Iran: What’s guarantee Trump won’t renege again on any future talks?

Tehran (ISNA) – In an interview with the MSNBC TV network, Iran’s ambassador to the UN discussed Tehran’s positions on issues such as US president's call for new negotiations with Iran and Tehran’s countermeasure to suspend the implementation of part of its commitments under the nuclear deal.

“US President Donald Trump had torn up the 2015 nuclear deal despite the fact that it was a multilateral nuclear accord signed by world powers and backed by the UN Security Council. All of a sudden he decided to leave the negotiating table. What is the guarantee that he will not renege again on the future talks between Iran and the United States?” Iran’s ambassador to UN, Majid Takht-Ravanchi told MSNBC.

"President Trump just said that what he wants from Iran is to not have nuclear weapons, apparently he hasn't read the 14 reports of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) saying that Iran has been upholding all its obligations based on the JCPOA nuclear deal," he said.

“JCPOA had been greatly undermined by Washington and that Iran would respond based on its national interests. Europeans have told us not to rush to get out of the nuclear deal, and we accepted their suggestion and for the last year we have been waiting for any credible and practical response, not just words of support, which are good, but it is not enough,” the Iranian envoy added.
