The ‘anger’ of the US towards Iran’s nuclear deal proves that JCPOA was to the benefit of Iran. This is what President of Iran Hassan Rouhani said while addressing students of Farhangian University in Tehran on Sunday, reports Mehr.
Answering a student’s question on why Iran had put trust in the US, Rouhani said “we didn’t place any trust in America; we told them that we would sign the deal after it is approved by the United Nations; we did our job right.” “Just see how much America is angry at the JCPOA,” he said, pointing to remarks by a US official who had voiced concern over Iran’s ability to buy and sell arms in the coming months as the UN embargo is going to be lifted.
The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is angry at Europeans for failing to adopt any measure against Iran’s reduction of commitments, said Rouhani, adding, “this shows that the JCPOA was to our benefit.”
He said that the JCPOA was neither ‘sacred’ nor ‘damned’, but “an international agreement which we should try to reap benefits from.”
