US President Donald Trump has tweeted that he will announce on Tuesday whether or not he has decided to pull the US out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

Trump said his decision will be revealed on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. at the White House, just days ahead of his May 12 deadline.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that pulling out of the deal would be “a historic regret” for the US. He stressed that the Iranian economy is strong and would be able to endure sanctions imposed by Washington.

Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed that classified documents obtained by the Mossad indicate that Tehran has consistently violated the agreement by continuing to develop its nuclear capabilities.
