Iran to respond to US measures within JCPOA framework: MP

Tehran, May 7, IRNA – Iran's countermeasures against US hostile moves will be within the framework of the 2015 nuclear agreement (JCPOA), said a senior Iranian Member of Parliament Hossein Naqavi Hosseini on Tuesday.

Naqavi Hosseini made the remarks speaking one day before the first anniversary of the US unilateral exit from Iran nuclear deal.

He said the American took more hostile actions against Iran, creating many obstacles on the country.

Iran cannot keep silent to these pressures and the government will definitely put certain measures on its agenda, the lawmaker said, adding that President Hassan Rouhani will issue certain decrees tomorrow.

However, he noted that the Iranian countermeasures will not run counter to international regulations such as Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

The US withdrew from an international agreement endorsed by the United Nations and welcomed by the European Union and the international community, he said.

If the Europeans do the same and exit the deal, their act will be regarded against the international regulations, Naqavi Hosseini added.
