President Donald Trump says he's reached a decision on whether to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal - but he won't say what it is.
Rouhani pointed to the accusations by US President Donald Trump's administration that Iran does not abide by the JCPOA and said, "Under this agreement, the only observatory body is the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), whose inspectors provide reports on a quarterly basis, and no other authority is entitled to talk about Iran's compliance or non-compliance".
Trump has said there will be a "dramatic" adjustment to how the United States treats the deal by next month, when according to USA law, the United States just recertify Iranian adherence to the deal.
U.S. officials have sent mixed signals about the nuclear agreement hammered out between Iran and six major powers - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States - under which Tehran agreed to restrict its nuclear programme in return for western countries loosening economic sanctions.
It was significant that Netanyahu was at the United Nations for Trump's first address to the General Assembly, said Huckabee, and shows the depth of their friendship.
Trump's always been critical of the nuclear deal. But the administration stressed at the time that the decision is not indicative of US policy on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). "There's a clear American interest, which was conveyed to me explicitly, about the desire to fix the problems in the agreement", Netanyahu said, as cited by Haaretz.
Tillerson said Iran continues to prop up the "horrible" regime of Syria's Bashar al-Assad, carry out banned missile tests and harass shipping in the Gulf.
You look around you and you will see those contributions every day - in the food you eat, the water you drink, the medicines you take, the cars you drive, the cell phones you use, and in so many other ways that are transforming our world. The nuclear deal is a closed one, he told reporters through an interpreter on Wednesday.
Responding to Trump's comments, French President Emmanuel Macron told the UN General Assembly that "to reject [the deal] now without proposing anything else would be a grave error, and not respecting it would be irresponsible".
"We already have one potential nuclear crisis".

She said that with tensions growing between the USA and North Korea over the North's nuclear program, the need for the treaty is even greater. "It was a very, very matter of fact exchange about how we see this agreement very differently".
"The option that we say we have at our disposal. will never be going towards nuclear weapons", Rouhani said.
"Powerful people in this room under the guidance of the United Nations can solve many of these vicious and complex problems", said Mr. Trump, but noted that the United Nations "can be a much more accountable and effective advocate for human dignity and freedom around the world".
"We can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building unsafe missiles", Trump said.
Zarif, who had a friendly, collegial relationship with former Secretary of State John Kerry while they negotiated the nuclear deal, was quick to denounce Trump's speech.
He said any riposte from Iran would come "quite swiftly" and "probably within a week", adding that "if the U.S. wants to increase tensions, it will see the reaction from Iran".
Trump coupled Iran and North Korea as rogue regimes threatening stability worldwide.
Until the matter was resolved the United States would fulfil its commitments, he said.
Trump called Iran's government a "corrupt dictatorship" and accused the state of supporting terrorism.
