Iran minister on diplomatic tour to save nuclear deal

Iran vows to restart nuclear program if deal collapses

These reported remarks come as Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif embarked on a diplomatic tour to try and save the nuclear deal.

After their meeting, Zarif and Wang hailed the "comprehensive strategic partnership" between their countries, with the Chinese minister saying: "I hope and believe that these visits to multiple countries will. help protect Iran's legitimate national interests and peace and stability in the region".

"China is highly concerned with the direction of the Iranian nuclear issue and is willing to maintain communication with all relevant parties, including Iran", said Geng Shuang, spokesman for China's Foreign Ministry.

Zarif is now on a tour of the countries that are the parties to the agreement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to hold consultations to salvage the deal.

Heiko Maas, the German foreign minister, said he feared that European Union negotiations with Mr Zarif and later with...

In Beijing on Sunday, Zarif said he was hopeful of forging a "clear future design" for the deal to save it from collapse, after US President Donald Trump withdrew from it on Tuesday.

Russian Federation has also criticised Trump's decision, with Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov alleging the move was "protectionism in disguise", in comments made on Thursday to state news agency TASS.

"It's really annoying that the Iranian government is never blamed for the really bad decisions they have taken lately concerning business, and only the sanctions are blamed", she said.

Before leaving, Zarif published a government statement on his Twitter page, slamming the "extremist administration" of Trump for abandoning "an accord recognised as a victory of diplomacy by the worldwide community".

He will then go to Brussels to meet counterparts from Germany, Britain and France "about the fate of the nuclear deal", Iranian state television said.

Meanwhile, European diplomats in Tehran fumed that Trump's decision to withdraw from the deal could undermine years of patient work to restore commercial and diplomatic ties with the Islamic Republic. Iran wants the Europeans and others to give it clear-cut guarantees about fulfilling their obligations if Tehran remains in the deal.

"China, of course, the first economic partner of Iran".
