Iran's Khamenei criticizes U.S. over hard-line stance

Iran's Khamenei criticizes U.S. over hard-line stance

Iran's top leader set out a series of conditions on Wednesday for European powers if they want Tehran to stay in a nuclear deal after the US exit, including steps by European banks to safeguard trade with Tehran and guaranteeing Iranian oil sales. But European companies say they are anxious about getting caught up in the new USA sanctions, given the extent of Washington's global reach, and some have already started pulling out.

Scrapping the deal would allow Iran to resume its nuclear program and this would "massively jeopardize" Europe's security, Maas told reporters after what he called a frank but constructive meeting with Bolton.

Zarif said Pompeo had repeated old allegations against Tehran "only with a stronger and more indecent tone".

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that Iran would defeat the United States if Iranian officials did their duty and that US President Donald Trump will vanish from history, like his predecessors.

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

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 top diplomat further said the U.S. has failed to turn the tide of global opinion against Iran and in favor of itself by spreading lies about the Islamic Republic.

They should condemn USA for allegedly breaking a United Nations resolution that supports the nuclear deal.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the senior Iranian official said Iran's enrichment right has been officially recognized in the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.

The 2015 nuclear agreement, worked out by the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia, China and Iran, lifted sanctions on Iran in exchange for Tehran limiting its atomic program.

The UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, expressed his country's support for the new US strategy towards Iran, announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday. "We don't want a proliferation of nuclear weapons in our expanded neighborhood", Maas said.

"The Islamic Republic can not deal with a government that easily violates an global 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.

Pompeo tells the House Foreign Affairs Committee that he is planning a meeting in early to mid-June with "a number of partners" including Britain, France and Germany, which were parties to the nuclear deal along with Russian Federation and China.
