Russian Federation says it's possible to discuss Iran deal's future without US

"Breaking global regulations and agreements has now become a habit for the US regime", Zarif told reporters in Moscow after meeting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, according to Iran's state-run Tasnim News Agency.

Russian Federation and Iran also sought to strengthen their business ties long before the 2015 agreement, despite worldwide sanctions in place.

"As far as we are aware, the European troika, China, Iran and Russian Federation have announced their plans to comply with the JCPOA", Lavrov said Monday.

However, US President Donald Trump, a long-time critic of the agreement, on Tuesday defied last-ditch efforts by European allies and announced Washington's withdrawal from the deal.

Meanwhile on Monday, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was in Mosvcow where he met with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. But none of the four, when pressed by reporters, gave any details of their plans.

After the USA departure from the nuclear deal, Iran is making sure that the deal survives under all circumstances.

He said he believed both sides were "on the right track" to make sure that the interests of the deal's "remaining participants, particularly Iran, will be preserved and guaranteed". "Our talks (with the E3) will continue in the next two weeks", he said, referring to Britain, France and Germany.

Immediately after the announcement of United States pullout from JCPOA, EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini emphasized that European Union will stay committed to JCPOA and consequently, UK, Germany and France published a joint statement separately to support Iran's nuclear deal.

Calling the accord as an "embarrassment" that was "defective at its core", Trump also warned of severe consequences if Iran resumes its nuclear programme.

He also described his meeting with Mogherini as constructive, adding that they had underlined the need for the full implementation of the JCPOA by all the remaining signatories and for providing guarantees to Iran that safeguard its benefits from the deal.

Before arriving in Brussels, Johnson told Britain's parliament that regime change in Iran was not a policy Britain should pursue.

On Saturday evening French president Emmanuel Macron phoned Trump to "take stock of trade issues and discuss the situation in the Near and Middle East", the Elysee said in a statement.

Annulment of the accord could tip the balance of power in favour of hardliners looking to constrain pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani's ability to open up to the West. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, not Rouhani, has the last say on all state matters. "We don't have much to threaten the Americans".

Speaking on Sunday in Beijing, Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined Tehran's readiness "for all options" but expressed optimism that this round of negotiations could save the 2015 deal.

The sanctions will target critical sectors of Iran's economy, including petrochemicals, energy and finance.

Saving the deal is going to rest heavily on ensuring these nations can combine efforts to block U.S. sanctions from preventing global companies doing business in Iran.

They include retaliatory sanctions, allowing the European Investment Bank to invest directly in Iran and coordinating euro-denominated credit lines from European governments.
