President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday he would not let U.S. President-elect Donald Trump rip up a global nuclear deal, warning of unspecified repercussions if Washington reneges on the agreement.Analysts have said Trump's comments could signal a harder U.S. line on Iran, a development that could in turn empower hard-liners in Iran's political scene, including rivals of the president.Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned against any changes to the nuclear deal after Trump's comments in June, and said last month that an extension of a U.S. sanction regime would be viewed as a violation of the accord.Rouhani echoed Khamenei's comments on the U.S. Congress decision last month to pass legislation to extend the Iran sanctions Act (ISA) for 10 years to make it easier for Washington to reimpose sanctions if Tehran contravenes the nuclear deal.
