Tehran (ISNA) - The United States will be on the losing side, if the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is violated, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi said.

"If the U.S. violates the JCPOA, Iran will have all its options on the table," Salehi stressed in the interview with Lebanon's al-Mayadeen TV, Aug 8.

The Iranian official, nevertheless, noted that, since, besides the United States, the deal involved other governments and organizations, US departure from it will not be followed by negative consequences.

"In case when JCPOA is violated, US will be responsible, because the International Atomic Energy Agency has so far issued seven reports saying that Iran has always stayed committed to its obligations. Therefore, there are no grounds for the violation of the deal on the part of Iran".
