TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – President of Iran Hassan Rouhani said the enemies have no choice but to surrender to the Iranian nation’s resolve.
“The enemies and the opponents of the Iranian nation have no option but to surrender to the nation’s resolve,” Rouhani said in a weekly cabinet session on Wednesday, adding that the adversaries have been accelerating efforts to enter talks with the Islamic Republic.
“While the solution that they (enemies) offer might be unacceptable to us, the fact that everybody is confident that people of Iran are successful and would not give in is an important issue that is very palpable today,” the president stated.
It has become clear that the US’ economic pressures have not been confined to the Iranian nation, Rouhani added, stating, “In the four-party summit of Iran, Malaysia, Turkey and Qatar, we saw that other countries are also facing problems in interaction with the US.”
He also emphasized that all countries, including the participants in the recent KL Summit, hold the US accountable for the pressures on the Iranian nation.
Highlighting Iran’s commitment to the 2015 nuclear deal and its contribution to regional and international peace, stability and security, the president said the other side has violated its commitments.
Iran is still ready for talks in case the JCPOA parties are determined to fulfill their commitments and intend to make up for the past, Rouhani went on to say.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, US, Britain, France, and Germany) on July 14, 2015, reached a conclusion over the text of the 2015 nuclear deal.
The accord took effect in January 2016 and was supposed to terminate all nuclear-related sanctions against Iran all at once, but its implementation was hampered by the US policies and its eventual withdrawal from the deal.
On May 8, 2018, US President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the nuclear accord.
Following the US withdrawal, Iran and the remaining parties launched talks to save the accord.
However, the EU’s failure of ensure Iran’s economic interests forced Tehran to stop honoring certain commitments under JCPOA in May 2019.
