He also called Israel a "malignant cancerous tumor" that should be removed.

The UN atomic watchdog is confident that it is best placed to verify any nuclear deal reached with North Korea and would be able to deploy quickly, the head of the agency said on Monday (Jun 4).

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned German Chancellor Angela Merkel Monday that Iranian meddling in the Middle East could touch off massive new refugee flows to Europe, as they clashed about the future of the nuclear deal with Tehran.

Kamalvandi said Iran is "providing infrastructure and arrangements for high-speed and capacity in production of UF4 and UF6 gases as well as rotor of centrifuges".

One of Trump's demands - which European allies back in principle - is negotiations to rein in Iran's ballistic missile programme, which was not covered by the nuclear deal.

But, Khamenei ruled this out. "Some Europeans are talking about limiting our defensive missile program".

"I am telling the Europeans, 'limiting our missile work is a dream that will never come true".

The Iran deal paved the way for the partial lifting of global sanctions against the country, in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear program for several years.

Khamenei rejected this as "economic and psychological. warfare against us, and new American sanctions are part of it".

'For Iran, the Palestinian cause is not a tactical issue, nor is it a "political" strategy.

"There should be a clear statement by the president of the United States and all of the Western coalition" if Iran returns to enriching "military-grade" uranium, the minister said.

Issacharoff said that despite "differences of opinion" on how to achieve the aim of hemming in Iran on nuclear matters, "we share the same goal".

It was the revenge of the Plastics on Monday - as Israel responded to the usual bellicose threats from the Mad Mullahs of Iran with a snarky Twitter GIF from the hit 2004 USA flick "Mean Girls".

Israel has proposed that "a military coalition" be formed against Iran in case Tehran pursues "military-grade" uranium enrichment, suggesting that the military force would comprise of the Israeli regime, the USA, the Western states and their Arab allies.

European partners, including France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, are now rapidly negotiating to rein in Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

In his speech marking the 29th anniversary of the death of Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Khamenei insisted on resisting USA pressure and again warned of a harsh response if Iran came under attack.

"We have just started to look into the information", Amano said, adding he expected it will take "a long time" to analyse.

Iran wants to "basically conduct a religious campaign in largely Sunni Syria but try to convert Sunnis", he said at a joint press conference with Merkel.
