Tehran [Iran], May 6 (ANI): Iran refuses to get bogged down by the US threat to bring amendments to the Iranian nuclear deal formally called as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
As reported by the Sputnik News Agency on Saturday, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said "(Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action- JCPOA) This is an international agreement. and we certainly have the capacity to defeat your bullying."
He, while delivering an address on the Iranian state television, said each successive government would have their own view while adding that what is the guarantee that the next government would not demand something else while referring to United States President Donald Trump who has repeatedly criticised the Iranian nuclear deal, signed during the Obama administration.
Trump had earlier referred to the deal as "the worst deal" of all times.
He recently threatened to pull out from the JCPOA if it does not get amended while refusing to provide Iran with any relief from the US sanctions.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani had earlier warned that if the US pulls out of Iran's nuclear deal, it would have to face severe consequences.
The JCPOA was signed on July 14, 2015, by Iran, the European Union, Germany, China, France, the United Kingdom and the United States also known as P5+1.
It guarantees the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme. Following that Iran had pledged to not develop or acquire nuclear weapons in exchange for the cancellation of sanctions imposed against the country. (ANI)
