Trump intends to force Iran "to behave as a normal country" - Pompeo

Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, who heads the parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy, suggested a U.S. return to the nuclear deal would be needed before Tehran could think of negotiating.

A second round of sanctions targeting Iran's oil imports and energy and petrochemicals industries are scheduled to come into effect on 4 November.

He was responding to a July 22 warning from Rouhani that the US should not "play with the lion's tail" and warned that any conflict with Iran would be the "mother of all wars".

Referring to recent sporadic protests in Iranian cities, Pompeo said: "The Iranian people are not happy - not with the Americans but with their own leadership".

"China always holds the view that JCPOA is a multilateral deal which is verified and approved by the United Nations Security Council and accords the common interests of all parties and the global community, which must be respected and safeguarded so as to maintain the authority of the United Nations, the effectiveness of multilateral deals and the credibility of the worldwide rules", Yi reportedly said.

We will remind, on may 8, U.S. President Donald trump said that the United States withdraws from agreement on Iran's nuclear program. If they want to survive, their choice is clear - meet the "great Satan".

Iran had hoped the lifting of sanctions would allow it to replace its aging commercial airline fleet, but the US withdrawal has halted billion-dollar deals struck with Airbus and Boeing.

But many US allies believe that language is code for regime change. "They have got to behave like a normal country", he said, describing Iranian leaders as "bad actors".

Unlike North Korea, with whom the Trump administration is now eager to negotiate, Iran never produced a nuclear bomb.

As of 0401 GMT Tuesday, the Iran government can no longer buy United States banknotes and broad sanctions will be slapped on Iranian industries, including its rug exports.

The exercise could shut down of the Strait of Hormuz, a crucial Gulf passage for shipments of numerous commodities.

Hundreds rallied in cities including Tehran, Karaj, Shiraz, and Qom, according to videos posted on social media, to protest against high inflation, caused in part by a collapse in the rial currency over fears of the reimposition of crippling sanctions.

Iran has also been hit by falling salaries set against the rising cost of living, while water shortages and power outages have also hit the embattled country.

US officials last week said Iran carried out a similar exercise, though Tehran did not immediately acknowledge it.
