Rouhani warns US of serious repercussions if Washington walks out on Iran Nuke deal
Sept 19, Tehran: The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned Washington against walking out of the Iran nuclear deal, he apparently told CNN that the exit touted by Donald Trump would taint the US’s reputation as a reliable partner and quickly be followed by repercussions.
The Iranian leader in the interview with the news channel ahead of the annual session of the UN General Assembly on Monday, warned the US that quitting the deal would “yield no results for the United States but at the same time it will generally decrease and cut away and chip away at international trust placed in the United States of America.” “I do not believe Americans would be willing to pay such a high cost for something that will be useless for them,” he said.
The Americans will find it difficult to persuade other countries such as North Korea that it is worth negotiating with them if they scrap the deal unilaterally, Rouhani argued. “Why would the North Koreans waste their time to sit around the table of dialogue with the United States, because they would think perhaps after years of talks and a potential agreement the next US administration could step over or pull out of the agreement,” Rouhani said.
