A senior Iranian official accuses US President Joe Biden of illegally threatening the country.
The move comes after Joe Biden said in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett that he would consider “other options” if negotiations with Iran on a new nuclear deal failed.
“Emphasizing the use of ‘other alternatives’ against Iran means threatening another country illegally,” Ali Shamkhani, the head of Iran’s National Security Council, wrote on Twitter after Biden’s statement.
According to a report by the United Nations Atomic Energy Agency, Iran has ramped up uranium enrichment, while the United States and Iran are working to resume negotiations on a new nuclear energy agreement.
US-Iranian negotiations in Vienna have been suspended since June 20. On Saturday, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei compared the Biden government’s stance on the nuclear deal with former President Donald Trump, who withdrew from the 2018 accord.
According to Iranian official media, Khamenei said, “The current US administration is no different from the previous administration, because it demands what Trump has demanded of Iran in the field of nuclear energy.
According to the nuclear energy agreement, which the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany concluded with Iran in 2015, Iran will receive old uranium with a purity of only 3.67 percent. The agreement was breached by former US President Donald Trump, who imposed new sanctions on Iran.
