NEW YORK (Reuters) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday he was open to discuss small changes, additions or amendments to a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six major powers if the United States lifted sanctions imposed on the Islamic republic.

"I will be open to discuss small changes, additions or amendments to nuclear deal if sanctions were taken away," Rouhani told media in New York.

U.S. President Donald Trump exited the deal last year and reimposed and toughened sanctions on Iran that were lifted under the pact in return for curbing its nuclear programme.
