"Instead", he said, "they are blowing up an agreement that supports US interests and the aspirations of the Iranian people while planting the seeds for a disastrous war".
"The U.S. remains open to reaching a new, more comprehensive deal with Iran that forever blocks its path to a nuclear weapon, addresses the entire range of its malign actions, and is worthy of the Iranian people", Mr. Trump said in a presidential statement late on Friday night.
Pompeo, meanwhile, expressed confidence that the United States is placing maximum pressure on Iran's government largely by targeting the energy industry.
Sputnik has talked about this with Foad Izadi, professor of political communication at the University of Tehran.
Turkey imports nearly almost half of its oil from neighbouring Iran.
The sanctions penalise other countries which do business with Iran.
Europe will also seek to "maintain financial channels operational with Iran and to ensure the continuation of Iranian oil and gas exports", it said. So that creates opposition.
Turkey has been told it will temporarily be allowed to keep buying Iranian oil, its energy minister told reporters, as has Iraq, as long as it does not pay Iran in USA dollars, three Iraqi officials said.

Humanitarian supplies are officially exempted from sanctions, but in the past risk-averse foreign banks and companies have avoided all transactions with Iran for fear of being penalized, leading to severe shortages of life-saving medicines and food staples in the years preceding the 2015 agreement.
The reimposition of sanctions "is aimed at depriving the regime of the revenues it uses to spread death and destruction around the world", Pompeo said.
Former foreign secretary Shashank told Oneindia, "See!" It seems that the U.S. government hasn't learned anything in the last 60-70 years. Let me say that again: Zero.
Later, a senior State Department official told reporters that that the US was ready for talks with Iran.
But only time will tell if Iran's regional policy has changed sufficiently to satisfy Trump and achieve his goals.
