Iran nuclear deal: Tehran threatens to 'shred' agreement if U.S. withdraws support

U.S. President Donald Trump is on the front page following news that he has decertified a nuclear deal between the two countries and others

"Or if they ask, 'Why does Iran have missiles?' then our response is, 'Why do they have missiles and nuclear weapons?'"

"It has always been our plan to develop our ties and relations with Europe within our values and beliefs", opined the Iranian official touching upon Iran-Europe relations after the landmark agreement of 2015, "However, the truth is that Europe has not done the same since the nuclear deal was signed".

"I donĀ“t want to waste my time on answering the rants and whoppers of the brute U.S. president", Khamenei said in a speech to students in Tehran, published on his Telegram channel. "Europe must stand against practical measures [taken] by America", he said.

"But we will try on our side to obtain the comfort that we can continue the project, which will be our priority", he added.

Mr. Khamenei, Iran's highest authority, welcomed their support but said it was not sufficient.

Mr. Khamenei also said Iran was determined to continue its disputed ballistic missile program despite the pressure from Europe and the United States to suspend it.




He also said that his new strategy begins with imposing tough sanctions on the IRGC, accusing Iran of "proliferation of missiles and weapons that threaten its neighbor's global trade and freedom of navigation".

"Why do YOU have missiles? We do not think it is acceptable for the Europeans to join America in its bullying".

It has called upon the Islamic Republic not to "undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons".

Supporters of the deal fear Trump's decision to decertify the deal could eventually unravel it, causing more tension in the crisis-hit Middle East, where Shi'ite Iran is involved in a decades long proxy war with USA ally Sunni Saudi Arabia.

Iran has one of the biggest ballistic missile programs in the Middle East, viewing it as an essential precautionary defense against the United States and other adversaries, primarily Gulf Arab states and Israel.

The Leader further hit back at Trump's anti-Iran allegations and said US President Donald Trump shows stupidity, but this should not distract Iran from the Americans' deceitfulness.
