In early March, Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri said that Tehran would enter into negotiations over the issue of the Iranian missile programs only after the USA and European states destroyed the nuclear weapons and long-range missiles they possess.
― Reuters picBRUSSELS, March 17 ― Britain, France and Germany have proposed fresh European Union sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missiles and its role in Syria's war, according to a confidential document, in a bid to persuade Washington to preserve the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran.
"European countries ought to keep pushing the USA to fulfill its obligations under the deal", he added, speaking before leaving Vienna for Tehran.
Tillerson disagreed. As he said in his somber March 13 goodbye speech, he believed his job as secretary of state was to serve the nation and defend the U.S. Constitution.
Ambassador Dzhagaryan also expressed satisfaction with Tehran-Moscow ties, saying relations between the two countries have developed in different areas, including the political field.
Well, if the USA withdraws from the deal then it will effectively end any trade deals between Iran and United States companies or companies that also want access to the American financial sector, be it customers or banking.
"The (deal) can perhaps delay Iran's nuclear weapons program for a few years".

BNP Paribas Open: Focused Federer into semi-finals in Indian Wells

European states are considering imposing new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile program and involvement in Syria. The US sanctions will resume unless Trump issues new "waivers" to delay them on May 12.
Trump has said that if the deal between Iran and six big powers, which curtailed Iran´s nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief, is not "improved" by then, he will withdraw.
"But at the end of the day I think this: this whole situation with North Korea and the way that it's shaping up right now is ... somewhat unorthodox, and I think you're dealing with a leader there that probably doesn't think the same way that other countries and their leadership might", he added.
Trump has repeatedly designated the JCPOA as a deal that harms United States interests and should be either cancelled or repaired. He had urged the president to stay in the agreement to keep leverage over Iran's ballistic missile testing and other actions not covered under the agreement.
The CIA director has been loyal to the president, and after Trump's surprise announcement last week that he is willing to meet with North Korea's Kim, he went on several news shows to voice his support for the decision.
U.S. officials said American positions have hardened over the past several weeks, notably on Iranian ballistic missile testing and the deal's provisions that allow Iran to gradually resume advanced atomic work.
At the time Trump issued that deadline, his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, promptly launched negotiations with the E3 in hopes of finding a way forward.
