TEHRAN, May. 08 (Press Shia) – Following Trump’s decision to pull out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, President Hassan Rouhani said the JCPOA is now an agreement between Iran and five countries, adding that economic growth with continue in spite of it.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the nation in a televised speech Tuesday night following Donald Trump’s announcement that Washington would withdraw from the landmark nuclear deal and reinstate sanctions that were lifted under the agreement.

“For 40 years we have been saying, and I say it one more time tonight, that Iran always lives up to its commitments while the US has never done so,” the president said. “The US has always adopted hostile stances against the Islamic Republic.”

“From this moment onward, the JCPOA is an agreement between Iran and five countries, and the 5+1 has just lost its ‘1’,” Rouhani continued. “We have now a JCPOA without the US in it, but our economic growth will continue.”
