Iran's foreign minister is due to land in Brussels later Tuesday on the final leg of a global tour rallying diplomatic support for the country's nuclear deal after the Trump administration's abrupt withdrawal.

European companies did not have an immediate have a reaction to possibility that they would have to cease operations in Iran or be barred from doing business with the USA other than to say in statements that they were monitoring the situation.

Khamenei said this week he is highly doubtful that Europe will provide the "real guarantees" needed for Iran to stay in the nuclear deal.

Trump has said the United States would be reinstating the anti-Iran bans lifted under the JCPOA and also slapping the "highest level" of economic sanctions on Tehran, prompting anger among other parties to the Iran deal, which unanimously denounced Washington and vowed to stay committed to their side of the deal. He also said Iran should receive economic benefits promised in the accord, even if the U.S. reinstates sanctions.

"This was an agreement which was deliberately kept narrow to deal with Iran's nuclear program".

Add that trump intends to immediately impose sanctions against any foreign companies that will do business with Iran. Zarif is scheduled to meet the British, French and German foreign ministers on May 15 in Brussels.

"I am hopeful in the days and weeks ahead we can come up with a deal that really works, that really protects the world from Iranian bad behavior, " Pompeo said.

Macron and Trump also discussed trade issues.

Europeans are going to face the effect of US sanctions already really because much of what they'd like to sell to Iran involves US technology for which the licenses will not be available, ” US National Security Advisor John Bolton said.

China was closely involved in negotiating the agreement as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and has always been a close Iranian economic partner, buying about a third of Iran's oil shipments.

The head of the influential Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, said: "I hope recent events will lead us to end our trust in the West and the Europeans".

Coogler also cited the likes of Lamar, DuVernay and Donald Glover's "Atlanta" for pushing him, indirectly, on " Black Panther ". He's a black man who's unaffected by colonization. "I would watch a movie with them!"

Trump on May 8 announced his intention to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, calling the multilateral pact "defective at its core" and unable to fully prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Under the deal, Iran was also left free to develop long-range missiles that can threaten other countries in the Middle East, including several Arab countries.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif talks to the media as he leaves after a meeting with European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini at the EU Council in Brussels, Belgium, May 15, 2018.

"It's reminiscent of the saying attributed to Vladimir Lenin that the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we'll hang them", he said.

Finance ministers in France and Germany pushed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to grant extensions or waivers to businesses that made lucrative deals with Tehran in the period that sanctions were lifted.
