"All the commitments made today, should be implemented before the August deadline ... it is up to the leadership in Tehran to decide whether Iran should remain in the deal ... the proposal was not precise and a complete one", Mohammed Javad Zarif told reporters.

The European Union has scrambled to find ways to counter the sanctions and ensure that Iran continues to enjoy the benefits of global sanctions relief under the deal, which was granted in 2016 in exchange for curbs on Iran's nuclear activities.

"What is important is that we know and we are certain that we want to stay in the deal and we believe that dialogue should continue in peace", she was quoted as saying.

The Iranian president expressed hope that this issue will be raised at the meeting of foreign ministers from JCPOA signatory states with Iranian representatives, due on July 6 in Vienna.

VIENNA - Talks to save the 2015 nuclear deal on Friday are unlikely to satisfy Iran, European powers said, and Tehran warned that it could leave the accord if it was not fully compensated for the re-imposition of United States sanctions.

Since Trump's shock move in May, which dismayed all other signatories, Washington has warned other countries to end trade and investment in Iran and stop buying its oil from early November or face punitive measures.

Speaking on French radio ahead of arriving in the Austrian capital, France's foreign minister said world powers would struggle to put together an economic package immediately. "For the start August, it seems a bit short, but we are trying to do it by November", he said. "It's also not just about what the Europeans can do, but also how the Chinese, Russians, Indians, others can contribute", said a senior European diplomat.

On arrival in Vienna, Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Mass said he didn't expect a collapse of talks, but suggested more negotiations would be needed in the future.

Iran has threatened in recent days to close the strait, a vital route for world oil supplies, if Washington tries to cut Tehran's exports.

Iran is continuing to export oil despite USA attempts to prevent them from doing so, and there is no reason to think they're suddenly going to commit a series of acts of war in the Strait of Hormuz just to give the USA a pretext to attack them.

"It is easier said than done", he said, adding that the Europeans alone "undoubtedly" do not have enough enough political means to protect the Iran deal from United States pressure.

The bellicose interpretation was virtually universal among U.S. officials and media outlets, and echoed on Thursday when the Iranian Revolutionary Guards praised Rouhani's statement, and said shipping of oil through the Strait was for "all or none".

Now, the threat of USA sanctions has increasingly darkened the outlook for Iran's economy, helping to stoke a plunge in the Iranian rial this year that has driven up prices and provoked street protests and strikes.
