Teheran, in case of US withdrawal from the agreement on the atomic programme, may accelerate its nuclear program . This was stated by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif .
The program is reviewed every three months in the United States. Zarif noted that this certification is an internal procedure of the US and does not relieve the US authorities of responsibility, because “the only authority for verification under the transaction is the IAEA.”
Zarif said that Iran can withdraw from the agreement and return to the nuclear program at a faster pace. The minister stressed that the program will remain peaceful.
In the summer of 2015, Tehran and the “six” international mediators reached an agreement on the settlement of the Iranian nuclear issue. Iran was removed from sanctions. However, Trump recently stated that he was thinking about withdrawing from the agreement .
