Europe, Iran seek to save nuclear deal after United States pullout

Iran said it may resume uranium enrichment in a higher rate in weeks if it finds nuclear deal will not work anymore after the U.S. pullout from the deal.

In a statement, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said after talks with his French counterpart, Jean-Yves Le Drian, that both countries were determined "to conserve the essence of the Iran nuclear deal".

And the Number 10 spokesman added: "The Prime Minister raised the potential impact of U.S. sanctions on those firms which are now conducting business in Iran".

Zarif also discussed current events, tying the USA decision to move its capital to Jerusalem to a long trend where the United States ignores global consensus and agreements.

In an interview on CNN's State of the Union Sunday, Bolton was asked about his past hawkish comments on Iran in the wake of President Donald Trump pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal. We all share the common objective of making sure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, are anxious about their terribly destabilising and threatening military behaviour across the region and their ballistic missile program. (The Israeli documents can be used to pressure Iran for additional access.) However, all inspections will end if the deal is junked.

"I doubt very much this will lead to an all-out war between Iran and Israel", said Banuazizi, director of BC's Islamic Civilization and Societies program.

Iran's foreign minister said on a visit to Moscow on Monday he was seeking "assurances" from the backers of the country's nuclear deal after the USA pulled out.

Target cuts delivery fee by nearly half
Back in December, we reported that Target plans to bring same-day delivery to half of its store locations by the end of 2018. They have up until 7 PM Monday through Friday to place the order, then the box is delivered to their door the next day.

"The consequences of American sanctions go way beyond goods shipped by American companies because of our technology licenses to many other countries and businesses around the world". Judging from his words - and those of national security adviser John Bolton - the new White House goal is to facilitate regime change in Tehran.

Palestinian commentators have noted that the timing of the move feels like salt in a wound, as the ceremony will take place on the anniversary of Israel's founding - a day they call the "Naqba", or "disaster", because hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced to flee their homes.

For his part, the Russian top diplomat underlined the need for fulfilling obligations under the JCPOA by all involved sides and providing appropriate mechanisms for saving the nuclear deal and safeguarding the interests of Iran and other parties to the accord.

After long negotiations, Iran had agreed in July 2015 to freeze its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of punishing worldwide sanctions.

While Zarif works with world powers to keep the nuclear deal alive, the Rouhani administration has been fighting back against critics who have attacked him for trusting the United States.

"It's reminiscent of the saying attributed to Vladimir Lenin that the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we'll hang them", he said. "Do we accept that the United States is the economic gendarme of the planet? We have no illusions about Iran's disruptive behavior but we think we can tackle those in other ways", Johnson said.

Meanwhile, the US government tried to further pinch Iran's finances by disrupting a currency exchange network allegedly used to transfer millions of dollars to Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
