Iran Blasts US Efforts to Turn Europe against Nuclear Deal

US Vice President Mike Pence gives a speech during the conference on peace and security

Delegates were set to discuss trans-Atlantic relations, tensions between Russian Federation and the West and conflict in the Middle East.

He says "Chinese law does not require companies to install back doors or collect intelligence" and said Huawei "as a company is cooperating very closely with the European countries".

Zarif denied the comparison of Iran's regime to the Nazis, telling Germany's Der Spiegel Online,"Iran has always supported the Jews".

He pointed to U.S.

However, according to diplomats and analysts, during the Munich security conference, "the rift between Europe and the Trump administration became open, angry and concrete". "So we are opposed to the multilateralization of (the) INF".

"Israeli behaviour is putting global law on the shelf, USA behaviour is putting worldwide law on the shelf", he said.

He added: "We must protect our critical telecom infrastructure and America is calling on all our security partners to be vigilant". Pence's speech focused largely on the idea of "America first, not America alone".

Zarif said the US had an "unhealthy" and "pathological obsession" with Iran and accused Pence of trying to bully his allies.

Germany and the EU on Friday rejected an appeal by US Vice President Mike Pence for Europeans to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal and isolate Tehran.

The United States withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in May a year ago and reimposed sanctions against Tehran. "Europe needs to be willing to get wet if it wants to swim against the unsafe tide of USA unilateralism", Zarif was quoted by Anadolu News Agency as saying.

U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement a year ago, leaving the others involved - Germany, Britain, France, China, Russia and the European Union - scrambling to try and keep it alive.

Anthony Weiner released from prison to federal re-entry program
He was sentenced in November 2017 to 21 months in prison over the sexting scandal but was released early due to good behavior. Weiner was also sentenced to serve three years probation upon his release, and was required to register as a sex offender.

During a speech at the Munich Security Conference over the weekend, German Chancellor Angela Merkel went after the Trump administration for wanting to label BMWs as national security threats in order to impose tariffs.

Merkel said a looming new shot expected in a trade war - Washington readying to declare European vehicle imports a "national security threat" - was "frightening", speaking at the Munich Security Conference.

In her speech, Merkel also questioned whether it was a good idea for the United States to withdraw troops quickly from Syria.

"If that is viewed as a security threat to the United States, then we are shocked", she said, drawing applause from the audience.

On Nord Stream 2, Merkel said that Europe was already buying Russian gas through other pipelines and declared that "a Russian gas molecule is a Russian gas molecule, no matter whether it comes via Ukraine or through the Baltic Sea". 'We're proud of our heritage'.

"These cars are built in the US - BMW has its largest factory in SC", she said.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is reportedly mulling a run at the White House, described the United States as an "embarrassment" while speaking in Germany on Saturday.

Zarif termed INSTEX as inadequate and urged France, Britain, and Germany to do more to show their commitment to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

Last week, Pence accused Britain, Germany and France of undermining USA sanctions on Iran, and on Saturday he repeated his demand for European powers to withdraw from the arms control deal.

"They call this scheme a Special Purpose Vehicle, we call it an effort to break American sanctions against Iran's murderous revolutionary regime", Pence told delegates Saturday.

"All I can say is it would be good if we could resume proper talks with one another", she said.
