Iran Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif talks with the Belgian Foreign minister before their meeting at the Palais Egmont in Brussels on January 11, 2018. The Kremlin said that Russian Federation and its ex-Soviet allies in the European Economic Union will sign a free-trade pact with Iran next week.

The accord lifted worldwide sanctions on Iran in 2016 in return for Tehran shutting down its capacity, under strict surveillance by the United Nations nuclear watchdog, to stockpile enriched uranium for a possible atomic bomb.
Germany's minister for economic affairs Peter Altmaier said last week that Berlin will try to "persuade the United States government to change its behaviour".
Following Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S from the nuclear accord, Iran and Israel exchanged blows over Syria, with Israel carrying out air strikes on Iranian targets inside Syria after Iran fired rockets at Israeli military targets, the BBC reported.
