No Iran nu­clear re­view

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

TEHRAN: Ira­nian Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani said Iran will not ac­cept a re­view of its in­ter­na­tional nu­clear deal, re­ported lo­cal me­dia yesterday.

The in­ter­na­tional nu­clear deal, known as the Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tion, re­solved Tehran’s decade-long con­tro­ver­sial nu­clear is­sue.

“Rene­go­ti­a­tion (of the deal) is to­tally mean­ing­less, and a re­turn to the past is im­pos­si­ble,” Rouhani said in re­sponse to re­cent re­marks by Rex Tiller­son, Don­ald Trump’s choice as sec­re­tary of state.

Tiller­son said in his Se­nate con­fir­ma­tion hear­ing that he rec­om­mends a “full re­view” of the nu­clear deal with Iran.
