Larijani: Iran Won’t Wait Forever For EU Treaty Decision
Speaker of Iran's Islamic Consultative Assembly [Parliament] Ali Larijani said that if Europe is to save the historic 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA] deal, it must announce decisions "explicitly and swiftly."
Speaking Sunday at an open session of the Parliament, Larijani said that the Islamic Republic is waiting for Europe's decisions on the endangered JCPOA - informally referred to as the Iranian nuclear deal. However, he also noted that time is running out, as Tehran expects Europe to make a decision "explicitly and swiftly."
"Time for negotiations is running out. If Europe sees itself able to preserve the nuclear deal, it should declare its stance sooner and more clearly," Larijani told a parliamentary session.
"Otherwise, the Islamic Republic will make new moves, in the nuclear field as well as other issues," he warned.
Larijani also strongly criticized Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accusing him of attempting to persuade EU nations to drop the deal after US President Donald Trump announced that Washington would abandon the historic treaty.
"The next issue is the wanderings of the filthy prime minister of the Zionist regime across Europe trying to make Europe follow America in walking out of the nuclear deal," Larijani declared, according to Tehran Times.
