The United States' unilateral withdrawal from an international agreement over Iran's nuclear program was a "violation of morals" but Tehran will continue to honor the deal only if its interests can be protected by the other parties, President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday. 
"The Islamic Republic of Iran has remained committed to every agreement it has signed. But we saw that the United States walked away from the JCPOA, which means trampling on moral, political, diplomatic and international laws and principles," Rouhani said during a press conference with the visiting Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena in Tehran, ISNA reported. 
The pact is formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
