France's foreign minister on Thursday condemned the United States for re-imposing sanctions against foreign companies trading with Iran, labelling the move "unacceptable" in comments that expose the deepening rift between Washington and its European allies on the issue.

President Trump announced Tuesday that the United States will withdraw from the Obama era agreement, calling the deal "defective at its core" and that "the Iranian regime has funded its long reign of chaos and terror by plundering the wealth of its own people".

Moscow will seek to make sure that USA sanctions on Iran neither destroy the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), nor affect Tehran's partners, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said following talks with his German counterpart Heiko Maas.

He said that the Europeans have not still shown a resolute response to U.S. pressures, adding that USA withdrawal has created a valuable opportunity for the world to try to create a new political order, and independent countries can express themselves.

Lavrov noted that Iran, and Israel assured Russian Federation that no such intentions, but incidents do happen, and particularly worrisome that these incidents occur in situations where all emphasize respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria.
