(Persis Digest) – The Iranian President has called US efforts to impose its policies on others as increasingly dangerous, and stressed: “Unilateral sanctions will harm legitimate international trade.”
At the 18th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting on Sunday, Hassan Rouhani reiterated: “US withdrawal from the JCPOA is a prime example of this country’s unilateralism and indifference towards the international community, while the IAEA has already confirmed Iran’s compliance with its obligations under the deal for the 11th time.”
He added: “All the signatories are responsible for upholding the lifting of nuclear-related sanctions. Based on the backing of the UNSCR 2231 and Article 25 of the UN Charter, all other UN members are obligated to fully implement the JCPOA and prevent any actions that may halt this.”

Rouhani continued: “Iran has given a deadline to the remaining signatories in the JCPOA and other UN member states to guarantee all its provisions and continue their presence in the deal. The US has certainly scanned reactions to its exit from the deal and considers a lack of response as the prize of unilateralism. This is very harmful for the world community.”
Rouhani also spoke on terrorism in the world, pointing to Iran’s experiences in fighting terrorism inside Iran, and also Iraq and Syria, emphasizing: “Iran is ready to cooperate with the SCO on terrorism, extremism, separatism, and drugs.”
He explained Iran’s strategies in connecting the north and south of the country on the one hand, and its east and west on the other to optimize opportunities available in the ports of the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman, and use rail transport in Iran in order to link East Asia and Central Asia to Europe through the north-south, south-west corridors; he announced Iran’s readiness to expand international and regional ties.
