According to parliamentarians, “this paper was originally very expensive, but now it is devalued by the decision of America.”
One of the deputies of the Iranian parliament:
What kind of agreements with this state can we talk about now, if it itself shows that there are no international rules and regulations for it! The agreement, which has been multilaterally worked out for several years, was simply burned by Trump. And we have no choice but to do the same in response.
Parliamentarians chanted anti-American slogans and trampled on burning papers in the meeting room.
Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani held a telephone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. Rouhani statement quotes Iranian news agency IRNA:
Contrary to Trump's views, enrichment (of uranium) in Iran has never been aimed at creating nuclear weaponsas these scientific and technical efforts were aimed at strengthening national pride and the needs of the Iranian people.
According to Rouhani, all these actions, including from the moment of the signing of the agreement, were carried out under the control of the IAEA and had nothing to do with military developments, which they are trying to blame Iran for today.
It is noteworthy that Macron expressed "regret" in connection with the decision of Trump and said that European countries will continue to comply with the agreement with Tehran.
