Europe Steps Up Efforts to Salvage Iran Accord Ditched by Trump

He said: "Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States".

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that the United States had failed to reach an agreement with the European nations on the historic Iran nuclear deal.

In a tweet on Sunday, Trump wrote: "Remember how badly Iran was behaving with the Iran Deal in place".

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said withdrawing from the 2015 accord wasn't aimed at Europeans, but he didn't rule out the USA imposing sanctions on entities that continue to do business with Iran, even as efforts continue to strike a new deal.

Maas acknowledged that they did not have the means to provide assurances for companies planning to do business with Iran.

USA treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin said: "The Iranian regime and its central bank have abused access to entities in the UAE to acquire United States dollars to fund the IRGC-QF's malign activities, including to fund and arm its regional proxy groups, by concealing the objective for which the U.S. dollars were acquired".

Israel and Iran engaged in an extensive military exchange on the heels of Trump's decision to leave the deal.

"At all levels, we are underlining the importance of preserving this agreement", Yuri Ushakov, a Kremlin foreign-policy aide, told reporters in Moscow on Friday. The announcement triggered US plans to reimpose sanctions on the Islamic Republic within roughly three to six months.

Germany's minister for economic affairs Peter Altmaier said last week that Berlin will try to "persuade the USA government to change its behaviour". But in an interview aired on the ABC programme "This Week", Bolton said, "That's not the policy of the administration".

As a private citizen, Bolton in the past has suggested that the United States push for a change in government in Iran.

In the CNN interview, Bolton did not respond directly when asked whether Trump might seek "regime change" in Iran, or whether the USA military would be ordered to make a preemptive strike against any Iranian nuclear facility.

Bolton said Europe was still digesting Trump's move last week.

"I'm not the national security decision-maker", Bolton said, adding that Trump "makes the decision and the advice that I give him is between us". "Europeans are going to face the effective United States sanctions, already are really, because much of what they would like to sell to Iran involves USA technology, for which the licenses will not be available".

"And they may try to [stay in the deal], in part because I think despite President Trump's complete consistency in opposition to the deal ... many people, including, apparently, former Secretary of State John KerryJohn Forbes KerryRomney: Those who mock McCain "humiliate themselves" Another battle between politics and common sense Trump hasn't earned a Nobel, but the Peshmerga have MORE, thought that we never would get out of it", Bolton said.
