“It is unlikely that the denunciation of the agreement on Iran's nuclear program will be a priority of the new US president. Mr. Trump, who has declared his readiness to talk Kim Jong-un out of possession of nuclear weapons, would more likely attempt to bargain with Tehran for more favorable terms and conditions. The problem is that neither President of Iran Hassan Rouhani, running for re-election in May 2017, nor the country’s Supreme Leader, confident that the deal was already tilted into US favor, would accept any further concessions”, – PIR Center “Russia and Nuclear Nonproliferation” Program Director Andrey Baklitskiy.
