Pompeo seeking 'strong cooperation' with Europeans on Iran

French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean Yves Le Drian leaves the Elysee Presidential palace in Paris

In a separate interview on CNN's "State of the Union, " he said Iran's economic condition is "really quite shaky, " so the impact of sanctions "could be dramatic".

Basravi said the Rouhani government's "political health ... hangs in the balance" as the administration has "married itself to this deal and championed it as the answer to all" of the country's economic woes.

Last year, Ireland exported €143.2 million worth of goods and services to Iran, more than double the level in the previous year.

"The Europeans have between 45 and 60 days to give the necessary guarantees to safeguard Iranian interests and compensate the damages caused by the U.S. pullout", Icana.ir reported.

Europeans have sought to play down expectations of Tuesday's meeting, stressing the enormous challenge of finding a way around United States sanctions punishing foreign businesses trading with Iran, which have global reach. "It depends on the conduct of other governments".

Describing the agreement - pushed by his predecessor, Barack Obama - as "a frightful one-sided deal that should never, ever have been made", Trump warned that "any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could be strongly sanctioned".

Britain continues to believe that the Iran nuclear deal "has value" despite the USA walking away from it, Boris Johnson said as he arrived in Brussels for talks with his French and German counterparts.

I wonder why they're still treating him with kid gloves?

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington still wants to work with its European partners on an agreement to counter Iran's "malign behavior" Sunday despite its withdrawal from a landmark nuclear deal.

MS could be the next state to see teachers go on strike, according to analysis by the Brookings Institution. CMS says North Carolina is 43rd in the nation when it comes to per-pupil expenditures.

Germany's minister for economic affairs, Peter Altmaier, said on Sunday that Berlin would try to "persuade the United States government to change its behavior". "At this point", he reportedly declared, "we have to replace the United States, which as an worldwide actor has lost vigor, and because of it, in the long term, [has lost] influence".

Mr Le Maire said he was seeking concrete exemptions for countries already present in Iran, including Renault, Total, Sanofi, Danone and Peugeot.

In the wake of the US President's controversial decision, Mr Johnson told the House of Commons that Britain "has no intention of walking away" from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Mrs Merkel, speaking in the western German city of Muenster last Friday, said that Mr Trump's latest blow to transatlantic relations, on top of his withdrawal from the Paris climate accord and trade disputes, made clear that the world's multilateral institutions are "in real crisis".

After long negotiations, Iran had agreed in July 2015 to freeze its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of punishing global sanctions.

Wang said China will take an "objective, fair and responsible attitude, keep communication and cooperation with all parties concerned, and continue to work to maintain the (Iran nuclear) deal".

She said: "Boris Johnson will be here in Brussels together with the foreign ministers of Germany and France to work together to preserve a deal we have achieved together - also with Russian Federation and China - and we will save it together". "I think that will sink in and we'll see what happens then".

Germany said it will spend the next few months trying to persuade Washington to change its mind.

"Yesterday, we witnessed a very unsafe behavior from the side of the same regime towards Jerusalem", he said while commenting on the expected relocation of the USA embassy. The conditions Washington has set for Tehran to meet are utterly unrealistic.
