President Trump repeats misleading claim about Iran's military budget

Germany and France have significant trade links with Iran and remain committed to the nuclear agreement, as does Britain, and the three countries' foreign ministers plan to meet on Tuesday to discuss it.

She adds: "These facts are consistent with what the United States has long known: Iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people".

Trump also said he planned to reintroduce the highest level of economic sanctions on Iran.

The White House said Trump had spoken with French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday and "reiterated the need for a comprehensive deal that addresses all aspects of Iran's destabilzing activity in the Middle East".

US President Donald Trump spoke over the phone with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday.

In contradictory comments on Sunday, US officials both talked up the prospect of working with European allies while also warning European firms could be punished for continuing to do business in Iran.

And then there's Israel, a key U.S. ally that has been courted heavily by the Trump administration - including with the opening of the new U.S. Embassy to Israel in the contested holy city of Jerusalem on Monday - which is now engaged in an escalating series of confrontations with Iran in Syria.

If the European Union can not, in the face of American obstructionism, provide all the economic benefits that Iran secured as part of the JCPOA, it should have been much more vocal in stressing that Iran is fulfilling the agreement, while the USA is not.

"The repeated attacks by the Zionist regime on Syrian territory were carried out under pretexts that were invented", he added.

Washington, May 13 Countries that continue to deal with Iran could face American sanctions, the Trump administration said today, days after it announced its decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal.

He emphasized on CNN that his job now was to advise Trump and that the president would make the policy decisions.

After sanctions were eased as part of the nuclear agreement, Iran ramped up production to about 3.8 million barrels a day.

Days after its controversial decision to pull the US out of the Iran deal, the White House is condemning an Iranian rocket attack on Israeli-occupied land, the latest in a heated escalation between the longtime Middle East adversaries.

"I think that will sink in, and we'll see what happens then", he said.

They expect West Texas Intermediate, the most commonly cited USA contract, to trade $6 below the price of Brent in 2019.

"Some disillusionment has set in over the past two years, as Iranians have not been seeing as much economic benefit as many of them had hoped and expected", said Paul Pillar, a 28-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency and fellow in the Center for Security Studies at Georgetown University.

After long negotiations, Iran had agreed in July 2015 to freeze its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of punishing global sanctions. "Do we accept that the United States is the economic gendarme of the planet?" According to the law, foreign economic institutions conducting transactions with the central bank in Iran are prohibited from doing business with US -based financial institutions.
