Collapse of Iran nuclear deal would be 'great loss', IAEA tells Trump

Iranian university students gathered at Tehran's global Mehrabad airport at on Sunday night to protest Le Drian's visit and his remarks against the country's missile program, calling on Tehran to continue progress "in defense fields".

"If the JCPOA were to fail, it would be a great loss for nuclear verification and for multilateralism".

His statements have not been warmly received in Iran, with Zarif telling Monday's reformist Etemad newspaper: "In order to keep the United States in the Iran nuclear deal, European countries are suffering from extremism and this will ultimately undermine Europe's policy".

Iran honors its commitment to the treaty to limit its nuclear development plan as the International Atomic Energy Agency has certified on nine occasions.

Iran has long said publicly that it intends to develop nuclear propulsion for naval vessels, though analysts and diplomats say that remains a distant prospect.

The Iranian foreign minister also criticized some European countries for "being influenced under US pressures" over Iran's nuclear deal and missile program. It formally notified the IAEA of that intention in January in what was widely seen as a rebuff to pressure from Trump.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian was in Iran as part of a European drive to salvage the nuclear deal with Iran that President Donald Trump is threatening to scuttle and the Islamic Republic has said it may be forced to abandon.

From his first meeting with a military uniform-clad official, Jean-Yves Le Drian's one-day trip highlighted the challenge Paris faces in challenging Iran while at the same time trying to keep the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers intact.

Iran's atomic authority warned that they could produce highly enriched uranium in just two days, should the United States bow out of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), meant to put a halt to Tehran's atomic ambitions, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

The deal is "international diplomatic achievement", and it should be protected, he stressed.

In the meantime, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani on Monday urged the European countries not to bend under the U.S.

Any move to undermine the JCPOA would result in the loss of credibility of other global agreements, Shamkhani also made the remarks in a meeting with Le Drian.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday voiced his support for the 2015 nuclear deal which limited Iran's nuclear activities in returns for the lift of western sanctions against Tehran.
