The intention of President-elect Donald Trump to put an end to a landmark deal with Iran may not happen given that it would need the approval of other countries, an analyst told CNBC.
During his campaign, Trump pledged to scrap a deal made between President Barack Obama's administration and the Iranian government that lifts sanctions in exchange for restrictions in Iran's nuclear programme. But a full-reversal of the deal seems difficult.
"We still believe that we aren't going to see a full reversal of the deal with Iran. It's not just a US-Iran deal," Wolfango Piccoli, co-president at Teneo Intelligence, told CNBC on Wednesday.
"This is a P5 deal so there's only so much damage that can be done on the front by a new US president," he added.
