Iran's Zarif Hails 'Constructive Meeting' With EU On Nuclear Deal

Iran's Zarif Hails 'Constructive Meeting' With EU On Nuclear Deal

The United States have made a habit of breaking global rules, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran Mohammad Jawad Zarif said during a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Monday.

United States president Donald's Trump's decision to abandon the nuclear deal has infuriated Washington's allies in Europe as well as China and Russian Federation.

Zarif, after a closed-door meeting with Mogherini in Brussels, said: "My meeting with Mogherini was good and constructive".

He said the deal "is based on the balance of obligations" between Tehran and the opposite side, including the USA, and that after Washington's pullout "this balance is undermined", adding, "We should see how we can secure the interests of the Iranian people". He had earlier talked of just two weeks. Germany and France have significant trade links with Iran and remain committed to the nuclear agreement, as does Britain, and the three countries' foreign ministers plan to meet on Tuesday to discuss it.

Britain, German, France, Russia, China and Iran stand for compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) for Iran's nuclear program, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

That is part of a flurry of diplomatic activity following Trump's unilateral withdrawal from what he called "a awful, one-sided deal", a move accompanied by the threat of penalties against any foreign firms doing business in Iran.

Trump hit back Saturday evening, tweeted that the accord had failed to contain Iran's militarism.

Zarif said European powers must give Iran guarantees that it will get the economic benefits of the deal, warning there was not much time for them to deliver those assurances.

Analysts have suggested Russian Federation could benefit economically from the U.S. pull-out, as it is less exposed to the consequences of renewed sanctions than Europe.

Johnson said he would discuss ways to protect European companies doing business with Iran at the Brussels meeting.

"Let's not fool ourselves that there are dozens of things we can do", said a senior European diplomat.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said he wants to secure a wider deal after the United States withdrawal with four pillars: limiting Iran's nuclear program in the short and the long term, restraining its ballistic missile program and curbing what the West views as its destabilizing behavior in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon.

The U.S. Treasury announced on Tuesday more sanctions on officials of the Iranian central bank, including Governor Valiollah Seif, for allegedly moving millions of dollars on behalf of the country's Revolutionary Guards Corps to Lebanon's Shi'ite Hezbollah group.

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.

He said another agreement with Iran should be signed.
