All Options on Table for Iran on Nuclear Deal: FM Spokesman

"It has been over one year that the USA president [Donald Trump] is making any efforts to ruin the JCPOA", he told the Tehran Security Conference.

"The JCPOA is an global deal".

"The most important lesson to be taught [from reaching the nuclear deal] is that we can be hopeful of solving complicated problems through diplomatic dialogues", he said.

Iran warned the world today to prepare for the possible withdrawal of the United States from the landmark nuclear deal agreed in 2015. The agreement went into effect in January 2016.

Lawmakers have initiated efforts to draft a bipartisan bill that would authorize the president not to reimpose sanctions on Iran's oil products as the nuclear deal approaches another deadline this week.

A withdrawal by the USA will lead to an "appropriate and heavy response", added foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi.

Responding to a question on Foreign Minister Zarif's visit to Germany regarding to foreign media's reports linking it to recent events in Iran, he said "what has been said in foreign media, especially those related to the Zionist regime, over Mr. Zarif's trip to Germany is definitely false aiming to deliberately fish in troubled waters; we have constructive relations with the European Union, contacting with therm on the regular basis".

Zarif denied reports that the talks would focus on the recent protests in Iran that claimed 21 lives, saying such claims were "baseless and unfounded".
