Tehran (AFP)

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that Tehran would quit a key nuclear deal unless European signatories offered solid guarantees that trade relations would continue after the US withdrew.

Addressing Iran's government in a televised speech, Khamenei said: "If you don't succeed in obtaining a definitive guarantee -- and I really doubt that you can -- at that moment, we cannot continue like this."
