Iran says it will reject any changes to nuclear deal

Iran says it will reject any changes to nuclear deal

His remarks came after Reuters reported Friday that according to a confidential document, Britain, France and Germany have proposed fresh European Union sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missiles and its role in Syria conflict, in a bid to persuade Washington to preserve the 2015 nuclear deal.

The senior diplomat stressed, "If America exits the deal and unilateral sanctions return, we will definitely not continue the deal because it will not serve our interests".

Iranian nuclear negotiator and deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi.

"European countries ought to keep pushing the United States to fulfill its obligations under the deal", he added, speaking before leaving Vienna for Tehran.

It spoke of "intensive talks" with Washington to "achieve a clear and lasting reaffirmation of U.S. support for the agreement beyond May 12".

Yesterday senior US State Department official Brian Hook said that President Donald Trump wanted to reach a "supplemental" deal with the European signatories to the Iran nuclear deal.

The Iranian diplomatic team visiting Vienna for regular talks on the implementation of Iran's nuclear deal would meet with other participating sides including the USA officials, a source close to the Iranian negotiators said on condition of anonymity.

Iran's foreign ministry spokesman on Wednesday played down the potential impact of the appointment of Mike Pompeo as the new USA secretary of state on a 2015 nuclear deal.

Trump's decision this week to replace Tillerson with Mike Pompeo as secretary of state has been widely seen as another bad omen for the agreement.

The European parties to the agreement are desperate to save it and have been scrambling to find ways to persuade Trump not to rip it up.

Pompeo, head of the Central Intelligence Agency, is seen as taking a harder line on Iran.

Iran, of course, doesn't have a nuclear weapons program, and didn't have such a program for years before the deal was made.
