Iran to reject any change to nuclear deal

Oil jumps after Trump fires Tillerson putting Iran in focus

Tillerson and his erstwhile cabinet ally Defense Secretary Jim Mattis had urged Trump to listen to the Europeans to preserve the agreement.

Iran's deputy foreign minister said Friday that if there are any new European sanctions imposed against Iran, it will have a direct effect on the nuclear deal established between world powers and Tehran, Reuters further reported.

Analysts say the nuclear agreement could collapse if Washington pulls out.

Zarif did not refer to the possibility of new European Union sanctions.

Tehran, however, has repeatedly said it will not renegotiate the nuclear deal.

It spoke of "intensive talks" with Washington to "achieve a clear and lasting reaffirmation of U.S. support for the agreement beyond May 12". "There is broad agreement on the areas that need strengthening, but how that's done in each of the three areas is the subject of our negotiations".

"There is a lot we agree on and where we disagree we are working to bridge our differences", he said in Vienna.

"Such a proliferation of Iranian missile capabilities throughout the region is an additional and serious source of concern", the document said.

Since the historic deal was signed in Vienna, the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed Iran's compliance with its commitments under the JCPOA, but some other parties, especially the U.S., have failed to live up to their undertakings.

His comments contrast with those of Iranian officials including President Hassan Rouhani, who has said Iran will stick with the agreement as long as it is beneficial for the country - even if the United States leaves.

In the joint document, Britain, France and Germany set out questions and answers that seek to show that legally, the European powers would not be breaking the terms of the 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".

In a January 13 cable, the State Department sketched out a path under which the three European allies would simply commit to try to improve the deal over time in return for Trump keeping the pact alive by renewing sanctions relief in May.

Former U.S. officials suggested that, as the administration nears a planned summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un about Pyongyang's nuclear program, it could rethink its stance on the Iran deal.
