Iran's president, Hassan Rouhani, has dismissed the idea of a new "Trump deal" to resolve the nuclear row.
Calling the suggestion -- by Britain's prime minister -- a "strange offer" on Wednesday (January 15).
And advocating instead a return to the nuclear deal signed in 2015, which is now in jeopardy.
(SOUNDBITE) (Farsi) IRANIAN PRESIDENT HASSAN ROUHANI, SAYING: "If you take the wrong step, it will be to your detriment.
Pick the right path.
The right path is to return to the nuclear deal." Donald Trump agreed with Britain's Boris Johnson late Tuesday that a "Trump deal" should take its place.
Rouhani accused the U.S. president of always breaking his promises.
Trump pulled the United States out of the deal in 2018, saying it wasn't tough enough.
Brokered by the European Union, that pact lifted international sanctions in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear program, which it insists is peaceful.
Since withdrawing, Trump has ramped up sanctions that are throttling Iran's economy.
In response, Tehran has gradually reduced its compliance, saying it wants to stick to the deal but has little incentive without seeing any economic benefits.
In January, Iran said it would scrap all limits on enriching uranium, its biggest step away from the agreement yet.
Britain, France, and Germany reacted this week by triggering a mechanism that put the pact in dispute and formally accused Tehran of violating the terms. Rouhani called that step, which could lead U.N.
Sanctions to be reimposed down the line, a "strategic mistake."
U.S. President Donald Trump weighed in on former U.S. President Barack Obama at a campaign rally in North Carolina Wednesday (October 21) saying Obama had underestimated him as he recalled his victory over Hillary Clinton saying, "I think the only one, the only one more unhappy than crooked Hillary that night was Barack Hussein Obama, Barack Hussein Obama."
The United States on Monday will sanction more than two dozen people and entities involved in Iran's nuclear, missile and conventional arms programs, a senior U.S. official said, putting teeth behind U.N. sanctions on Tehran that Washington argues have resumed despite the opposition of allies and adversaries.
