Will Iran withdraw from NPT?

Will Iran withdraw from NPT?

Iran might withdraw from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons if the West uses force against it, General Mohammad Ali Jafari, who commands the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, has announced at a press-conference in Tehran.

He said that in case of an attack Iran would reconsider its commitments.

Nevertheless, this would not mean a U-turn to making a nuclear bomb, the general said, because it would be against the decree by Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Hamenei.

The decree forbids Iran to manufacture, store and use weapons of mass destruction.
