US sanctions against Iran are a mistake and a violation of international standards, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said amid Washington’s sanctions against a nuclear facility in Fordo.
“We should pay a specific attention to our bilateral ties in the long-run,” Mehr reported quoting him. “This is unprecedented in the history of the world, when the US seeks to punish the countries which are signatories of the UN Resolution.”
“The dissolution of JCPOA will hurt the world,” he warned. “The Islamic Republic is also committed to ensure the security of international waterways, in particular, in Oman Sea and the Persian Gulf,” Rouhani said, “Iran has recently submitted its initiative in this regard, under the title the Hormuz Peace Endeavor (HOPE), to the UN and is in talks with other countries about it.”
Iran for the fourth time refused to fulfill its obligations under a nuclear deal on November 6 and began using centrifuges to enrich uranium at a facility in Fordo, while a nuclear deal suggests that the complex in Natanz will be the only one for such purposes.
