Pompeo's Anti-Iran Speech Reveals Bankruptcy of US: Zarif

Iran lists tough conditions for Europe to save nuclear deal

He also said that Pompeo's false comments have been based upon the United States old and failed policies that were expressed only more brazenly and harshly this time.

The group's statement follows remarks made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday regarding Washington's new strategy on Iran, which included imposing "the strongest sanctions in history" on Tehran if it does not comply with demands to end its nuclear program.

He spoke two weeks after President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal that had lifted sanctions on Iran in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wants to meet with European allies in the next few weeks to discuss a comprehensive strategy towards Iran after the withdrawal of the US from the global nuclear agreement with Tehran.

"The current USA president [Donald Trump] will meet the same fate as his predecessors, Bush and the neoconservatives and Reagan, and will vanish from history", he said in the statement released on Tuesday. The deal, which Trump called the "worst deal ever", trades sanctions relief for a rollback in Iran's nuclear program. He emphasized that the "futile" United States efforts to limit the Tehran's strength indicates Washington's weakness and is a clear indication of Iran's power in domestic and foreign arenas.

The United States' European allies, which have many economic links with Tehran, have been particularly frustrated.

Scrapping the deal could mean Iran reboots its programme to develop long-range nuclear weapons, putting the security of surrounding nations, namely Israel, at hightened risk of attack.

However, in Paris, France's foreign minister said the U.S. decision to scrap the Iran nuclear deal would strengthen Tehran's hardliners and endanger the region.

"Whether Iranian forces or Hezbollah withdraw or stay in Syria is not up for discussion because it's the [business] of the Syrian government", Mekdad said in an interview with Russia's Sputnik state news agency.
