“Thank God the US walked out of the pact. This is the nature of the global arrogance,” Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said on Wednesday.
“The Biggest benefit of the JCPOA was that it proved the US cannot be trusted,” he said, according to ISNA.
Mousavi said the Iranian nation believes in the God’s promises and the country can win the battle with the US if it stands its ground.
In a televised address on Tuesday, Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United States from Iran’s nuclear deal with the world powers and re-impose sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
“I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal,”Trump said. “This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made.”
“In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating US nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime. We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanctions.”
The European Union, France, the United Kingdom, and Germany have expressed support for the deal, and regret over the US decision.
