Mogherini: Europe seeking quick solution to save Iran nuclear deal

But while France said it was ready to fight the US sanctions with European countermeasures, German officials said each company will have to examine the legal implications of continuing business in Iran and make their own decision about whether to stay in Iran or honor the USA sanctions.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, speaking in Dublin, declared: "We are stakeholders" and will remain so.

Britain, France and Germany are working to secure measures to protect European countries working in Iran against the danger of USA sanctions after President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal.

France, he said, is "totally determined" to "make our economic interests respected and to respect one principle, which is the refusal of extra-territorial sanctions".

"Do we accept extraterritorial sanctions? The answer is no".

The Iranian foreign minister's conversation with Asselborn came as the former is visiting Brussels to attend a trilateral meeting with his French, British, and German counterparts as well as the European Union foreign policy chief on the fate of the Iran nuclear deal. "We're on the right track to ensure that the interests of all parties, especially Iran, will be secured", he added.

It follows a visit by the Iranian diplomat to Beijing on Sunday where he stressed the importance of keeping the accords, which were signed in 2015 with the aim of both halting Tehran's nuclear ambitions and stimulating the country's economy.

Supporters of the deal say that Iran has complied with its requirements, and insist it is the only realistic alternative to military force as a means of halting Tehran's nuclear program. Europeans fear a collapse of the deal could intensify conflicts in the Middle East. The minister said he wanted France, Germany and Britain to reach out to the USA administration and ask for "exemptions, additional deadlines, or to respect the contracts that have been agreed in good faith by our businesses in Iran".

"We could have pushed the Europeans a lot harder, to work with us, " Gates said on "Face the Nation".

Iranian hardliners - who have long opposed President Hassan Rouhani's moves to improve ties with the West - are already mobilizing against the efforts to save the nuclear deal.

"We have started an intensive process [and] the economic benefits inside the JCPOA should be preserved for Iran", Zarif said. Moscow has previously stated its strong support for the agreement.

The Middle Eastern power has also accused others of remaining silent over the attacks on its key regional ally. The worldwide community's silence encourages Israel's aggression.

"A number of topical worldwide problems, including Syria, were touched upon", the Foreign Ministry said. It cited, for instance, Trump's earlier dumping of the Paris climate change agreement with a promise to provide a better deal that he hasn't fulfilled. Israeli Defence Minister Lieberman asked Syria to "get rid of the Iranians" to avoid further such air strikes. Israeli and Iranian forces have already clashed in southern Syria, and Netanyahu's government is now threatening further action in response to reports that Russian Federation may furnish Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with S-300 anti-aircraft missiles.
