Pompeo Lays Out 12 Requirements For Signing New Nuclear Deal With Iran

Iran issues terrifying warning to Donald Trump: 'You will VANISH from history'

If Iran fails to comply with Washington's list of demands, the USA will impose the "strongest sanctions in history", Pompeo warned.

Maas said he explained the German and European position in a frank, but constructive discussion with U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton, arguing that it was important to avoid any resumption of Iran's nuclear activities.

With reference to recent anti-Iran remarks of the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters that "Mr. Pompeo's speech was with no heads or tails and was illogical".

Scramble for Iran: All three European countries have sharply criticized US President Donald Trump's May 12 decision to withdraw Washington from the deal and have vowed to discuss how to save it with Iran and the other signatories - China and Russian Federation.

"The American leaders...have got this message that if they attack Iran, they will encounter a fate similar to that of Saddam Hussein", the IRGC said in a statement, according to a Reuters report. The deal, which Trump called the "worst deal ever", trades sanctions relief for a rollback in Iran's nuclear program.

European banks should "safeguard trade" with Tehran.

He also voiced confidence that European countries would eventually "go along with" the US decision on Iran.

He also said he would reinstate United States nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

The other signatories are to present Iran with "a new package", he announced, but said its contents are within the boundaries of the agreement and do not include "any other issues".

"The Islamic Republic can not deal with a government that easily violates an worldwide treaty, withdraws its signature and in a theatrical show brags about its withdrawal on television", he said in excepts of his remarks posted on his website.

"The current US president will meet the same fate as his predecessors. and will vanish from history", he said, referring to Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump long complained about the nuclear accord, saying Tehran was violating the "spirit" of it by continuing to test ballistic missiles and by supporting militant activities in the region, leading him to withdraw from the pact on May 8.

His statement was echoed by Luxembourg's foreign minister Jean Asselborn who said there were limits to the European Union's powers to persuade its larger firms to stay in Iran in the face of threatened United States sanctions.
