(AFP) - Iranian President Hassan Rowhani described US President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal as "the worst choice for America".
"The White House believed that Iran would come out of the nuclear agreement on the second day of their withdrawal from the agreement to return our file to the Security Council again and impose sanctions on Tehran again," Rowhani said at the forum of Iran's judiciary.
"Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal was the worst choice for America. His position only supported a number of small countries," he said. "What Iran has done has forced America to pay a heavy price for this move."
The Iranian president stressed that Tehran today enjoys strong political conditions in the world as America tries to frustrate and resist the Iranian people in some way.
He stressed that "the Iranians will not bow to American pressure and will defend their independence and Islamic values," noting that Trump's step in relation to the nuclear agreement is "shocking and illegal and damaged the reputation of the United States in the world."
