Iran threatens to reduce cooperation with United Nations nuclear watchdog

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's visit to Switzerland and Austria was shaken Tuesday by allegations one of Tehran's diplomats was involved in a bomb plot against an opposition group in Paris. However, when asked whether he meant to make a threat, Rouhani declined to provide a clarification.

This comes on the heels of U.S. efforts to block and eliminate Iran's oil sales, which was met with a harsh response from Iran.

India is looking at the possibility of falling back on the rupee-rial arrangement for importing oil from Iran in the wake of USA sanctions on buying oil from the Persian Gulf nation, official sources said Wednesday.

The State Department said Monday it would examine waivers on a "case-by-case basis" as it re-imposes sanctions.

The European Union, once Iran's biggest oil importer, has vowed to keep the 2015 deal alive without the United States by trying to keep Iran's oil and investment flowing.

Donald Trump's decision to unilaterally exit the Iran nuclear deal and introduce fresh sanctions against Tehran has endangered the longevity of the historic accord. "Question is what do we see as our national interest and how we respond to [the pressure], and how do we make our case to the USA", a source said, adding that USA officials have given "informal indications" that they understood India's reasoning for progressing on its Chabahar port and railway project.

Rouhani said the new US pressure would never succeed.

It also highlighted that the oil ministry's order to refiners "to prepare for drastic reduction or zero import of Iranian oil from November" was passed a day after United States ambassador to UN Nikki Haley visited India.

If those options are exhausted, authorities must find the "least restrictive" setting for a child who arrived without parents. Trump's said the order does not alter the "zero tolerance" policy itself that the administration put in place in April.

At a meeting in Vienna at which Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was given an opportunity to try to resuscitate the 2015 nuclear deal, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz took the opportunity to chide Rouhani over the the Iranian Republic's belligerent stance on Israel.

But all the other signatories to the nuclear deal say they still support it. Tehran said its foreign minister would meet counterparts from US allies Britain, France and Germany, as well as Russian Federation and China, in Vienna on Friday to discuss ways of maintaining the nuclear deal.

"We heard very clearly what Nikki Haley said and we are in no doubt the USA will use pressure, not just on us around the world".

A number of foreign firms have already announced they would cease their Iranian activities in light of the looming imposition of sanctions.

"For now, that's the plan", an European Union source said.

Separately, Iran's interior minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli warned Tuesday that "if we close our eyes for 24 hours, 1 million refugees will go toward Europe through our Western borders" via Turkey.

The Iranian leader travelled to Europe in an effort to secure support for its global trade that would shield its economy in the aftermath of the United States decision to withdraw from the 2015 agreement.
