Europe seeking quick solution to save Iran nuclear deal -Mogherini

Earlier it was reported that the President of the United States Donald trump announced the withdrawal from the agreement on Iran's nuclear program and announced new sanctions. European Union leaders will then take up Iran at an informal dinner in Sofia the following day.

"Our meeting with Mrs Mogherini was good and constructive".

The Italian diplomat's suggested method of keeping the deal alive seems to be increased cooperation with Iran.

Last year, Ireland exported €143.2 million worth of goods and services to Iran, more than double the level in the previous year. "It has crucial significance not only for ensuring regional security, but also for stability in the world, and it's extraordinarily important in the regime of nuclear non-proliferation".

America's top diplomat said Sunday that Washington still wants to work with Europe to counter Iran's "malign behaviour", and was working hard to thrash out a more wide-ranging deal with its European partners. "We're not there, we're beginning the process", Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters after meeting his French, British and German counterparts in Brussels.

Mr Johnson held talks with French foreign minister Jean-Yves le Drian in London on Monday and said Britain stands "shoulder to shoulder" with Paris on the need to preserve the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

France insists that while European Union nations are willing to discuss issues including Iran's ballistic missile programme and its destabilising role in the Middle East, the nuclear deal must stand. "There is no Plan B", he said.

Meanwhile, Lavrov said that Russian Federation and Europe had a duty to "jointly defend their legal interests" in terms of the Iran deal.

As for the assurances, Mogherini said, "I cannot talk about legal or economic guarantees but I can talk about serious, determined, immediate work from the European side". It even touted its lack of exposure to the US market as an advantage over its German rivals, and sales in Iran helped to offset PSA's difficulties in territories such as China and the United Kingdom.

Despite complaints in European capitals, Mr. Bolton suggested European allies might agree to new US approach once they digest Mr. Trump's decision and face the threat of sanctions. If the Obama administration wished to bind the American people to the nuclear deal, it would have sent it to the U.S. Senate. Its monitors, who regularly inspect Iranian nuclear facilities, have verified that Iran is complying with the terms of the deal. Mrs May added the UK's voice to the push in her call with Mr Rouhani on Sunday. In 2015, French lender BNP Paribas was slapped with a $9 billion fine after US prosecutors accused it of violating sanctions against Iran as well as Sudan and Cuba. "The answer is no", Le Maire told reporters in Paris, adding that France won't accept the "vassalization of Europe" by USA officials bent on reimposing sanctions on Iran.

But in an interview aired on the ABC's "This Week" program, Bolton said, "That's not the policy of the administration".

"The President of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran has been tasked with taking all necessary steps in preparation for Iran to pursue industrial-scale enrichment without any restrictions", Zarif said on Friday.

The extraordinary thing is that there is no Plan B. If Donald Trump's re-imposition of American sanctions on Iran does not cause President Hassan Rouhani's government to buckle at once, which is nearly unimaginable, there is nothing else he can do short of going to war with the country.
