TEHRAN (Defapress)- "The plots hatched by the US, the Zionists and certain reactionary Arab regimes in the region will not affect our dear Iran's progress. Those who have sit in the White House should know that the government, on behalf of the great Iranian nation, will firmly and powerfully stand against them no matter they remain committed to their undertakings or not," President Rouhani said, addressing the Iranian people in the Northeastern city of Tabriz on Tuesday.
He stressed that Iran remains committed to its undertakings under the deal it has signed, but meantime warned, "But if anyone wants to betray our nation and our agreement, he/she should wait for its dire consequences."
President Rouhani underscored that Iran has planned for different scenarios against any possible enemy move.
His remarks came one day after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif welcomed French President Emmanuel Macron's statement that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) had no alternative to replace, reiterating that the nuclear deal was not liable to change.
"President Macron is correct in saying there's no Plan B on JCPOA. It's either all or nothing," Zarif wrote on his Twitter account.
The Iranian foreign minister underlined that the European leaders should encourage US President Donald Trump not just to stay in the nuclear deal, but more importantly to begin implementing his part of the bargain in good faith.
On Sunday, it was reported that President Macron was urging President Trump to stick with the Iranian nuclear accord, arguing there's no "Plan B."
Macron told the broadcast "Fox News Sunday" that he thinks that "the 2015 deal curbing Iran's nuclear ambitions is imperfect. But the French leader, who begins a state visit to Washington on Monday, asked, "What do you have as a better option?"
Trump has vowed to withdraw from the Iran deal by May 12 unless US and European negotiators agree to fix what he calls its serious flaws.
