Republican US presidential candidate Marco Rubio vowed to revoke the Iran deal should he be the next one to occupy the Oval Office.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio said that he would cancel a nuclear deal signed with Iran if he won the 2016 presidential election.

"When I am president of the United States, on my first day in office, we are canceling the deal with Iran," Rubio said during Republican presidential candidate debates on Thursday.

In July, Iran and the P5+1 group, comprising Russia, the United States, China, the United Kingdom, France and Germany, signed a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) ensuring the safe nature of Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions imposed on it.

On January 16, the International Atomic Energy Agency verified Tehran’s compliance with the JCPOA, opening the way for Iran's return to the global oil market. The same day, the United States and the European Union announced that they were lifting their sanctions against Iran.

World has entered a new era as much as yanks like to see its still the old wild west and were still doing the shooting! so lets keep it rolling! Rubio has just shown Americans want a useless piece of s..t he is. How do you sink so low.

    Good thing this corrupt Zionist stooge is not going to last much longer in the race for presidency.

    His Zionist handlers will realize he is a loser and move on to a candidate with more of a chance.

    As for the nuclear deal with Iran, or sanctions, this dumbass should know it is too late to turn back the clock. Sanctions are history.

    Iran is signing lucrative deals with so many countries, with safeguard clause, that sanctions will only hurt the dumb Americans. Which is the exact reason Iran has not signed any substantial business deals with Americans.

    As the cradle of civilization and the inventors of Chess Iranians are playing a strategic game which the Americans and their feral Israeli handlers are to stupid to understand or counter.

    Rubio ... hello Iran has their money back.
  • Rubio and McCain in a brinkmanship contest?

    What if the US unilaterally "cancel" the UN brokered and backed deal? The rest of the world will ignore the US leaving it the laughing stock of the world. Iran is rushing to make so many big financial deals with the EU precisely to make it too costly for the EU to yield to US sanctions pressure. You will also recall that Iran is deliberately avoiding any entanglement with US businesses and the US financial system

    They will say and promise anything to get elected. Soulless and weak individuals.

    The lips are moving, but there is nothing coming out worth listening to. The nuclear deal was also brokered with the help of 4 other countries. Rubidiot dose not speak for them, or the UN.
