Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Monday that the U.S. would pay a high price for ending the nuclear deal with his country.
"Exiting such an agreement would carry a high cost for the United States of America, and I do not believe Americans would be willing to pay such a high cost for something that will be useless for them," Rouhani told CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
He added that doing so "will yield no results for the United States, but at the same time it will generally decrease and cut away and chip away at international trust placed in the United States of America."
The full interview will air on CNN International's "Amanpour" Monday at 2 p.m. ET.
President Donald Trump described the agreement, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, earlier this week as "one of the worst deals I've ever seen," which "should have never ever been made," and promised "very evident" action on the agreement in October, according to CNN.
