President Hassan Rouhani has denounced the US House of Representatives’ approval of a draft law on fresh sanctions against Iran, saying the Islamic Republic would “definitely” give a proportionate response to the hostile move
Iran’s top nuclear negotiator has slammed the ‘hostile’ move by the US House of Representatives to impose new sanctions against the Islamic Republic, saying the decision would kill the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.
Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has referred to the US criticism of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s handling of Iran’s nuclear activities, saying Tehran is prepared to restrict the IAEA’s inspection if the US thinks it is not ‘good enough’.
Spokesman for the Iranian Administration Mohammad Baqer Nobakht described recent US sanctions against the Islamic Republic as a violation of the 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the JCPOA, pledging that Tehran will take “a decisive action” on the issue.
An Iranian lawmaker says given the US indecent stances towards the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, the Islamic Republic of Iran and the EU should prepare themselves for proceeding with the JCPOA without Washington.
A former Iranian foreign minister and a top international advisor to Iran’s Leader says the Islamic Republic will withdraw from the nuclear deal only if the US pulls out of it first.
A senior Iranian cleric has hailed the recent remarks by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif about Tehran’s preparedness to withdraw from the JCPOA, and called on Rouhani’s government to immediately pull out of the ‘harmful’ nuclear deal.
A regular meeting of the Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was held in the Austrian capital of Vienna, with representatives of the Islamic Republic of Iran as well as the P5+1 in attendance.
Iran says it could resort to its own options if the mechanisms featured in its 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers, including the US, fail to force other parties to live up to their end of the bargain.
Yukiya Amano, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has praised Iran for cooperating with the IAEA and living up to its commitments under the nuclear deal it signed with world powers.
