A senior Iranian lawmaker says the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is an international deal which will not undergo any changes under any condition.
Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers is an international deal and no single side is allowed to conduct a review of it without others’ consent.
He made the statements in reaction to the latest remarks of the US envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, who said Washington was conducting a comprehensive review of the JCPOA.
“The government of Trump is inexperienced and doesn’t know that the JCPOA is an international deal signed between Iran and the six world powers,” he said, according to a Farsi report by ICANA.
The Iranian lawmaker went on saying, “We will respond accordingly to any move against Iran by the US administration and the Congress.”
He said the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has already developed a plan on this issue and will offer it to the presiding board of the parliament this week.
“It goes without saying that the US can’t bully Iran,” he noted.
During the Thursday meeting of the United Nation Security Council, the US envoy slammed the UNSC for failing to take any action against Iran, which she claimed had “repeatedly and deliberately violated” sanctions imposed by the world body.
Tehran has likewise blamed US for preventing the accord’s full implementation.
