TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran 's president is defending the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, saying not even 10 Donald Trumps can roll back its benefits to his country.

Hassan Rouhani's comments came as President Donald Trump appears to be stepping back from his campaign pledge to tear up the deal, instead aiming to take other measures against Iran and its affiliates.

State TV broadcast Rouhani while addressing students at Tehran University, marking the beginning of the educational year.

"We have achieved benefits that are irreversible. Nobody can roll them back, neither Trump, nor 10 other Trumps," he said.

Rouhani warned the U.S. not to violate the deal.

"If the United States violates (the nuclear deal), the entire world will condemn America, not Iran," he said.

Iran accepted curbs on its contested nuclear program as part of the agreement. In return, Iran has benefited from the lifting of sanctions against its oil exports among others.

Germany worries Trump will quit Iran nuclear deal

  Germany worries Trump will quit Iran nuclear deal German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Sunday that he feared US President Donald Trump would quit the Iran nuclear deal next week. Trump is a stern critic of the 2015 accord, which he has called "the worst deal ever", and US officials say he intends to tell US Congress next week that Tehran is not honouring its side of the bargain."The United States is likely to quit the Iran agreement next week -- that is my great concern," Gabriel was quoted as saying by national news agency DPA.

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran 's president is defending the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, saying not even 10 Donald Trumps can roll back its benefits to his country. Trump is expected to take new action against Iran 's Revolutionary Guard and the Iranian backed Shiite militant group Hezbollah.

Iran 's president is defending the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, saying not even 10 Donald Trumps can roll back its benefits to the Middle Eastern country. With decision looming, Trump blasts Iran over nuke deal .

Trump is expected to take new action against Iran's Revolutionary Guard and the Iranian backed Shiite militant group Hezbollah.

He is set to deliver a policy speech on Iran next week in which he is expected to decline to certify Iran's compliance in the landmark 2015 agreement that the U.S. and its partners signed with Tehran to rein in its nuclear program.

That would stop short of pulling out of the deal. Lawmakers say Trump isn't going to immediately announce new nuclear sanctions, which are prohibited by the deal, and instead will refer the matter to Congress.

President Trump has repeatedly described the deal as "bad." He signed a bill that imposes mandatory penalties on people involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them.

Rouhani is struggling to keep the deal on two fronts. One is with Trump, who always says it is a bad deal, and on the other side, hardliners inside the country.

By the time of his 2017 re-election, Rouhani increasingly criticized hard-liners within Iran who criticized him and the atomic deal for giving too much away to the West, especially the U.S., still the "Great Satan" for some even decades after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

If Iran deal blows up, "nobody else will trust" U.S., foreign minister warns .
"People cannot trust anymore the word of the United States," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in an interview with CBS News' Elizabeth PalmerZarif, who negotiated the deal on behalf of Iran, made the remarks in an interview with CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer after President Trump announced Friday he will not certify Iran's compliance with the 2015 agreement to Congress, but won't back out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached with Iran and other nations.
