IRGC commander says Iran has 'no need for the JCPOA, whether or not the US rejoins the deal'
President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Obama-era nuclear deal that the U.S., China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and the European Union made with Iran.
Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander Gen. Hossein Salami said on Wednesday that Iran does not need the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal.
President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Obama-era nuclear deal that the U.S., China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and the European Union made with Iran. Algemeiner reported that Salami told Iranian official media that the deal is "no longer necessary" regardless of if the next U.S. president resuscitates it.
Salami said that the Islamic Republic of Iran had “no need for the JCPOA, whether or not the U.S. rejoins the deal,” according to the outlet. He said that it was "a divine pledge that our enemies' plots will backfire."
The IRGC was designated by the U.S. as a “terrorist organization” in 2019.
