Rouhani: World’s re­sis­tance against Trump shows trust in Iran

Iran Daily - - National -

“Un­doubt­edly, if the es­tab­lish­ment and the fu­ture of the coun­try were not strong, more than 190 coun­tries would not stand against Trump, and the re­sis­tance is a sign of the world’s trust in the es­tab­lish­ment, na­tion and the gov­ern­ment,” Rouhani said.

Most coun­tries in the world, es­pe­cially the sig­na­to­ries of the 2015 Iran nu­clear deal, have fre­quently sup­ported the agree­ment and op­posed de­mands by US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to kill the deal.

In Jan­uary, the US pres­i­dent re­luc­tantly agreed to waive sanc­tions against Iran that were lifted as part of the land­mark deal, but said it would be the last time he is­sued such a waiver un­less con­di­tions were met.

Trump said he wanted Amer­ica’s Euro­pean al­lies to use the 120-day pe­riod be­fore sanc­tions re­lief again came up for re­newal, to agree to tougher mea­sures and new con­di­tions, oth­er­wise Wash­ing­ton would pull out of the deal.

The agree­ment, reached be­tween Iran and the P5+1 coun­tries – the US, the UK, France, China, Rus­sia and Ger­many – puts lim­i­ta­tions on parts of Iran’s nu­clear pro­gram in ex­change for re­mov­ing all nu­clear-re­lated sanc­tions.
