Trump supporters have spoken at NCRI events in the past, including national security adviser John Bolton, who, before taking his post at the same conference last July, told the group's members they would be ruling Iran before 2019 and their goal should be regime change, Reuters reports.

Mounting pressure from the Trump administration combined with discontent among many Iranians at the state of the economy are rattling the Islamic Republic, with little sign that its leaders have the answers, officials and analysts say.

While saying he did not speak for the USA administration, he added, "It seems to me there would be a rather happy celebration should regime change occur".

Rudy Giuliani said efforts to salvage the nuclear deal dumped by Donald Trump suggest the prime minister and other signatories want the Islamic Republic to develop a nuclear arsenal.

The fear of sanctions, which Giuliani said would be increased, has already seen major companies leave Iran despite Europe vowing to save the accord.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reiterated his country's commitment to the deal, saying Teheran will continue to implement its liabilities.

"I think we really had some substantive talks on Iran".

"If the government fails to find an immediate solution to the crisis. a snap presidential election will be inevitable in the coming months", said Tehran-based analyst Saeed Leylaz.

"Washington's plan reflects their stupidity because they do not know that the Islamic republic is nothing but the Iranian nation and these two can not be separated", he made the remarks at a ceremony at Imam Hussein University in the capital Tehran.
