Iran: China "pivotal" to salvaging its nuclear deal

"I've heard of four German pharmaceutical firms who are looking to come to Iran specifically to piss off the U.S.".

The U.S. walked out of the 2015 nuclear deal in May and is bringing back "maximum pressure" sanctions for most sectors on August 6, and the energy sector on November 4.

The U.S. State Department said on its Persian-language Twitter account: "While it is ultimately up to the #people_of_Iran to determine their country's path, #America supports the voice of the Iranian people, which has been ignored for a long time".

Pompeo, speaking with reporters returning with him from an Asian trip, said the White House would detail implementation of the measures on Monday morning.

Despite opposition from European allies, Trump in May pulled the United States out of a 2015 deal between world powers and Tehran under which worldwide sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear programme.

Well, in the case of the Iran deal reached during former President Obama's administration, Oman played a big part in making sure that panned out.

Iran will ease foreign exchange rules, state TV reported on Sunday, in a bid to halt a collapse of the rial currency, which has lost half its value since April due to fears about the return of USA sanctions. Major demonstrations have taken place in several cities in recent days against the country's economic woes and public buildings have been damaged amid widespread anger against the regime.

In his open letter to Trump, Jafari went further, saying, "The Iranian nation has many differences with those nations that submit to domination, and will never allow its authorities to hold talks and meetings with the Great Satan", referring to the United States. The downturn has sparked waves of protests across Iran.

Protests have broken out in Iran since the beginning of the year over high prices, water shortage, power cuts and alleged corruption.

Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launched his own rhetorical assault on Iran's leaders, promising unspecified backing for Iranians unhappy with their government. That's what America is trying to get Iran to stop doing.

The move, which the Central Bank of Iran will execute in collaboration with local knowledge-based organizations, will begin with the main objective of clearing bank transactions.
