Iran Responds To Trump

Iran is fuming over the decision by the US to back down from the nuclear deal and has described the move as ‘unacceptable’.

Speaking from Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the US does not ‘respect international agreements’, while also slamming Washington’s ’empty signatures’.

He also revealed that Tehran will bypass Washington and negotiate with the other signatories of a multinational nuclear deal.

Rouhani said; “By exiting the deal, America has officially undermined its commitment to an international treaty.

“If we achieve the deal’s goals in cooperation with other members of the deal, it will remain in place.

“I have ordered the foreign ministry to negotiate with the European countries, China and Russia in coming weeks. If at the end of this short period we conclude that we can fully benefit from the JCPOA with the cooperation of all countries, the deal would remain,” he added.
