Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has labelled Donald Trump a “rogue newcomer” in international politics, attacking the US leader's “ignorant and absurd” rhetoric for suggesting the nuclear deal with Tehran could be ripped up.
During his address to the United Nations General Assembly, Mr Rouhani said that if the US decides to scrap the deal negotiated by the Obama administration, the nation would only demolish its own credibility.
“It will be a great pity if this agreement were to be destroyed by rogue newcomers to the world of politics,” Mr Rouhani said. “By violating its international commitments, the new US administration only destroys its own credibility and undermines international confidence in negotiating with it or accepting its word or promise.”
