Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday started a tour to save the nuclear agreement by first visiting China, a party to the multilateral agreement.

Zarif will later fly to Moscow and Brussels to consult the remaining signatories to the 2015 agreement denounced by US President Donald Trump.

"We hope that with this visit to China and other countries we will be able to construct a clear future design for the comprehensive agreement", Zarif said, speaking alongside his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi.

Iran and China have agreed to cooperate to maintain the Iranian nuclear deal.

"If the remaining five countries continue to abide by the agreement, Iran will remain in the deal despite the will of America", he continued, according to Reuters.

The lender said its provision coverage ratio (PCR) improved to 62.91 per cent in FY 2017-18 up from 50.11 per cent in FY 2016-17. Its return on assets became negative at (-) 0.03 per cent at the end of March quarter as against 0.15 per cent in the year-ago.

Wang Yi underlined that China's stance towards the Iran nuclear deal is completely clear and added "it is natural for Iran to remain in the deal without the United States if its interests are guaranteed".

US President Donald's Trump's decision to abandon the nuclear deal has infuriated Washington's allies in Europe as well as China and Russian Federation.

Add that trump intends to immediately impose sanctions against any foreign companies that will do business with Iran.

The sanctions will target critical sectors of Iran's economy, including petrochemicals, energy and finance. This is while the UN's atomic watchdog, the IAEA, have in 10 periodical reports since the JCPOA's implementation in January 2016 testified to Iran's abidance by the deal.

Iran has claimed its nuclear program is for civilian purposes and denies supporting extremists in the region.

Some analysts, however, accused him of doubling down on hawkish policies towards Iran.

Following his meeting with Zarif on Sunday, China's foreign minister said Beijing will "work to maintain the [nuclear] deal", state news agency Xinhua reported. "We believe that today China is on our side", he said.

"Together, we emphasise our continuing commitment to the JCPOA".

Before leaving, Zarif published a government statement on his Twitter page, slamming Trump's "extremist administration" for abandoning "an accord recognized as a victory of diplomacy by the global community".

"Considering the fact that the European Union member states have made the most requests that after America's withdrawal it wants to stay in the JCPOA, we should see how these countries ensure that the interests of Iran will be guaranteed despite America's pullout", he stated.
