Iran will retaliate if P5+1 reneges on JCPOA promises
The speaker of Iran’s parliament (Majlis) says Tehran will “retaliate” in case the world powers break their commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) over the Iranian nuclear program.
In a Thursday interview with the US National Public Radio (NPR), Ali Larijani added that he believes those “who want to wreck” the JCOPA “are going to find new ways to perforate” the agreement.
He stated that Washington had tried to put pressure on Tehran during nuclear negotiations, but finally had come to acknowledge Iran’s legitimate nuclear rights following the Islamic Republic’s unwavering resistance.
He also described as “acceptable” the conclusion of Iran’s nuclear talks, however, adding that it is far from being perfect.
“My overall view is that it’s an acceptable deal. I believe we can use this deal as a step we can take to move forward. And at the same time it’s not flawless,” he added during the interview, which will be aired on September 8.
According to Iran’s senior lawmaker, improving the economic status will top Tehran’s agenda after the implementation of the JCPOA and removal of anti-Iran sanctions.
