In 2015, Iran and a group of world powers agreed to substantially curb Tehran's nuclear development in return for lifting economic sanctions.

President Hassan Rouhani warned on Monday that Trump will regret it if he pulls out of the nuclear deal.

"The new U.S. President. has been trying for 15 months to break the JCPOA. but the structure of the JCPOA is so strong that it has not been shaken by such quakes", he said.

United States sanctions that were lifted under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) of 2015 will resume unless Trump waives them again on May 12.

The government will sell the USA dollar at a rate of 42,000 rials to all individuals and businesses, Iran's First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri said in a statement recorded for state TV and published on its website, adding that enemies of the Islamic Republic and of the government were behind the instability.
