US not trustworthy: Iran judiciary chief

Tehran, Oct 16, IRNA – Iran judiciary chief on Monday referred to the Washington approach towards Iran nuclear deal and said that the US officials showed that they are not trustworthy.

Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani recalled US President Donald Trump's October 13 anti-Iranian remarks and noted that such statements indicated that Trump has an abnormal character.

US President Donald Trump on Friday took a new strategy towards Iran and decertified Tehran's commitment to the 2015 landmark nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He also levelled some allegations against the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Commenting on Trump's remarks against IRGC, the cleric said that the US officials are angry with the failure of their plots in the region.

Javadi Amoli also called the recent US officials' anti-Iranian remarks, an opportunity for the increase of national solidarity in Iran.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) showed that Iran acts based on logic, he said in a reference to Iran's long-standing efforts to reach nuclear deal with the world powers.

Trump's approach has been criticized by many countries, international bodies, political communities and world media.

'Iran nuclear deal is not a bilateral accord and it belongs to no country and no country is able to terminate it,' High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said minutes after Trump's speech on Friday.

Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a televised message shortly after Trump's speech said his remarks were 'nothing but a handful of baseless and empty allegations against the Iranian nation'.
