TEHRAN, Jan. 12 (Press Shia) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Friday that US President Donald Trump’s latest decision on the nuclear deal between Iran and major powers undermined the solid multilateral agreement.

Calling Trump’s act a violation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Javad Zarif said JCPOA is in no way renegotiable.

Trump said on Friday he would waive nuclear sanctions against Iran for the last time to give Washington and its European allies a chance to fix the “terrible flaws” of the 2015 nuclear deal.

“Trump’s policy & today’s announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement, maliciously violating its paras 26, 28 & 29. JCPOA (the nuclear deal) is not renegotiable: rather than repeating tired rhetoric, US must bring itself into full compliance – just like Iran,” Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his Twitter account.
