Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi assured on Monday that the US under Trump would not violate the international JCPOA deal unilaterally.
During his weekly press conference, Ghasemi told reporters that Iran would courageously face Trumpian scenarios whatsoever, however he said it was too early to judge Trump’s possible restrictive measures regarding Iran with House of Representative and Senate dominated by Republicans.
“Any president including Trump should work to meet the American interests; JCPOA was not about a single issue, but it encompassed diverse issues, and the Islamic Republic of Iran is prepared for any scenario new tenant of the White House would direct,” he added.
Answering a question about the Arab League’s accusations of Iran of interference with Arab affairs across the Middle East, especially in Yemen, the Iranian official said “Saudis are in absolutely defeated and untenable position in Yemen; they should come to terms with their situation first in Yemen when the smoke clears.
“After a year of attacking Yemen, they see any success of coalition impossible, so the kingdom has resorted to shifting the blame on Iran, creating an imagined enemy. They have been working to accumulate the forces of small regional Arab countries against Iran,” Ghasemi emphasized.
“A kingdom which had been actively supported and exported terrorism should decide based on facts on the grounds,” he added.
