Iran rejected the demands of U.S. President Donald Trump to change the nuclear deal reached with Iran.
The treaty is an internationally recognized and completed pact and cannot be the subject of new discussions, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.
Tehran will not agree to amending and will not undertake new obligations that go beyond the framework of the treaty concluded in Vienna in 2015, the statement says.
Earlier, the U.S. President Donald Trump said that the last time he extended the regime for lifting sanctions under the nuclear agreement with Tehran.
On January 12 Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif said the nuclear deal is not negotiable.
Trump's policy & today’s announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement, maliciously violating its paras 26, 28 & 29. JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating tired rhetoric, US must bring itself into full compliance -just like Iran.— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) January 12, 2018
