Iran turns to China as Europe tries to save nuclear deal

These reported remarks come as Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif embarked on a diplomatic tour to try and save the nuclear deal.

"I hope and believe that these visits to multiple countries will improve countries', including China's, understanding of Iran's position", Wang said.

When asked if tensions between Israel and Iran have escalated because the USA withdrew from the nuclear deal, Pompeo said, "That's ludicrous to suggest that Iran feels less constrained when during the JCPOA that have now fired missiles into an airport where Americans travel each day in Riyadh".

An Iranian spokesman said Zarif will also visit Moscow and Brussels to hold meetings during the current trip.

Russian Federation has also criticised Trump's decision, with Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov alleging the move was "protectionism in disguise", in comments made on Thursday to state news agency TASS.

Iran has said it would remain in the JCPOA for now, pending negotiations with the other signatories in the coming weeks before making a final decision on its future role in the agreement.

"Iran's Military Budget is up more than 40 percent since the Obama negotiated Nuclear Deal was reached. just another indicator that it was all a big lie", he wrote.

Israel Orders Human Rights Watch Official Deported
Human Rights Watch stands fully behind Shakir and has retained counsel to challenge the decision before an Israeli court. The group said it applied in January 2018 to extend Shakir's work visa, which was due to expire on March 31.


However, US President Donald Trump, a long-time critic of the agreement, on Tuesday defied last-ditch efforts by European allies and announced Washington's withdrawal from the deal.

Iran has threatened to resume "industrial scale" uranium enrichment "without any restrictions" if it does not get guarantees that the trade ties which have been established with Europe since the deal was signed will be maintained.

Traditionally, Iranian officials do not respond to Israeli claims, saying they do not merit an answer.

A number of voices in Iran have suggested the deal is unlikely to survive.

"We are waiting now for how the decision-makers in the European Union will react".

"China and Iran have comprehensive strategic partnership and are trade partners and these relations still continue", he noted.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the deal on Iran's nuclear program, was signed between Iran and six global mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.
