Iran: US withdrawal included in planning budget bill

IRNA – Iranian government spokesman said on Wednesday that the government has considered the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal in planning the budget bill.

‘We have planned the budget for various conditions and will not have problem in new condition,’ Government Spokesman and Head of the Plan and Budget Organization Mohammad-Baqer Nobakht told reporters.

He noted that the budget bill was planned according to the US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran.

This is while most world powers, including Russia, China, and European Union, have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of world peace and security.
