President Trump says there 'might be an escalation' between US, Iran

Germany charges Iranian ‘diplomat’ in terror plot

The NCRI identified the husband as Amir Sadouni, saying that he worked in a shipping company that operated between Belgium and the Netherlands, while it identified his wife as Nasim Naami, and claimed that the pair had infiltrated the NCRI on behalf of the Iranian regime.

Pompeo, who has been attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels flew in from Abu Dhabi, where he discussed Iran with leaders of the United Arab Emirates.

The United States began earnest efforts to isolate Iran economically in May, after President Donald Trump withdrew from a landmark nuclear deal that the administration of his predecessor, Barack Obama, and the governments of five other countries had spent years negotiating.

The Paris rally by the National Council of Resistance of Iran was attended by Trump's personal lawyer, former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, and former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who both urged "regime change" in Iran. However, he added, the country had begun "treating us with much more respect right now than they did in the past". "But they're feeling a lot of pain right now", Trump said.

"A plot by the religious dictatorship ruling Iran to carry out a terrorist attack against the grand gathering of the Iranian Resistance in Villepinte was foiled", Shahin Gobadi spokesman for NCRI said in a statement.

As the USA mobilizes support for a renewed effort to isolate Iran and impose sanctions on that country, it is highlighting Iran's support for terrorism. "It's our responsibility to stop it".

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi dismissed as "ludicrous" a recent USA allegation that Iranian embassies are involved in terror attacks in Europe, Press TV reported on Wednesday.

It is backed by a 2,100mAh battery which is much smaller than the 2,800mAh battery on the Moto E5 Play . There is 16GB of internal storage that can be further expandable up to 128GB using a MicroSD card slot.

The suspect was one of several people detained in Germany, Belgium and France who had allegedly planned to bomb a rally held by a controversial exiled Iranian group near Paris on 30 June. The envoy's arrest in Germany came after a couple with Iranian roots was stopped in Belgium and authorities reported finding powerful explosives in their vehicle.

A French court on Wednesday approved the extradition of a suspect in an alleged bomb plot against an Iranian opposition rally to Belgium.

Iran denies involvement and contends the allegations against its diplomat are meant to damage its relations with the European Union.

German prosecutors say they have charged an Iranian diplomat with activity as a foreign agent and conspiracy to commit murder.

Belgian authorities also accuse Assadi of being part of the alleged plot reportedly aimed at setting off explosives at a huge annual rally of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq group, or MEK, in neighboring France.

German authorities said Assadi was suspected of having given the couple a device containing 500 grams of the explosive TATP.

Several British MPs and senior USA politicians were present at the event.
