US Security Adviser Says US Not Pushing Iran 'Regime Change'

AP18005436666838

More than €143 million worth of Irish exports to Iran are under threat from USA president Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the worldwide nuclear deal and to reimpose sanctions on the Islamic state.

Russian media further cited Zarif as saying that Tehran and Moscow would do their utmost to keep the Iran deal in place less than a week after US President Donald Trump announced Washington's withdrawal from the JCPOA despite earlier global warnings and pleas for the White House not to attack yet another worldwide agreement.

Bord Bia and Enterprise Ireland led separate trade missions to Tehran in 2016, which were attended by dozens of Irish companies, looking to open trade contacts between the two states.

New Zealand exported $120 million of goods to Iran past year, with dairy products making up three-quarters of that.

President Trump has also created a situation where Iran will build better relations with Russia, China and Europe to carry forward the deal.

"The answer is, it's possible, it depends on the conduct of other governments", Bolton replied. "They will never abandon the USA for us", said housewife Poormoslem at a protest rally against Trump on Friday.

Trump made his disdain for the Obama-era Iran deal well known from the start of his campaign for president in 2015.

Analysts say China's presence in Iran will grow when the United States imposes sanctions.

China's Foreign Ministry and state media said Javad Zarif was visiting Beijing on Sunday at the head of a large political and economic delegation to "exchange views with relevant parties on the developments of the Iranian nuclear issue".

"So far we have had very positive signals from signatories of the deal. but what is important is for Europeans to find a way to protect their investors from United States penalties (when they invest in Iran)", a senior Iranian diplomat said.

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

'The Prime Minister raised the potential impact of USA sanctions on those firms which are now conducting business in Iran'.

Germany said it will spend the next few months trying to persuade Washington to change its mind.

"It's reminiscent of the saying attributed to Vladimir Lenin that the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we'll hang them", he said.

"In this time, we'll use all possibilities to persuade the USA government to change its behavior", he told ZDF television.

Pompeo said he was "hopeful in the days and weeks ahead we can come up with a deal that really works, that really protects the world from Iranian bad behavior, not just their nuclear program, but their missiles and their malign behavior as well".

"I think at the moment there's some feeling in Europe - they're really surprised we got out of it, really surprised at the reimposition of strict sanctions. He [Trump] makes the decisions, and the advice I give him is between us", Bolton said.
