Iran threatens to quit nuclear deal

Iran President Hassan Rouhani has threatened to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal if the US continues to impose new sanctions, Deutsche Welle reports.

Iran’s Hassan Rouhani cast doubt over the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement, threatening to walk away from the deal and restart the country nuclear program if the US continued to impose new sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Rouhani warned that Iran could go nuclear again “in an hour and a day” if the US refused to cease its “threats and sanctions.” Rouhani admitted that he would prefer to stick to the nuclear agreement, but warned that this was not the “only option.”

The Iranian leader was re-elected in May, in what many viewed as a referendum on his more open, progressive policies and, ultimately, on the nuclear deal itself.
