Iran dismisses United States talks offer as Trump reimposes sanctions

Trump pulled the US out of the deal limiting Iran's nuclear activities.

Moscow said the multi-party nuclear agreement Trump abandoned in May has "shown its effectiveness".

Rouhani said Monday, "I don't have preconditions".

The Iranian people will be the ones to suffer most from the new sanctions, analysts say.

"We have suspended our already limited activities in Iran in accordance with the applicable sanctions", a spokeswoman said.

But Rouhani said, "The person who is claiming to be willing to negotiate today has withdrawn from all global commitments, from [the] Paris Agreement (on climate change) to its business commitments with other countries". "If the ayatollahs want to get out from under the squeeze, they should come and sit down".

Trump said the new sanctions target the Islamic Republic's automotive sector, its trade in gold and other precious metals, along with its currency, the Iranian rial, and other financial transactions.

The US president announced America will ban imports of pistachios and rugs from the country after pulling out of the nuclear deal earlier this year.

He also reiterated that on November 5, the United States would also resume sanctions against Iran's energy-related transactions, as well as business conducted by foreign financial institutions with the Central Bank of Iran.

"Talk to anyone, anywhere in the world and they will tell you that (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu, (US President Donald) Trump and (Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed) bin Salman are isolated, not Iran", he said.

Conor McGregor Issues Statement On Plea Deal
Nurmagomedov, the current 155-pound champion, was on the bus and said he had to be restrained to keep from fighting McGregor. He is accused of throwing a metal handcart at a bus carrying UFC fighters at an event in Brooklyn in April.


He said the USA has long designated Iran as the world's foremost state sponsor of terrorism.

Mr Trump's tweet places pressure on European countries struggling to withdraw business connections established after the 2015 deal.

"We are always in favour of diplomacy and talks... but talks need honesty".

European countries fear that by abandoning the deal, Washington risks undermining Rouhani and strengthening the hand of his more hardline opponents, who have long argued that the West would never allow Iran to prosper.

"There's a lot going on here that Iran needs to be held accountable for", he said.

The Iran sanctions have officially been cast.

"[Sanctions] will definitely make daily life harder for Iranians", said Saeed Leylaz, a Tehran-based economist and political analyst.

Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt has moved to reassure businesses they will not face legal action in connection with deals with Iranian firms. "But if the government has a serious plan they can control the situation".

A senior administration official, briefing reporters under ground rules requiring anonymity, said the United States is "not particularly concerned" by EU efforts to protect European firms from the sanctions. "Consistent with President Trump's decision, the administration will be reimposing specified sanctions after August 6, the final day of the 90-day wind-down period", the White House said.

"So for the moment the choice is already made by most of these companies to pull out of Iran, despite the threat of the European Union to sue them for doing so", Euronews' Brussels correspondent Bryan Carter reported for Good Morning Europe.
