Trump accused Iran of violating the nuclear deal

The President of the United States Donald Trump criticized Iran for violation of the Joint comprehensive plan of action. The corresponding post was published by the American leader on Twitter.

“Iran violated the $ 150 billion (plus $ 1.8 billion in cash) nuclear deal with the United States and other countries that paid nothing long before I became President — and now they have violated the stockpile limit agreements. Not good!”— Trump wrote.

Tehran announced on July 1 that it had accumulated more low-enriched uranium than was permitted under the 2015 nuclear agreement. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that this step is not a violation, and pointed out that the country exercises its right to respond to the US withdrawal from the transaction.

In late June, Zarif said that the wrong understanding of things by Trump jeopardizes the possibility of peace. He noted that negotiations and threats in the relations between the two sides are mutually exclusive concepts.

On June 19, Iran refused to extend the deadline of its ultimatum to exit from the agreement, despite the request of the countries of Europe. Iranian authorities have suspended the execution of certain obligations on the nuclear program in mid-May. At the same time, they gave Europe 60 days to fulfill the terms of the agreement.

The JCPOA agreement on Iran was signed in summer 2015 between Tehran and six intermediary countries — Russia, USA, Great Britain, China, France, Germany. In early May 2018, Trump announced Washington’s unilateral withdrawal from the deal and the resumption of anti-Iranian sanctions.
