A year after its nuclear deal went into effect, Iran is increasingly concerned over the arrival of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, who has threatened to tear up the historic accord.That will ratchet up pressure on Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, who is making the nuclear deal a centerpiece of his re-election bid this year.The agreement, which lifted a wide range of international sanctions in exchange for limits on Iran's nuclear program, took effect on Jan. 16, 2016, following years of talks.That would make reneging on the deal nearly impossible and fraught with huge risks, analysts say.Iran more than doubled its oil exports to more than 2.5 million barrels per day last year, earning $29 billion in the nine months leading to Dec. 20 .Iranian officials have accused Washington of failing to abide by the spirit of the deal, including with a raft of other sanctions related to non-nuclear issues that have helped deter major Western banks from returning to Iran.
