TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Wednesday dismissed rumors that the ministry is getting ready to pull out of the 2015 nuclear deal, officially called the JCPOA, saying such rumors are designed to negatively impact the Iranian economy.

“These rumors are certainly false, baseless and purposeful,” Qassemi said in a statement, the Foreign Ministry website reported.

“They are created by certain domestic and foreign circles with destructive intentions and are aimed at making people worried, creating baseless tensions and negatively impacting the economy and people’s livelihood,” he explained.
