Iran President Hassan Rouhani has said in a recent statement that he would not let the US President-elect quell the Iran Nuclear deal.
Would not let Trump quell Iran Nuclear Deal – Iran President Hassan Rouhani
“(Trump) wants to do many things, but none of his actions would affect us…Do you think the United States can rip up the JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal)? Do you think we and our nation will let him do that?”
-said Hassan Rouhani
“Some man is elected in the U.S. whatever plans he has, it will be revealed later. Yes, he may desire many things. He may desire to weaken the nuclear deal. He may desire to rip up the deal. Do you suppose we will allow this?…We are committed to an acceptable implementation of the deal but in response to non-commitment, violation or hesitation in its implementation, we will act promptly”, said Rouhani in his speech at the University of Tehran.
In his campaign, Trump had called the deal as ‘catastrophic’. He had revealed that he would be renegotiating the deal. Recently, the outgoing CIA Chief John Brennan had said that “it would be disastrous” if Trump decided to relinquish the deal.
Commenting on the issue, Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the international powers involved in the agreement “have the obligation to fully implement it.”
Iran Nuclear deal was signed by the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, France, China, Germany and the European Union.
