Iranian Rouhani: The United States realized that they made a mistake in quitting a nuclear deal

Iranian Hassan Rouhani has said the US realized that it had made a mistake by withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) for Iran’s nuclear program, TASS reported.

This was stated on Wednesday by the President of the Islamic Republic Hassan Rouhani. "They realized that they had made a big mistake in quitting the nuclear deal. Now there is no way back, no way forward," he said. The president’s speech was broadcast by Iran’s state television.

He added that "if [the US] continues to move in this direction, the arms embargo on [Iran] will be lifted." "If they want to choose a different path, for example, return to a nuclear deal, then the US will no longer have an SVP," Rouhani said.

According to him, "if someone wants the arms embargo against Iran to be restored, Tehran will respond as described in the letter from the Iranian president addressed to the leaders of the 4 + 1 countries (Russia, China, France, Great Britain and Germany - approx. TASS). " “Iran’s reaction will have serious consequences,” the politician said.

He added that "the decision to unilaterally withdraw from the nuclear deal was very stupid." "For the past two years, the United States has not achieved anything in this direction," Rouhani said.

The newspaper The New York Times on April 26 reported that the United States intends to try to get the UN Security Council to adopt a draft resolution providing for the preservation of the arms embargo against the Islamic Republic on the basis of the JCPOA.

In accordance with the provisions of this document, which was signed by the permanent five of the UN Security Council and Germany with Iran in 2015, Tehran will be able to purchase weapons and military equipment from foreign suppliers in October.
