Iranians hold nationwide rallies to condemn US breach of contract


Iranians have taken to the streets across the country to vent their anger at the US over its withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear deal and President Donald Trump's incendiary rhetoric against Tehran, APA reports citing Press TV.

 

Protesters in Tehran and other cities on Friday carried placards which read, "Mr Trump, you are talking nonsense," echoing Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei's remarks on Wednesday.

 

They also chanted "Death to America", "Death to Israel" and "We fight, we die, but we do not accept any compromise."

 

The show of unity came following Trump’s pullout from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Tuesday, and his announcement that the US would reimpose nuclear sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

 

Only hours after Trump made the announcement, Iranian students and lawmakers took to the iconic Azadi Square in the capital Tehran, setting fire to US flags and shouting anti-US slogans.

 

Iranian lawmakers also set the Stars and Stripes ablaze inside the parliament and burnt symbolic copies of the nuclear agreement.
