This week, the Trump administration announced that it would reimpose sanctions on Iran that were lifted as part of its nuclear agreement with the country.

Ravanchi told ISNA: "I do not see any reason for talks between Rouhani and Trump".

Iran has said it will restart aspects of the uranium enrichment program if the nuclear deal unravels.

On Tuesday, August 7, a US-imposed blanket of economic sanctions hit the Iranian regime. "But we have had discussions with Washington about how we can work together in other ways to curb activity by Iran in the Middle East which concern us".

Mr Johnson even goes over the head of Whitehall and urges British businesses directly to cut ties with Iran. "We are asking global Britain to use its considerable diplomatic power and influence and join us as we lead a concerted global effort towards a genuinely comprehensive agreement", Johnson added.

"America is turning up the pressure and we want the our side", Ambassador Woody Johnson, who owns the New York Jets with his brother, wrote in an op-ed published Sunday in the Telegraph.

On Monday, Trump ordered all nuclear-related sanctions that were removed under the deal to be reinstated immediately.

"Until then, America is turning up the pressure and we want the United Kingdom by our side", Johnson wrote in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper.

A week ago Britain signed on to a joint statement with other EU countries that pledged to press on with a strategy to lessen the impact of the US sanctions on European businesses.

On Tuesday, Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt said that the USA had "not got this right" and Britain was ready to stand up to Trump, telling the BBC: "Sometimes you need to take a stand against friends". "We don't sympathise with the sanctions, we don't think they are appropriate and we don't interact with them, but we are committed to protect our people".

"It is clear that the danger from Iran did not diminish in the wake of the deal", he said.

In a letter to the Consortium of Moroccan Banks (GPBM), Morocco's minister of foreign affairs, Nasser Bourita, instructed the kingdom's banks to "take all necessary measures" to avoid the political repercussions that may result from trading with Iran, L'Economiste reported on August 9.
