( CNN) Iran's missile program is not in breach of its nuclear bargain and will continue despite objections from the United States, President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday.

Earlier this month, US President Donald Trump announcedthat he would no longer induce regular certifications that the lifting of sanctions under the deal — known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action( JCPoA) — had been in US interests.

The agreement was negotiated in 2015 with the P5 +1 powers and the European union. The P5 +1 includes Germany and the permanent members of the UN Security Council: the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain.
