Iran parliament enraged at U.S. move on JCPOA

Iran vows to enrich uranium if US opts out of nuke deal

Iran vows to enrich uranium if US opts out of nuke deal

In comments before school teachers, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told Mr Trump: "You can not do a damn thing".

Khamenei - who has occupied the regime's highest office since 1989 - added that Trump's "ugly and silly behavior" was no different from that of his predecessors.

Mr Johnson also said the government would do its utmost to protect United Kingdom commercial interests in Iran from USA sanctions.

"Those ex-presidents have died and their bones are rotten, but the Islamic Republic is still there", he said.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said that the USA decision to leave the Iran nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was a "mistake".

He called on Trump to immediately send his national security team to Capitol Hill to explain how the USA will prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons on its own, and how he will impose sanctions when the other parties to the nuclear deal will not join him.

Mr Yukiya Amano, chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which polices the JCPOA, said yesterday that Iran is continuing to implement its nuclear commitments under the deal. Under the 2015 deal, Iran was allowed to resume exporting crude.

"We will respect the capacity of individual countries to make their decisions about foreign policy".




Trump said the 2015 agreement, which included Germany, France and Britain, was a "horrible one-sided deal that should never ever have been made".

Members of parliament also chanted "Death to America", and burned a United States flag and a symbolic copy of the nuclear pact, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Reuters reports. "We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction".

Hardliners also said that Iran was now free to determine its own fate.

"We have not seen any drawdown or reduction in Iran's malicious activities and malign activities across the region", the secretary said.

Lt. Col. Allen West (Ret.) on how President Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal will impact the country's nuclear capabilities and how it will affect the oil market.

The spokesperson said this was conducive to maintaining the global nuclear non-proliferation regime, promoting peace and stability in the Middle East, and demonstrating significance for solving hot issues through political means. Riyadh's statement, which came less than an hour after Mr Trump's decision, said it "supports and welcomes" the United States decision.

At a Tuesday meeting between European and Iranian officials in Brussels, Iran said it would stay in the deal if the Europeans could keep their own financial commitments and also make up for the loss Tehran would face as a result of the new USA sanctions, according to a European diplomat.

While stating that European countries seek exemptions for existing contracts from the U.S. sanctions, France's finance minister Bruno Le Maire said: "The worldwide reach of USA sanctions makes the U.S. the economic policeman of the planet, and that is not acceptable".
