TEHRAN, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday the 2015 international nuclear agreement is "alive and well" after Donald Trump's term ends as president of the United States, and the new U.S. government must fulfill its commitments for Tehran to fulfill its own.

"The White House residents of today must return to the law, international regulations and resolutions, including UN Resolution 2231," Rouhani said in a cabinet meeting.

Rouhani emphasized that if the new U.S. government acts according to its commitments, Tehran will fulfill its commitments.

Iran is ready to "very quickly" solve the existing issues if the U.S. government shows political will sincerely, he added.

Rouhani said that during the four years of Trump's rule, Iran suffered "sanctions, economic war and economic terrorism."

Pointing to the Trump administration's foreign policy, Rouhani stressed "political isolation" as part of the outgoing president's legacy, and predicted "it will take a long time" before Washington recovers its previous position.

Rouhani noted Trump's government unsuccessfully raised the JCPOA question on four occasions at international organizations to undermine the nuclear deal and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)'s Resolution 2231.
