Iran will remain in the 2015 nuclear deal only if its interests are ensured by other signatories after the United States withdrew from the accord, President Hassan Rouhani told a news conference on Wednesday.
Rouhani said the US withdrawal is “illegal”. 
Elaborating the point, the president said, “Neither the United States nor any other country will benefit from the decision to withdraw from the agreement.” He was addressing reporters after meeting Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen.
"If the other signatory states can guarantee Iran's interests, we will continue with the JCPOA without the US," he said.
