Trump thought Iran'd be in disarray after JCPOA exit

TEHRAN, Nov. 11 (MNA) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said that US President Donald Trump had falsely thought that the US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal would throw Iran into disarray.

It was the United States which called for holding nuclear talks and now Trump says he's ready for negotiations after violating the international agreement, Larijani added.

He made the remarks in a Saturday meeting in Tehran with Brazilian Senator Fernando Collor de Mello.

Trump's decisions have worried Europeans about economic ties, Russia about missile pact, and the world about dangers of withdrawing from JCPOA and Paris agreements, Larijani said, urging the international community to react to these destructive acts.

Pointing to Iran’s adherence to JCPOA, he added that European countries have promised to establish the required framework for conducting financial transactions.

Elsewhere, he went on to say that trade ties between Iran and Brazil can enhance, calling for increased cooperation in industrial and agricultural sectors.

Fernando Collor de Mello, for his part, said that Brazil is after strengthening ties with Iran in many fields.

Trump doesn’t respect international agreements, he said, adding that US actions are harmful for the whole world and the United Nations should take more serious actions in this regard.

Pointing to the ineffectiveness of sanctions, the former President of Brazil said that it has been 60 years that Cuba is under US sanctions but it's development is still on track.

He also highlighted that the US silence on Khashoggi's murder was because of its $140 billion arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
