Reviewing of JCPOA by Americans nonsense: Senior MP

IRNA – Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said that Donald Trump’s administration is rookie and statements of the US officials regarding review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) are nonsense.

Talking to reporters on Friday, he added that JCPOA is an international pact and the Americans do not know that in addition to Iran, six other countries plus European Union have also signed the deal and its revision is not possible by a single country.

What is important is that the US should implement its commitments under the JCPOA and stop excessive demands and imposing new sanctions, he said.

“Parallel to each step the US government or the Congress takes back from the implementation of the deal, we as the representatives of the great nation will respond in line with defending rights of the nation,” he said.

A plan to that effect has been worked out and will be presented to Majlis presiding board on Sunday, he said, noting that Iran will never surrender to US bullying policies.
