Rouhani says Trump misjudged Iran by expecting it to leave nuclear deal: ISNA

Reuters– President Donald Trump expected Tehran to leave the nuclear deal after the U.S. withdrawal, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday.

Tehran had refused to follow that plan by trying to save the deal with its remaining signatories, he said.

“Trump played his first card, but miscalculated the second move… as Iran did not follow that plan,” Rouhani was quoted as saying by the ISNA agency.
