State news agency IRNA confirmed Zarif departed in the early hours of Sunday morning. Zarif will visit China on Saturday, before traveling to Moscow on Monday.

Shortly after US President Donald Trump announced his country's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday, Iranian President Rouhani declared that "from now on, the Iran nuclear deal will be a deal between Iran and five countries". Iran will assume the Europeans have too much money at stake to stop doing business with their belligerent terror state, regardless of Tehran's intransigence.

Beijing has expressed regret over Trump's decision to withdraw from the nuclear and says it remains committed to the pact.

A senior Iranian government official told NHK on Friday that the foreign ministers of Iran, France, Britain, and Germany will hold talks in Brussels next Tuesday.

In his statement, Zarif accused Trump of "ignorance and folly" and said American foreign policy had "dragged the Middle East into chaos".

Before leaving, Zarif published a government statement on his Twitter page, slamming Trump's "extremist administration" for abandoning "an accord recognised as a victory of diplomacy by the worldwide community". "The answer is no", Le Maire told reporters in Paris, adding that France won't accept the "vassalization of Europe" by US officials bent on reimposing sanctions on Iran.

Iran appeared determined not to be drawn into a wider regional conflict with Israel during the sensitive negotiations. The UK also called for restraint but blamed Iran for provoking Israel. "This goes for all levels, not just for the White House".

Iran denies that version of events, saying the Israeli strikes were launched on "invented pretexts".

Russia, China and Turkey see USA withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal an opportunity, while the Europeans are scrambling to protect their businesses from new American sanctions.
