Iranian parliamentary members burned a US flag in the Majlis and chanted “Death to America” in the wake of US President Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal.
US President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the JPCOA, more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, speaking from the White House on Tuesday.
Trump declared: “It is clear to me this deal cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement– the Iran deal is defective at its core… I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”
The White House stated that the United States withdrawal from the JCPOA will pressure the Iranian regime to alter its course of malign activities and ensure that Iranian bad acts are no longer rewarded. As a result, both Iran and its regional proxies will be put on notice. As importantly, this step will help ensure global funds stop flowing towards illicit terrorist and nuclear activities.
