US withdrawal from Iran’s nuclear deal ‘a defeat and a great loss’ for Washington — Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned on Wednesday that a possible US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal would be a defeat and a great loss for Washington. Rouhani said the US would tarnish its very own reputation in the world by walking out of the landmark agreement.

He said even the US allies in Europe are against undermining the accord.

The Iranian president noted one can count the number of countries and regimes standing by Washington in this regard on the fingers of one hand.

Rouhnai said it’s a shame that US President Donald Trump publicly announces he opposes anything done under his predecessor Barack Obama.

The comments come as Trump is expected to decertify the Iran nuclear deal by mid-October.
