The president of Iran said Wednesday the state of the controversial agreement made over its nuclear program moving forward depends on what happens in November.

During an interview at the United Nations, President Hassan Rouhani told Chuck Todd on "MTP Daily"  the Iran nuclear deal — officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — is a legal and valid international agreement.

"All of the administrations and the United States are united in having reached this agreement," Rouhani said through a translator. "No one can say here or there, 'I don't accept this agreement. I want to renegotiate it.' This has purely an electoral effect for some."

When asked if he feels Iran will have a working relationship with America's next president, Rouhani said that all depends.

"If the future administration of the United States wishes to continue animosity, it will receive the appropriate response," he said.

"But if it wishes to bring an end to that animosity and start respecting the right of the Iranian nation where it has trampled upon the rights in many instances in the past, of course it will receive the appropriate response in that scenario as well."

The agreement made over Iran's nuclear program has been rife with controversy. A report three weeks ago claimed there were "secret" exemptions built into the deal that give Iran the ability to evade some restrictions.
