Iran wants to bring home 300 million euros ($347 million) it has in the European-Iranian Trade Bank ahead of new U.S. sanctions set to be reimposed on Monday. Demonstrators in the capital chanted "death to the dictator", and there have also been rallies in Shiraz, Isfahan and the holy city of Qom.

But US President Donald Trump made a decision to reimpose punishing sanctions against Iran, whom he has accused of posing a security threat.

"Most have two passports and their families are overseas".

Under such circumstances negotiations can not be held, he said, adding that the Iranian people will resist the pressures and will conquer finally.

So far, social media reports suggest the current protests are far from the scale of the unrest seen in December and January, when at least 25 people were killed in demonstrations that spread to dozens of towns and cities.

NEW DELHI, Aug 2 (Reuters) - India's monthly oil imports from Iran surged by about 30 percent to a record 768,000 barrels per day (bpd) in July, as state refiners' intake surged ahead of US sanctions in November, preliminary tanker arrival data obtained by Reuters showed.

The deal was thrown into doubt by the USA decision to withdraw from a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers and reimpose sanctions, part of which are due to resume from Tuesday.

English also explained that by shopping local the sales bump up sales tax, which brings in even more businesses to the area. Rob McColley, R-Napoleon, expects Ohioans to save millions of dollars this year on back-to-school shopping.

The Associated Press reported that a shipment of five new ATR72-600 planes arrived in Tehran as part of a deal with a French-Italian manufacturer for 20 aircraft.

But all Iranians are concerned about the struggling economy, especially since the United States walked out of the nuclear deal in May and announced it would reimpose full sanctions in two stages.

The US administration has vowed to impose sanctions on any company continuing to buy oil from Iran after the November 4 deadline.

China's Unipec, the trading arm of state oil major Sinopec, has suspended imports of crude oil from the United States due to a growing trade spat between Washington and Beijing, three sources familiar with the situation said on Friday.

Iran says the sanctions are endangering lives by blocking the sale of new planes and spare parts for its ageing fleets.

People are growing increasingly angry over rising inflation and a dramatic plunge in the currency - the rial - which has lost almost two-thirds of its value in the past six months.
