While ratcheting up pressure on Tehran, the sanctions are worsening rifts between the United States and European allies, and other world powers, which say they remain committed to the nuclear deal, and will not comply with the US sanctions.

The sanctions are meant to hinder Tehran's acquisition of US currency; its precious metals trade; bank transactions denominated in the Iranian rial; activities related to Iran's sovereign debt; and the country's automotive sector. He used the government's Brexit rhetoric to support his case, saying that "global Britain" should use its "considerable diplomatic power and influence" to force a change of approach.

On Tuesday, August 7, a US-imposed blanket of economic sanctions hit the Iranian regime.

But last week members of the European Union reiterated their desire to remain in the deal and even moved to protect other countries that continue doing business with Iran despite U.S. sanctions that threatens to punish them.

The sanctions also concern Tehran's automobile and aviation sector, with tougher sanctions-especially an embargo on Iran's oil and banking sectors-to follow by November 4 should the Islamic Republic fail to accommodate President Trump's terms on "WORLD PEACE".

The decision came after U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. It is time to move on from the flawed 2015 deal.

Asked about Johnson's article, the British foreign office pointed to comments from Middle East minister Alistair Burt, who last week ruled out Britain going along with the United States.

"When we were inking the nuclear deal, we stopped production of 20% fuel and deposited the excessive fuel in Russian Federation in almost 10 batches".

He added, "America is turning up the pressure and we want the United Kingdom by our side".

Under the JCPOA, Iran agreed to limit parts of its peaceful nuclear program in exchange for the removal of all nuclear-related sanctions.

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

May's position is likely to become even more awkward in the coming days as she's forced to choose between European leaders, whose support she needs for a favorable Brexit deal or a US leader determined to secure EU compliance with reimposed sanctions on Iran, fear British officials.
