Lawbreaking, breach of promises habitual for US govt.: Iran
Tehran (KNA) - The Iranian administration has condemned Washington’s “illegal” withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal, saying that “law breaking” and “breach of commitments” have turned into a habit for the United States.
In an official statement issued on Thursday, Iran’s administration said US President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran deal is nothing new as other international accords, including the Paris climate deal and the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, had earlier been subjected to such American withdrawals.
Late on Tuesday, Trump angered the six other parties to the Iran nuclear deal and the entire international community by withdrawing the US from the landmark accord, which is officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The US president also threatened that the “highest level” of economic sanctions would be reinstated against Iran.
