It’s up to Europe to save nuclear deal after ‘illegal’ US withdrawal – Iran’s Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday the US withdrawal from a nuclear deal was “illegal,” adding that it was up to Europe to preserve the landmark accord with Tehran, Reuters said. “After the US illegal withdrawal from the nuclear deal, the ball is in Europe’s court now,” Rouhani was quoted as saying by his official website in a meeting with British Ambassador to Tehran Rob Macaire. “The Islamic Republic has never sought tension in the region and does not want any trouble in global waterways, but it will not easily give up on its rights to export oil,” Rouhani said.
