Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, said Friday that if Iran does not achieve its goals outlined in the 2015 nuclear deal, it cannot stay in the deal.
Senior officials in Tehran are making explicit statements indicating unambiguously that Tehran would leave the international agreement following the US withdrawal, he recalled.
“If Iran's goals are not achieved, it would be impossible to keep  (the deal) alive” he said, adding that Iran cannot and should not be expected to uphold the deal and be under sanctions at the same time, Mehr News Agency reported.
He made the remarks in a meeting at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) in Oslo attended by that country’s  foreign ministry officials, NUPI scholars and researchers as well as representatives from Norwegian institutions.
