Iran to not sign any nuke deal, if sanctions not lifted immediately (UPDATE 2)
Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr. 9
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
Iran will not sign any nuclear agreement with the P5+1 group, if all the economic sanctions are not lifted on the first day after the deal signed, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said.
Rouhani said that the Iranian nation stood over 14 years against the excessive demands of the world powers and safeguarded its peaceful nuclear rights.
Commenting on the results of the talks with the P5+1(the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) group, Rouhani said that as the US president Barack Obama confessed, Iranian people showed that they never give up to pressure, sanctions.
"Today moderation, negotiation logic, peace and stability overcame extremism, violence and sanctions," Rouhani said addressing the participants of the National Nuclear Technology Day ceremony in Tehran, Iranian state-run IRINN TV reported live on April 9.
Iran does not follow to defeat someone in the nuclear negotiations, Rouhani said, adding talks with a win-lose outcome will not be permanent.
All the parts as well as entire world and the region would benefit a win-win deal, something that Iran is pursuing, Rouhani underlined.
The Iranian president further said that the P5+1 claims victory, saying they closed Iran's path to making nuclear weapon, but Iran never was pursuing to make nuclear weapon in the past and will not in the future.
"If you are really following this goal you are winner already, but if you want to prevent Iran's scientific development you are looser," Rouhani said.
President Rouhani also praised the country's nuclear negotiators.
Iran and the 5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) reached a framework agreement after eight days of intensive talks in Lausanne over the Islamic Republic's disputed nuclear program.
The sides have decided to strike a comprehensive deal by July 1, which would on one hand limit Tehran's nuclear activities, and on the other remove international sanctions on Iran.
