He will then go to Brussels to meet counterparts from Germany, Britain and France "about the fate of the nuclear deal", Iranian state television said.

White House National Security adviser John Bolton said US sanctions on European companies that maintain business dealings with Iran were "possible", but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he remained hopeful Washington and its allies could strike a new nuclear deal with Tehran.

The head of the influential Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, said: "I hope recent events will lead us to end our trust in the West and the Europeans".

We are gonna work with all of the Europeans.

In a live press statement in Rome on Tuesday, Mogherini slammed U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to ditch the deal, vowing that "the European Union is determined to preserve it".

Iran has claimed its nuclear program is for civilian purposes and denies supporting extremists in the region.

“If you look at the advances that Iran has made under cover of this agreement, it's conventional military and terrorists advances in Iraq, in Syria, in Lebanon, in Yemen since 2015, Iran was really on the march.

With that said, many question how competitive this series will actually be. " I'm a little older, a little more experienced ". It was my first time being in the playoffs, being able to go against one of the best players in the league, if not the best.

Responding to a question, Bolton said that the leadership of the previous Obama administration lied to the American people. On Saturday, French President Emmanuel Macron told Trump in a telephone call that he was anxious about stability in the Middle East, according to Macron's office.

Simultaneously, the country would make preparations to restart its programme of nuclear enrichment, he added, as per CNN.

Japan, for its part, has joined the European signatories in the Iran deal in condemning the U.S. President's decision.

Following his meeting with Zarif on Sunday, China's foreign minister said Beijing would "work to maintain the [nuclear] deal", state news agency Xinhua reported.

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.

Germany, France and Britain were three of the six signatories to the 2015 pact which saw sanctions lifted in return for the commitment by Tehran not to acquire nuclear weapons. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif sets off on Saturday for talks in China, Russia and Europe to see what can be salvaged.
