Deputy FM says Iran ‘fully prepared’ for US nuclear deal exit

Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi tells state media that Iran is “fully prepared” for any scenario, as US President Donald Trump’s deadline to re-impose sanctions on the Islamic republic quickly approaches.

“Iran [is] fully prepared for any US scenario on the 2015 nuclear deal,” he tells the ISNA news agency.

Trump is due to decide by May 12 whether to reimpose nuclear-related sanctions on Tehran, putting in peril the 2015 accord, which most world powers see as key to preventing Tehran from getting the bomb.
