Trump speech 'silly and superficial', Iran's Supreme Leader says

It has been estimated that despite sanctions in place prior to the deal, at least $1bn in cash was smuggled into Iran through front companies in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates and Iraq.

"We hope that with this visit to China and other countries we will be able to construct a clear future design for the comprehensive agreement", Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters after talks in Beijing with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Leader of the Islamic Revolution, told visiting Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena on Sunday that Asian countries should enhance cooperation in a bid to boost their strength, The Tehran Times reported.

Al Jazeera correspondent Zein Basravi said that while the "moderate" wing of the country's ruling establishment want to emphasise diplomacy to deal with the issue, there is more anger among the hardliners.

Extending warm greetings of his government and nation to the Supreme Iranian Leader, the President said "During our talks today, we made a decision to multiply cooperation and activities between our countries, and implement the agreements signed between Iranian and Sri Lankan officials".

Ayatollah Khamenei further voiced distrust in the three European signatories to the JCPOA - Britain, France and Germany, which stressed commitment to the agreement following Trump's pullout, and called on Iran to continue abiding by its nuclear-related obligations. It's unclear how Iran, which is not a US ally, got ahold of it.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, speaking in Dublin, declared: "We are stakeholders" and will remain so.

"They were shifting the balance of power in the Middle East until President Trump got out of this deal". Trump has repeatedly pointed to those omissions in referring to the accord as the "worst deal ever". "Now, that will not happen!"

Trump has referenced the amount of money the US has spent in the Middle East in the past. "They [some officials] said this was not true".

He also described Trump's decision as "silly", "impudent" and "worthless".

"The policy of the administration is to make sure that Iran never gets close to deliverable nuclear weapons", he added.

Asked if Washington was now advocating for regime change in Iran, Bolton responded that it was not administration policy.

Khamenei said the nuclear issue was "just an excuse" by the U.S. to dominate Iran, and that its "real reason" in signing up to the 2015 agreement is to make it bow to American demands.

Bolton said Europe was still digesting Trump's move last week.
