The Iranian president has warned the US that it will regret pulling out from the milestone 2015 nuclear deal and will see the consequences “in less than one week,” should it go ahead with the much-discussed withdrawal.
"Iran will not violate the nuclear deal, but if the United States withdraws from the deal, they will surely regret it,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday, during a ceremony marking the 12th anniversary of the National Day of Nuclear Technology. He added Tehran’s response “will be stronger than what they imagine and they would see that within a week.”
US President Donald Trump “has big claims and many ups and downs in his words and actions [and] has been trying for 15 months to break the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action],” Rouhani said, adding the landmark pact “is so strong that it has not been shaken by such quakes.”
Sinking the deal would damage America’s international reputation, while Iran would emerge in the global public opinion as a responsible and cooperative actor, the Iranian president said. “If they withdraw, it would mean that they are not committed to their words,” he added.
