Iran says "active resistance" is an antidote to Trump's warnings

Iran says

On Tuesday, European powers issued a statement on Iran breaking through its stockpile limit, calling on Tehran "to reverse this step and to refrain from further measures that undermine the nuclear deal".

When asked whether a symbolic trade mechanism planned by Europe would soon begin to offer at least some pharmaceutical and food transfers, von der Muhll said the European powers were not sparing any effort, but that it was not exclusively up to them to ensure Iran reaped the economic benefits of the deal.

In this April 9, 2018 file photo, released by an official website of the office of the Iranian Presidency, President Hassan Rouhani listens to explanations on new nuclear achievements at a ceremony to mark 'National Nuclear Day, ' in Tehran, Iran.

President Hassan Rouhani announced that after July 7 Iran would enrich uranium beyond a fissile purity of 3.67%, which is the maximum allowed by the deal and a level which is deemed suitable for electricity generation.

Iran announced Wednesday it will increase its level of uranium enrichment after July 7 beyond the 3.67 per cent cap set in the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.

That seems to be exactly where Iran is going.

"On July 7, our enrichment level will no longer be 3.67%".

Under the JCPOA, Zarif noted, a party may "cease performing its commitments.in whole or in part", in the event of "significant non-performance" by other signatories. Today, I also call on all European states: Stand by your commitments.

The move, she said, was aimed at increasing pressure on European powers, China and Russian Federation to compensate Iran for the impact of USA sanctions reimposed by Trump after he renounced the deal. America began reinstating sanctions shortly after leaving the JCPOA.

According to police, the helicopter (N32DCC) took off from Big Grand Cay around 2am yesterday, on its way to Florida. He had a desire to show that somebody from West Virginia could be as successful as anybody out there", Hamrick said.


Iran shot down a United States military surveillance drone and then publicly boasted about the huge cost to the enemy. Senator Lindsey Graham echoed that sentiment on Sunday.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said, "As we have repeatedly stressed, the U.S". The world should not tolerate a nuclear armed Iran.

Trump on Monday said he thinks Iran is "playing with fire" by breaching the stockpile limit. "Israel will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons, even if it has to act alone on that", Katz said.

"Our advice to Europe and the United States is to go back to logic and to the negotiating table", Rouhani said in a televised address to his Cabinet. "Feeding the Iranian tiger will not help; only an aggressive policy and sanctions and support for the US policy will quickly show that it is a paper tiger", Katz said.

Last month, Mr Trump imposed hard-hitting new sanctions on Iran, including on the office of the country's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and in April it designated the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a foreign terrorist organisation. So I tell you: Do so, go do it.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Monday that Iran's low-grade enriched uranium stockpile has exceeded 300 kg. They know what they're doing. "So, no message to Iran whatsoever".

"Be careful with the threats, ' Trump warned in a tweet Wednesday".

Fears of a military conflict breaking out remain high.
