"It is time for responsible nations to bring pressure on Iran to change this unsafe behavior", she added.

And on the weekend, PM Theresa May spoke with the Iranian president to clarify the UK's position of upholding the deal. The White House said both condemned the rocket attacks.

Iranian officials have threatened to resume enrichment.

The comments by Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami followed a week of escalating tensions that threaten to spill over into a wider conflict between the two bitter enemies.

On Thursday, Israel claimed it had struck nearly all of Iran's military capabilities in Syria after the rocket attack on the Golan Heights, which Israel annexed in 1981.

Protesters burned an American flag and railed against the U.S. and Israel after emerging from Friday prayers in Tehran.

But last week US President Donald Trump announced he was leaving the deal and reimposing sanctions. European leaders have signaled their commitment to the nuclear deal despite the U.S.'s withdrawal - though Bolton speculated Sunday that commitment could waver in the future.

Iran reiterated that no provisions or timeframes in the 2015 agreement "are negotiable in any manner".

"The Europeans have between 45 and 60 days to give the necessary guarantees to safeguard Iranian interests and compensate the damages caused by the United States pullout", Icana.ir reported.

Advisor to the President of the United States Donald trump on the issues of national security John Bolton made the imposition of sanctions against European companies because of the situation around the withdrawal from the agreement on Iran's nuclear program.

The statement was sharply critical of President Donald Trump, calling his administration "extremist" and the US withdrawal from the accord "unlawful". "They will never abandon the USA for us", said housewife Poormoslem at a protest against Trump on Friday. No regime loyalists would dare say it, especially to an American reporter, but Iranians are furious with their own government's failure to deliver basics like electricity, water and decent wages. The grouping includes Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.

"At present, Iran and the EU, as well as Russian Federation and China, are facing an important test to show to the world through cooperation that in some areas things can be done without the USA partnership", Majedi pointed out, emphasizing the importance of the commitment of Iran and the European states to continued implementation of the Iran nuclear deal despite the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from it.

Sebastian Vettel's struggles continue with 4th place at Spanish GP
Ten laps after the Ferraris had pitted, Hamilton ducked into the pits with nearly 20 seconds to spare ahead of the next auto . In fact, despite all the engineering and research, there's seldom a tyre that's ideal for everyone to go racing on.

It took more than 10 years for European Union and the member states - U.K., France and Germany - to create the deal, which with all its shortcomings did fulfill the objective.

Mogherini said Friday that "our determination is to keep this agreement in place. But as it is now, at least for the time being, we're the country that's isolated".

She added that the US can not undo the agreement by pulling out, saying: "this deal is not a bilateral treaty. She said it was important to avoid provocative actions to ensure peace and security in the region", BBC reported.

The Europeans and Iranians have now tasked experts to come up with measures quickly and will meet again in Vienna next week at a deputy foreign minister level.

Responding to the USA move, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, said Europe should not accept the former as the "world's economic policeman", or become nations that "obey decisions taken by the United States while clinging to the hem of their pants".

Theresa May has challenged Donald Trump on the impact of sanctions against Iran which will affect United Kingdom firms doing business there, amid a growing European backlash.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said that licences for its US rival Boeing Co to sell passenger jets to Iran would be revoked. Quite the contrary, it provided cover for Iran to continue its efforts.

And finally, there is the question of Iran itself-namely, how the consequences of President Trump's choice will play out in the medium to longer term there.

Trump pulled America out of the 2015 accord on Tuesday.

"Iran's Military Budget is up more than 40 percent since the Obama negotiated Nuclear Deal was reached. just another indicator that it was all a big lie".

Merkel said the Europeans aren't "blind" to threats posed by Iran's activities in Syria to Israel, for example. We are operating in a very hard context.
