Iranian MPs Set Fire to JCPOA After US Exit

The IAEA is closely following developments related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

"Indonesia hopes other states? parties of the JCPOA would continue to honor their commitment, and the global community would maintain support for the agreement, it stated. We consider the JCPOA essential for worldwide security and support implementation of all its terms", Senemaud said during a meeting with deputy governor of Sistan-Baluchestan province.

In a speech from the White House on Tuesday night, Trump accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism and seeking nukes before announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear accord.

The other parties are now looking into ways to salvage the agreement, with the foreign ministers of France, Britain and Germany due to meet Iranian representatives next Monday. The deal took effect in January 2016.

The IRGC chief said the United States exit showed Iran's nuclear program was just a pretext for the United States to place pressure on Iran, and their real concern is Iran's military might and its regional influence.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that the US will suffer "historic regret" if Trump's administration quits the JCPOA.

The Iranian regime has complied with its nuclear commitments made under the deal signed in 2015, the IAEA director general said in a statement, just one day after US President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal.
