[Ed. – Hardball with the weak sisters of the “Iran containment” policy. This threat isn’t to withdraw from the “Iran deal,” or JCPOA, from 2015, an instrument of dubious nature and status.

Iran warned Monday it will withdraw from the global nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) if Germany, France and Britain refer their dispute over the Iran nuclear deal to the U.N. Security Council.
“If the Europeans continue their improper behavior or send Iran’s file to the Security Council, we will withdraw from the NPT,” the IRNA state news agency quoted Foreign Minister Javad Zarif as saying.
Iran’s parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani warned Sunday that the European countries that any “unfair” actions could prompt the regime to cease cooperation with the IAEA.
