The U.S. has "crossed a red line" by imposing sanctions on Judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani, the Foreign Ministry says.
While other JCPOA signatories havecalled on the United States to comply with the agreement's provisions, saying that the deal had yielded results and was non-negotiable, Trump signaled a possible withdrawal from the deal if the agreement was not improved. On Friday, President Trump was seen to avoid upending the Iranian nuclear deal that he has repeatedly blamed and criticized the Obama administration for negotiating it.
"I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression, and supporting the Iranian people", Trump said in the statement.
It said the sanctions are against global law and go against USA commitments, saying they would bring a "strong reaction" from Iran.

It has also been revealed that the insect order, which is believed to have been co-evolved with flowers, is actually much older. The emergence of flowers puzzled Darwin, but most scientists assumed flowers predated the earliest pollinators.
On Thursday, European foreign ministers met in Brussels with Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, seemingly to press Tehran about its destabilising activities in the Middle East.
Fourth, the legislation must explicitly state in United States law-for the first time-that long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs are inseparable, and that Iran's development and testing of missiles should be subject to severe sanctions.
Iran has said its nuclear program is strictly for peaceful uses. We have sanctioned almost 100 individuals and entities involved with the Iranian regime s ballistic missile program and its other illicit activities, he said.
The president charged that Iran has gotten "far too much in exchange for far too little", and threatened not to renew the waivers when the next approval period comes.
The U.S. Congress requires the president to decide periodically whether to certify Iran's compliance with the deal and issue a waiver to allow U.S sanctions to remain suspended.

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust. He was also said to have added the suggestion that the United States should admit people from Norway instead.
This approach is unlikely to work, given that it places the onus upon allies - who publicly don't want to alter or jeopardize the deal - to tighten it up in ways Iran will find unacceptable, Paton Walsh said.
Iran has said it's not interested in any renegotiation and would nearly certainly view a side agreement between the US and Europe as a violation of the deal. My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon-not just for ten years, but forever.
Though AIPAC staunchly opposed the deal during the negotiations, it has not publicly addressed Trump's threat to pull out of the accord. Iran must allow "immediate inspections at all sites requested by global inspectors", he said, and "sunset" provisions imposing limits on Iran's nuclear program must not expire.
The stance of Iran and global support for the agreement has blocked attempts by Trump and Israel to terminate this deal or make changes to it, said the statement.
Trump alleged that Iranian regime is the world s leading state sponsor of terror and enables Hezbollah, Hamas, and many other terrorists to sow chaos and kill innocent people.

"This could be one of Washington's big foreign policy mistakes, a big miscalculation", said Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, adding that Russian Federation would work hard to keep the agreement alive.
