U.S. President Donald Trump will regret it if he pulls out of the nuclear deal with Iran, President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday, warning Mr. Trump that Tehran's response would be stronger than he thinks.

The Republican president said they must agree to "fix the awful flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", which was agreed to under his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, or he would refuse to extend USA sanctions relief on Iran.

On Sunday, Salehi was quoted as saying that Tehran needs only four days to ramp up its uranium enrichment at the Fordow nuclear plant, if the USA withdraws from the deal.

He was speaking as Iran marked National Nuclear Technology Day and unveiled what it said were its latest nuclear achievements including centrifuges for the oil industry.

As a result, Syrian President Bashar Assad feels free to use chemical weapons on his people again and again, one official said, calling Assad's behavior "a finger in the eye of the Americans, and a reason for us to worry".

Volodin, for his part, said "the presidents of the two countries play a tremendous role in the development of bilateral relations of Russian Federation and Iran".

Fars News, which the Post described as being close to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, reported that at least four Iranian "military advisers" were killed in the strike.

Some foreign-exchange traders attributed the slide to "opportunistic speculation" among dealers who sought to exploit existing worries about Iran's broader economic health, its continued inability to access overseas financing and the fragility of the nuclear deal.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the country's conflict, said 14 fighters were killed, including Syrian army officers and Iranian forces.

Republican Senator Bob Corker said "significant progress" had been made on bipartisan congressional legislation to "address the flaws in the agreement without violating US commitments".

In January, Trump announced he is waiving the United States sanctions against Iran for the "last time".

Israeli defense officials believe the only power capable of curbing or blocking Iran's regional aspirations is the United States, but so far, Israel has had little success in its efforts to enlist the U.S.to take an active role in Syria.
