According to O Sullivan, where they will begin to develop a "coherent and consistent policy measures for the conservation of European business interests in Iran, while protecting your investment from the U.S. sanctions".

Iran has said it would remain in the JCPOA for now, pending negotiations with the other signatories in the coming weeks before making a final decision on its future role in the agreement.

Speaking to Fox News Sunday, Mike Pompeo said: "The sanctions regime that is in place now is very clear on what the requirements are".

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

OPEC is in no hurry to decide whether to pump more oil to make up for an expected drop in exports from Iran after the imposition of new U.S. sanctions, four sources familiar with the issue said, saying any loss in supply would take time.

The E.U. exported €10.8 billion in goods to Iran in 2017, and a number of European companies, including Siemens and Airbus, have signed deals with Iran.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, speaking in Dublin, declared: "We are stakeholders" and will remain so.

And Germany said it will spend the next few months trying to persuade Washington to change its mind. "The Foreign Ministry believes the USA will not change its mind".

"Should the governments decide to comply with USA demands, the refineries - as was seen in Europe and Japan - will have to make the necessary adjustments to process crude from other countries", Emadi said.

"I would like our debate to reconfirm without any doubt that as long as Iran respects the provisions of the deal, the European Union will also respect it", Tusk said in a letter to the leaders on the eve of the summit. "Now, that will not happen!"

Oil reached $78 a barrel on Thursday, its highest since November 2014, two days after President Donald Trump said the United States was abandoning an worldwide nuclear deal with Iran and would impose new sanctions.

The White House backed Israel's claims, accusing Iran of "reckless actions" that posed a "severe threat" to stability in the Middle East.

"We are not scared of sanctions", Ryabkov said. Citing data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the newspaper explained that Iranian military spending has increased by only about 30 percent from 2015, the year the Iran deal was reached, to last year. CBS News reported that Macron's office said the two leaders spoke on Saturday and the French leader expressed his "great concern about stability' in the region".

As a private citizen, Bolton in the past has suggested that the United States push for a change in government in Iran. But in an interview aired on the ABC's This Week program, Bolton said, "That's not the policy of the administration".

The recent talks between the US and European diplomats on how to fix the current Iran agreement foundered on the question of how to address the easing beginning in eight years of the nuclear constraints. Hence we should carefully and smartly watch the positions of the European Union, and especially the three countries of Germany, France and Britain on Iran's nuclear and missile programs to be able to take the proper decision and measures.

"If I can use the metaphor that some raised around the table, we all have a relative in intensive care and we all want to get him or her out of intensive care as soon as possible", she said. On Wednesday, a separate OPEC source had said Saudi Arabia was monitoring the impact of the USA move on oil supplies and was ready to offset any shortage but would not act alone.

"However, if they resist the pressure from America, then I expect to see a small number of refineries being targeted by the U.S. treasury - imposing heavy fines on them to make an example for other refineries".
