STOCKHOLM (AP) — Iran's foreign minister says the nuclear deal reached last year with world powers can't be renegotiated despite Republican presidential contender Donald Trump's pledge to do so if elected.
After a lecture in Stockholm on Wednesday, Mohammad Javad Zarif said the deal "is not an Iran-U.S. agreement for the Republican front-runner or anybody else to renegotiate. It's an international understanding annexed to a Security Council resolution."
Trump has denounced the deal and said he'd seek to renegotiate it if elected president. Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has said she supports the agreement to rein in Iran's nuclear program, which was endorsed by the U.N. Security Council.
It's not possible "to renegotiate a text that is annexed" to such a resolution, Zarif said.

Ummm... Yeaa Donald, you seem to be not having so much luck with international cooperation in many of your policy positions. First off good luck with actually getting Iran to sit down and negotiate this, and second off good luck with getting the international community behind this, because after-all this deal was internationally struck among the P5+1 partners.
