Severe economic pressure sows discontent in Iran

  • Turkey will keep importing Iranian crude

Speaking in the meeting held in Paris on Saturday, Giuliani, the former NY mayor, called for a regime change in Iran.

In Paris, the head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Maryam Rajavi, said the fall of the Iranian regime was certain, emphasizing a number of indications, including street protests and mounting calls for change at the political, social and economic levels.

The fear of sanctions, which Giuliani said would be increased, has already seen major companies leave Iran despite Europe vowing to save the accord.

"Other than this, we will only follow our own national interests", Turkey's Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said as quoted by daily Hurriyet, adding that "we will pay attention so our friend Iran will not face any unfair actions".

In a change from Iran's generally anti-Semitic stance, Iranian protesters were chanting "Death to Palestine!"

Trump on meeting Putin: 'I'll talk to him about everything'
On " Meet the Press ", Graham said he supports the meeting but hopes Trump will come out strongly against Russia's actions. President Donald Trump are scheduled to hold their first one-on-one summit in Helsinki on July 16.

Rudy Giuliani has strongly criticized European democracies' will to maintain the Iran nuclear deal after the USA decision to pull out from the accord.

"They are exerting economic pressure to sow division between the nation and the regime", he said.

During the Thursday meeting, Ansari, who was also serving as the special envoy of the Iranian president, conveyed Hassan Rouhani's verbal message on the Iran nuclear deal to Brazilian President Michel Temer.

"I think we really had some substantive talks on Iran".

"They bring to bear economic pressure to separate the nation from the system. but six U.S. presidents before him tried this and had to give up", Khamenei was quoted as saying by Khamenei.ir, referring to Trump.

Gingrich, Giuliani and other United States politicians have been well paid to speak at the annual Paris rally in recent years. Our goal is what it always has been: "to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons and to break the cash machine that the agreement awarded Iran, which finances its aggression in the region including Syria". However, the protests earlier this year took place largely in Iran's provinces rather than in Tehran.

Protests have surfaced in Iran as economic difficulties mount in the wake of Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal and the subsequent pullout of companies anxious of facing US sanctions.

The latest protests follow dozens over the new year that left at least 25 people dead.

Three days of protests in Tehran and other cities began on Sunday when hundreds of traders in the bazaar - the hub of merchants who backed Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution that ousted the longtime monarch - closed their shops to voice their anger at currency plunges.

In 2009, the European Union struck the Mujahideen from its list of terrorist organisations, where it had been since 2002. The United States did the same in 2012.
