ST. PETERSBURG, October 15. /TASS/. US President Donald Trump’s words about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program reveal the United States’ disrespect to the United Nations, speaker of Iran’s parliament (Mejlis) Ali Larijani said on Sunday.
"The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it eight times that Iran is committed to the deal," he said at a plenary session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly.
Trump "in not merely not abiding international agreement but also is demonstrating disrespect to the United Nations," he stressed.
On Friday, US President Donald Trump announced Washington’s new strategy against Teheran. Thus, it says that the United States will seek to offset Iran’s destabilizing influence and will call on the international community to get consolidated to exert pressure on Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (Iran's most powerful security and military organization). Apart from that, the US leader refused to recertify the Iran nuclear deal and pledged Washington would seek to amend the JCPOA.
The deal on Iran’s nuclear program was reached between Iran and six international mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015. On January 16, 2016, the parties to the deal announced beginning of its implementation. Under the deal, Iran undertakes to curb its nuclear activities and place them under total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange of abandonment of the sanctions imposed previously by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States over its nuclear program.
