Israeli PM failed to convince Merkel on Iran

While Iran was largely responsible for dragging Russian Federation into the seven-year-long civil war to fight on behalf of the Syrian government, Russian Federation has maintained a positive relationship with Israel, which has carried out attacks against Iranians and the Syrian government while also supporting Syrian opposition forces.

European signatories are scrambling to save the accord, which they see as crucial to forestalling an Iranian nuclear weapon, by seeking to ring-fence trade with Iran against new USA financial sanctions to dissuade Tehran from quitting the deal.

A handout picture provided by the office of Iran's Supreme Leader on April 30, 2018, shows Ayatollah Ali Khamenei waving to the crowd as he delivers a speech during Labour Day.

"I am telling the Europeans, 'limiting our missile work is a dream that will never come true".

Tensions between Washington and Tehran were reignited after Trump pulled the U.S. out of the controversial Iran nuke deal, which he claimed would not stop the country from developing deadly warheads.

At a news conference later, Yukiya Amano said his statement was "not an expression of concerns or complaints, but rather an encouragement to Iran".

One of the documents seen by The Times handed over to London is a memorandum that formally hands responsibility for the production of weapons-grade enriched uranium to the Iranian defense ministry.

Sa'ad Zaeri, a conservative analyst, wrote that Russia's strategy for Lebanon, Syria and Palestine is for there to be no conflict, and that Russia's recommendation to both Iran and the Israelis is for both of them to avoid conflict.

Issacharoff said that despite "differences of opinion" on how to achieve the aim of hemming in Iran on nuclear matters, "we share the same goal". This is, of course, due to the fact that Iran and Russia's interests in Syria are not completely aligned, noticed mostly by reports that have been denied to varying degrees that Russian Federation and Israel have sought a deal regarding the withdrawal of Iranian forces from southern Syria.

He said US "illegal withdrawal" from the deal and its "bullying methods to bring other governments in line" with that decision have discredited the rule of law in global arena.

Iran wants to "basically conduct a religious campaign in largely Sunni Syria but try to convert Sunnis", he said at a joint press conference with Merkel.

The EU has been trying to save the nuclear deal, after the U.S. withdrawal startled the bloc. "We will continue to back oppressed nations and resistance forces in the region", Khamenei said in a speech, broadcast live on television.

"We know that for a fact", Netanyahu said mentioning comments made by Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei today calling the Jewish state a "cancerous tumor" that must be "removed and eradicated".

'Young Arabs, you should take action and the initiative to control your own future. Some regional countries act like their own peoples' enemies...
