Iran's president warned Tuesday that it could ramp up its nuclear program and quickly achieve a more advanced level if the US continues "threats and sanctions" against his country, which signed a landmark nuclear accord with world powers in 2015.
President Hassan Rouhani told his lawmakers that if the nuclear deal fell apart, it would mean tension with America, and in case Washington insists on following the line of threats and sanctions, Iran could change tracks and turn to a more advanced level of nuclear applications.
In a meeting with new Austrian Ambassador to Tehran Stefan Scholz who submitted his credentials, Rouhani said the nuclear deal is "a win-win agreement" which removed Western states' concerns while ending the cruel sanctions against the Islamic republic.
"Iran can not be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage".
The Iran lobby said that these additional sanctions were threatening the essence of the nuclear deal and warned that it could push Iran closer to nuclear weapons if the deal was dismantled. Parliament voted to spend more money on the ballistic missile program. "The United States is not a good partner or a reliable negotiator".
"I think unilateral sanctions. are irresponsible actions that can hurt and undermine the balance achieved", Lavrov was quoted as saying by Reuters. "It was Iran's preference, but it was not and will not remain Iran's only option", he added.
Remaining U.S. sanctions on Iran make it hard to do business with the country.
In fact, Trump may be violating the deal's spirit.
While acknowledging that the test was "not a direct violation" of the nuclear agreement, it imposed sanctions on 25 individuals and entities connected to its missile programme and the powerful Revolutionary Guards force.
Lavrov also said he hoped the U.S. would not violate its obligations under the deal. Governors from the Central Bank of Iran met last month with representatives from the International Monetary Fund to discuss lingering capital issues and the US government previous year lifted some restrictions.
President Rouhani stressed the need for more Iran-Russia consultations and cooperation toward the settlement of regional issues in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq, particularly in the fight against terrorism.
President Donald Trump said that if the DPRK continues threats against his country, Pyongyang would be met with " fire and fury ". The comments came ahead of a planned meeting between President Moon Jae-in and Gen.
