TEHRAN, Iran Jan 13 (NNN-KUNA) -- Iran rejected on Saturday any changes to its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers after US President Donald Trump vowed to pull out of the accord in a few months if European allies did not fix its "terrible flaws."

In a statement issued by the state-run IRNA news agency, the Foreign Ministry said Iran "will not accept any change in the deal, neither now nor in future," adding that it will "not take any action beyond its commitments."

It also said Iran would not allow the deal to be linked to other issues, after Trump suggested that the sanctions relief under the deal be tied to Iran limiting its long-range ballistic missile program.

Trump on Friday extended the waivers of key economic sanctions that were lifted under the agreement limiting Iran's nuclear program. -- NNN-KUNA
