Iranian legislators chanted ‘Death to America’ and burned the US flag on the floor of the Islamic Republic’s parliament Wednesday, just hours after President Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear agreement.
The spontaneous demonstrations broke-out as other Iranian officials urged European nations to remain within the treaty, but warned that Tehran can now “begin” its nuclear energy program “without any limitations.”
“If necessary, we can begin our industrial enrichment without any limitations,” the Iranian leader said. “Until implementation of this decision, we will wait for some weeks and will talk with our friends and allies and other signatories of the nuclear deal, who signed it and who will remain loyal to it. Everything depends on our national interests.”
The President announced his decision to withdraw from the Obama-era agreement Tuesday, warning Iran they will be in a “worse situation” should they restart their nuclear or missile programs.
