New European sanctions would affect nuclear deal

"We have witnessed many changes in the incumbent administration so far", referring to the numerous changes Trump has made to his personnel since taking office over one year ago. Nevertheless, unless there is a recovery in the country's economic and investment prospects, Iran's commitment to the deal could gradually erode following a U.S. withdrawal, resulting in its eventual collapse.

The president is considered about the deal's "sunset clauses" as well as about Iran's ballistic missile program. "I guess [Tillerson] thought it was okay".

"If he does not change his rhetoric toward China (and I see no indication that he or Trump will), expect that there will be increased tensions with China and also expect perhaps more trade tariffs on China", he said. "So we were not really thinking the same", he was quoted as saying the magazine.

Trump has repeatedly slammed the 2015 nuclear deal, under which Iran agreed to freeze its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of crippling worldwide sanctions.

Tehran's compliance with the 2015 agreement was then repeatedly confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a United Nations nuclear watchdog. These beliefs dovetail nicely with Trump's views about heaping "maximum pressure" on Pyongyang and that the Iran deal should be radically altered or scrapped.

The meeting comes ahead of a May 12 deadline for US President Donald Trump to extended waivers of economic sanctions on Iran.

Shamkhani made the remarks as he met Saturday in Tehran with Yusuf bin Alawi, the minister responsible for foreign affairs in Oman, a key Gulf ally of the US with close ties to Iran.

Trump is bound to certify Iran's compliance with the 2015 accord every six months and waive the sanctions that were suspended when Iran agreed to restrict its nuclear program.

The deal's backers have presented it as a victory for diplomacy and nuclear non-proliferation efforts. The location of the meeting has yet to be settled. At that meeting, South Korean officials said they had secured a commitment from Pyongyang to denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and an offer to hold talks with the US on how to approach that issue.

State Department policy planning chief Brian Hook, who led the US delegation, has scheduled a press briefing later in the day.

"This whole situation with North Korea".

"This is a last chance", Trump warned them. "Right? Separate capacity and someone who might well have intent and break those two apart". While Tillerson had been seen as a moderating influence, Trump appears to be courting harder line hawks.

Chinese scholars argued that Pompeo may have little impact on U.S.

The ex-oilman had waged an often lonely battle within Trump's Cabinet to save the deal.

In the joint document, Britain, France and Germany set out questions and answers that seek to show that legally, the European powers would not be breaking the terms of the nuclear deal.

Pompeo has been no less hawkish, calling for an end to the talks and the use of 2,000 airstrikes to obliterate Iran's nuclear program as negotiations neared their completion in 2014.

"This whole situation with North Korea and the way it's shaping up is so unorthodox", Corker said, while adding he wasn't opposed to Trump meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
