US cannot undermine Iran nuclear deal: Rouhani

US cannot undermine Iran nuclear deal: Rouhani
From Al Jazeera - January 13, 2018

The United States has failed to undermine the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a statement broadcast on state television.

His comments on Sunday came just days after US President Donald Trump threatened to withdraw from the deal if its "disastrous flaws" were not fixed.

"The American administration has failed to undermine the nuclear deal ... Trump, despite his repeated efforts, has failed to undermine the accord," Rouhani said in his speech, according to a report from the Reuters news agency.

The Iranian president further hailed the deal as "a long-lasting victory for Iran".

On Friday, the White House said that Trump would waive sanctions against Iran to keep the deal alive, but it would be the "last time" unless the US and Europe reach an agreement in the next 120 days to strengthen the landmark agreement.
