Iran says can not 'interact' with US

Watch India's IT Capital Running Dry

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that Iran would defeat the United States if Iranian officials did their duty and that US President Donald Trump will vanish from history, like his predecessors.

On May 21, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo laid out Washington's 12 demands for a new nuclear deal with Iran.

Iran's supreme leader set out conditions for Tehran to stay in its nuclear deal with world powers, including steps by European banks to safeguard trade with Tehran after the United States withdrawal.

US sanctions lifted after the 2015 accord would be reimposed, the top USA diplomat said, and those and new measures would together constitute "unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime".

Some of the other requirements include to stop all uranium enrichment, which had been allowed within limits under the 2015 deal; and to allow nuclear inspectors "unqualified access" to nuclear sites throughout out the country.

He warned Iran would face "the strongest sanctions in history" if it did not agree to make changes.

On May 8, President Donald Trump withdrew the USA from the UN-endorsed nuclear agreement, a move which Salehi described as "unwise".

Federica Mogherini, the European Union foreign policy chief, issued a statement on Friday saying that the 28-nation bloc is united in preserving the 2015 worldwide nuclear deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA.

President Donald Trump had visited her on Monday, posting on Twitter and saying "Successful procedure, she is in good spirits". Last week, Trump gave a speech in the Rose Garden to announce a new campaign that she's calling "Be Best".

On relations with Europeans, the Leader said that Iran does not seek confrontation with Europe, but the UK, France and Germany showed that they will follow the USA in sensitive issues.

The elite Guard said in a statement: "The American leaders. have got this message that if they attack Iran, they will encounter a fate similar to that of Saddam Hussein".

Khamenei also launched a fresh broadside at Washington's rejection of the nuclear accord, saying the U.S. withdrawal showed the Islamic Republic could not deal with a country that did not abide by its commitments.

Saddam was ousted in a USA -led invasion of neighbouring Iraq in 2003, however, the US failed to rebuild the country as promised and thousands of American soldiers were killed in years of rebellion and near anarchy which also gave rise to the dreaded Islamic State.

"Europe should fully guarantee Iran's oil sales".

"Iran was committed to the deal".

Mr Pompeo has made clear he expects the backing of his allies in Europe but also called for support from "Australia, Bahrain, Egypt, India, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Korea [and] the UAE".

In 2015, Iran and six major powers (five member states of the United Nations Security Council - Russia, the United States, France, the United Kingdom, China and Germany) agreed on the final Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which particularly stipulated the removal of sanctions imposed on Tehran over its nuclear program. These US sanctions are not acceptable.
