U.S. House of Representatives extends Iran Sanctions Act by 10 years • Any move by world powers to reintroduce sanctions is a violation of 2015 nuclear deal, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says • Move proves U.S. is not a reliable partner, Iranian analyst says.

"The agreement was supposed to change things and give Iran equal access to banks in order to facilitate trade. So obviously, it's not going to help, but the real harm, I think, is the breach in trust. And it shows that the United States is not a reliable partner," said Mohammad Maranadi, the Iranian political analyst.
In case the United States breaks the agreement, the Iranians will repeat the action too, noted Maranadi.
However, if the U.S. tries to keep the agreement only to misuse it, and the Iranians feel that the agreement has become ineffective, then they will start interpreting the agreement in a way in which the United States gets nothing out of it either, added the analyst.
"The Iranians can interpret the way in which the IAEA gains access [to] different [inspection] sites," he said, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
