Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said, however, that it could be hard to protect European firms from any fallout from the USA decision.

Iran's Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Beijing today on the first leg of a whirlwind diplomatic tour planned to rescue the nuclear deal left on the brink of collapse after the United States pulled out.

The U.S. president said that the European leaders wanted him to stay in the deal he'd said he'd exit since he was a candidate because of the financial implications of leaving it.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, speaking in Dublin, declared: "We are stakeholders" and will remain so.

Germany said it will spend the next few months trying to persuade Washington to change its mind. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas acknowledged, however, that protecting European companies from potential USA penalties could be hard.

Donald Trump's national security advisor refused on Sunday to say whether the United States would punish European companies that do not cease their business operations in Iran by the end of this year. "It depends on the conduct of other governments".

The EU insists the deal is working, pointing to repeated United Nations inspections verifying the Islamic republic's compliance with its side of the bargain, and Mogherini's spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic told AFP ahead Zarif's arrival that "we must do our utmost to preserve it".

Meanwhile, European diplomats in Tehran fumed that Trump's decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal could undermine years of patient work to restore commercial and diplomatic ties with the Islamic Republic.

However, US President Donald Trump, a long-time critic of the agreement, on Tuesday defied last-ditch efforts by European allies and announced Washington's withdrawal from the deal.

Germany's minister for economic affairs Peter Altmaier said last week that Berlin will try to "persuade the USA government to change its behaviour". Hostilities between Iran and Israel have already escalated in recent days. Macron told Trump in their telephone call on Saturday that he was anxious about stability in the Middle East, according to Macron's office.

Bolton told Fox News in January that the United States should increase economic pressure on Tehran and provide support to government opponents.

“If you look at the advances that Iran has made under cover of this agreement, it's conventional military and terrorists advances in Iraq, in Syria, in Lebanon, in Yemen since 2015, Iran was really on the march.

He emphasized on CNN that his job now was to advise Trump and that the president would make the policy decisions.

Responding to a question, Bolton said that the leadership of the previous Obama administration lied to the American people. "I think that will sink in; we'll see what happens then", Bolton said.

"Unfortunately once again we see that Washington is trying to revise key worldwide agreements as it happens to Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as it happens to Jerusalem (al-Quds) problem and a number of other agreements", the top Russian diplomat said.
