(Persia Digest) – Without referring to the sacking of White House security advisor, John Bolton, the Iranian President stated: “The US must understand that warmongers and warmongering have no benefits and must be put these and maximum pressure policies aside.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that speaking at the cabinet meeting today, Wednesday, Hassan Rouhani said: “Our path is to resist the enemy’s maximum pressures.”
Rouhani continued: “The logic of the IR of Iran is a peaceful nuclear program. In the JCPOA nuclear deal, our logic is also commitment against commitment. If they honor their obligations, so will we, and if they abrogate it, so will we.”
He stated that the IR of Iran is known as a peaceful, stable country in the world today, adding: “We have never initiated transgression and sanctions. We were not the ones to abrogate our commitments. They were.”
Rouhani was referring to the unilateral US exit from the 2015 JCPOA nuclear accord in May 2018 by President Trump.
Rouhani also pointed to the Iranian parliamentary elections in the coming months, criticizing hardliners who create difficulties for the people, saying: “Extremism and imprecise paths which lead to difficulties in society must not be pursued.”
