Iran’s president said he needs guarantees that the US won’t walk away again from a nuclear deal as a condition for his country to enter into one.

President Ebrahim Raisi, speaking through a translator in a “60 Minutes” interview aired Sunday, said Iran is willing to enter what he called a “good deal and fair deal” but harbors doubts after former US President Donald Trump exited the last pact.
