Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the US failed to disrupt the nuclear deal between Tehran and the leading powers, Reuters reports citing the state television channel.

US President Donald Trump asked the European countries that signed the agreement with Iran to remove the shortcomings of the deal, saying that otherwise the US will not participate in it any more.

“Despite repeated attempts, Trumpu failed to derail the agreement … This deal is a long-term victory for Iran,” Rouhani said.

Earlier Trump’s words were assessed in the Russian Foreign Ministry.
