Ayatollah Khamenei Warns Against "Any Wrong Move" on Nuclear Deal

  • Nuclear deal beneficial to regional, global security: Iran's president

If he does not, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions waived under the deal.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei condemned what he termed "Washington's disloyalty to the 2015 nuclear deal", warning that "any wrong move" by the United States will be followed by Tehran's "tough reaction". "Every wrong step by the aggressive regime [the US] regarding the nuclear deal will be met with a response from the Islamic Republic".

Khamenei noted that "the Iranian nation is standing firmly, and any wrong move by the hegemonic system concerning the JCPOA would receive the Islamic republic's reaction", Tasnim news agency reported.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei responded Sunday to US President Donald Trump's claim about Tehran violating the nuclear deal's "spirit".

Rouhani made the remarks at Mehrabad airport before departing for NY to attend the annual UN General Assembly meeting.

Rouhani also said he he was "inviting" the USA to dinner.

Iran denies its missile development breaches the resolution, saying its missiles are not created to carry nuclear weapons.

"The opponents of the JCPOA are restricted to two or three countries, including some in the United States, who feel cheated".

The U.S. administration has frequently charged that Tehran breaks the "spirit" of the deal by continuing to test-launch ballistic missiles and rockets capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The Iranian nation stands strong.

Washington last week extended some sanctions relief that was granted under the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers under which Iran has significantly limited its controversial nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

"If the nuclear deal is discarded, Iran will be able to return to its previous status and grow even more powerful than the past before the time planned", he added.

The global agreement is facing a serious threat of collapse as tensions mounted between Washington and Tehran recently.
