Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says his country would be willing to remain in the nuclear deal even if the United States pulls out, providing the European Union offers guarantees that Tehran would keep benefiting from the accord.

Rouhani’s remarks came ahead of President Donald Trump’s decision expected later this week on whether to pull America out of the landmark deal between Iran and world powers. Rouhani speaks during a meeting with officials in the northeastern city of Mashhad.

He says a US pullout would be a “strategic mistake.”

He says that “what we want for the deal is that it’s preserved and guaranteed by the non-Americans” — a reference to other signatories of the 2015 agreement.

He adds that in this case “the US pullout will be OK.”
