Countries that continue to deal with Iran could face American sanctions, the Trump administration said today, days after it announced its decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal.

"Iran's Military Budget is up more than 40% since the Obama negotiated Nuclear Deal was reached.just another indicator that it was all a big lie".

Zarif later told a joint news conference with Lavrov that "the final aim of these negotiations is to seek assurances that the interests of the Iranian nation will be safeguarded".

President Trump last Tuesday followed through on his threat to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal - ignoring pleas from allies, nuclear nonproliferation experts, Republican lawmakers and some members of his own national security team.

"I hope and believe that these visits to multiple countries will improve countries', including China's, understanding of Iran's position", Wang said.

A number of European companies, including Airbus, Siemens and Total, had established operations in Iran since the signing of the deal.

But he added: "If the nuclear deal is to continue, the interests of the people of Iran must be assured".

Meanwhile, Lavrov said that Russian Federation and Europe had a duty to "jointly defend their legal interests" in terms of the Iran deal.

"[New Zealand companies] will lose in this sanction, we can buy, for example butter, from many other countries, that is why it is not in favour of New Zealand, it will not serve the New Zealand companies' interests".

During talks with the Chinese foreign minister, Zarif pointed to good relations between Tehran and Beijing after the JCPOA implementation started in 2016, saying, "We are confident that China will stand by Iran".

Representatives in the industry had already expressed their concern about difficulties exporting to Iran, the minister said.

They include retaliatory sanctions, allowing the European Investment Bank to invest directly in Iran and co-ordinating euro-denominated credit lines from European governments.

"Considering the fact that the European Union member states have made the most requests that after America's withdrawal it wants to stay in the JCPOA, we should see how these countries ensure that the interests of Iran will be guaranteed despite America's pullout", he stated.
