Iranian MPs burned US flag protesting nuke deal exit
Several hardline members of the Iranian parliament burned a paper US flag along with a paper piece symbolizing the JCPOA deal, reacting to Donald Trump’s announcement that the US is pulling out of the 2015 nuclear agreement, Sputnik reported.
They supported their display with shouts of “Death to America” as they held the flaming paper flags above their heads.
Parliament speaker Ali Larijani called Trump an “egotistical and amateurish politician,” for exiting the deal, according to Mehr News Agency.
“Trump doesn’t have the mental capacity to deal with issues,” Larijani said, according to Reuters.
He also rhetorically asked “Aren’t such idiotic measures so shameful for a country with a claim to global management that even its allies are trying to stop him from taking them and control him?”
