Rouhani was speaking as Tehran marked National Nuclear Technology Day and unveiled what it said were its latest nuclear achievements including a nuclear battery and centrifuges for the oil industry.

He added Iran will respond within a week if the United States withdraws from the deal and that Washington will surely regret it.

As President Donald Trump considers whether or not to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal ahead of a May deadline, leaders in Tehran are threatening to restart the country's nuclear enrichment program in just a matter of days, The Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday.

Rouhani, for his part, warned the USA against the possible consequences of such a move, saying Tehran's response to such a scenario would be "stronger than can be imagined".

"We are much more prepared than they think, and they will see that if they violate this accord, within a week, less than a week, they will see the result".

Since his election in late 2016, however, Trump has repeatedly threatened to withdraw from the deal over the objections of European Union member states.

"(But) the foundations of the JCPOA (nuclear deal) have been so strong that during these 15 months of pressure. the structure has remained solid".

Some foreign-exchange traders attributed the slide to "opportunistic speculation" among dealers who sought to exploit existing worries about Iran's broader economic health, its continued inability to access overseas financing and the fragility of the nuclear deal. U.S. sanctions will resume unless Trump issues new "waivers" to suspend them on May 12. Iran insists its efforts have been for research and technology, and that its missiles are purely defensive.

A blog published on Thursday by Nick Biasini, a threat researcher at Cisco's Talos Security Intelligence and Research Group, said: "Several incidents in multiple countries, including some specifically targeting critical infrastructure, have involved the misuse of the Smart Install protocol".

"We will produce any weapons necessary to defend our country in such a volatile region".

The US dollar jumped in a day from 54,700 rials to 58,000 rials in the open market in Tehran, local media reported.

The government will sell the U.S. dollar at a rate of 42,000 rials to all individuals and businesses.
