Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal was "illegal", and said the ball was "in Europe's court" in terms of maintaining ties with Tehran.

"The Islamic Republic has never sought tension in the region and does not want any trouble in global waterways, but it will not easily give up on its rights to export oil,” Rouhani said on his official website.
