Zarif embarks on journey to save nuclear deal by first visiting China

UK's May, Trump Agree Talks Needed Over Iranian Sanctions

France and other western allies have been critical of Washington's plan to reimpose sanctions on any companies doing business with Iran.

"The final aim of these negotiations is to seek assurances that the interests of the Iranian nation will be defended", Zarif said at the start of a meeting.

Trump has said that he would reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

"The policy of the administration is to make sure that Iran never gets close to deliverable nuclear weapons", Bolton told ABC television's This Week program on May 13.

"We see... that significant pressure will and has already been exerted on them [remaining parties to the nuclear deal with Iran], they [ the United States] have already put forward ultimatums about the need to stop trade with Iran, including deliveries to certain products, including the purchase of Iranian oil".

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said while the Iran deal was "a flawed agreement" because of a lack of unfettered inspections and other problems, leaving the deal isolates the United States and Trump should have extended it for at least another six months to work with allies.

European countries have 60 days to provide "guarantees" to safeguard Iran's interests, after the United States withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal, Tehran's parliament's website said quoting an Iranian official.

Acknowledging that the Europeans are disappointed that the U.S. got out of the deal.

It reiterated that Iran was preparing to resume "industrial-scale" uranium enrichment "without any restrictions" unless Europe provided solid guarantees that it could maintain trade ties despite renewed United States sanctions.

After the President Donald Trump announced his withdrawal from the Iran deal, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said his decision was "disappointing".

The head of the influential Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, said: "I hope recent events will lead us to end our trust in the West and the Europeans".

Al Jazeera's Zein Basravi, reporting from Tehran, said Zarif's tour was an attempt to "salvage the nuclear deal and keep it on life support".

Under the deal, Iran was also left free to develop long-range missiles that can threaten other countries in the Middle East, including several Arab countries.

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

On Sunday, the Iranian foreign minister visited China and after his meeting with Lavrov he headed to Brussels to meet the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, and the foreign ministers of Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

"If the regime continues its nuclear aspirations, it will have bigger problems than it has ever had before", President Trump said on May 9. "Our talks (with the E3) will continue in the next two weeks", he said, referring to Britain, France and Germany.
