Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian threatened the world with Iran's withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). This is because he is not satisfied with the policy of the European Parliament.
Thus, according to an Iranian official, his country may withdraw from the Treaty in response to the recent initiative of the European Parliament. In particular, it proposes to add the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to the list of terrorist organizations.
Which initiative does not suit Iran
As Anadolu noted with reference to ISNA, on January 19, the European Parliament adopted a resolution including demands on the European Union:
However, this resolution is not binding. Moreover, according to Abdollahian, Josep Borrell recently stressed to him during a telephone conversation that the European Parliament did not seek to implement the decision. It was only an expression of the emotional approach of a number of representatives of the legislature.
The threat of Iran
Hossein Amir Abdollahian answered the question about the possibility of Iran withdrawing from the NPT or withdrawal of IAEA observers from the country. He stressed that if the EU authorities “do not take a reasonable course and do not correct their political views, then Iran will consider all options.”
Some European diplomats, such as the foreign minister Germany, they work, although they do not have sufficient experience. If they do not take a reasonable course and correct their political views, Iran will consider all options, he said.
Note. that 16 years ago, in 2007, Iran also threatened to renegotiate its membership in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Then the authorities of the country did not like that they could be prevented from implementing the nuclear program.
