An Iranian MP said that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is an international agreement that is only observed by the Iranian side.

Iran Press/Iran news: In an exclusive interview with Iran Press News Agency, Amir-Hossein Ghazizadeh Hashemi said: "The JCPOA is an international agreement which is only observed by the Iranian side, even our friends including China or Russia did not support us as much as we expected. Europe did not help us at all and the US left JCPOA completely, we are not optimistic about JCPOA and the US’ return to this agreement."

"Incoming US president Joe Biden or any other president in the United States has an opinion to say. Iran has powerful tools, technological manpower, mines, natural and financial resources, and neighboring countries that can build the country's economy and its growth," he added.

Referring to the assassination of the late commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), Lt Gen Qassem Soleimani, the parliamentarian said: "The enemies of Iran commit any crime, they assassinated the highest military person of the country and they want to return to what they themselves have left the and then we resume negotiations with them, it has nothing except humiliating the nation and destroying Iran's dignity."

"One of the reasons that the Arab countries in the south of the Persian Gulf stood against Iran was our behavior in JCPOA since we broke the authority of the Iranian people and it caused a change in their behavior to establish relations with Israel obviously," he noted.
