Tehran: Iran said it will hold talks with signatories to a nuclear deal after US President Donald Trump’s decision Tuesday to withdraw from the accord, which it branded “psychological warfare”.

President Hassan Rouhani also said Iran could resume uranium enrichment “without limit” in response to Trump’s announcement.

He said he would discuss Iran’s response with the other parties to the 2015 deal — Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the European Union — before announcing a decision.

Speaking on state television, Rouhani described Trump’s decision as “an act of psychological warfare against Iran”.

“I have instructed the Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation to take the necessary measures for future actions so that if necessary we can resume industrial enrichment without limit,” he said.

“We will wait several weeks before applying this decision. We will speak with our friends and allies, the other members of the nuclear agreement.”

Rouhani said Iran had respected all its commitments under the nuclear agreement — as verified by international inspectors.
