Zarif Warns of “Unpleasant” Response to Trump’s JCPOA Pullout Zarif Warns of “Unpleasant” Response to Trump’s JCPOA Pullout

An array of options is available to Iran in response to an anticipated US pullout from the 2015 nuclear deal, said Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran would act based on its national interest. It has at its disposal a wide range of intra- and extra-JCPOA options. The response from Iran and the comity of nations would be  unpleasant to the Americans," he was quoted as saying by ISNA. 
JCPOA stands for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal title of the landmark nuclear accord.
Zarif was speaking to reporters after arriving in New York on Friday to attend a United Nations General Assembly meeting for sustaining peace.
The nuclear deal led to easing of economic sanctions for time-bound curbs on Tehran's nuclear development.
