Rouhani Vows “Crushing Response” If US Extends Arms Embargo on Iran
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday pledged a “crushing response” to the United States if it continues the plan to extend arms embargo on Tehran.
Under Iran’s deal with world powers to accept limits to its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of sanctions, a United Nations weapons embargo is due to expire in October this year.
However, the US is pushing for an extension to the embargo by the United Nations.
Rouhani once again on Wednesday criticized the US for abandoning the 2015’s Nuclear Deal, saying that Washington had made a “stupid mistake” by exiting the multilateral agreement.
“If America wants to return to the deal, it should lift all the sanctions on Tehran and compensate for the reimposition of sanctions,” said Rouhani.
“Iran will give a crushing response if the arms embargo on Tehran is extended,” the Iranian president added. Source
