Iran, Islamic Republic of, Tehran
May 9, 2018 at 10:48 GMT -00:00 · Published

Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani claimed that US President Donald Trump doesn't have the "mental capacity to solve issues," speaking in Tehran on Wednesday, one day Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal

Larijani pointed out that America "has been saddled with narcissist and amateur politics."

"All his efforts are to destroy whatever the previous US president has done," he added.

Stressing that "language of force is more suitable " in deadline with Trump, Larijani said "Iran has no obligations to stay in its previous place regarding the nuclear issue."

Under the deal, known formally as the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), 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.

Trump also signed a Presidential Memorandum re-instating US sanctions against Iran that had been waived when the deal was signed in July 2015.
