U.S. general slams leader of Iran's Quds Force

U.S. general slams leader of Iran's Quds Force

Russian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday condemned Washington, saying that Russia would do everything to preserve and fully implement the Iran nuclear deal, which is under threat by US unilateral sanctions.

French vehicle manufacturer Renault also said it would be complying with U.S. sanctions, having previously announced plans to increase production capacity in the country. The measure "allows EU operators to recover damages arising from USA 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.

President Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal in May, calling it "disaster".

In several videos posted to social media over the past week, crowds of dissidents are heard chanting, "Death to the dictator" as the United States prepared to reinstate sanctions on the country following President Donald Trump's exit from the worldwide nuclear deal in May.

Washington's unilateral anti-Iran campaign has nothing to do with worldwide law and fair trade, and thus the threat of potential sanctions won't affect Beijing's sovereign right to freely choose its business partners.

Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations Chairman Arthur Stark and Executive Vice Chairman and CEO Malcolm Hoenlein said in a statement, "It is our hope that the imposition of new sanctions will lead Iran to meaningful negotiations and bring an end to the variety of threats that the Iranian leaders have been making".

Trump has said he is ready to hold talks with Iranian leaders, without preconditions but meanwhile, his administration has vowed to press on with its pressure campaign.

Russian Federation has once again hit out at the U.S. for re-imposing its unilateral sanctions against Iran after scrapping the 2015 multilateral nuclear deal, describing it as a "destructive step" that could destabilize the already-volatile Middle East region.

More sanctions targeting Iran's oil and gas industry are due to begin in November. "And it's a good way to show their capacity to inflict economic cost against the United States".

"However, the US responded to our expectation by inciting global sanctions and pressure against the DPRK".

Rabiei's supporters say he is not responsible for Iran's economic crisis and were able to fend off an earlier attempt to impeach him in March. "We don't find the sanctions right either", Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.

Vladimir Yermakov, Director General of the Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control at Russia's Foreign Ministry, had said in early May that with the United States exit "it might even be easier for us on the economic front, because we won't have any limits on economic cooperation with Iran".

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

"North Korea's strategic policy is to deepen relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran and confront unilateralism", Ri said.

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

"In the current situation, friendly countries should develop their relations and cooperation in (the) worldwide community", Rouhani said, according to a state news agency.
