US in bid to dismantle nuclear deal – Iran
IRAN will not fall into the “trap” that the Trump administration is attempting to set in order to force the collapse of the 2015 nuclear deal, President Hassan Rouhani said this week.
The US “ploy today is to behave in such a way as to have Iran say ‘I am walking away’ from the agreement”, Rouhani told his cabinet, according to the state-run Iranian Students News Agency.
Iran “needs to be aware not to fall into their trap”, he said.
Rouhani’s intervention came after the US again made clear its readiness to confront Iran and the accord that scaled back its nuclear programme in return for sanctions relief.
On Monday, it imposed new sanctions over what it called Iran’s persistent efforts to destabilise the Middle East. Bloomberg
