Dismayed European allies sought to salvage the international nuclear pact with Iran Wednesday after President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the landmark accord, while Tehran poured scorn on the U.S. leader.French President Emmanuel Macron was due to speak later in the day to his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, Le Drian said.The prospects of saving the deal without Washington depends in large part on whether international companies are willing and able still to do business with Iran despite the U.S. sanctions.President Hassan Rouhani, a reformist who had hoped that the deal would boost living standards in Iran, struck a more pragmatic tone in a televised speech, saying Iran would negotiate with European Union countries, China and Russia.The U.S. Treasury says sanctions related to Iran's energy, auto and financial sectors will be reimposed in three and six months.U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said a license for Boeing Co to sell passenger jets to Iran will be revoked, scuttling a $38 billion deal. Trump said the nuclear agreement did not prevent Iran from cheating and continuing to pursue nuclear weapons.Trump said he was willing to negotiate a new deal with Iran, but Iran has already ruled that out.
