Additional protocol being cancelled, if arms embargo extended: Iran
Mashhad (IP) - The Deputy-Speaker of Iran's Parliament said in case the UN Security Council extends arms embargo on Iran, it discards the Additional Protocol, and the cooperation with International Atomic Energy Agency will be disturbed.
Iran Press/ Iran news: In an exclusive interview with Iran Press in Mashhad, southwest Iran, Amirhossein Qazizadeh Hashemi noted that the US seeks to revive the restrictions on Iran's armed activities which will be ended under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Qazizadeh Hashemi added that if the UNSC and the member states, particularly the Europeans, are enticed by the US, Iran's Parliament will not allow the former considerations to happen in cooperation with IAEA.
Although numerous restrictions and sanctions have been imposed on Iran under the shadow of the JCPOA, we hope that the UNSC member states do not make strategic mistakes and miscalculation he stressed.
