Iran's Rouhani says US will regret if it scraps n

The United States would regret violating the nuclear deal, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday, adding that Iran would respond in "less than a week" should that happen.

President Trump has always been critical of the Obama-era agreement, calling it an "embarrassment" and "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into".

"The onus of responsibility lies in Iran and we're going to continue to highlight the risks of doing business there because they haven't taken the actions that they have promised they would take", she said.

In a statement on January 12, U.S. President Donald Trump gave Europeans only 120 days to agree to an overhaul of the nuclear agreement. Iran insists its efforts have been for research and technology, and that its missiles are purely defensive.

Tehran and Moscow are completely unanimous in many regional fields, he said, adding, "It is understandable for us that some Western countries are annoyed with Russian Federation and are trying to make problems for this great power in the region and the world".

Without mentioning the U.S., he said other parties to the deal are "instigating Iran" to break its commitment to the agreement.

Rouhani was speaking as Tehran marked National Nuclear Technology Day.

It was not the first time Iran has suggested that pulling out of the deal would be a grave mistake for the U.S.

"It seems the USA government is looking for an excuse for military intervention", Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said has he arrived in Brazil early on Tuesday, according to state media.

The other partners to the agreement - Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the European Union - all agree that Iran has stuck by its commitments, as does the International Atomic Energy Association which is tasked with inspecting Iran's compliance. However, some analysts have suggested that the nuclear agreement would likely collapse altogether if the USA decides to pull out.
