Iran | Larijani Warns Europe of Consequences of Moves against Iran

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani deplored a recent decision by the European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal to trigger the dispute mechanism in the accord and said their “political skirmish” with the Islamic Republic would have consequences for them.

Larijani on Wednesday deplored a recent statement by France, Britain, and Germany about their decision to trigger the dispute mechanism in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and said the European’s behavior in dealing with Iran’s nuclear issue is similar to the Americans’.

“That the Europeans speak of taking advantage of Article 36 (of the JCPOA) shows what they intend to do,” he said.

Iran will respond, but this behavior, which is similar to that of the Americans, shows that they are in the same position of the US, Larijani added.

“Of course, it is natural that political skirmish would have consequences for both sides,” the parliament speaker went on to say.
