"The enemies should know that in case of a JCPOA rollback - even though we are never looking for such a situation - special conditions will arise, and when the high ranking officials decide, there will be a special surprise for those who scuttle the agreement," Ali Akbar Salehi pointed out.

"We are seriously looking to preserve our national interests and sovereignty, but if the United States withdraws and Europe and other great powers retreat from this agreement, we will definitely do something different," he added.

Salehi described US President Donald Trump as a businessman who has mixed trade with politics, trying to advance his agendas in the international arena with his unpredictable decisions.

Trump has been a vociferous critic of the Iran nuclear deal which was signed between Tehran and six world powers in 2015. He has called the JCPOA the “worst deal ever” and even threatened to tear it up.
