Iran: “Grave consequences” if Trump bails on nuke deal

Tehran: Iran — Iran’s president reiterated his warning against a U.S. pullout from the landmark nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers as meetings between President Donald Trump France’s Emmanuel Macron got underway in Washington. Hassan Rouhani said the United States would face “grave” consequences if Washington decides to withdraw from the 2015 agreement that curbed Iran’s controversial nuclear enrichment program in exchange for lifting international sanctions on the Mideast nation.
“If someone wants to betray our nation and the deal, grave consequences will affect them,” Rouhani told supporters in the city of Tabriz during a visit to the area. State TV broadcast the speech.
The Iranian nation and government will “strongly resist” any plots by those who sit in the White House, he added .
