Iranian Ultimatum: Iran Reveals Exactly What They Will Do If The U.S. Pulls Out Of Deal

The Iran nuclear deal has been holding by a thread since President Trump first entered the White House. Trump has called the deal one of the worst negotiated and is vehemently against the deal. The deal is set to sunset on May 12 and the international community is sitting on the edge of their seats for a final decision from Trump.

Deal, or no deal?

European allies including French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have sought to coax Trump into keeping the deal while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has advised Trump to negotiate a better deal.

Those are the options on the table, but the nation of Iran may not be willing to negotiate a different deal. According to Yahoo News, the country will walk away from the negotiating table the second the U.S. ends the original agreement.

Iran warned on Thursday that it will quit a landmark nuclear deal with world powers if President Donald Trump pulls the United States out of the accord.

“If the United States withdraws from the nuclear deal, then we will not stay in it,” Ali Akbar Velayati, foreign policy advisor to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was quoted as saying by the state television website.

Trump has threatened to abandon the agreement when it comes up for renewal on May 12, calling it “insane”.

Iran has always denied it sought a nuclear weapon, insisting its atomic programme was for civilian purposes.

Velayati warned against any move to try to renegotiate the deal signed by Iran and six world powers in 2015 curbing Tehran’s nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief.

“Iran accepts the nuclear agreement as it has been prepared and will not accept adding or removing anything,” Velayati said. “Even if countries allied with the United States, especially the Europeans, seek to revise the nuclear agreement… one of our options will be withdrawing from the accord.”

While international leaders have spoken with Trump, there seems to be an uncertainty as to what he will ultimately decide.

“I don’t know what the US president will decide on May 12,” Macron said, per Yahoo. “I just want to say whatever the decision will be, we will have to prepare such a broader negotiation and a broader deal, because I think nobody wants a war in the region, and nobody wants an escalation in terms of tension in the region.”

Here’s more from Reuters:

Trump has said that unless European allies fix the “terrible flaws” in the Iran nuclear deal by May 12, he will refuse to extend U.S. sanctions relief for oil-producing Iran.

“Iran will not renegotiate what was agreed years ago and has been implemented,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a video message posted on YouTube.

European signatories of the deal have been trying to persuade Trump to save the pact. They argue that Iran has been abiding by its terms, a position also taken by U.S. intelligence assessments.

“Let me make it clear absolutely and once for all: we will neither outsource our security, nor will we renegotiate or add on to a deal we have already implemented in good faith,” Zarif said.
