In a post on his Twitter account on Friday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi highlighted the irresponsible nature of the US government which has scrapped the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and many other international agreements.
"The JCPOA is neither the first nor the last of the multilateral achievements Trump withdrew from. The US regime has sought to secure its short-term interests at the cost of nations' long-term prosperity,” he noted.
“The regime must END its abject unilateralism,” the Iranian spokesman underscored.
Mousavi has ended his message with the hashtag “Never Trust Irresponsible US”.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14, 2015, reached a conclusion over the text of the JCPOA.
The accord took effect in January 2016 and was supposed to terminate all nuclear-related sanctions against Iran all at once, but its implementation was hampered by the US policies and its eventual withdrawal from the deal.
On May 8, 2018, US President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the nuclear accord and intensified sanctions against Iran.
