After this, while at a press conference Boroujerdi gave indications of future plans. He made a reference that since Donald Trump has become the President of US, things are changing. Trump had declared that he would scrap the nuclear deal made by the Obama Government with Iran when he assumes the office of the President. If US scraps the deal, then Iran will move ahead with its nuclear project, he said.
Israel, too had taken a stand that under no circumstances will it allow Iran to be a nuclear power and will not hesitate to attack Iran. Hence considering all the possibilities, Iran has started making moves after President Trump came to power.
