Trump also said at the time that he would be open to meeting with his Iranian counterpart, President Hassan Rouhani, under the right circumstances.

Rouhani reportedly said there is no prospect of talks with Europe on reaching an agreement in a few days, and that Iran's government will announce further measures.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves le Drian said talks on the credit arrangement, which would be guaranteed by Iranian oil revenues, were continuing, but USA approval would be crucial.

It breached the 300kg (660lb) limit on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium and exceeded the 3.67% cap on the purity of its uranium stocks.

"Despite settling main part of differences with the Europeans, we have not reached a final agreement yet".

President Trump said the sanctions against Iran have been working, hurting the theocratic nation's economy.

"Every time we wanted to do something, these three groups, which have unfortunately taken over the White House, would not allow it", Rouhani said, noting that the reason the United States pulled out of the JCPOA was because of the influence of these three groups over the White House.

Discussions of a deal are underway in Paris between a senior Iranian delegation who arrived in the French capital yesterday and representatives of President, Emmanuel Macron. Rouhani has warned that unless "significant steps" are taken to save the deal enrichment of uranium would reach another phase.

"Sure, anything is possible", Trump told reporters.

But Rouhani has already ruled out a summit without sanctions relief, and on Wednesday the Trump administration issued its third set of sanctions on Iran in less than a week.

"We've said it before time and again, and we say it again: We have no intention to hold bilateral talks with the United States".

A new iPhone SE is rumored for a 2020 arrival
Apple has seen a decline in iPhone sales recently following the launch of its flagship devices like the iPhone Xr. The company also ramped up its trade-in value, and typically discounts older phones after introducing new ones.

The network sold more than $500 million worth of oil this spring, mostly to Syria, benefitting both President Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah, the Treasury Department said.

French officials said the USA has a pivotal role in the European bid to get Iran to comply, notably that Washington issue waivers for specific oil deals, according to French officials.

Government spokesman Ali Rabie said Iran would stick to its nuclear commitments "if France can get the approval of the U.S. and announces it".

France has proposed offering Iran about $15 billion in credit lines until year-end if Tehran comes fully back into compliance with its 2015 nuclear deal, a move that hinges on Washington not blocking it.

The US is now trying to block such shipments with unilateral sanctions.

Hook stopped short of criticizing the credit line itself, saying there was no "concrete" proposal.

The new scaling down of the commitments to the agreement, officially known as the JCPOA, is the third one Iran has made this year.

Iran has repeatedly stated that its nuclear programme is exclusively for peaceful purposes.

Iranian officials are reporting little progress with negotiators representing the European sides to the nuclear deal, as the September 6 deadline set by Tehran looms large. "So, Iran will take the third step of reducing its nuclear commitments and the details of the step will be announced today or tomorrow", Rouhani said during a cabinet meeting.

But some members of the crew of this Swedish-owned tanker have been released, Stockholm said late Wednesday.
