Iran threatens Europe with 'terrible future' if the nuclear deal is broken

The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, warned the European countries of the "terrible future" if the nuclear agreement with Iran is abolished, Interfax news agency reports with reference to the Iranian TV channel Press-TV.

"If the EU and other countries supporting a joint comprehensive action plan do not demonstrate a principled position and respond to U.S. policy in a timely fashion, they will face a terrible future and unprecedented security gaps in the region and in the whole word because of the failure of the nuclear deal, "Salehi said at a forum in Oslo.

In his opinion, European countries should be critical of the US decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Tehran.

Earlier, deputy foreign Minister of Iran Abbas Araghchi said that he did not rule that Iran would leave the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the coming weeks. According to him, the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program is currently "in resuscitation".

On May 8, American President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the U.S. from the Agreement on Iran's nuclear program and announced the restoration of the sanctions against Tehran.

In response to the actions of the US, Iran demanded from the European participants guarantees to preserve the deal. And later Iran put forward seven requirements, which are required by Teheran to continue implementing the terms of the nuclear agreement.
