The International Monetary Fund has said it expects the Iranian economy to shrink by 6 per cent in 2019.

"Nobody is going to call Trump, and eventually the Americans will be forced to raise the issue of negotiations with Iran in a serious way", he added. "I want them to be strong and great and have a great economy", he said.

CENTCOM, the U.S. forces for the Middle East and Afghanistan, said Friday on Twitter that the B-52 bombers arrived at the area of operations on May 8, without saying where they had landed.

Trump may be engaging in a coordinated good cop-bad cop scenario, but people familiar with the matter say the disconnect may be driven in part by differences in Trump's world view and his advisers'. President Trump has been very clear about that: "Our response will be appropriate".

Are U.S. sanctions and pressure on Iran working?

Meanwhile, Mohammad Javad Abtahi, MP for Khomeyni Shahr, told IRGC-linked news agency Tasnim, "General Salami who was present at the Majles today, stressed that Iran will not start any war". Iran's Shiite theocracy views the presence of U.S. forces in the region with suspicion, while the United States views Iran's arming and training of forces and proxies throughout the Middle East as a destabilizing force in the region.

Those trying to push Iran to the brink will be more than satisfied that it is taking bait, though at a slower pace. "And then use that", Zarif said.

Washington said on Saturday it was deploying an amphibious assault ship and a Patriot missile battery to bolster an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers already sent to the Gulf.

There was worldwide concern a year ago that U.S. withdrawal from the Iran agreement would make crude oil prices spike.

In fact, the U.S. Navy carrier group had been set to sail to the Middle East a month earlier, on a routine deployment.

But Iran is wary of Europe, noting the monthslong delay in opening a new payment mechanism launched in January, created to enable "legitimate" trade in pharmaceuticals and food, for example, which would bypass US sanctions on Iran.

A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander said on Sunday the us military presence in the Gulf used to be a serious threat but now represented a target, the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA) reported. Taken together, they "may provoke a response", he warned.

President Donald Trump's foreign policy challenges are mounting around the world, showing the limits of his self-touted ability to make a deal and perhaps the difficulty of focusing primarily on domestic concerns for his "America first" administration.

While Trump called for talks on Thursday, he did not rule out military action against Iran.

State television showed the protesters marching after Friday prayers in Tehran and said similar marches were held across the country.

Iranian officials rebuffed President Donald Trump's suggestion that they call him to try to defuse frictions as the USA ratcheted up its actions against Tehran.

"You don't meet for a photo op", he remarked.

Bolton's time to shine has finally come. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

A diplomatic source tells CNN that the Swiss probably won't give the number to the Iranians unless asked, something the Iranians are highly unlikely to do, he says.

The State Department did not reply to a request for comment.

"All of a sudden he (Trump) made a decision to leave the negotiating table ..."

"I actually temper John", he said to laughter.

If they fail, he said, Iran will consider higher levels of enrichment and expand again its nuclear infrastructure, likely making the deal fall apart.

Other senior officials around Trump have indicated there's no plan for conflict with Iran.

Salami was appointed head of the Guards last month, and is seen as critical to how prepared Iran might be to test United States military resolve.
