Iran will continue to respect its nuclear agreement with world powers as long as its interests are preserved, President Hassan said on Tuesday in a speech in Switzerland.
       
"And as has been said before, as long as our interests are respected with regard to the nuclear deal and as long as we feel that we are able to reap the advantages of this nuclear deal, we will stay committed to this agreement."

"In my opinion, a certain American authority has said that the United States plans to reduce Iranian oil exports to zero. These are in fact, I would say, exaggerated, and could never be put in place."

"A scenario like this would mean that the United States is imposing a unilateral policy, is imposing rules that are extra-territorial, and would violate all international laws and regulations."

The United States withdrew in May from the 2015 agreement, under which world powers agreed to lift sanctions on Iran in return for curbs to its nuclear program. Iran has asked European countries to offer new economic measures to offset the impact of a return of U.S. sanctions.

Rouhani also said US attempts to pressure its allies to stop buying Iranian oil exports are "exaggerated" and could never be put in place.

Since its withdrawal from the nuclear accord, the US has been telling countries they must cut all imports of Iranian oil from November and Washington is unlikely to offer any exemptions, a senior State Department official said last Tuesday.
