Signatories of the Iran nuclear deal met in Vienna on Friday in a bid to save the agreement, as Iran warned the deal had been put "in intensive care" by Washington's dramatic withdrawal earlier this month. The meeting will assess what can be done to keep the deal going.
Tehran is pressuring Europe to come up with a package of economic measures to offset the US pullout by May 31, saying it was "weeks" from deciding whether to quit the pact. Some people have described it as a patient in intensive care.
He added that "practical solutions" were required to address Iran's concerns over its oil exports, banking flows and foreign investments in the country.
After Trump's rejection of the Iran deal, North Korea now concedes that it can not cajole a flawed agreement with the current USA president, who is mercurial rather than scripted in his reactions.
Signatories Britain, France, Germany plus the European Union, Russia and China have been trying to salvage the deal after Trump's decision but Iran has warned that if it suffers as a result the reintroduction of USA economic sanctions, it could walk away from the accord. Just as when the deal known as the JCPOA was being negotiated, it with six countries against one.
The U.N. nuclear watchdog, which polices the pact, says Iran continues to comply with its terms. There was no offer to end the USA policy of providing the bombs, missiles, jet fighters to Saudi and Emirati forces which have killed many thousands of Yemeni civilians.
While the path that lies in front of the administration is fraught with difficulties, Pompeo's rejection of Obama's defeatism about America's place in the world, coupled with his realism about the need to bring a fundamentally weak Iranian regime to heel, is a necessary prelude to any effort to roll back the gains Iran has made since 2013.
Highlighting how hard it will be, the U.S. Treasury announced Thursday more sanctions on several Iranian and Turkish companies and a number of aircraft in a move targeting four Iranian airlines. It's a question of how much.
"We got the sense that Europeans, Russia and China. are serious and they recognize that JCPOA's survival depends on the interests of Iran being respected", Araghchi added.
But officials at Friday's meeting said they can give NO guarantees at this point.
The issue is expected to be discussed extensively in the talks between Swaraj and Zarif, officials said. Under the current circumstances, the withdrawal of United States bereft various factors on Iran and world at large.
The Iranian Leadership Asset Transparency Act passed the US House of Representatives in December and is now being taken up by a senate committee.
There has been a lot of misinformation about both getting out of the so-called Iran deal and getting into a new North Korean agreement.
Putin insisted he was "personally assured" Tehran was abiding by the nuclear agreement before the U.S. pulled out. The official said that Iranian hard-line factions that always opposed the nuclear deal are now pushing for a broader reevaluation of Iran's approach to nuclear issues.
