The tensions between the United States and Iran have reached a critical level following the assassination of Qasim Solaimani, commander of the elite Quds Force in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.
In response to threats to avenge Iran, US President Donald Trump has also threatened to retaliate if attacks on the United States will be carried out in 12 places in Iran. Iran is about to take a new step after Trump’s remarks. Iran is thought to be able to escape the nuclear deal negotiated by the 27th.
Iran’s top leaders will hold important meetings on Sunday night to determine the future of the nuclear deal with six major powers, including the United States, according to a news agency Reuters report. Abbas Moussavi, a spokesman for the country’s foreign ministry, told the state news agency IRNA.
“The most urgent meeting was called on Sunday night to decide what would happen to our next nuclear program,” Abbas Moussavi said. The implementation of the nuclear agreement made in 20 will also be discussed. The recent threats from the United States prove that the situation in politics is improving and the threat is inter-related. “
Iran had a nuclear deal with the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and China during Barack Obama’s presidency in the 21st. The key point of the agreement was that Iran would restrict its nuclear activities, and the International Atomic Energy Commission could visit Iran’s nuclear facilities at any time. In exchange, the United States lifted the economic blockade on Iran.
But the US withdrew from the deal last year after Trump came to power. At the same time, he imposed economic sanctions on Iran. Referring to the agreement as flawed and one-sided, Trump said Iran’s nuclear capabilities could not be stopped by this agreement.
