'Just 48 HOURS' Iran's grave threat over nuclear deal

French Foreign Minister Arrives in Tehran Amid Row Over Ballistic Missile Program

"We have already adopted appropriate measures in banking relations and the French companies' investment in Iran has grown enormously following the nuclear deal", he said, adding that export guarantees and lines of credit are among the main signs of the investments made so far", he noted.

In Tehran, Mr Le Drian was received by Mr Hassan Rouhani, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Zarif further accused the United States of failing to fulfill its commitments under the agreement.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Monday there remained "much work to do" with Iran over its ballistic missile programme and its role in regional conflicts.

If Kamalvandi's claims are accurate, Iran's nuclear program could be up and running nearly immediately if the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) fails.

Le Drian arrived in Tehran on Monday for talks with Iranian officials on mutual ties as well as regional and worldwide issues. "If the JCPOA were to fail, it would be a great loss for nuclear verification and for multilateralism", Amano said in a speech to a quarterly meeting of the agency's Board of Governors in Vienna.

Zarif stressed that Iran can not be pushed around and warned that "any action to satisfy the party that has most violated the nuclear agreement is useless".

Washington is telling European allies it wants a follow-on agreement that "ensures strong IAEA inspections", according to a State Department cable obtained by Reuters last month.

Trump says 'I may' attend opening of U.S. embassy in Jerusalem
The Palestinians, meanwhile, said Trump's decision on Jerusalem renders the United States an unreliable actor in peace talks. The deal casts a long shadow on the visit of Netanyahu in Washington, where he is due to meet later Monday with U.S.

That continued with Iran's armed forces spokesman Gen. Masoud Jazayeri, who this weekend said Tehran only would give up its missiles when the West abandons nuclear weapons.

Le Drian also met Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. "Do we tell France how it should defend itself?" he told the semi-official ISNA news agency.

Le Drian also pressed Iran on the activities of its ally, the Syrian government, amid the ongoing bombardment of civilians in the rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta near Damascus.

On February 13, French President Emmanuel Macron said Iran's ballistic missile program must be placed under global surveillance.

For his part, Rouhani said countries exporting weapons to Saudi Arabia - France being one of the biggest suppliers - must answer for war crimes being committed by that country in Yemen.

Britain, France and Germany are reportedly working with United States officials to draw up a strategy to "improve" the Iran nuclear deal in return for Trump keeping the pact alive.

During his stay, Le Drian is also expected to discuss bilateral ties.

The visit was originally scheduled for January but postponed due to a week of violent protests in Iran.
