Iran not to leave negotiation table: President Raisi

Semnan, IRNA - President Ebrahim Raisi in Semnan on Thursday emphasized that Iran would pursue a policy of simultaneous lifting and neutralization of sanctions, saying that the people of Iran appreciate the smart and authoritative actions of the country's border guards.

Raisi made the remarks in Semnan in the ceremony of the National Day of Fighting Against Global Arrogance, the capital city of Semnan Province, east of Tehran.

The history of US' animosity with Iranian people is not 40 years; it is more than 70 years; the difference is that in the first 30 years, the United States succeeded in plundering the interests of the Iranian people by a coup and supporting the dictators, but in the 43 years after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the Iranian nation has won the battle against the endless hostilities of the US, Raisi said.

Referring to the date of the start of negotiations on the lifting of the oppressive sanctions against the Iranians, the President said that the negotiation is a result-oriented one and Iran will not fall short of the rightful demand of the Iranian people to lift the oppressive sanctions.

Raisi added that as previously stated, Iran will not leave the negotiating table but will stand against the excessive demands that lead to the loss of the interests of the Iranian people.

Emphasizing that Iran will not retreat from the interests of the Iranian nation in any way, he added that at the same time, the country will pursue the lifting of sanctions and the neutralization of sanctions.
