European allies fear U.S. seeks Iran regime change as it restores sanctions

European allies fear U.S. seeks Iran regime change as it restores sanctions”

"The Iranian people are not happy, not with the Americans but with their own leadership", he said.

"There have been advances made in the past two weeks, and I believe there are signs that (Iran's) Interests Section office would open and become active". This is why the European Union's updated Blocking Statute enters into force on 7 August to protect EU companies doing legitimate business with Iran from the impact of USA extra-territorial sanctions.

The JCPOA is working and delivering on its goal, namely to ensure that the Iranian programme remains exclusively peaceful, as confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 11 consecutive reports.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo vowed Sunday that the United States would "enforce the sanctions" it is reimposing after President Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 nuclear pact.

The White House is on the verge of reinstating sanctions against the Islamic Republic that were lifted following the historic nuclear deal sealed between Tehran and world powers in 2015.

Calling the Iranian government a bunch of "bad actors", Pompeo held out slim hope for its behavior to moderate and to negotiate over US concerns such as its ballistic missile testing and its support for militants in the region.

There have been ongoing rumours that Trump and Rouhani could meet in NY later this month, where they are both attending the UN General Assembly - though Rouhani reportedly rejected USA overtures for a meeting at last year's event.

A deepening of Iran's economic crisis could also lead to an influx of refugees and migrants into Europe like that seen on the heels of the Syrian conflict.

Rouhani sacked CBI Governor Valiollah Seif last week and replaced him with Abdolnasser Hemati, the former head of Central Insurance of Iran, who plans to unveil a new foreign exchange policy on Monday - a day after the government approved it.

"Based on existing agreements, five new ATR aircraft will land at Mehrabad Airport at 9am (04:30 GMT) tomorrow [Sunday]", the national carrier said on its Telegram channel.

"It's an important part of our efforts to push back against Iranian malign activity", he said.

The twin-prop planes are jointly manufactured by France's Airbus and Italy's Leonardo, but because just over 10 percent of their parts are made in the United States, they are subject to the renewed sanctions.

"This is just about Iranians' dissatisfaction with their own government", he said.

She said the collapse in the value of the rial was not driven by purely economic factors but instead by people rushing to buy gold or hard currency as a safe haven for their savings because they do not trust the government to improve the situation. The first round of financial sanctions should return Monday.
