Iranian President Hassan Rohani says Iran remains committed to the JCPOA nuclear deal, and will fulfill its obligations with actually relevant global players and partners. Iran’s response recognizes that the US in all practical terms, is nearly expended as a former imperial power. The US clings onto information and psychological warfare, as its actual power-projection declines at a rapid pace. Rohani reminds the world that the US has repeatedly broken most international agreements it has made.
Moments after the announcement of the US withdrawal from the JCPOA, the Iran nuclear deal, by Donald Trump, Iranian President Hassan Rohani reacted, speaking of a “psychological war” led by Washington.
On the evening of May 8, Hasan Rohani, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, announced that Tehran would remain in the nuclear deal, even without the United States, which had announced, through the voice of Donald Trump, that they were withdrawing a few moments earlier.
Noting during his televised speech that the American leader had a long history of destroying international treaties, Hassan Rohani added:
“I have ordered the Foreign Minister to negotiate with the European countries, China and Russia in the coming weeks. If, at the end of this short period, we conclude, with the cooperation of the five countries, that the interests of the Iranian people are secure despite the United States and the Zionist regime … the agreement will be maintained.”
“We have been saying for forty years […] that Iran is honoring its commitments and that the United States never honors its commitments. The history of these last forty years, and even before, shows that the United States has always had a hostile attitude towards Iran and other peoples of the region,” said the Iranian president, who denounced a “psychological war” led by Washington.
