On Monday, Iran’s foreign minister warned officials that if President Donald Trump were to pull out of the Iran nuclear agreement, they would send a “very dangerous message.”
The word of caution came from Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif during his arrival for a meeting at the United Nations General Assembly and adhered to Iran’s claims that the U.S. has failed to implement its side of the bargain when it comes to the agreement, according to Breitbart.
“Iran has several options if the United States leaves the nuclear deal,” Zarif said. “Tehran’s reaction to America’s withdrawal of the deal will be unpleasant.”
“The measure that the Islamic Republic would take and the reaction that the international community would show to the US move would be very unpleasant to the Americans,” he added.
Zarif stated that there were several actions Iran could take that would be “unpleasant” for the U.S., including using a dispute mechanism that had been set up in the Iran deal.
Other choices include Iran leaving the deal and restarting its nuclear program, as well as more “drastic measures,” though Zarif refused to detail what those might be.
Under the deal, made in January of 2016 with former President Barack Obama, Iran had agreed to place limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the U.S. removing all “nuclear-related” sanctions.
The settlement saw Iran receiving relief from sanctions from other powers such as France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China as it agreed not to develop atomic bombs. full story
