Iran nuclear deal: Envoy starts diplomatic tour after USA withdrawal

Macron and Merkel in Aachen Germany

Iran's Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Beijing today on the first leg of a whirlwind diplomatic tour planned to rescue the nuclear deal left on the brink of collapse after the USA pulled out.

Zarif and Mogherini also conferred on plans and arrangements for a Tuesday meeting in Brussels between them and the three European countries foreign ministers, FNA said.

Speaking on Sunday in Beijing, Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined Tehran's readiness "for all options" but expressed optimism that this round of negotiations could save the 2015 deal.

Part of the flaw with the Iran deal that President Trump rejected was it enticed Europe and the U.S. into economic relations with Iran that would work against holding the country accountable for violations of the agreement, Bolton said. "We will all save it together".

Heiko Maas, the German foreign minister, said he feared that European Union negotiations with Mr Zarif and later with...

At the same time that the Trump administration is looking to torpedo one multilateral nuclear agreement, it is touting the possibility of setting up a new one with North Korea.

Johnson also called on Washington "to avoid any actions that could prevent the remaining parties to the agreement from meeting their commitments under the deal - including delivering sanctions relief through legitimate trade".

Zarif further censured the United States under Trump for developing the habit of voicing opposition to worldwide deals and regulations.

In the past week, it has slapped a new series of sanctions against Iran.

The Iranian foreign minister highlighted the need for other parties to the JCPOA to provide "sufficient guarantees" that assure Tehran of being able to "reap the benefits" of the nuclear deal.

Zarif's has since embarked on a whirlwind global tour, visiting both Russian Federation and China, the two other signatory nations, in a bid to bolster support.

"They have faith Russian Federation and China will stand by their side as some of their closest allies and biggest supporters", added Basravi.

"Then if you can improve on other things, other issues, you always have space for doing that", she said.

"But it really is a question mark as to what Europe can do for them in the face of ..."

European firms, especially those from France and Germany, rushed to invest in Iran following the 2015 accord, under which Tehran agreed to freeze its nuclear program in return for the repeal of punishing global sanctions.

But while he talked up the prospect of renewed coordination with America's allies, another top aide reminded Europe its companies could face sanctions if they continue to do business with the Middle Eastern power.

"Now, even though hardline critics of the government say they support the president, they are predicting that this will shake the foundation of Rouhani's cabinet", added Basravi.
