Rouhani's comments arrive amid an effort by his foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, to confer with representatives of other signatories to the deal in an apparent attempt to prevent the deal from completely collapsing under the weight of the US' departure.
Zarif is expected to leave Tehran for Beijing on Sunday and then head to Moscow on Monday.
"If the remaining five countries continue to abide by the agreement, Iran will remain in the deal despite the will of America", Rouhani said during a speech on state television, calling President Donald Trump's decision to pull the USA out of the agreement a "violation of morals".

Mr Rouhani has said Iran would stay committed to the deal, which Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation also signed, provided those powers could ensure Iran was protected from sanctions against key sectors of its economy such as oil.
