"If the United States pulls out of the agreement, but the rest of the countries stay committed - namely Britain, France, Germany, China, and Russia - then Iran would most probably stick with the commitments to the agreement," Ali Akbar Salehi said.

"I think our partners in this treaty have more to lose than we do" if the agreement falls through, Salehi was quoted as saying.

"The United States is trying to poison the business environment. It discourages big banks and companies from working with Iran," said Salehi, referring to Washington's new sanction pressures against Iran.

"It is fear-mongering. But in reality they cannot accomplish much," Salehi added.
