One day before the one-year anniversary of the nuclear deal with Iran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has made clear his nation's plans not to follow the agreement if it does not want to. Arutz Sheva's Ben Ariel writes that Rouhani has threatened to restore Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons if the world does not meet its demands:

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday threatened that the Islamic Republic could restore elements of its nuclear program that were halted under the deal with the West, if world powers that backed the agreement don't live up to their end of the bargain.

Rouhani made the remarks televised on state TV and was quoted by The Associated Press.

The comments came a day ahead of the one-year anniversary of the deal between Tehran and the United States and other world powers. The agreement called for caps on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

Rouhani hailed the nuclear deal as widely beneficial, saying it promotes peace and stability and that violating it "will harm everyone."

But he also assured Iranians that Iran is "completely ready" and able to restore its nuclear program quickly if other parties violate the deal.
