Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is under pressure from Washington and conservative forces in Tehran. Threats of revitalizing the nuclear problem actually diverge from his interests, says DW's Matthias von Hein.
Iran's parliament has voted to boost spending on ballistic missiles and the armed forces in response to recent US sanctions. The Trump administration, while sticking to Iran nuclear deal, is piling up pressure on Tehran.
Iran has complained that new US sanctions against it are an effort to sabotage its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. Tehran said it would not be drawn into a trap, but warned it would respond in a "smart" way.
