Rouhani: new sanctions against Iran violate nuclear accord
New U.S. economic sanctions imposed against Iran contravened the country's nuclear accord with world powers, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani told a government session on Wednesday.
“Surely, if the Americans seek to apply sanctions against us under whatever title or pretext, the great nation of Iran would aptly respond to them,” PressTV cited Rouhani as saying.
The US is currently trampling upon many of its obligations, Rouhani said, making a reference to Washington going against the Paris climate deal and the rapprochement with Cuba.
“This shows that the US cannot be a promoter of human rights, legal positivism, stability, and security in the world. A party, which is not stable itself, does not respect laws and regulations, and does not honor its own signature, cannot invite others to stability, security, and calm,” the Iranian chief executive concluded.
