Iran's supreme leader chastised President Donald Trump on Wednesday over his decision to pull America out of the 2015 nuclear deal, while lawmakers lit a paper USA flag on fire inside parliament, shouting, "Death to America!"
Washington has been a major financial contributor to the IAEA's efforts to make sure that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons, under the 2015 agreement that US President Donald Trump abandoned on Tuesday.
French President Emmanuel Macron, who personally lobbied Trump to remain in the deal, said: "France, Germany, and the United Kingdom regret the U.S. decision to leave the JCPOA". Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the United States will be the loser from President Trump's decision.
The 2015 deal had placed unprecedented restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.
Iran's "supreme leader", Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, cast fresh doubts on the survival of the 2015 nuclear deal on Wednesday when he admitted frankly that the Tehran regime views France, Germany and the UK with the same suspicion as it does the United States.
However Hassan Rouhani, Iran's president, has warned that the country will begin enriching uranium again if the financial benefits of the deal for Iran can not be retained.

Six countries, including the U.S. negotiated the deal: the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council -the U.S., Britain, France, China and Russian Federation - as well as Germany.
In announcing the U.S. pullout Tuesday, Trump dismissed the accord as an "embarrassment" that was "defective at its core" and called for a "new and lasting deal".
"It seems that Mr. Trump does not have the mental capacity to deal with issues and the language of force is more effective for this person so that he could face the consequences of his arrogant personality", Larijani stated. They knew Trump had not secured a better deal - because they knew the enormous amount of painstaking work that went into securing the original one.

Trump's decision and his threats to Iran raise questions about what legal grounds the USA can use to enforce Iranian compliance now that it has walked away from the global pact, and whether the President is gunning for a confrontation.
"I think it sends a very important message to North Korea that we're not in these negotiations with them just to get a deal", he said. "[Syrian strongman Bashir] Assad is still in power today, still murdering his own people and still creating refugee flows that we've not seen before based on the support out of Iran", Mattis said. "We accepted the JCPOA, but enmities with the Islamic Republic did not end", he said.
