Iranian legislators chanted ‘Death to America’ and burned the US flag on the floor of the Islamic Republic’s parliament Wednesday, just hours after President Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear agreement.
The spontaneous demonstrations broke-out as other Iranian officials urged European nations to remain within the treaty, but warned that Tehran can now “begin” its nuclear energy program “without any limitations.”
“If necessary, we can begin our industrial enrichment without any limitations,” the Iranian leader said. “Until implementation of this decision, we will wait for some weeks and will talk with our friends and allies and other signatories of the nuclear deal, who signed it and who will remain loyal to it. Everything depends on our national interests.”
The President announced his decision to withdraw from the Obama-era agreement Tuesday, warning Iran they will be in a “worse situation” should they restart their nuclear or missile programs.

RICE ADVICE: Condi Rice Says US Will be ‘JUST FINE’ if Trump Scraps Iran Deal
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice isn’t too concerned with President Trump’s possible withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear agreement; saying the United States will be “just fine” outside the international pact.
“The allies love this deal, and I certainly hope that in their meeting with President Trump that [French President Emmanuel] Macron and [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel talk about ways to improve the deal if we’re going to stay in it,” Rice told Fox News.
“But if we get out of this deal, it’s going to be just fine,” she said. “The Iranians, I think, will try and stay in because they do want that investment eventually to start flowing,” she added.
“I would probably have stayed in for alliance management purposes, but I have no argument,” said the former Bush official. “If the president decides to pull out of the deal, I have no argument with that.”
President Trump is expected to announce his decision within weeks, with European allies and Iran scrambling to put forth a possible “Plan B” should the US opt-out of the agreement.
BIBI’S BOMBSHELL: Israeli PM ‘HAS EVIDENCE’ Iran Violating Nuclear Deal
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed “dramatic” evidence Monday that the Iranian regime has been “lying” about its advanced nuclear weapons program; claiming the Islamic Republic was “hiding material” following the Obama-era agreement.
Netanyahu confirmed the revelation in a fiery press conference, adding that his government has received stunning new information in the previous “10 days” that the Iranian regime had relocated “half a ton” of covert files to a “secret location.”
“These files conclusively prove that Iran is brazenly lying when it says it never had a nuclear weapons program,” he said.
According to Fox News, Netanyahu briefed both President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over the weekend.
The new report raises serious questions over the future of the Iranian nuclear agreement, with President Trump expected to make his final decision over the international pact in the coming weeks.
