Iran has said it would remain in the JCPOA for now, pending negotiations with the other signatories in the coming weeks before making a final decision on its future role in the agreement.

The website attributed the remarks to Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi as reported by Seyyed Hossein Naghavi, spokesman of parliament's foreign affairs commission. If they really care about their security, then they must realize it's actually threatened by Iran, even when they don't do anything and when they don't link their commercial interests to that shared security.

On Saturday evening French President Emmanuel Macron phoned Trump to "take stock of trade issues and discuss the situation in the Near and Middle East", the Elysee said in a statement. He declined to rule out sanctions against European firms.

Europe's options, however, are limited. Germany, France and the United Kingdom all implored the president to remain in the deal. Trump's strength was that he did not need unity, Beyer added. French exports to Iran doubled to 1.5 billion euros previous year, driven by sales of aircraft and automobile parts, according to customs data.

Volkswagen, the German automaker, has resumed exporting cars to Iran. Around 120 German firms have operations with their own staff in Iran, including industrial giant Siemens, and some 10,000 other German companies trade with Iran.

"We are ready to talk to all the companies concerned about what we can do to minimize the negative consequences", Altmaier told Deutschlandfunk radio. "That means, it is concretely about damage limitation".

Mohammad Javad Zarif's tour began two 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.

Trump's action will reinstate economic sanctions against Iran, pledge new ones and increase the risk of confrontation with an Iranian regime that has shown little interest in peaceful cooperation. "So far, they will benefit from higher prices", he said. Bild newspaper quoted him as saying.
