Iran nuclear deal: Envoy starts diplomatic tour after United States withdrawal

Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said Germany viewed President Donald Trump's unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear pact as wrong, adding that Berlin hopes Washington can still be persuaded not to punish foreign firms doing business there.

The Trump administration portrayed its rejection of the nuclear agreement as a response, in part, to Tehran's interventions in the Middle East, underpinning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's tough line towards Iran.

Several Irish firms began trading with Iran, the Middle East's second-largest economy, in the wake of the 2015 deal to control Tehran's nuclear ambitions, which led to the lifting of long-standing global sanctions and the resumption of formal trade ties with several European countries.

Zarif later told a joint news conference with Lavrov that "the final aim of these negotiations is to seek assurances that the interests of the Iranian nation will be safeguarded".

Part of the flaw with the Iran deal that President Trump rejected was it enticed Europe and the U.S. into economic relations with Iran that would work against holding the country accountable for violations of the agreement, Bolton said.

However, President Trump has explicitly noted that United States hopes to reach a "fair" deal with Iran through new rounds of talks.

"The ultimate objective of all these negotiations is to obtain assurances that the interests of the Iranian people, which are guaranteed by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, will be protected", Zarif said. The best-case scenario is that Iran and the other signatories to the deal ignore our withdrawal. "We will have to see whether (those) remaining in the JCPOA can deliver those benefits to Iran", he said.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said while the Iran deal was "a flawed agreement" because of a lack of unfettered inspections and other problems, leaving the deal isolates the United States and Trump should have extended it for at least another six months to work with allies. "This is why we need to cooperate in protecting our legitimate interests".

"Today we expect to examine how we can use the mechanisms at our disposal with the participation of the European Troika, China, Russia, Iran and the European Union to prevent the undermining of this important document, to prevent destabilization of the situation in the region and to prevent new threats to the non-proliferation regime".

Israel and Iran engaged in an extensive military exchange on the heels of Trump's decision to leave the deal.

Reeves argued that because Tutankhamun died unexpectedly that he was hurriedly buried in the outer chamber of Nefertiti's tomb. Experts used ground penetrating radar (GPR) to arrive at the "conclusive evidence", the ministry said in a statement.

The White House has already began a fresh push to put pressure on Iran and Washington's European allies.
