Iran to Refuse Nuclear Deal Fulfillment if US Imposes New Sanctions

Iran will not fulfill agreements reached with the six world powers on its nuclear program if the US Congress introduces new sanctions against Tehran.
ROME (Sputnik) – Iran will not fulfill agreements reached with the six world powers on its nuclear program if the US Congress introduces new sanctions against Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in an interview published Thursday.
'The obligations are the following: the group of six will not impose new sanctions, and we should fulfill the agreements. In case the Unites States or other countries fail to comply with their obligations, we will be forced to do the same,' Rouhani told the Italian Corriere della Sera newspaper, answering a question on the possibility of new US sanctions.
According to Rouhani, a US decision to withdraw only nuclear-related sanctions on Tehran but keeping other restrictions in place has led to continuous disagreement between Iran and the United States.
In July, Iran reached an agreement with the United States, Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom, and Germany, which would guarantee peaceful nature of its nuclear program and lift many of the sanctions against the country.
