Political leaders around the world have weighed in on US President Donald Trump's decision to decertify the nuclear deal with Iran.

Officials in the US and Europe, as well as in the Middle East, have both praised and criticised the president's strategy on the international nuclear agreement.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated that, "Today the United States is more than ever opposed to the nuclear deal and more than ever against the Iranian people."

In a written statement, the Islamic Republican of Iran proclaimed Mr Trump's action "proves once again that the United States is not a reliable negotiating partner".

The European Union's Federica Mogherini said the current deal is "working and delivering", adding that the rest of the world would work to preserve the agreement.

The foreign affairs policy-maker also criticised Mr Trump's unilateral action, contending the deal is not a domestic issue and is not in the hands of any one president to terminate.

British Prime Minister Theresa May released a joint statement with France's Emmanuel Macron and Germany's Angela Merkel, saying they are "concerned by the possible implications".

"We stand committed to the [deal] and its full implementation by all sides", they wrote, adding that it "is in our shared national security interest".

"We look to Iran to engage in constructive dialogue to stop de-stabilising actions and work towards negotiated solutions," the statement said.

In a statement, the Russian foreign ministry stressed on the "inadmissibility of using aggressive and threatening rhetoric in international relations", saying Moscow "remains committed" to the deal.

The statement added that "there can be no question of any resumption of sanctions by the UN Security Council".
