Iran will continue its negotiations with the remaining parties to the 2015 nuclear deal, but is pursuing plans based on the presumption that the talks will not produce the desired outcome, President Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday. 
"If they do not fulfill their commitments, we have multiple solutions … and we can defend our economy," he said, addressing a meeting of East Azarbaijan Province's Administrative Council, reported. 
Since the United States pulled out of the nuclear deal last year and reimposed sanctions on Tehran, Iran has been engaged in extensive talks with the remaining signatories, mainly Europe, to receive some guarantees for its interests under the agreement, formally called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
Their efforts, however, have been fruitless so far in addressing Iran's core economic concerns, including its oil export and banking relations.
