Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Russian Federation has confirmed its preparedness to respect the seven-party nuclear agreement reached in 2015 despite the USA pullout.

Mr Zarif said on his first stop, China, that he hoped to secure a "clear future design" for the agreement.

JCPOA was implemented in 2016 after five permanent members of UN Security Council, China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and US plus Germany reached an agreement with Rouhani's government to lift worldwide sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic in exchange for Tehran to curb its nuclear program.

Khamenei said on Wednesday that Iran does not trust France, Germany and the United Kingdom to provide the "real guarantees" needed for Iran to remain in the agreement.

Part of the flaw with the Iran deal that President Trump rejected was it enticed Europe and the United States into economic relations with Iran that would work against holding the country accountable for violations of the agreement, Bolton said. "We will have to see whether (those) remaining in the JCPOA can deliver those benefits to Iran", he said.

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

Martinez Drives In 3, Sox Win
The Red Sox are 10-2 in their last 12 games in Toronto and are 15-7 in their last 22 games versus the Blue Jays overall. John Axford came on to face Martinez in the fifth, and Martinez greeted him with an RBI single, scoring Betts.

These questions get at the heart of whether the Iran nuclear deal can continue without the support of the US.

He will later head to Moscow and Brussels.

The 2015 agreement "is delivering on its goal, which is guaranteeing that Iran doesn't develop nuclear weapons, the European Union is determined to preserve it", Mogherini said, warning that she was "particularly worried" by the USA announcement of fresh sanctions.

China was closely involved in negotiating the agreement as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and has always been a close Iranian economic partner, buying about a third of Iran's oil shipments.

After the President Donald Trump announced his withdrawal from the Iran deal, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said his decision was "disappointing".

"There are reasons for concern over recent events, I mean a nuclear deal with Iran", he said.

The deal's proponents say it is crucial to forestalling a nuclear Iran and preventing wider war in the Middle East.

Before leaving, Zarif published a government statement on his Twitter page, slamming the "extremist administration" of US President Donald Trump for abandoning "an accord recognised as a victory of diplomacy by the global community".

But European diplomats briefed on the Brussels meeting acknowledged that the EU support, however honest, risked looking hollow after Trump last week reimposed an array of wide sanctions on the Islamic Republic that will hit European companies investing in Iran.

The foreign ministers of the three European powers will meet their Iranian counterpart in Brussels on Tuesday to discuss a way forward.

Bolton expressed optimism that European allies will follow Trump's lead and exit the deal, despite the assertions of the leaders of France, the United Kingdom, and Germany that they intend to remain in the agreement.
