Bolton, however, did not rule out sanctions for European companies doing business with Iran. "It has crucial significance not only for ensuring regional security, but also for stability in the world, and it's extraordinarily important in the regime of nuclear non-proliferation".

"Why would any business, why would the shareholders of any business, want to do business with the world's central banker of global terrorism?"

While he has committed to remaining in the nuclear agreement, French President Emmanuel Macron floated the idea of a supplemental deal on Iran during a visit to Washington last month. Bolton said on ABC's "This Week".

An update of the 1996 European Union legislation against U.S. sanctions, called a blocking statute, was being considered, he said, adding that French and German companies in particular were above all asking for visibility on the subject. The bulk of the exports - €70 million - comprised office machines and data-processing equipment, but there were also significant exports of medical and pharmaceutical equipment, and dairy produce. Prime Minister Theresa May added the U.K.'s voice to the push in a call with Rouhani on Sunday.

France as a "matter of principle" can't accept that "the USA act like the world's economic policeman", Finance Minister Minister Bruno Le Maire told reporters on Friday.

"There is very strong US pressure on this, which requires a firm European response, that's what the president will say", he added.

"I've written and said a lot of things over the years when I was a complete free agent", Bolton told CNN.

If "everybody simply does what they want, then that's bad news for the world", she said.
