Iran: Rouhani calls potential US withdrawal from JCPOA 'a mistake of historical proportions'

Iran, Islamic Republic of, Sabzevar
May 6, 2018 at 08:37 GMT -00:00 · Published

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani commented on the potential US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, while speaking to a large crowd in Sabzevar on Sunday.

"The path that the US has taken, if it wants to exit the JCPOA, it’ll see very soon that it will lead to a mistake of historical proportions," Rouhani said, adding "we will make and store whatever amount of weapons and missiles our country needs. It’s no one’s business what decision the nation of Iran has taken for its defense and security."

On January 12, Trump set a 120-day deadline for US lawmakers and European allies, including the UK, France and Germany, to overhaul the JCPOA or he would withdraw from the deal.

May 12 is the deadline by which Trump either has to issue new waivers to suspend US sanctions against Iran or exit the nuclear deal.
