Decision on Nuclear Deal Function of National Interest

Iran will abandon the nuclear deal with world powers if its national interests are undermined by the anticipated US withdrawal, a senior lawmaker says, adding that Washington cannot dictate policy to Tehran. 
“We make decisions based on national interest. If wide-ranging sanctions are to be imposed after the US exit, there will be no point in the Islamic Republic staying in the agreement,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Relations Commission, told ICANA in an interview published on Saturday.   
He made the comments in response to US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, who last week said Iran will not pull out of the nuclear accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, because of its trade interests with Europe.
