Iran: US 'breaks promises like always' – Tehran residents condemn US exit from Iran deal

Iran, Islamic Republic of, Tehran
May 9, 2018 at 09:20 GMT -00:00 · Published

Tehran residents commented on US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the JCPOA, more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, on Wednesday.

"Whatever they [Americans] have now said is a bunch of lies," one Iranian resident said.

Another respondent stated that if Europe doesn't cooperate with America, it would help Iran. "It's very important to the world that Iran proves that it has been compliant to the deal and, unfortunately, America has been lying and breaking promises like always."

Newspapers published on Wednesday showed headlines reading a variety of messages from the uplifting, "There is no worrying regarding running the country", to somewhat more critical, "Pesky exit from the deal" by the Etemad newspaper and "Trump has torn the deal. Time to set things on fire", by Kayhan newspaper.

After the announcement on Tuesday, Trump proceeded to sign a Presidential Memorandum re-instating US sanctions against Iran that had been waived when the deal was signed in July 2015.

Under the deal, Iran stopped producing 20 percent enriched uranium and handed over the majority of its stockpile in return for international sanctions being lifted.

The deal was struck in 2015 between Iran, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France - and Germany.
