Macron and Merkel meet with Trump in Washington this week.
"The United States has not only failed its side (the deal), but is demanding even more," said Zarif, who is in New York to attend a UN General Assembly.
"This is a very dangerous message that can be sent to people in Iran, but also to people around the world – that you should never reach an agreement with the United States, because at the end of the day, the working principle is the United States States "What belongs to me is what you own is negotiable," he said.

As part of the nuclear deal with Iran, Tehran agreed to curtail its nuclear program to get rid of economic sanctions, and Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, beat the pact to prevent Iran from building a nuclear weapon but Trump believes he has "catastrophic shortcomings."
Zarif said that if Washington rescinds the deal, many of Tehran's options would be complaining through a dispute settlement mechanism created by the agreement or simply abandon the deal and its nuclear activities
"We will make a decision based on our national security interests when the time comes. But whatever that decision may be, it will not be very pleasant for the United States, "he said.
When Zarif was asked if Iran could stay in business with the remaining parties, he said," I'll stop It is very unlikely It is important for Iran to receive the benefits of the agreement and for Iran not to unilaterally implement the agreement. "
Iran has always said its nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes, Zarif said, if Tehran After resuming its nuclear activities, it was not intended to" get a bomb. "
" America should never have feared that Iran is producing a nuclear bomb, but we will vigorously drive our nuclear enrichment. If they want to fear something, it's up to them, "said Zarif.
