Iranian Parliament Speaker Says US "Will Regret" Withdrawing From Nuclear Deal

Tyler Durden's picture

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said Monday that the US would face stiff consequences if it withdraws from the JCPA – informally known as the Iran deal.

Speaker of Iran's parliament Ali Larijani said that Iran "had a developed plan and a certain law,” should the United States withdraw from the agreement on Tehran's nuclear program, adding that Washington would "regret it,” Sputnik reported.

Larijani made the statement in St. Petersburg where he was taking part in a parliamentary forum.

President Donald Trump elicited cries of protest from the US’s co-signers of the pact, after saying last week that his administration had decided not to certify Iran's compliance with the deal and would instead leave the final decision up to Congress. The Trump administration has repeatedly insisted that, while Iran is technically complying with the terms of the pact, it is more broadly violating the “spirit” of the agreement by allegedly continuing to fund terrorist groups and developing and testing ballistic missiles.

Trump’s speech, in which he also accused Iran of being a threat to global security, elicited howls of disapproval from the US’s partners in negotiating the deal.

"We encourage the US Administration and Congress to consider the implications to the security of the US and its allies before taking any steps that might undermine the JCPOA, such as re-imposing sanctions on Iran lifted under the agreement," French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May said in a joint statement.

In Brussels, Federica Mogherini, the EU foreign policy chief, said the Iran deal is an international agreement and "it is not up to any single country to terminate it."

In a statement after Trump's speech, Russia's foreign ministry said there was no place in international diplomacy for "threatening" and "aggressive" rhetoric, adding that such methods were doomed to fail.

"It is a hangover from the past, which does not correspond to modern norms of civilised dealings between countries," the statement said.

"We viewed with regret the decision of the US President not to confirm to Congress that Iran is fulfilling in good faith" the nuclear deal, it added.

During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claimed the US is trying to stay in the Iran nuclear deal while hoping to achieve more from it, days after President Donald Trump threatened to pull the US out of the agreement.

The 2015 deal, reached between Iran and the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and the European Union, saw Tehran curtailing its nuclear program in exchange for the easing of crippling economic sanctions.

In an amusing development, Trump has urged lawmakers to adopt a bill co-sponsored by Senator “Little” Bob Corker (who has recently traded barbs with the president after saying he wouldn’t seek another term in the senate) that would impose so-called “triggers” like Iran continuing its provocative missile launches, or advancing its nuclear-enrichment capabilities to the point to where it could build a nuclear bomb in a year’s time. Any of these actions would result in sanctions immediately being reimposed.

The US's allies - not to mention President Donald Trump's political enemies - have insisted that Trump's decision to throw a wrench in the works of the deal could lead to its collapse, which in turn would result in Iran resuming its nuclear program, reviving the possibility of a future military showdown with a nuclear-armed Iran.

In 2001 Netanyahu told us Iran would have the bomb by 2005,16 years later he's still spinning the same lies,there is no friggin program

The zionist empire has been making accusations since the 80s.  Oddly, after the CIA's pet Shah was kicked to the curb.

Yup Kh, another one, back in 2003 i penned an op-ed in respomse to the then undersecretary of State Nick Burns said that Iran could have a deliverable nuke in 10 days. Such incredible liars we are forced to hear from..

This was another Obama deal that Congress refused to do its Constitutional duty on.

Trump is exactly correct on this, put it back on Congress.  They think its so great, let them own it - or not.

Not Trumps fault as others insist.

When are the sanctions against Israels illegal nukes? They are not part of the treaty. Instead our ZOG congress is drafting anti-1st amendment laws to make it illegal to criticize jews or Israel.

We are truly in "interesting" times.

Iran and DPRK hold all the aces, and the US is faced with the catch 22 of either defying Israel or starting WWIII.

We all know the Choesnites are insane. A lot of molecular biology data proves it. Ashkenazi have a higher prevalence of genetic disorders than any other population that has been studied. Inbred psychopathic fucks will destroy the world to avoid the damnation of their own souls.

Let it be know that Americans will not agree to this suicide pact. America First is mutually exclusive of zionist interests.

There is no 'spirit' in the deal....it's  fucking contract which the US has already reneged on. It is monitored by IAEA becuase the deal is about nuclear weapons and not about ballistic missiles. If it were about ballistic missiles it would be called a ballistic missile agreement and not a 'nuclear deal'.

 

Iran should STFU and let Trump shoot himself in the foot. The major EU nations, Russia, and China are pissed. If Iran keeps quiet, avoids hysterical public remarks and acts instead of making threats they will come out much better. If they make threats then the EU for sure will abandon them and fall in line with the US. They need to get close to China and Russia to start trading in other currencies. The main concern is for EU firms which have a nexus of business in the US, where their assets can be frozen if their HQ does deals with Iran....businesses like major banks. If it comes down to a choice between trading with Iran or trading with the US the EU will pick US every time no matter how immoral. Russia suffering their own sanctions and China threatened constantly with US sanctions may side with Iran and keep their economy from collapsing.

historian40's picture

Russia and China went along with sanctions before, just helped pass sanctions on North Korea, and no doubt would sanction Iran again if the zionist empire demands it.

ex Cia agent Reza Kahlili back in 2012 reported that the iranians had assets in place to attack US bases in 112 countries within 48 hours of attack there is some sting they can bring to the table

Contract? 

Obama making a deal is not a contract.

Any president after him can undo it.

A contract is a TREATY.

Go read the US Constitution to find out how a TREATY works.

Mustafa Kemal's picture

yes, you are right, the president can undo it. We understand.

Why dont you go and find out how humans react when you renig on your agreements

Contract, treaty, agreement. Call it what you will. Watch, Trumo is reviving all the hostiliities that we had just started getting past. Ooooh, Cuba, they are BAD. Ooooooh, NK, they are vewwy BAD, 

Oooh Iran, they are soooo bad we must destroy ourselves over it.

I thought we were going to MAGA

but instead  

we are MIGA

That Iran wanted an end to the sanctions everybody can understand. But they should have know that as long the neocons set the agenda of the USA they will be played around (on/off/on/off). Iran should do today what Alexander Hamilton did for the USA back than: building economic independency: by using the enormous wealth in resources and process them internal higher in the value chain. That's the choice/challenge every resource rich nation has. Iran with its young and well-educated demographics could become a global example of this new independence.

They regretted destroying Libya but it will not prevent them from destroying Iran as well.

That's what they do - destroy until one day someone can hold against it. Getting closer every day to turning the spear 180 degrees.

Anybody felt Déjà vu as things are progressing in the ME, the execution of a planned operation of creating divided-weaken Arab nations via sectarian wars and eventually take out Iran? 

Ya, this isn't surprising how the 'Twitter Man'  is calling the shot at this point in time, a war in the making.

CONgress will vote decertifying of the nuclear deal with bogus excuses like, why it's not in the best interest of fucked up U$A national security<<<aka I$$rahell>>> or at least put another deadly sanction against Iran, provoking her to retaliate or do something stupid even if moving to secure their national security around Kurds or go to aid their allies territory etc.This is considered as aggression by the west.

My worries are, down the hill, they are pulling the string in EU to follow the suit of decertifying unless renegotiating, this means no deal and scrap it.If this happens,w/c I believe will be, then it's

Game over they got Iran into their humanitarian love bomb situations, aka forming Collations, UN accusations, and boom they got the conflict in w/c they will take out Iran and worse nuke her in w/c they drag the world in all-out war etc.

Will Russia, China, and few EU signatory nations save the deal by exposing what's the others agenda is? Knowing how deep Mossad operatives have infiltrated the west, I doubt UK nor Germany, France could do to their benefit except what is on the script, opposing the chump on the surface, but in reality they follow the suit, as they are controlled by the beast system,they will wait for opportune moment to announce their scrapping of the deal and wage all sorts of war to Iran and their allies as 'terrorist'.

BTW anyone who stood against the west/I$$rhell chop-chop agenda, automatically labeled as 'terrorist' and broadcast same to the world by MSM because that terrifies them not the common people.

So if its inevitable that the next target of the chopping board is Iran then the next will be Ruskies, collaboration and developing a deterrence measure <<<by anymeans>>> is key to avoid or at least delay it by 100yrs, isn't that obvious.Give 'em a homework how to achieve their objective by complicating the equations.

Deja vu all over again?

Shia and sunni have been butchering each other for 1600 years.

They occasionally make peace with each other to butcher and enslave infidels.

The "Jews" have them beat by at least a thousand years.

2banana, do you ever read any history? 

or do you just parrot memes you get off facebook

Shia and Sunni have not been butchering each other for thousands of years.

On the other hand, if you recall those little wars WW1, WW2 and the Russian Revolution 

a whole lot of butcherin goin on and hardly a sunni or shia to be seen.

 Iran "had a developed plan and a certain law,” 

Nothing to do with common sense then - Iran is a member of the UN C24 decolonisation committee and supports Argentina's mythical Malvinas' claim. So much for the human and democratic rights of the Falkland Islanders and so much for that so-called sovereignty claim:

Falkland Islands – The Usurpation (1 pg): https://www.academia.edu/34838377/Falkland_Islands_The_Usurpation

You ever heard of a territory being taken illegally in the 19th century?

"Islamic" what, you fucking zionist POS

 

America is ruler by insane zionist FAKE "jews", who push the anti Muslim crap, so we fight their wars for them. 

 

I wish Russia and Iran would do for US, what they did for Syria. 

 

It is the "jews" that have pushed for open borders, and wars in the Middle East.

The chant American is the Great Satan is also partially used as condemnation for the US causing them to have to live under  a theocracy. No Iranian that I know wants to live that way.

Do you know any Iranians?

Is there a copy of the actual contract oblowme signed available somewhere?
Would be nice to see what odorko signed us up for.
Since the senate didn't vote on this, the iranians can go talk to odongo and john kerry (help my face is stuck) about what they agreed to. Barrack can probaly take care of this out of his pocket change.

Why do france, germany, and russia have their shorts in a wad over this? Where is the text of the contract? Who benefits from this contract? Does obunghole get a free 9 year boy every week for life or what?

When the iranians and the north koreans are usng these same vacuous threats of "bad juju" will happen if we don't do something, it is probably time to switch to a different episode of the foreign policy comedy hour.

Can anybody give us the straight story? Cankles? Tillerbutt? Vlad the topless? Merkel, i'm a closet commie? Fidel's ghost? Beuller? Anybody?
