Iran's Khamenei outlines demands for Europe to save nuclear deal

Iran issues terrifying warning to Donald Trump: 'You will VANISH from history' Pompeo Seeks June Meeting With European Allies On Iran Strategy

European powers must continue buying crude and protect Iranian oil sales from United States pressure, and promise they won't seek new negotiations on Iran's ballistic missile programme and Middle East activities, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's official website said on Wednesday.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, addressing government officials on the occasion of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, said the US has been aiming to topple the Islamic republic for 40 years.

US sanctions lifted after the 2015 accord would be reimposed, the top USA diplomat said, and those and new measures would together constitute "unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime".

In his first major foreign policy address since moving to the State Department from the CIA, Pompeo said on Monday that Washington would increase the financial pressure on Iran by imposing the "strongest sanctions in history" on the Islamic Republic if Tehran refused to change the course of its foreign and domestic policy.

On May 8, Trump announced Washington's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

Since Trump declared US exit from the accord, European countries have said they will try to keep Iran's oil and investment flowing, but have also admitted they will struggle to provide the guarantees Tehran seeks.

Europe is still "very, very united" on continuing to support Iran's nuclear deal, says German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

The Iranian leader said that the USA has always wanted regime change in Tehran, but that America would be defeated if they tried.

In a May 23 interview on Iran's state television, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called Pompeo's comments about Iran "untrue" and based on "old illusions".

President Trump orders the Justice Department to investigate the Russian Federation investigation.

With global oil prices reaching three year highs, and with USA shale producers taping wells that see the bulk of its profits during the first few years of production as opposed to conventional wells that see profits spread out over a long time horizon, Iran's hope that the European Union can rescue its oil exports and any hope that oil markets will miss its barrels may be just a pipe dream. The other two signatories to the deal, China and Russian Federation, also want to maintain it.

US President Donald Trump's newly installed top diplomat also hinted at the possibility of military action should Iranian leaders reconstitute their nuclear program.

Iran also agreed to modify a heavy water facility so it could not produce plutonium suitable for a bomb. "Europe must compensate for that silence", Khamenei said according to state-run news agency IRNA.

After the US's withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Germany, the United Kingdom, and France have been scrambling to save the Iran nuclear deal.
