John Bolton vows to 'squeeze' Iran after UAE visit

John Bolton vows to 'squeeze' Iran after UAE visit

The issue has grown more complicated since the US withdrew unilaterally in May from the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and then re-imposed sanctions. Iran's uranium stockpiles remain well below their caps established by the deal.

Critics of the JCPOA say the evidence Israel uncovered deserved more scrutiny than worldwide media and the IAEA gave it. Under the terms of that section of the deal, Iran agreed to refrain from all activities relating to nuclear weapons design.

The United Nations atomic watchdog says Iran continues to keep its side of the 2015 nuclear agreement, even as new US sanctions raise concerns about whether the deal can survive.

Even before the sanctions went into effect this month, the Trump administration's announcement in May that it will pull out of the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers triggered a collapse in the value of Iran's rial currency, which has hit 149,000 to the U.S. dollar on the black market, down from around 43,000 at the start of 2018.

US National Security Advisor John Bolton vowed Tuesday to "squeeze" Iran "until the pips squeak", a week after a tough new round of sanctions came into force.

The other members of the deal have stayed on in an attempt to try and make the pact work.

"The current situation may pose problems for global security - not only for Iran but also for the EU", Larijani said.

"This is the reason that the Islamic Republic of Iran has fought against Daesh as the most important factor behind regional instability", he pointed out.

The latest tranche of measures have been touted as the toughest yet, and aim to significantly reduce Iran's vital oil exports and cut off its banks from worldwide finance.

Haspels added that the Netherlands firmly follows up on the implementation of a mechanism for banking exchanges.

In an interview with Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, a London-based pan-Arab media outlet, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif claimed that Tehran was aware of Saudi Arabia's alleged plans to have senior Iranian officials killed.

During the meeting, Zarif and Haspels discussed the latest developments in mutual relations, particularly the expansion of economic cooperation, and regional issues, including the Syrian and Yemeni crises, as well as the JCPOA.
