Iranians rally in support for countermeasures against US nuclear withdrawal

Iranians have held nationwide rallies expressing support for the decision of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) to suspend the implementation of some of Iran’s commitments under the JCPOA in response to the United States’ withdrawal from the deal.

The rallies took place after Friday prayers as people across the country marched and chanted slogans and held placards in support of the decision.

Demonstrators in Tehran finished the rallies by issuing a statement welcoming the decision and warning the US against any further provocation against the country.

The statement also called for a full suspension of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) if European signatories further failed to uphold the deal.

Iran has complained to Europe for its long-delayed implementation of a promised European financial mechanism designed to bypass US sanctions.

The demonstrations came after Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani announced a decision made by the SNSC on Wednesday.
