Iran to leave nuclear deal if it fails to serve national interests, says Ayatollah Khamenei

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned that Iran will leave the 2015 nuclear deal it signed with six world powers if it fails to serve its interests.

"The JCPOA (the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) is a means, not the goal, and if we come to this conclusion that it cannot serve [our] national interests, we will leave it," the Leader in a meeting with President Hassan Rouhani and members of his cabinet in Tehran on Wednesday.

Ayatollah Khamenei also said Iran would not negotiate with the current “brazen and irreverent” US officials at any level to reach a new agreement on its nuclear program.

“The result of negotiations with previous US officials who at least saved faces was this. Now what negotiation can we have with the current brazen and irreverent US officials who are openly threatening the Iranians? Therefore, no negotiation at any level will be held with the Americans.” The Leader pointed out.
