“The ignorant, absurd, and hateful rhetoric, filled with ridiculously baseless allegations, that was uttered before this august body yesterday, was not only unfit to be heard at the United Nations, which was established to promote peace and respect between nations, but indeed contradicted the demands of our nations from this world body to bring governments together to combat war and terror.”
Rouhani was in a clear response to U.S. President Donald Trump's threat that Washington may pull out of the deal spearheaded by his predecessor Barack Obama.   
The deal was reached in July 2015 between Tehran and the six world powers of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.

"By violating its international commitments, the new American administration only destroys its own credibility and undermines international confidence in negotiating with it, or accepting its word or promise.”  
Rouhani dismissed the U.S.allegations and supported the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA as an international accord. 
According to the Iran nuclear deal, all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran will be removed if the country is proved to abide by the deal over the next few years.
