Imam Khamenei: Iran to Set Fire to Nuclear Deal if West Violates

Imam Khamenei
As he stressed that Iran is committed to nuclear deal clinched between Iran and world powers, Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Sayyed Ali Khameni threatened to set fire to the deal if the West violates it.
Imam Khameni was responding to threats made by US presidential hopefuls to scrap last year’s nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“We will not violate the JCPOA, but if the opposite side violates it – as US presidential candidates are currently threatening to tear up the JCPOA – if they tear up the JCPOA, we will burn it,” the Leader said in a meeting with the heads of the three branches of the Iranian government and the country’ senior officials in Tehran on Tuesday.
His eminence warned of enemy plots to hinder Iran’s progress.
“The agenda of the enemy today is to stop or eliminate the capabilities of the Islamic Republic or at least to prevent their growth,” Imam Khamenei said.
He said the US has so far failed to fulfill a major part of its obligations under the JCPOA but Iran has abided by its commitments such as regarding its 20 percent uranium enrichment as well as Fordow and Arak nuclear facilities.
“Under the JCPOA, the other side was duty-bound to lift the sanctions which it has not done. The banking issues have not been solved. The issue of the insurance of oil tankers is implemented at a limited level,” the Leader said.
“The oil payment and our assets which we have in other countries are not returned to us,” Imam Khamenei added.
The Leader emphasized that it is a “misconception that we [the Islamic Republic] can come to terms with the US. We cannot rely on illusions.”
