Iranian President Hassan Rohani said on Wednesday U.S. President Donald Trump made a stupid mistake by pulling out of Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers, and called on Washington to lift its sanctions.

Trump pulled the United States out of the pact in 2018, arguing it did not go far enough to constrain Tehran’s missile program and influence in the region.

“Trump made a stupid mistake by exiting the nuclear deal,” Rohani said.

“If America wants to return to the deal, it should lift all the sanctions on Tehran and compensate for the reimposition of sanctions … Iran will give a crushing response if the arms embargo on Tehran is extended,” Rohani added.
