07 August, 2018, 15:31
Responding to Mr. Trump's comments, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that Washington's call for new nuclear negotiations at the same time the USA reimposes crippling sanctions "makes no sense".
European allies said they "deeply regret" the United States action.
Trump said he was open to reaching a more comprehensive deal with Iran "that addresses the full range of the regime´s malign activities, including its ballistic missile program and its support for terrorism".
Trump government officials blame the nuclear deal signed under former president Barack Obama for providing the revenue for Iran to fund its regional activities.

Most Iranians see U.S. hostility as a basic fact of life, so their frustration is largely directed at their own leaders for not handling the situation better.
Trump renewed his attack on the worldwide nuclear pact, calling it "a awful, one-sided deal" that "failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb", while giving it "a lifeline of cash" when earlier sanctions were lifted.
"If the ayatollahs want to get out from under the squeeze, they should come and sit down".
Rouhani said that Trump's call for direct negotiations with Iran were "only for domestic consumption in America. and to create chaos in Iran".

He dismissed a USA call for talks, saying "we are always in favour of diplomacy and talks..."
