Politicians in Iran have set a U.S. flag ablaze and chanted “Death to America” after Donald Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal.
The lawmakers also torched a symbolic copy of the Iran deal before vowing to increase spending on the country’s ballistic missile program.
The furious demonstration in the Iranian parliament reflected broad public anger in the country after Mr. Trump called the deal a “horrible, one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made.”
Parliament speaker Ali Larijani said Iran could return to its nuclear program, but would hold off at first on withdrawing from the nuclear pact.
“With a national consensus, we will give the U.S. and Zionists a response that they will regret,” he said, according to the semi-official Mehr news agency.
