  • North Korea Lashes U.S. Over Sanctions

The worldwide community has widely criticized Washington following U.S. President Donald Trump's withdrawal from a major nuclear pact and resumption of sanctions on Iran.

"China has consistently opposed unilateral sanctions and long-armed jurisdiction", the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Wednesday, addressing Trump's decision Monday to reimpose sanctions on Tehran.

North Korea has been pursuing its weapons programmes in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions and sanctions.

More broadly, Votel condemned Iran for its continued efforts to destabilise other countries in the region, including Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

Turkey, however, said it would continue to buy natural gas from Iran.

Daimler, the maker of Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicles, announced as soon as the sanctions became effective on Tuesday that it has suspended its "activities in Iran in accordance with applicable sanctions until further notice".

Ri's two-day trip to Iran is just the latest example of North Korea's diplomatic offensive this year.

As many as 12 projects in Iran's petroleum sector have been presented to Russia's Gazprom, Rosneft, Gazprom Neft, Zarubezhneft, Taftneft and Lukoil for development.

Rouhani in a meeting with visiting North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-hu on Wednesday again criticized the USA for its withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

The statement dismissed United States hopes to browbeat Iran into submission through exerting fresh pressures on the country.


Commission deputy chief spokesperson Mina Andreeva said: "They are free to choose whether to start working, continue working or cease business operations in Iran ... on the basis of their assessment of the economic situation".

President Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal in May, calling it "disaster".

So, how are people in Iran coping? They had also proposed setting up accounts for the Central Bank of Iran in their national banks, he added.

However, Mr. Lautwein said it isn't likely to bring a wave of lawsuits.

British Foreign Office Minister Alastair Burt said that the "Americans have really not got this right".

They also said that "the European Union's updated Blocking Statute enters into force on August 7 to protect EU companies doing legitimate business with Iran from the impact of US extra-territorial sanctions".

"Imagine negotiating now - how can we trust them?" He also told journalists the United States is being hypocritical. "America has zig-zagged constantly, so now no one trusts them".

The office of Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats declined to comment Tuesday on the likelihood that Iran will answer the sanctions with cyber operations against the US When the US pulled out of the nuclear deal, the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a warning saying that hackers in Iran "could potentially use a range of computer network operations - from scanning networks for potential vulnerabilities to data-deletion attacks - against US-based networks in response to the US government's withdrawal" from the nuclear pact.

"There is a big difference this time", said Zarif. Iran's support for terrorists and deception surrounding its nuclear program must end once and for all.
