    Islamic Republic's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that there will be no nuclear deal on Iran's nuclear deal unless sanctions against Iran are lifted.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Iran nuclear deal will collapse unless sanctions against the country are completely removed, the Islamic Republic's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Thursday.

    "There will be no deal unless sanctions against Iran are lifted," Khamenei was quoted as saying by Press TV.

    The comments come as US members of Congress are preparing to vote on whether to accept the Iran nuclear agreement that the P5+1 group of countries reached with Tehran in mid-July.

    The agreement would ensure the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
