Russian Federation is "stuck" in Syria and looking for others to fund post-war reconstruction there, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said, describing this as an opportunity for Washington to press for Iranian forces to quit the country.

A second round is due to take effect on November 4, targeting oil, shipping, and the Iranian Central Bank, where Trump has vowed to bring Iran's vital oil exports to zero.

"Some Israeli officials have been floating the idea of a "grand bargain" under which the U.S. "would ease sanctions" on Russia, imposed after its annexation of Crimea, "in exchange for Russian assistance addressing United States and Israeli concerns about Iranian military entrenchment in Syria", the Los Angeles Times reported, as Netanyahu paid his most recent visit to Moscow, shortly before the Helsinki summit.

"There won't be any new sanctions if there's no further interference", he said, before specifying that "how we resolve the interference in the past remains to be seen". He did not elaborate.

European countries have sought to save the nuclear deal, saying it is working as intended by keeping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons for now. In return, Iran accepted restrictions on its nuclear activities, increasing the time it would need to produce an atomic bomb - if it chose to do so. In order to reduce tourists' concerns about U.S. sanctions, the Iranian vice president announced that foreign tourists' passports will not be stamped in Iran. Iran also has proxies in the region including Lebanon's Hezbollah.

"So they said they were not going to sign this statement". Kurdistan 24 suggested then that Trump was seeking Russia's assistance in restraining Iran in order to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria, and Bolton's comments on Thursday essentially confirmed that.

Germany called on Tuesday for Europe to set up payment systems independent of the USA if it wants to save the Iran nuclear agreement. If Iran is threatened, it could also strike Israeli cities with missiles, said the elite corps.

Khatami, the prominent Iranian cleric, also said Trump's offer of talks was unacceptable as he was demanding Tehran give up its ballistic missile program and scale back regional influence. Expanding on Trump and Putin's discussion of the issue, the two national security advisers talked about a "series of steps" to advance this objective, he says, without elaborating.

Tehran has not given an inch to Trump's pressure despite an economy beset by high unemployment and inflation and a rial currency that has lost half its value since April.

Thousands of Iranians have protested in recent weeks against sharp price rises of some food items, a lack of jobs and state corruption.

"I think we made a lot of progress, we identified certain areas where lines of communication could be restored and more work done by the affected agencies - State Dept, Defense Department, other agencies as well", Bolton said.

Some reports have speculated that the plan could be unveiled by Trump at the upcoming UN General Assembly in late September, while others have suggested that the White House could wait until after midterm elections in the USA and Israeli parliamentary elections both scheduled to be held in November.
