"Iran, meanwhile, is working with partners for post-US JCPOA solutions".

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote didn't rule out that his country would come back to the negotiating table with the United States if Washington sticks to the 2015 nuclear pact.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

Since the USA president pulled Washington out of the historic nuclear deal, European countries have been scrambling to ensure that Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal.

He urged the Europeans to guarantee that Iran's oil will be completely sold after the sanctions and the banking channels to receive the money will remain in place.

Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran Abbas Arakchi is on his visit to Moscow now.

If Europe and other signatories of JCPOA want to maintain Iran's nuclear deal, they must sacrifice more in this respect.

Zarif presented a short list of the rightful demands of the Iranian people from the USA government. He also promised to re-impose economic sanctions on Iran.

Not long after Pompeo issued the U.S.' list of demands, Zariff took to Twitter to lambaste the White House's foreign policy, tweeting, "U.S. diplomacy sham is merely a regression to old habits: imprisoned by delusions & failed policies - dictated by corrupt Special Interest - it repeats the same wrong choices and will thus reap the same ill rewards". Iran, however, stressed that it will return to pre-JCPOA conditions if the nuclear deal fails.

Very much in the backdrop was the withdrawal by the United States from the so-called JCPOA nuclear deal and their subsequent re-imposition of sanctions on Iran.

Trump also said he would reinstate U.S. nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.
