Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says US to face historic regret if nuclear deal ends

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that the United States will face historic regret if it pulls out of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and Western powers.

In an address on state TV today, he said, Iran has plans in place to confront any decision by US President Donald Trump, who said he would withdraw from the nuclear agreement. Mr Rouhani said, necessary directives have been given to related organisations and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran to proceed in case of withdrawal.

Mr Trump has repeatedly threatened to end the deal. In January, he announced he is waiving the US sanctions against Iran for the last time. He said, if his demands are not met within 120 days, the US will withdraw from the deal.

The deadline is on May 12, although he hinted that the US could cut loose before that date if he sees no progress in negotiations.
