TEHRAN: Iran's President Hassan Rouhani Saturday said fresh US sanctions imposed on organizations linked to Tehran's nuclear program had "further deepened" mistrust that exists between the long-time foes.

"This is not compatible with the atmosphere of the negotiations," Rouhani told reporters in Tehran. "It goes against confidence building measures. Mistrust has further deepened."
