Shamkhani: Iran ready to respond to US over breach of nuclear deal

IRNA – Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said on Saturday that the nuclear deal was a clear sign of Iran’s soft power and that Iran will respond to the United States over breach of the deal, JCPOA.

Shamkhani made the remarks in a meeting with visiting Secretary-General of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) Ramadan Abdullah.

Shamkhani made clear that Washington must know that the Islamic Republic of Iran reserves the right to retaliate extension of Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) by the Congress which is the gross breach of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

He hailed the stand of Palestinian Islamic Jihad reflected in a recently issued 10-article statement by the movement, saying that any strategy except for resistance to the Israeli occupation will lead to mirage.

Shamkhani noted that the cause of Palestine and the liberation of the Holy Beit ul-Mqaddas is the first priority of the Muslim World.

The Palestinian official, for his part, hailed Iran’s support for the Palestinian resistance, saying the Islamic Republic of Iran is the only country in the world that really supports the cause of Palestine and refuses to recognize the fabricated Zionist regime.

He blamed certain Arab states for opposing the Islamic Republic of Iran for their regional goals.

He said that the Islamic Republic of Iran is vanguard of international campaign against terrorism and helps restoration of peace and stability in the region.
