Iran Announces Plans to Scrap Nuclear Deal


by Jordan Hilger, Worthy News Correspondent

(Worthy News) - Iran is planning on further scaling back its commitment to the 2015 nuclear accord July 7th, citing the failure of European signatories to find a way around Trump’s crippling sanctions.

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, who announced the changes to the Fars news agency on Tuesday, said the “political insolence” of European actors in expecting Iran to comply with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) despite the US’s withdrawal last year had led to its failure.

"Countries who interpreted Iran's 'patience' with weakness and inaction” will be proved wrong by its forthcoming turnaround on its nuclear commitments, Shamkhani suggested.

On Monday, President Trump announced further sanctions specifically targeting Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s use of American financial assets and institutions, with sanctions on Iranian foreign minister Mohmmad Javad Zarif to follow later this week.

Iran notified the world recently that, to begin its abrogation of the deal, it will exceed the 661-pound uranium limit of the JCPOA on June 27th, a threat it bolstered with claims it had quadrupled its enrichment capacity since Trump began his "maximum pressure” campaign.
