Iran vows "expected and unexpected" moves if U.S. exits deal


Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned against the US' attempt to alter the 2015 nuclear deal, saying such a move would send a "very unsafe message" to the world that countries should never negotiate with the U.S., while threatening to renew the enrichment of uranium.

Tehran maintains its nuclear program was peaceful, and Zarif said if Iran resumed its nuclear activities, it would not be for the goal of developing a nuclear weapon.

The United States is hoping to reach an agreement with Britain, France and Germany to address President Trump's concerns about the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

"I heard today from the foreign minister of a country that sends armed drones against Israel and missiles against Saudi Arabia", Netanyahu said during a toast in honor of Israel's 70th birthday.

The Joint Commission Plan of Action (JCPOA) that emerged from those talks outlined a timeline for gradual sanctions relief on Iran, in exchange for certification that the country would disassemble nuclear sites. But Trump says he'll pull out of the deal if it isn't "fixed".

Most recently Trump has vowed to withdraw from the agreement by May 12 unless U.S., British, French and German negotiators can agree to fix what he sees as its serious flaws.

With sanctions pressure looming from the United States, the Central Bank for OPEC-member Iran said it was looking to swap currencies with neighboring Turkey. "And if it's not going to uphold a resolution, that not only it voted for but it sponsored, then the credibility of the institution that the United States considers to be very important would be at stake".

Trump has called the agreement one of the worst deals ever negotiated.




French President Emmanuel Macron will visit Washington beginning Monday to speak before Congress and meet with President Trump, and in a Fox News Sunday appearance he said he will use this time to promote a long-term USA occupation of Syria, including nation-building programs.

The Iranian prime minister also said that his government sought prevention of instability in the foreign market exchange that might be caused by a possible exit by the U.S. from the nuclear agreement.

Earlier in the week, European Union foreign ministers discussed ways to ensure the United States would not pull out of the nuclear deal, but stopped short of agreeing to new sanctions on Tehran.

Zarif said Pompeo's Capitol Hill testimony that Iran was not "racing towards a bomb" was a "late admission but better than never".

When asked on Saturday if Iran could stay in the agreement and work with the Europeans and other nations, Zarif said, "I believe that's highly unlikely".

At least five Iranians, all dual-American citizens or green-card holders, have been sentenced to prison in Iran on espionage-related charges, as has Chinese-American Princeton graduate student Xiyue Wang.

Trump, for his part, has also criticized the government in Iran and said earlier this year that the Iranian people would receive "great support" from America "at the appropriate time".
