European Union prepares measures to protect from United States sanctions on Iran

Bolton'Regime change in Iran not policy of Trump administration

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that his country wouldn't surrender to pressure or threats from the United States in the aftermath of the nuclear deal pullout, adding that US President Donald Trump had made an error in expecting Tehran to leave the deal.

The discussion will focus on, among others, how to maintain economic relations and effective banking transactions with Iran in the context of renewed U.S sanctions, according to Mogherini.

An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago, while the chief of inspections at the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency resigned suddenly, the agency said on Friday without giving a reason, according to Reuters.

She told reporters it was a positive meeting.

Mogherini acknowledged that there are several other issues that need to be addressed separately with Iran, notably the country's ballistic missile programme and its role in fomenting unrest in the Middle East.

Iran's main oil clients in Europe are Italy, France, Greece, Spain, Poland and Turkey.

Meanwhile, President Trump has said that he is "ready, willing, and able" to discuss a new deal that places tougher restrictions on Iran.

-The ones who are going to do business with Iran and invest in Iran are the European private sectors and governments can not force them to work with Iran.

The U.S. should impose economic sanctions against this state sponsor of terrorism until its government shows clear and irrefutable signs of moving away from funding terrorist organizations, militarily backing the U.S.'s enemies and propping up dictators who commit genocide against their own people.

Bolton in the past has suggested the US government should push for a change in government in Iran.

"The Secretary underlined that the United States and our European allies share strong interests in preventing Iran from ever developing a nuclear weapon and in countering the Iranian regime's destabilizing activities in the region", spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.

Meanwhile, EU member states are seeking ways to mitigate risks connected with the resumption of USA anti-Iranian sanctions, as the proposed U.S. measures endanger 20 billion euros of annual EU-Iran trade. But the reach of the USA financial system, the dominance of the dollar and the presence of European companies' operations in the United States all weaken any potential EU measures. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, not Rouhani, has the last say on all state matters.

The EU can not provide legal and economic guarantees to Iran after Washington pulled out of the accord, but is serious about seeking a way to keep investment flowing, the EU's top diplomat said on Tuesday.

He said that "our means are there and we will use them, but don't fool ourselves our means are limited".
