Europe Has 60 Days To Give Nuclear 'Guarantees' - Iran

"Is the U.S. going to impose sanctions on European companies that continue to do business with Iran?".

Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Iranian nuclear deal and revive US economic sanctions has alarmed the leaders of Britain, France and Germany who remain committed to the deal and who have significant trade ties with Tehran.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed in a phone call on Friday that talks were needed to discuss how U.S sanctions on Iran would affect foreign companies operating in the country.

"We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanctions". "We couldn't reach agreement with our E3 partners", referring to Britain, France and Germany, all signatories of the Iran deal.

Germany said it will spend the next few months trying to persuade Washington to change its mind. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas acknowledged, however, that protecting European companies from potential United States penalties could be hard.

When pressed by CNN on whether the administration would sanction European firms that continue to do business with Iran, Bolton said, "I think the Europeans will see that it's in their interest ultimately to come along with us". "It depends on the conduct of other governments". If the latter happens, Iran's nuclear progress could lead to a combined bombing campaign by USA and Israel.

"Remember how badly Iran was behaving with the Iran Deal in place", he tweeting. "Now, that will not happen!"

Trump announced Tuesday that Washington will pull out of the landmark nuclear accord with Iran.

Trump declared on Tuesday that the US would withdraw from the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, which sought to place sharp limits on the country's uranium enrichment in exchange for sanctions relief.

Germany's minister for economic affairs Peter Altmaier said last week that Berlin will try to "persuade the U.S. government to change its behaviour".

The EU's time to preserve the deal is limited: Rouhani
Iran has been in discussions with countries involved in the 2015 agreement in an attempt to save the deal after the U.S. withdrawal.

In an interview with ZDF public television, Altmaier noted the United States had set a 90-day deadline for foreign firms to comply with the return of sanctions and that this period could be used to convince Washington to change course.

Trump weighed in later Sunday, saying his decision would limit Iran's regional ambitions.

Macron's office said the two leaders spoke Saturday and the French leader expressed his "great concern about stability" in the region.

As a private citizen, Bolton suggested in the past that the United States push for a change in Iran's government.

Bolton struck a hawkish tone with his comments in an interview with CNN's "State of the Union" program.

True, such missiles would not carry nuclear bombs for the time being, but they certainly can carry a variety of other weapons that could be also lethal and devastating to many countries in the neighbourhood of Iran.

In the CNN interview, Bolton did not respond directly when asked whether Trump might seek "regime change" in Iran, or whether the USA military would be ordered to make a preemptive strike against any Iranian nuclear facility.

"And they may try to [stay in the deal], in part because I think despite President Trump's complete consistency in opposition to the deal ... many people, including, apparently, former Secretary of State John KerryJohn Forbes KerryRomney: Those who mock McCain "humiliate themselves" Another battle between politics and common sense Trump hasn't earned a Nobel, but the Peshmerga have MORE, thought that we never would get out of it", Bolton said.

Le Maire said Paris would seek to strengthen Europe's ability to block sanctions and provide investment finance to companies.
