Iran 'ready' to resume nuke program if United States leaves deal

IDF responds to fire from Syria

In a CBS interview to be broadcast Sunday on "Face the Nation", Zarif doubled down on a warning this month from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who vowed Washington would "regret" withdrawing from the nuclear deal, and that Iran would respond within a week if it did. "Tehran's reaction to America's withdrawal of the deal will be unpleasant", Iranian state television quoted Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as saying in NY.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says President TrumpDonald John TrumpFlynn to campaign for Montana GOP Senate candidate Trump considering pardon for boxing legend after call from Sylvester Stallone Decline in EPA enforcement won't keep climate bill from coming MORE has failed to live up to the nuclear deal with Tehran.

The deal reached between Iran, the United States and five other world powers put curbs on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

The fate of the Iran deal will be a key issue during French President Emmanuel Macron's state visit to Washington beginning on Monday, followed by talks with German chancellor Angela Merkel in Washington on Friday.

"The United States needs to approach this from a position of dealing with another sovereign government", said Zarif, "And if that approach led to change, then the United States would see a difference".

Washington's desire to unilaterally renegotiate the landmark global nuclear accord with Tehran should be seen as a "very risky message" by anyone planning to engage in talks with the United States, warned Iran's foreign minister.

"To try to appease the president, I think, would be an exercise in futility", he said.

It improved, as 75 investors sold F shares while 325 reduced holdings. 122 funds opened positions while 225 raised stakes. Note, this compares with a consensus analyst forecast of 1.90 in earnings per share for its next fiscal quarterly report.

The inherent inconsistency in the foreign minister's comments has to do with the deal Iran would still have with France, Britain, Russia and China and Germany, who also signed the nuclear agreement in July 2015.

"Some people dislike social media, and don't like people to have information, and they say people sleep better if they are totally uninformed", Rowhani said, without naming anyone.

The recent reforms that the Iranian administration made to the currency market was a preemptive measure before the US likely decision against Iran, he was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

"Iran has a wide range of options both inside and outside of the JCPOA and surely, the reaction from Iran and the worldwide community will be "unpleasant" for the Americans", Zarif said, according to Iran's propaganda channel, Press TV.

Despite the threats of a tough response to a U.S. pullout, Zarif also left open the possibility of diplomatic action during a 45-day period to formally notify the withdrawal.

A decision by Trump to walk away, he warned, would send a message to all governments "that you should never come to an agreement with the United States, because at the end of the day, the operating principle for the United States is, what's mine is mine, what's yours is negotiable".
