Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has urged the foreign countries to withdraw their forces from the Middle East, warning them of danger if they stay in the region.

In a TV interview, he said the American soldiers who are in the middle east, are in danger today, and which ever foreign country commits such misadventure in the future will face the same situation.

Hassan Rouhani's comments came a day after the UK, France and Germany challenged Tehran over breaking limits of a major nuclear deal signed in 2015 between Iran and six world powers.

Meanwhile, in a Tweet, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has accused three European states Britain, France and Germany for supporting the US President Donald Trump over nuclear pact.

He said three European states had succumbed to “high school bully” Donald Trump when they triggered a dispute mechanism in a nuclear pact the U.S. president opposes, a step that could eventually lead to re-imposing U.N. sanctions.

However, the Washington Post reported that United States President had threatened to impose a twenty five percent tariff on European automobile imports if Britain, France and Germany did not formally accuse Iran of breaking the nuclear deal.
