President Hassan Rouhani told his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in a telephone conversation on Sunday that Tehran has a variety of plans in mind in response to the possible US President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
In the phone call that lasted more than an hour, Rouhani reminded Macron of Washington's constant moves to undermine the deal, saying that "Iran has currently made critical decisions regarding banking ties, foreign exchange and other economy-related issues, with various plans devised in the face of any possible May 12 outcome," his official website reported.
This comes as the May 12 deadline looms for Trump to decide on whether to restore US economic sanctions on Tehran–something which could destroy the agreement which lifted some sanctions in exchange for curbs on Iran's nuclear program.
The president reiterated the significance of the accord to "building trust" among nations involved, "maintaining regional security" and "expanding international cooperation."
