Iran’s nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi said that the Islamic Republic’s Supervisory Board of the nuclear deal will decide whether to leave or remain in the nuclear agreement.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday on the sidelines of the 9th edition of Conference of ‘Gaza, Symbol of Resistance’ in Tehran, Salehi said “the decision to leave or remain in the JCPOA will be made by the JCPOA Supervisory Board which is always monitoring the circumstances and decides properly in accordance with national interests.”
Salehi, the head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), was referring to the official name of the nuclear deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action).
Separately, in response to another question regarding the Iranian TV anchorwoman held in US jail, Marzieh Hashemi, Salehi said “what a democracy is this that detains a hardworking female journalist, who went there to visit her relatives, while had not done anything wrong other than journalism, and nobody spoke against the illegal action in the country.”
The nuclear chief went on to criticize the European countries for staying silent against the illegal detention of Iranian anchorwoman by the US authorities.
With regard to the Gaza conference, Salehi said that these kinds of conferences raise the public awareness about the role that Resistance forces play against the Zionist regime.
Commenting on remarks by John Bolton, the US National Security Advisor, who claimed that Iran gives wrong information to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Iran nuclear chief wondered: “Has Mr. Bolton ever said anything honestly?”
