Pointing also to the USA withdrawal from the Paris accord on climate change, Merkel added: "If we always say that, if we don't like things and we can't achieve a new worldwide order, everyone will do what they feel like, that's bad news for the world".

President Donald Trump delivered on his election promise of making America pull out of the Iran nuclear deal which was signed in 2015.

"Germany, France and Britain, the "EU3", say themselves that Iran poses a threat". It also reiterated that the foreign minister is seeking "required guarantees" from the five other parties to the agreement as well as Iran's other economic parties.

"The prime minister raised the potential impact of USA sanctions on those firms which are now conducting business in Iran", her spokeswoman said.

President Trump's decision to pull out of the nuclear deal and Iran's missile exchanges with Israel are just ramping up the pressure in a country that's already dangerously close to boiling point.

All the deals are dependent on US licenses because of the heavy use of American parts in the planes.

He said: "I think, just speaking for the United States, the President has made a decision to leave the deal".

In her latest comments on Iran and sanctions, Chancellor Merkel said: "It is in our interest to have a strong transatlantic relationship".

"Iran was likely to respond with tougher, more defiant policies to President Donald Trump's announcement on Tuesday that he was pulling the United States out of the JCPOA", Schirach said.

With regard to oil prices and fundamentals, most analysts agree that the gravity of the effect USA sanctions against Iran will have is questionable.

"Britain has no intention of walking away".

On Thursday France's top diplomat Jean-Yves Le Drian slammed those conditions, saying Washington needed to negotiate with its European allies on any sanctions that might affect their companies.

France's finance minister says European countries should push back harder against the Trump administration over the Iran nuclear deal and not act as "vassals" to the U.S.

European governments tried for months to persuade Trump to stick with the deal but failed, and now fear it will raise the risk of conflict in the region.
