Washington receives widespread criticism for reimposing sanctions on Iran

TENSE IN TEHRAN: The President Slams Iran With 'MOST BITING SANCTIONS EVER IMPOSED'

In a tweet, Mr Trump warned: "Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States". The measure "allows EU operators to recover damages arising from United States extraterritorial sanctions from the persons causing them and nullifies the effect in the EU of any foreign court rulings based on them", the European Commission said in a press release Monday.

Moreover, Votel said there were no unsafe or unprofessional interactions between the Iranians and American warships during the exercise, continuing a roughly year-long pattern of professional interactions between the two sides.

On Tuesday - when the United States reintroduced its bans on Iran - the Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement and criticized the USA for violating UN Security Council Resolution 2231 that endorsed the Iran deal. European allies, including Germany, opposed the move and said they will uphold their end of the agreement.

European governments - who signed the Iran nuclear deal along with Washington - are infuriated by Trump's strategy that has prompted many of their large firms to leave Iran for fear of U.S. penalties. "But now, all the countries in the world are supporting Iran".

Stark and Hoenlein expressed backing for the ongoing anti-regime protests in Iran, saying, "We hope that the Iranian government will receive the clear message from the people in the streets that they want the country's resources spent on bettering the conditions of daily life, expanding domestic investments, and addressing the vast drought that has plagued so much of the country".

The US is bracing for cyberattacks Iran could launch in retaliation for the re-imposition of sanctions this week by President Donald Trump, cybersecurity and intelligence experts said.

The menacing comments are an indication of the combustible nature of dealings between the two countries, as disagreements over the nuclear deal escalate and routine diplomatic interactions, which occurred under the Obama administration, cease.

British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said Tuesday that the current JCPOA was the "best possible" and "achievable" deal to address the West's concerns on Iran, in sharp contrast with Trump's abhorrence of the deal.

"Businesses are fleeing the Iranian market", Hagee asserted. Critics accused him of mismanagement and blamed him for the country's recent economic problems, which have been exacerbated by the restoration of USA sanctions lifted under the 2015 nuclear agreement.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry condemned Washington as well, saying that Syria supports Iran in the face of the "aggressive" USA policies.

He said he considered the US pullout from the nuclear deal and re-imposition of sanctions to be "incorrect".

The German government said US sanctions against Iran that have an extra-territorial effect violate worldwide law, and Germany expects Washington to consider European interests when coming up with such sanctions.

"In the current situation, friendly countries should develop their relations and cooperation in (the) worldwide community", he told Ri Yong Ho, adding the two countries have "always had close views".

He has said the deal "failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb" and did not address Tehran's "malign activities, including its ballistic missile programme and its support for terrorism".
