Hossein Salami, the commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), says the Islamic Republic no longer needs an agreement with world powers on its nuclear deal, as efforts are underway to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, according to the semi-official Fars News agency.

“Today, we have come to a point that we have really grown needless of the nuclear deal and we have understood that we should prioritize efforts to become needless of sanctions removal rather than staying in need of the removal of embargos,” Salami reportedly says in Tehran.

“Our enemies had big dreams and (now) they have forgotten all of them altogether,” he adds. “Now they are watchful not to sustain heavier defeats at our hands.”
