Iran's Supreme Leader Vows a Strong Response Against Attempts to Derail JCPOA

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Sunday warned that "any wrong doing in connection with the nuclear deal will spark reaction of the Islamic Republic of Iran", IRNA reported.

Last Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to take unspecified action against Iran next month, expressing continued dissatisfaction with the agreement.

Washington extended some sanctions relief for Iran on Thursday under Tehran's 2015 deal with world powers but said it had yet to decide whether to maintain the agreement.

"However, today, we see that despite all agreements and promises and many discussions during the negotiations, the United States treats these negotiations and their outcome in a totally oppressive and bullying manner", he was quoted as saying by Press TV.

"The Americans should know that the Iranian people will stand firm on their honorable positions and on important issues related to national interests, there will be no retreat by the Islamic Republic", Khamenei said in a speech to Iranian military academy graduates.

Moreover, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that he will explain some points about the USA misconduct pertaining to Iran's 2015 nuclear deal in his United Nations speech, official IRNA news agency reported.

President Hassan Rohani left on September 17 for the UN General Assembly in NY, where he is expected to hold talks on the nuclear deal.

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.

He said, "It is a deal that should have never, ever been made". Nevertheless, US officials stated that Washington will announce the continuation of sanctions relief for Iran in accordance with the deal.
