(Persia Digest) – The Iranian President has said: “What the Americans are doing today is to simply exert more pressure on the Iranian people. Today, we are not the only ones angry at US policies. Even European governments and companies are also angry.”
Hassan Rouhani continued: “We are not the ones who wish for the current US Administration’s time in office to be shorter and shorter. Their European allies also tell me at meetings that this is one of their wishes.”
He pointed to repeated US messages for talks with Iran, saying: “What can we conduct talks on? They must first respect the conclusive talks we had before to lay the grounds for the next talks.”
Rouhani added: “During my time in New York recently, four world leaders mediated for me to meet with the American President. This does not require mediation and this many messages. Commit to your obligations and we will talk.”
The Iranian President reiterated: “We have no problem with talks provided the other party values its talks and commitments.”
