Leder av Revolusjonsgarden i Iran, general Mohammad Ali Jafari, har ingen tro på at EU vil klare å handle på egen hånd og redde atomavtalen. De er helt avhengig av USA, ifølge ham.

“It’s clear that the Europeans can not make an independent decision between Iran and America and are tied to America,” he said, according to a report on Fars News. “The fate of the Iran deal is clear.”

Henvisningen til anriking av uran er bare et påskudd for å si opp avtalen, sa Jafari. Den virkelige grunnen er Irans rakettprogram og regionale innflytelse.

Jafari said the withdrawal of the United States showed that the issue of Iran’s uranium enrichment had just been an excuse to try and limit the Islamic Republic’s missile program and regional influence, Fars News reported.

“With attention to the fact that the issue of the enemy is our military capabilities, the armed forces must pay closer attention to expanding their capabilities,” Jafari said.
