Trump would regret abandoning nuclear deal, warns Iran

He made the comments at a "National Atomic Energy Day" event, where he unveiled the latest in nuclear technological developments, including developing centrifuges, separation and nuclear medicine.

"We will not be the first to violate the accord, but they should definitely know that they will regret it if they violate it", Rouhani said in a conference in Tehran marking National Nuclear Technology Day.

The rial had fallen to 47,000 to a dollar in early February from about 36,000 in mid-September on concerns about Iran's agreement with world powers to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of most global sanctions.

"However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable".

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is based in the United Kingdom, said that 14 people, mostly from Iran's military or its proxy forces, were killed in the airstrikes.

The news agency, which is close to the country's Revolutionary Guards, had earlier reported that three Iranians had been killed.

Iran took the drastic step of fixing the rate of its currency against the dollar on Tuesday in a bid to arrest a slide that has seen it fall by a third in six months. But it is still allowed to develop nuclear technology for civilian purposes, including energy production and scientific research. Fordow is a facility south of the holy city of Qom.

On Monday, Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman of the nuclear agency, said Salehi wanted to clarify that enrichment could be done within "two days".

The 20 percent figure is significant, because it is more than enough to quickly reach the threshold for a nuclear weapon.

Some foreign-exchange traders attributed the slide to "opportunistic speculation" among dealers who sought to exploit existing worries about Iran's broader economic health, its continued inability to access overseas financing and the fragility of the nuclear deal.

"The other side is seeing this American weakness loud and clear and, it is enhanced further by the Russians' embrace, giving these negative forces, led by Iran, a lot of confidence", an Israeli official said. We need soft power.

In January, Trump announced he is waiving the USA sanctions against Iran for the "last time". The deadline falls on May 12.
