Europe and Iran sought a united front on Tuesday to save the nuclear deal U.S. President Donald Trump abandoned last week, with Britain warning against regime change and Tehran expressing hope it could keep the economic benefits of the accord.
Bolton struck a more hawkish tone with his comments in an interview with CNN's State of the Union than Pompeo did when he was interviewed on Fox News Sunday.
The fact is, Trump kept pushing Iran to exhibit peaceful intent, it did not and we are therefore in a situation where its continuing evil is ever more a real peril even if unseen by those who do not want to see. Instead, they were working to keep Iran in the deal at all and find ways to compensate Tehran for doing so.
However, Washington's decision to pull out of the global nuclear deal and its threat to reimpose sanctions on firms doing business in Iran has cast fresh doubt over this new trade.
Iran has been moving ahead to build nuclear weapons. "But if we want to stay in this agreement and ensure that Iran stays in this agreement and abides to the terms of the agreement, then we need to talk about this", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said.
When he quit the deal last week, US President Donald Trump gave businesses a maximum of six months to wind up operations in Iran or face swingeing penalties under American sanctions.

"But as it is now, at least for the time being, we're the country that's isolated". He said he spoke to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to request exceptions for French companies, a delay in implementing sanctions, and a so-called grandfather clause for companies that invested in Iran while the treaty was in place.
She and other European power will meet again in Vienna next week.
Those who are opposed to US imperialism and all global and regional imperialist forces, need to express their support for progressive and revolutionary forces that are speaking out within Iran's labor, feminist, student and intellectual opposition movement.
Ahead of the meeting Iran's top diplomat has spoken about the JCPOA after the U.S. withdrawal from the deal, Sputnik reported.
An OPEC source said when asked about any plans for action "I think we have 180 days before any supply impact". To the contrary, he has signaled he wants out of Syria, thereby ceding to Iran and Russian Federation a dominant position.
And leaving the assembly Mr Zarif revealed he anticipated to see outcomes from European leaders "throughout the subsequent few weeks".
Iranian hardliners - who have long opposed President Hassan Rouhani's moves to improve ties with the West - are already mobilizing against the efforts to save the nuclear deal.
