Iran will stand firm against any 'wrong move' by US over nuclear deal, says Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Iran‘s Supreme Leader has warned Iran would react strongly to any “wrong move” by the United States on Tehran’s nuclear accord with world powers.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei‘s statement comes days after Donald Trump said Iran had violated the agreement’s “spirit”.

“The Iranian nation is standing firm and any wrong move by the domineering regime regarding the [nuclear accord] will face the reaction of the Islamic Republic,” state television quoted the Ayatollah as saying.

The US President had called the nuclear accord “one of the worst deals I’ve ever seen” and hinted he may attempt to rescind the deal.

“You’ll see what I’m going to be doing very shortly in October,” Mr Trump said. “The Iran deal is one of the worst deals I’ve ever seen.

“Certainly at a minimum the spirit of the deal is atrociously kept. The Iran deal is not a fair deal to this country. It’s a deal that should not have ever been made.”

The head of Iran’s atomic programme previously warned the country would be able to create highly enriched uranium within five days of the US ending the nuclear agreement. 

Ali Akbar Salehi, one of Iran’s vice presidents, made the comments on state TV in apparent reaction to increased sanctions imposed by America last month.

He suggested the country could achieve 20-per cent enriched uranium in “at most” five days – a level at which it could then quickly be processed further into weapons-grade nuclear material.

“Definitely, we are not interested in such a thing happening,” Mr Salehi said. “We have not achieved the deal easily to let it go easily. We are committed to the deal and we are loyal to it.”
