The French and German governments stressed the need for political independence from the White House as they took steps to safeguard the agreement which lifted economic sanctions against Iran in exchange for limits on the country's nuclear programme.
Mohammad Ali Jafari, head of the Revolutionary Guards, said the country could not rely on the West. The decision came after the U.S. pulled out from a nuclear ban agreement, which was made in 2015. Last week, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of continuing plans to pursue its nuclear program after unveiling documents obtained by Israeli intelligence.
But the United States ambassador in Berlin, Richard Grenell, said firms should question the morality of doing business with Iran.
The U.S. Treasury said on Tuesday that the United States would reimpose a wide array of Iran-related sanctions after the expiry of 90- and 180-day wind-down periods, including sanctions aimed at Iran's oil sector and transactions with its central bank. But President Barack Obama was elected by the majority of the citizens of this country, and he had the authority to negotiate with the heads of state of Iran, along with the leaders of other countries who were and remain allies of the United States.
In reaction to a Tweet last month by Trump that accused OPEC of "artificially" boosting oil prices, Zanganeh said "Trump is not honest about oil prices". Yet, sometimes reality forces a different approach, especially when dealing with a nation, Iran, that knows no compromise and whose motives are set on evil.
"He wanted to have an agreement, but he wanted to continue to undermine Iran and I think that's just a general pattern when it comes to Iran and the United States".
May's spokeswoman said May had told Trump that Britain and its European partners remained "firmly committed" to ensuring the deal was upheld as the best way to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.
Meanwhile, the Kremlin said that Russian Federation and its ex-Soviet allies will sign a free trade pact with Iran.
Iran and China have agreed to cooperate to maintain the Iranian nuclear deal. This will also hit India where it hurts the most. This in turn will lead to an increase in inflation and slow down economic growth in the US.
"If we accept that other major powers, including allies ... put themselves in a situation to decide our diplomacy, security for us, and sometimes even make us run the worst risks, then we are not more sovereign and we can not be more credible to public opinion", Macron said at an event in Germany, Thursday. Alongside China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Germany, the United States wanted Iran to halt their nuclear weapons program.
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told his Parliament that Britain will continue to respect the deal as long as global inspectors can verify Iran's compliance.
