MP: Next US President Will Stick to JCPOAMP: Next US President Will Stick to JCPOA

A lawmaker said the winner of the upcoming 2017 US presidential election cannot pull the country out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran's nuclear program. "JCPOA is an international pact and both Democrats and Republicans know this," Jalal Rahimi also told ICANA on Wednesday. "Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, the next US president will not pose a serious challenge to JCPOA, as the US has no other option," he added,  noting that the US can neither invade Iran nor pin hopes on sanctions to impose its will on Iran. The July 2015 nuclear deal, which went into effect in January, was signed by Iran and P5+1, the US, Britain, France, Russia and China, plus Germany. Clinton has announced that she will back the deal if elected, but Trump has repeatedly attacked the accord and vowed to tear it apart and renegotiate a new deal that better serves the US interests.
