“Death to America” Iranian politicians burn US flag in parliament after Trump withdraws from Nuclear deal


Iranian MPs were filmed burning a US flag and chanting “death to America” during a session of parliament, after Donald Trump announced he was pulling out of the country’s nuclear deal.

Iranian politicians held the impromptu protest inside parliament on Wednesday, the day after Trump announced his withdrawal and said he would impose new economic sanctions on Iran.

The Nuclear deal is a 2015 accord designed to ease international sanctions on Iran in exchange for a series of commitments to show the Middle East nation is not developing nuclear weapons.

To express their disapproval of Trump’s decision, the MPs also burned a piece of paper representing the nuclear deal.

Iran’s parliament speaker Ali Larijani was among those officials in Tehran who said the deal could still be saved. Ali Larijani told MPs the White House’s decision was a “diplomatic show” that would only serve to isolate the US.

Ali taunted the US President by saying: “Trump does not have the mental capacity to deal with issues.”

Also, today, European powers began redoubling their efforts to keep the Nuclear deal alive. The UK, France, Germany and the EU represent the majority of the seven signatories to the accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The others were China, the US, and Iran. France’s foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the deal is “not dead”, but that the US’s actions created a “real risk” of confrontation in the region.
