DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani urged the United States on Wednesday to end its policy of “maximum pressure” on his country, and said Tehran would cut its commitments to a 2015 nuclear deal further if necessary, state TV reported.
“The United States should understand that militancy has no profit and must abandon its policy of maximum pressure on Iran … Iran’s commitments to the nuclear deal is proportional to other parties and we will take further steps if necessary,” Rouhani was quoted as saying.
