Iran said they would not renegotiate the nuclear deal after US President-elect Donald Trump comes into office. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran Abbas Araghchi before the first anniversary of the implementation of the agreement.
"The new US administration cannot abandon the deal," Araghchi said, adding that Washington has international obligations on implementation of the agreement.
Araghchi repeated previous statements of the supreme leader Ali Khamenei, who said: "If they (the US – Ed.) tear it up (agreement – Ed.) we will burn it.”
Therefore, Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran emphasized that there will be no further discussions with US officials on the agreement.
"Our nuclear negotiations with Americans are completed, and we have no other political negotiations with them, in our opinion, it's all over." Araghchi said.
As it was reported, Donald Trump during his election campaign claimed about the possibility of cancelling or renegotiating the agreement on the limitation of Iranian nuclear programs in exchange for the lifting of sanctions.
Trump also criticized the agreement because, in his opinion, it guarantees too many things for Iran.
The contract with Iran was signed in summer 2015 by the United States, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and China. Iran in exchange for the gradual lifting of the sanctions agreed to allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors to its nuclear facilities and has made a number of other concessions.
