Vienna talks show Iran’s high power/ Today the world has accepted that there is no other way but to reach an agreement with Iran, lift sanctions/ Trump’s economic war was aimed at country’s collapse, overthrowing the system
Referring to the talks in Vienna aimed at reviving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the President said, "The Vienna talks show Iran's high power and today, the world has accepted that there is no other way but to reach an agreement with Iran and lift sanctions, and this is a great success for the Iranian nation."
Speaking on Monday in a meeting with a group of economic executives, Dr Hassan Rouhani stated that the purpose of Trump's economic war against the Iranian nation was the collapse of the country and overthrow of the system, saying, "Today, with the resistance of the nation and the Supreme Leader's guidance and efforts made, the entire world and the United States itself acknowledge the unfruitfulness of the economic war".
The president said, "When we wanted to sign a contract to buy the COVID vaccine, we faced another problem, and that was the unimaginable cruelty of the world, especially the United States, which happened during the previous administration and continues in the current one as well".
"We never imagined that the government would want to obstruct other government's efforts to protect its citizens from diseases such as COVID," he said.
Dr Rouhani added, "At some point in 2011 and 2012, the Americans and the West decided to put pressure on Iran to take us to the negotiation table, but during the economic war we saw in the last three years, we saw that the goal was not to persuade Iran to negotiate, but to collapse the economy and subsequently overthrowing the Islamic Republic".
Stating that in the difficult conditions in the country's economy, the economic sector has been at the forefront, Dr Rouhani said, "If we want our Iran to progress, we must improve the scientific and economic position of the country".
In another part of his speech, the President pointed out that the Government of Prudence and Hope has achieved very brilliant victories in the international arena, which are less advertised for political reasons, saying, "Dr Mosaddeq's unforgettable victory in the international stage was that in response to Britain's complaint, The Hague stated that it had no jurisdiction to hear the complaint".
The President added, "In the Government of Prudence and Hope, we filed a lawsuit against the United States at least twice in the International Court of Justice in The Hague. In both cases, despite extensive efforts and serious opposition from the United States, the court declared that it had jurisdiction over these complaints".
"Two times at the United Nations on the arms embargo on Iran, as well as the US request for the automatic return of sanctions, we were able to defeat them, which has not happened much in the history," he said.
Dr Rouhani further stated, "Today, we are at a very important juncture; The coming election is a very crucial event for the country and it is very important who will take office, and as a result, how he thinks about the economy, foreign policy, regional issues and international issues".
The President emphasised, "No one should be indifferent to the elections and their importance, and we should all prepare ourselves for a healthy and free election and have a decisive presence in the elections, because these elections are very important for all of us and for the region and the world".
