Exiting JCPOA will evoke unpleasant reaction for US: Zarif


Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said that Tehran's reaction will be unpleasant for the US if it decides to ditch the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA.)

"If the US decides to exit from the JCPOA the reaction it will receive from Iran and the international community will be unpleasant," said Zarif while addressing reporters in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, before returning to Tehran on Tuesday.

He added that Iran has on multiple occasions stressed that in the case of such an event it will safeguard its national interests, Press TV reported.

Zarif further noted that the JCPOA is a multilateral deal which cannot be renegotiated.

The Iranian foreign minister's remarks come ahead of a May 12 deadline for US President Donald Trump to decide whether to extend waivers of economic sanctions on Iran.
