Iran rules out possibility of re-negotiation over nuclear deal with Trump administration

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has ruled out the possibility of re-negotiation on Iran’s nuclear deal.

The Iranian president while addressing a press conference to mark one year of the deal dismissed US President-elect Donald Trump’s criticism of the nuclear deal.

Trump has described the agreement – implemented a year ago – as “the worst deal ever” and threatened to scrap it.

Rouhani said the comments were just “slogans” and that there was no chance of any renegotiation.

Under the deal, Iran agreed to curb its sensitive nuclear activities in return for the lifting of economic sanctions.

Outgoing US President Barack Obama says the deal will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
