JAHAN NAMA: Iran Warns US Against Violating Nuclear Deal
Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has called on European leaders to defy possible US sanctions if President Donald Trump’s administration torpedoes the international nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic.
Zarif warned that if Europe followed Washington’s lead, the deal would collapse and Iran would emerge with more advanced nuclear technology than before the agreement was reached in Vienna in 2015. However, he insisted that technology would not be used to make weapons, in line with Tehran’s obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
In this episode of Jahan Nama, host Jamalnaser Farahmand discusses the topic with political analyst Farid Mohammadi.
