ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan 24) – Tehran on Saturday said they would retaliate against the embargos imposed by the United States on Iran’s judiciary head as President Donald Trump stepped up efforts to “fix” a nuclear agreement between world powers and Iran.
On Friday, Trump said he would waive nuclear sanctions against Tehran for the last time to give the US and European allies a chance to fix the “terrible flaws” of the nuclear deal signed by the previous administration in 2015.
The US also declared sanctions against 14 entities and people, including Iran’s head of judiciary Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani.
“The Trump regime’s hostile action [against Larijani] crossed all red lines of conduct in the international community and is a violation of international law and will surely be answered by a serious reaction from the Islamic Republic,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry statement read.
Meanwhile, on his official Twitter account, Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Trump’s decision undermined the multilateral agreement.
“Trump’s policy & today’s announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement, maliciously violating its paras 26, 28 & 29. JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating tired rhetoric, US must bring itself into full compliance—just like Iran,” he wrote.
