Iran's President Rouhani Alludes to Possible Meeting with Trump: Only If U.S. Lifts Sanctions




Published on Aug 28, 2019

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in an August 27, 2019 speech that aired on IRINN TV (Iran) that the countries, such as the United States, that have imposed sanctions and "carried out economic terrorism" against Iran must repent, return to their obligations, act in the service of the world's interests, recognize the Islamic Revolution, and reject their previous mistakes in order for Iran's conduct towards them to change. He said that circumstances would be different if the U.S. lifted all the economic sanctions and "bowed down" before the Iranian people. He said that Iran wants to resolve issues in a reasonable manner that is in keeping with its interests, and he added: "We are not interested in photo-ops. If someone wants to have his photo taken with Hassan Rouhani… It can be done with Photoshop, but a real photo is impossible, unless one day they lift all their unjust sanctions."
