Europe, Iran diplomats plan to save nuclear deal

"There was awareness of the urgency", Mogherini said after the meeting in Brussels.

Before leaving, Zarif published a government statement on his Twitter page, slamming the "extremist administration" of U.S. president Donald Trump for abandoning "an accord recognised as a victory of diplomacy by the global community".

Khamenei, who has the last word on crucial issues, said Wednesday, "It is said that we will continue with three European countries - France, Germany and Britain". He has said that Iran should receive the economic benefits promised in the accord, even if the United States reinstates economic sanctions against the country.

Mogherini will chair talks between the British, French, German and Iranian foreign ministers in Brussels on Tuesday.

That is part of a flurry of diplomatic activity following Trump's unilateral withdrawal from what he called "a awful, one-sided deal", a move accompanied by the threat of penalties against any foreign firms doing business in Iran. "A lot depends on what we can do within the next few weeks".

The goal of his visit would be to exchange views with leaders of the respective countries on the developments of the Iranian nuclear issue, Xinhua reported.

"It won't be easy, that's clear to all of us".

Iran's president said the country is seeking "required guarantees" from the other countries in the deal.

"We are under no illusions about the stuff Iran gets up to in the region, in the Middle East".

But the massive diplomatic push ended in failure.

"Germany, France, and Britain - the "EU3" - say themselves that Iran poses a threat".

Moscow said on Friday that a free trade pact is to be signed next week between Iran and the Eurasian Economic Union, which includes Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan.

The unilateral U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal has poisoned the transatlantic relationship between Berlin and Washington, according to the top diplomat.

Arriving in the Belgian capital, Mr Johnson said: "We think it (the JCPOA) has value, we continue to believe in it even though America has made a decision to walk away". As a outcome, business leaders would have to make a choice between being active either in the US or Iranian market. The commission is expected to unveil them to European Union leaders at a summit in Sofia, Bulgaria, on Wednesday.

He added that Russian companies continued to work in Iran "without any fuss" even when the sanctions were in place. "The answer is no", Le Maire told reporters in Paris, adding that France won't accept the "vassalization of Europe" by us officials bent on reimposing sanctions on Iran.
