Iranian President: Nuclear deal impossible until US lifts sanctions


To return to the discussion of the Iranian nuclear program at the international level, the United States will have to lift sanctions from Tehran. The Islamic Republic refuses to negotiate with Washington under pressure.


This statement was made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at a press conference held on February 16. This was reported by the Iranian news agency IRNA.

President Rowhani said:

If the United States returns to the nuclear agreement and lifts sanctions, they can negotiate within the 5 + 1 group. Until this happens, there will be no way to establish contact.

He had in mind a negotiating group comprising five permanent members of the UN Security Council (Russia, the United States, Britain, France and the PRC) and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Although Iran successfully withstands sanctions pressure, and this is confirmed by economic indicators, Rouhani believes that Tehran needs to establish normal relations with the United States and other countries and jointly achieve stability in the Middle East.

Iran announced its withdrawal from the nuclear deal on January 5, more than six months after Donald Trump did the same.

    Americans never keep their word. It seems to me that it's time for Iran to send everyone to hell and think about its security.

        And you thought about it. The Russian Federation needs this deal or not. What will happen if Iran comes to an agreement with the USA and they really lift the sanctions. Or if Iran creates the same nuclear weapons. Everything is not so clear. For me, it is so necessary that they continue to be in conflict, and that there is no smell of nuclear weapons in Iran.

          I agree with you .. the more countries that possess nuclear weapons, the more likely it is to be used ..

            But just if they continue to be in conflict with the United States, then sooner or later they will definitely have nuclear weapons.
            I’m not talking about Israel, there will be no peace with them for sure. But with the United States - there is a chance. Small as the Israeli lobby is very strong.

              Iranian President: Nuclear deal impossible until US lifts sanctions
              I’m for Iran .. for now. we'll see. Eun-shuganul trump ... and he pulled his tail gone .. this is an example of INDEPENDENCE. technologies will not appear today or tomorrow, therefore, it is better to negotiate on the shore ... why, by the way, Israel is not invited to a conversation? they have “no matter how” nuclear weapons, but if necessary, they will use them “why are the States not digging into Israel?”

          And what should happen if Iran has nuclear weapons. In Pakistan and North. Korea has nuclear weapons, and that they used it somewhere? To date, only the United States bombed the civilian population. If nuclear weapons appear in Iran, then there will be no chance for Israel to destroy Iran.
          Iranian bases in Syria serve the same purpose. To retaliate against Israel. Iran will not start the war against Israel first.

            When there is nuclear weapon and what is important means of their delivery, you need to understand who controls it. Take the country 4-4. Now they don’t have it, as a result of the Yanyk’s coup, they removed it, all the scum and marginals with certificates from the psychiatric hospital came to power. Where is the guarantee that it would not be applied in the Donbas or somewhere else? No guarantees. Iran is no exception. It seems so far there are more or less adequate people, but if real radicals get power at the helm? The fewer countries in the world it has, the more likely it will not be applied.

              You lose sight of the fact that the country 404 is governed by representatives of the same ethnic group as Israel. If you think that the Jews who rule Ukraine are capable of using nuclear weapons in the Donbass, then why are you sure that the Jews in power in Israel will not use it in Iran?
              Do not believe the forum users from Israel about the evil ayatollahs of Iran. This is just propaganda.
              The fewer countries in the world it has, the more likely it will not be applied.

              I agree with this statement, although there is an opinion that nuclear weapons are deterrence forces.
              Which was demonstrated by the example of Sev. Korea. hi

          Of course, everything is not so simple. On the one hand, another nuclear power is not good for humanity, on the other hand, Iran needs to somehow maintain its security. Here it is necessary to competently and carefully approach the solution of this issue.

            Here I am talking about. It is better if Iran secures its territory with our anti-aircraft complexes, and to hell with it develops its missile technology within reasonable limits. Today he is our partner, but what will happen tomorrow? This must be kept in mind.

    Iran feels a clear winner in the recent conflict with the United States and claims to be one of the centers of power in a multipolar world.

    Until Iran creates its own nuclear weapons, the United States will put pressure on it, both financially and possibly military.
    Iran’s nuclear weapons will greatly reduce tension in the Middle East.
    I see no additional dangers from the presence of nuclear weapons in Iran.
    The nuclear weapons of India, Pakistan and North Korea did not pose any threat to the war, but rather reduced it.
    To date, the only guarantee against American aggression is the presence of nuclear weapons in the country.

    All right. He gave in once, then not only they don’t get off his neck, but they will also try to completely crush him.

    Iran announced its withdrawal from the nuclear deal on January 5, more than six months after Donald Trump did the same.

    Iran did not leave the JCPOA. According to paragraph 36, Iran used the right to reduce its obligations set forth in the JCPOA if any of the other participants in the JCPOA does not fully fulfill its obligations. The US withdrawal from the JCPOA and the imposition of sanctions against Iran are sufficient grounds for Iran’s actions.

    I see no additional dangers from the presence of nuclear weapons in Iran.

    This will further increase tensions in the Middle East.
    Firstly, if the Iranians used to call us and the Americans small and big Satan, then Iran repeatedly called on Israel to "erase this country from the world map." Moreover, this was not expressed by some tertiary politician, but by Ahmadinejad, who then held the post of president of Iran. Yes, now the president is more adequate, but alas, the president is not the first person there. The main one is Ayatollah. And how Iran will behave towards Israel when it receives the “bomb” is impossible to predict. But it is possible to predict that Saudi Arabia will be the next country to try to get a bomb. Iran’s geopolitical opponent in the region. So the dangers in the appearance of nuclear weapons do not see? It’s hard to say who will still try to get nuclear weapons. Maybe Turkey. And instead of one nuclear power in the region there will be at least FOUR....

    Especially in the area of ​​the Hindustan Peninsula. Two countries that over the course of 7 decades have repeatedly fought each other. And Pakistan is a Muslim country. And what will happen if radicals come to power ... This area is a smoldering fire. North Korea does not yet have a pronounced adversary against whom it is ready to use nuclear weapons. Although this does not mean at all that if the tension on the Korean peninsula rises and Trump considers that a small victorious war is possible, then he will not start it. This year, for sure, no - elections in the fall, and then how the suit will fall.

    To date, the only guarantee against American aggression is the presence of nuclear weapons in the country.

    And the presence of several nuclear weapons does not give the country a guarantee that it will not be attacked (Iran, North Korea). The only guarantee is the ability to inflict unacceptable damage on the enemy. And on this and the DPRK, and Iran NOT ABLE
