US gears up for potential cyberattacks after Iran sanctions

US gears up for potential cyberattacks after Iran sanctions”

But, despite Mr Trump's advice to stop dealing with Iran, member states of the European Union look set to defy the sanctions, putting them on a collision course with Washington once again.

"If there is the issue of negotiations, we had two years of intensive negotiations with the Americans and the JCPOA (the Iran nuclear agreement) was the result of these talks, but the Trump administration withdrew from it".

The EU has revived legislation meant to insulate European companies doing business with Iran from USA sanctions, instructing them not to comply with Washington's demands, and providing a mechanism to sue the United States in European courts.

Despite not saying which consequences the U.S. will face in his latest statement, Iran had previously warned it could block the Strait of Hormuz, widely used by the regional states to export their oil and gas, as a comeback against the sanctions.

The comments from Beijing and Berlin signaled growing anger from partners of the United States, which reimposed strict sanctions against Iran on Tuesday, over its threat to penalize businesses from third countries that continue to operate there.

On Wednesday, China's foreign ministry said it opposed the US' "unilateral sanctions" and "long-armed jurisdiction", adding its business ties with Iran were "open, transparent and lawful".

China, Iran's top oil customer, buys roughly 650,000 barrels a day of crude oil from Tehran, or 7 percent of China's total crude oil imports.

"If the Americans want to keep this simplistic and impossible idea in their minds they should also know its consequences", Zarif told the Iran newspaper.

The first round of reimposed U.S. sanctions targeting Iran's aviation and auto industries, as well as its banking system snapped back on Tuesday.

"China's lawful rights should be protected".

He has said the deal "failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb" and did not address Tehran's "malign activities, including its ballistic missile programme and its support for terrorism".

"Today, America is identified as an unreliable and untrustworthy country in the world which does not adhere to any of its obligations", Rouhani said.

The United States will not be able to prevent Iran from exporting oil, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was cited as saying by an Iranian newspaper on Wednesday.

European countries, hoping to persuade Tehran to continue to respect the deal, have promised to try to lessen the blow of sanctions and to urge their firms not to pull out.

Despite opposing claims from the U.S. and Israel, researchers from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) maintain that Iran continues to abide by its commitment in the deal.

It will be followed in November by other measures affecting the oil and gas sector as well as the Central Bank.

"It symbolizes the determination to curb Iran's regional aggression and its ongoing plans to arm itself with nuclear weapons", said Netanyahu in a video released Monday, moments after Trump signed new sanctions into law.
