Iran's Khamenei Warns Against 'Wrong Move' On Nuclear Deal

Iranian senior officials on Sunday warned against the US "breach" of nuclear deal reached in 2015 and called for Washington's adherence to its pertaining commitments.

Imam Khamenei gave the enemies a warning in case of breaching the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, reached between Iran and the P5+1 regarding Iran's peaceful nuclear program, by saying: Any wrong move, by the domineering powers towards the JCPOA, will face the Islamic Republic's response.

The news comes as the Trump administration is seemingly struggling to put the nuclear deal in question.

Washington last week extended some sanctions relief that was granted under the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers under which Iran has significantly limited its controversial nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

"The Iranian nation is standing firmly, and any wrong move by the hegemonic system concerning the JCPOA would receive the Islamic Republic's reaction", the Leader stressed.

President Trump, for his part, on Thursday promised: "You'll see what I'm going to be doing very shortly in October".

On regional issues, he noted that the reasons behind insecurity in the Middle East can be traced to the "wicked and mischievous interventions" by the US.

On Saturday, Rouhani urged the European Union to press the United States to abide by its commitments to the nuclear deal reached in 2015, Tehran Times daily reported.

While Iranian officials chose to hold nuclear negotiations and even retreat from part of the country's rights to have the sanctions lifted, the U.S. is behaving in a cruel, bullying and forceful manner despite all of those negotiations, commitments, Imam Khamenei said.

The head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Salehi, said earlier this month that his country wanted to adhere to the nuclear deal even if the United States withdrew.
