>> Iran says US President, Donald Trump, can't bring down its nuclear deal. It's been two years since the nuclear deal. How many times have the Americans attempted to scrap the deal? How many times? How many times within the past year have they tried, and haven't succeeded to this day.

In my opinion, they won't be able to do it at all.>> Speaking on television, President Hassan Rouhani insisted that the deal would survive. In October, Trump declined to certify that Iran was complying with the agreement it reached with the US and other powers in 2015. That decision triggered a 60 day window for the US Congress to decide whether to reimpose sanctions.

Iran has said it will stick to that accord as long as the other signatories respect it.
