U.S. President Donald Trump is not fit for his job, the speaker of Iran's Parliament said on Wednesday, in Tehran's most personal criticism since Trump's decision to withdraw from a 2015 nuclear pact between Tehran and six world powers.Trump pulled the United States out of the deal on Tuesday, raising the risk of conflict in the Middle East, upsetting European allies and casting uncertainty over global oil supplies.General Mohammad Baqeri, the chief of staff of Iran's military, said Iran did not have to sign the deal.President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday Iran would remain committed to the deal without Washington despite Trump's decision to withdraw from it. Trump said in a tougher-than-expected statement he would reimpose economic sanctions on Tehran immediately. His decision puts pressure on his European allies, which are key backers of the deal and are reluctant to join the United States in reimposing sanctions on Iran.Rouhani warned that Iran was ready to resume its curbed nuclear activities if Iran's interests were not guaranteed under a deal without the United States.
