Iran has said that new sanctions imposed by US President Donald Trump break the terms of its nuclear deal with the United States and other world powers.
Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said in an interview with state Television that the nuclear deal has been violated and Tehran will show an appropriate and proportional response.
He said, the main goal of America in approving these sanctions against Iran is to destroy the nuclear deal. US Senate has approved sanctions last week against Iran for launching a satellite-carrying rocket into space.
The United States is one of six countries to sign up to the deal with Iran, and the others – Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany – have said they see it as a success in easing concerns that Iran might be trying to develop nuclear weapons.
