    He provided no further details concerning the content of Iran's plan, though added that the government had allocated funds to cope with possible scenarios pertaining to the nuclear agreement.

    Meanwhile, Donald Trump has warned Tehran of "severe consequences" in case the latter restarts its nuclear program.

    The exchange of threats between Washington and Tehran began after the US president made public his intention to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran and to reimpose all the sanctions that had been lifted under the deal in exchange for Iran abandoning its attempts to acquire nuclear weapons and keeping its nuclear program peaceful.
