Tehran [Iran], May 24 (ANI): Iranian Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei set 7 conditions for the European nations in case they want Tehran to keep the 2015 Iran nuclear deal intact.
This comes after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the US will "crush" Iran with military pressure and by imposing sanctions till the time it changes its behaviour in the Middle East.
Pompeo also said the US will monitor Tehran's regional activities, restrict its influence in the Middle East and ensure that it never acquires a nuclear weapon.
Amid the economic sanctions imposed by the US on Iran, he also urged the European banks to safeguard trade with Iran, as per Sputnik.
In a tweet, Khamenei accused Germany, France and the United Kingdom for staying silent when the United States violated the 2015 agreement.
"Europe must confront imposition of any sanctions on the Islamic Republic and stand firmly against US's sanctions on Iran," he tweeted.

On May 8, US President Donald Trump announced the Washington withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or the Iran nuclear deal which limited the country's uranium enrichment in exchange for sanctions relief.
The Iran nuclear deal was signed between six countries in 2015 - Iran, US, Britain, Germany, Russia, France and China for lifting economic sanctions on Tehran in exchange for limitations to the country's nuclear programme. (ANI)
