EghtesadOnline: Iran will adopt pre-planned measures towards violation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Secretary of Iranian Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said.
All international bodies and all countries confirm that Iran has been bound to its obligations enshrined in the JCPOA and if the deal is violated by other sides of negotiations, Tehran will adopt preplanned reciprocal technical measures immediately, the official said.
He noted that US sanctions resulted in scientific, industrial and military progress of Iran but the extension of them is violation of the deal signed between Iran and G5+1, according to IRNA.
Changes in the leadership and political system of world powers are not important for the Islamic Republic, Shamkhani added.
He said the US officials' confessions about the high costs of US interference in other countries prove that Iran had a right policy towards Washington in the past three decades.
The US House of Representatives voted by an overwhelming majority of 419 to one for a 10-year reauthorization of the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), a law first adopted in 1996 to punish investments in Iran's energy industry.
The Iran measure could expire at the end of 2016 if it were not renewed. It must still be passed by the Senate and signed by President Barack Obama in order to become a law.
Elsewhere in his remarks, secretary of Iranian Supreme National Security Council said Arbaeen ceremony demonstrates the soft power of Muslims and enhances political, cultural and social capacities of the Islamic World.
Arbaeen is a Shia Muslim religious observance that occurs forty days after the Day of Ashura. It commemorates martyrdom of Imam Hossein, the third Imam of Shia Muslims which falls on the 10th day of the month of Muharram, (Nov 20, this year). More than 2 million Shia Muslims from all over the world gather on this day in Karbala, Iraq to perform mourning ceremonies.
Shamkhani criticized certain reactionary Arab governments' support for Takfiri terrorists and said unfortunately, certain countries are weakening the Islamic World potentials for confronting the Zionist regime.
The Zionist regime should be exposed as the top threat against the Islamic World, Shamkhani said.
