Condemned America for withdrawing from nuclear deal
The Russian foreign minister condemned the US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. Let us tell you that the Trump administration had abandoned this agreement two years ago, saying it was unilateral. Whereas other European countries Britain, France and Germany involved in this agreement declared to remain in the agreement. Since then, Iran has also talked about intensifying its nuclear programs.
Iran will avenge the killing of nuclear scientist
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and its supreme clergyman Ayatollah Ali Khamani directly named Israel for the assassination of Mohsin Fakhrizadeh. Both the top leaders had openly warned that they would not spare the culprits of killing their nuclear scientist. At the same time, senior officials of the Iranian army have alleged that Fakhrizadeh was fired from a remote-controlled machine gun and then exploded in the attacking vehicle.
