Iran’s supreme leader threatens to resume nuclear programme if Europe doesn’t guarantee lost oil revenues

Iran’s supreme leader has threatened to pull his country out of the nuclear deal and resume enriching uranium if European countries do not promise to buy Iranian oil and to oppose all new US sanctions against Tehran.

Three days after US secretary of state Mike Pompeo delivered America’s extensive list of demands of Iran for a new nuclear agreement, Ayatollah Khamenei laid out his own demands of European countries for Iran to stay in the 2015 deal.

“If the Europeans hesitate in responding to our demands, Iran is entitled to resuming its nuclear activities,” he said in a statement.
