Iran says ready to respond US nuclear deal violations

 IRNA – Should Washington withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Headquarters to Monitor the Implementation of the agreement would be the one to decide about the issue, senior diplomat said here on Monday.

‘Iran will never be the initiator of violating the nuclear deal, [known also as theJoint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)],’ spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Bahram Qasemi said in Tehran at his weekly press briefing.

Iran will duly react to violation of the JCPOA by any countries involved in the deal, stressed Qasemi adding ‘Iran will not tolerate violation of the deal by other parties.’

The US President Donald Trump, describing the landmark international deal between Tehran and the major world powers as ‘disastrous’, has threatened to kill the deal.
