Tehran accuses Israel of strike that killed 4 Iranians in Syria

The foundation of the nuclear deal has been such strong that, despite the US' pressure during the last months, it is firm yet, Rouhani said.

Rouhani was speaking as Tehran marked National Nuclear Technology Day and unveiled what it said were its latest nuclear achievements including a nuclear battery and centrifuges for the oil industry.

The rial had fallen to 47,000 to a dollar in early February from about 36,000 in mid-September on concerns about Iran's agreement with world powers to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of most worldwide sanctions.

Jahangiri made the announcement on Monday night following an emergency meeting of the government's economic taskforce headed by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

"However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable".

In early March, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif forewarned on state television: "If the United States makes the mistake of pulling out of the JCPOA, it will definitely be a painful mistake for the Americans".

While Trump approved the sanctions waiver, the Treasury Department announced new, targeted sanctions against 14 entities and people, including the head of Iran's judiciary, Sadeq Larijani, a close ally of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.

In 2017, Iranian atomic official Behrouz Kamalvandi said that Iran's nuclear programme could "soar" if they wanted it to, which would probably invite the revamp of the Arak heavy water facility.

Tehran accused Israel on Monday of "flagrant" aggression in Syria after an air strike hit a regime base killing four Iranian "military advisers", Iranian media said. Rouhani underlined that Iran will never seek anyone's permission for nuclear research, but it is ready for constructive cooperation. He said, if his demands are not met within 120 days, the U.S. will withdraw from the deal.

Other partners in the nuclear agreement include Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the EU.

The other parties to the agreement would have been unlikely to join the United States in reimposing sanctions.
