The deadline for a US preference on either to lift out is due in a week.

The agreement sealed between Iran, a US, China, Russia, Germany, France and Britain in 2015, carried crippling mercantile sanctions on Iran in lapse for curbs on a chief programme.

European allies France, a UK and Germany all determine a stream understanding is a best approach to stop Iran building chief weapons and a UN also warned Mr Trump not to travel divided from a deal.

But Mr Trump has threatened to repel unless a signatories determine to “fix a deal’s catastrophic flaws”.

In remarks carried live on Iranian state radio on Sunday, President Rouhani said: “If America leaves a chief deal, this will entail ancestral bewail for it.”

He warned Iran had “a devise to opposite any preference Trump might take and we will confront it”.

Iran insists a chief programme is wholly pacific and says it considers a understanding non-renegotiable.
