Tillerson's Departure Will Embolden Saudi Adventurism

Iran agreed to curbs on its nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of a number of sanctions as part of the deal.

Trump's 2018 statement came after he fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and amid continuing threats to pull out of the nuclear accord with Iran before May.

President Trump delivered a blistering criticism of Iran's regime Monday in a message marking Nowruz, the Persian new year.

"The Iran deal is bad for us and the world for many reasons, especially its 10-year limit, which leaves only seven years left", Steinitz said.

"All three, but also Russia, China, the United States and Iran, just assessed on Friday that the deal is being implemented and that we all stay committed to its full implementation", Mogherini said Monday at the Foreign Affairs Council in response to a question regarding France, the UK and Germany aim to sanction Iran. "A sentiment that is particularly meaningful for so many Iranians who have come to our country in recent decades to make a new start in a free land".

Speaking to reporters before a meeting of European Union foreign ministers Monday, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian seemed to indicate Paris was seeking agreement to up sanctions on Iran.

Britain, France and Germany have proposed new European Union sanctions on Iran over its missile program and its regional role, a confidential document said on Friday, Reuters reported.

"But we must not exclude [from consideration] Iran's responsibility in the proliferation of ballistic missiles and in its very questionable role in the Near and Middle East", he said.

Netanyahu also spoke over the phone with German Foreign Minister Heiku Maas and congratulated him on his new position.

The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reported that Iran rejected any negotiations on the nuclear deal or its ballistic missile program.

The confidential document cites "transfers of Iranian missiles and missile technology" to Syria and allies of Tehran, such as Houthi rebels in Yemen and Lebanon's Shi'ite Hezbollah.

Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad, 38, was charged in a six-count indictment filed in federal court in Manhattan accusing him of a role in a scheme to evade USA economic sanctions against Iran, prosecutors said.

In the message marking the start of the spring New Year's festival, Trump said he was announcing that the Treasury Department would issue guidance "reaffirming America's support for the free flow of information to the citizens of Iran" and that the US would hold the regime accountable for cyber-attacks overseas.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Twitter accused the West of "sheer hypocrisy" in selling large quantities of weapons to countries in the region while "whining about Iran's defensive missiles".
