Tehran, Iran

The Week Middle East - - News -

Iran could aban­don its nu­clear agree­ment with world pow­ers “within hours” if the United States im­poses any more new sanc­tions Ira­nian Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani warned on Tues­day. “If Amer­ica wants to go back to the ex­pe­ri­ence (of im­pos­ing sanc­tions), Iran would cer­tainly re­turn in a short time – not a week or a month but within hours – to con­di­tions more ad­vanced than be­fore the start of ne­go­ti­a­tions,” Rouhani told a ses­sion of par­lia­ment broad­cast live on state tele­vi­sion. Iran says new US sanc­tions breach the agree­ment it reached in 2015 with the United States, Rus­sia, China and three Euro­pean pow­ers in which it agreed to curb its nu­clear work in re­turn for the lift­ing of most sanc­tions.
