Iran says nuclear deal violated by new United States sanctions

On July 14, 2015, Iran and China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany, signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Tehran's nuclear program.

Under Rouhani's watch, Iran reached a landmark deal with six major powers in 2015 under which it agreed to curb its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of sanctions which had been in place for a decade.

"Today is the time for the mother of all negotiations, not mother of all bombs", Rouhani said on Saturday as he addressed parliament members and foreign guests in capital Tehran.

National Assembly Speaker Chung Sye-kyun pointed out Iran has enjoyed positive effects, including economic growth, from the agreement on its nuclear program two years ago.

During their Friday meeting, Zarif held talks with Ghana's Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia, who is in Tehran to attend President Hassan Rouhani's inauguration on Saturday.

At the ceremony, which was broadcast live on state TV, Khamenei said that Iran should continue to stand powerful in the face of its enemies.

"Overcoming unsafe threats and complicated developments in the current state of flux is not possible, except through increased contacts and interaction and establishment of dialogue with governments and nations".

"Repeated breaches of commitments by the United States administration. can be destructive", he said, quoted by the official IRNA news agency.




Mogherini, who is the EU's high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, said for her part that the global community shared interests with Iran in implementing the deal.

It would also apply sanctions to Iran's Revolutionary Guard and enforce an arms embargo.

"Iran has proved that it will respond to respect with respect, and to sanctions and threats with an appropriate response and with resistance", he added.

On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump signed into law a new batch of sanctions on Beijing, Tehran, and Moscow.

Mr Rouhani won 57% of the vote in May's election after promising to create jobs and build bridges with the outside world.

Rouhani said: "We can not remain silent about the thing which is apparently damaging our environment such as the establishment of several dams in Afghanistan like Kajaki, Kamal Khan and Salma in the north and south of Afghanistan". French company Total defied USA pressure in July by signing a multibillion-dollar gas deal with Iran.

Rouhani also called America "a country that isn't reliable when it comes to global issues".
