  • Tehran says will retaliate against Washington sanctions on chief judge

The semi-official ISNA news agency said the restrictions on Telegram had been "entirely lifted under orders of (President Hassan Rouhani)". The French presidency added that Macron and Netanyahu "also referred to the subject of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process in the continuity of their exchanges of December 10".

The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday criticised the fresh sanctions imposed by the USA by calling them illegal and hostile and warned that they would receive a serious reaction by the Islamic republic.

After Trump extended the waiver on January 12, senior officials in the administration vowed it would be the "last time" the president waives the sanctions unless the United States and its European allies can find a way to remove in the next four months loopholes in the nuclear deal that Iran has continuously exploited. "And the reality is that Iran is fulfilling all its obligations" under the nuclear deal, he said.

Mr Lavrov, who is Russia's top diplomat, stressed that Russian Federation will work to preserve the existing Iran nuclear deal, and warned that any threat to it also represented a threat to any diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea.

Whether or not he made a decision to listen to European Union or not he decided last Friday to continue to respect the deal that he has described as one of the worst deals and to continue to suspend the sanctions.

A series of demonstrations over the economy, which also turned against Iran's Islamic establishment, broke out in almost 80 cities nationwide the first week of the year, spreading very quickly, with several turning violent. In effect, he is asking them to act as mediators to accomplish changes that Iran is refusing to make. I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression, and supporting the Iranian people.

In the meantime, Washington imposed other sanctions against 14 Iranian individuals and entities, including judiciary head Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani.

Trump said he would work with European allies to remove so-called sunset clauses that allow Iran to gradually resume advanced nuclear activities in the next decade.

Moving forward, the President outlined two paths forward on Iran: either fix the flaws set out above or withdraw from the deal.

In October, Trump said he would not certify Iran's compliance with the nuclear agreement that was negotiated under the previous administration.
