The commander of the Iranian Army also said he is glad that the controversial US president pulled the country out of the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement, as it proved Washington is a hopeless case.
“Thank God the US walked out of the pact. This is the nature of the global arrogance,” Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said on Wednesday.
Mousavi said the Iranian nation believes in the God’s promises and the country can win the battle with the US if it stands its ground.
In a televised address on Tuesday, Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United States from Iran’s nuclear deal with the world powers and re-impose sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
“I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal,”Trump said. “This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made.”
“In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating US nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime. We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanctions.”
The European Union, France, the United Kingdom, and Germany have expressed support for the deal, and regret over the US decision.
