IRAN POLITICS: ’10 Trumps’ Cannot Deprive Iran of Nuclear Deal Benefits: Rouhani

IRAN POLITICS: ’10 Trumps’ Cannot Deprive Iran of Nuclear Deal Benefits: Rouhani

Rouhani went on to say that no one can possibly reverse the effects of the deal, including Trump. “If 10 other Trumps emerged in the world” and sought to roll back the benefits of the 2015 nuclear agreement, they would still ultimately fail, he added.

“In negotiating [with world powers], we showed that we are not just strong at war [but] we’re also strong at peace,” he said, adding that “political power” that Iran got as a result of the negotiations cannot just “go away.”

“The party who makes a deal will not lose anything; rather, the one who breaches a deal loses face and dignity,” Rouhani added.

IRAN POLITICS: Rouhani Goes to New York for ‘Very Important’ Talks

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said his planned meetings on JCPOA in New York are “very important,” adding there is need for clarifications which have to be made about the nuclear accord. Apart from the JCPOA, he will also talk about bilateral ties with world countries, regional issues as well as international developments including the ongoing crisis in Myanmar.

“The opponents of the JCPOA are restricted to two or three countries, including some in the US, who feel cheated. They believe that a feast has been set out but that they are deprived of going to the table and having something,” Rouhani said.

IRAN POLITICS: Senior Iranian Official to Iraqi Kurdish: Forgo Referendum for Secession

Mohsen Rezaei warns, “Iraq is a well-known nation and a member of the United Nations with international borders, and its breakup is a very wrong thing, because the disintegration of the country would be the starting point for dangerous insecurities in the region. It would have “dangerous” ramifications for the regional countries, said Rezai, who is currently the secretary of Iran’s top arbitration body, the Expediency Council, having served as the head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) all through the eight-year Iraqi war of the 1980s on Iran.”

“If the disintegration of Iraq begins, it will be extended to Syria and Turkey, and a separatist war will break up in the region, which may plunge the region to 20 years of insecurity. That is why the Islamic Republic of Iran, Turkey, Syria and Iraq are strongly opposed to a geographical change in the region.”
