Earlier, Donald Trump announced from Washington that the United States was pulling out of the Iranian nuclear deal, signed in 2015 under Barack Obama, after 21 months of fierce negotiations between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (United States, China, Russia, France, United Kingdom), plus Germany.
Iran, for its part, said it would remain in this agreement, even without Washington. Tehran has also said it is open to dialogue with Europeans, Russians, and Chinese.
