Iran on US presidential election: ready for any change
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 9
By Fatih Karimov – Trend
Iran is prepared for any kind of change, if Republican candidate Donald Trump becomes the next US president, Behrouz Kamalvandi, Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said.
The Islamic Republic tries to continue nuclear deal implementation, Kamalvandi said, Tasnim news agency reported Nov. 9.
Kamalvandi was reacting to preliminary results of the US presidential elections that indicate Trump is defeating his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.
Kamalvandi further said that the Islamic Republic has long-term plans in this regard.
The P5+1 (China, France, Russia, the UK, the US as well as Germany) reached a historic deal with Iran last year to curb the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program in return for lifting the nuclear related sanctions. The deal came into force in January.
Trump has severely criticized the nuclear deal during his presidential campaign.
He has said that would rip up the Iran nuclear deal, which was aimed at curbing the nation's ability to acquire nuclear arms.
"The nuclear deal puts Iran, the number one state sponsor of radical Islamic terrorism, on a path to nuclear weapons," Trump said in one of his convention speeches.
