Countries that continue to deal with Iran could face United States sanctions: Bolton

"There is a realization among all European states what we can not keep going in the direction we are headed today whereby we submit to American decisions", said French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire.

The other signees had urged Washington to remain in the deal.

It was widely believed to have been a successful piece of worldwide diplomacy at the time, but Trump repeatedly referred to the deal as being the "worst ever" during his election rallies, pointing out that it made no mention of the Iranian ballistic program or the overall influence Iran exerted in the Middle East.

"They agreed on the need for calm on all sides and on the importance of tackling Iran's destabilizing activity in the region", the spokeswoman said.

The letters closely track sentiments Trump has expressed publicly as he seeks to ratchet up pressure on Iran while at the same time scale back USA involvement in a region that has consumed enormous resources and lives in the years since the September 11, 2001, attacks. He made a vague offer to send a team to help resolve the Qatar conflict if it would be helpful, but the Arab states have resisted the idea, saying it was for them to handle. He posted a message on Twitter jabbing the Arabs a day after Trump announced that he was pulling the USA out of the nuclear agreement with Iran.

"I have the impression that this impulse to destroy is not leading us anywhere good". Iranian military spending "increased alongside overall government spending - not in a silo on its own", the newspaper goes on to say, adding that "the nuclear accord has contributed to the overall increase in spending - including the increase in military spending - since it lifted sanctions and allowed for a rise in oil production and exports".
