Rouhani says Iran would rejoin nuclear deal within an hour if US does

According to a new report from the Guardian, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he would return to complying to the terms of the Iran nuclear deal “within an hour of the US doing so.”

President Trump withdrew from the Obama-era Iran deal in 2018.

Rouhani’s comments come on the same day Iran faced pressure from the Trump administration after two Iranian officials were sanctioned over their alleged involvement in the abduction of former FBI agent Robert Levinson.

Mike Pompeo, said in a statement “Senior Iranian officials authorized Levinson’s abduction and detention and launched a disinformation campaign to deflect blame from the regime.”

Biden has said he would quickly restore the Iran deal, according to the Washington Post.
