Baku, Azerbaijan, July 26
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Even the most complicated political problems in the world are resolvable through negotiation, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said.
Addressing a gathering of people in the western province of Kordestan, Rouhani said the most important political issue in the world, which was the nuclear issue, was resolved at the negotiating table, the official website of the president reported on July 26.
"So, we will be able to resolve other issues both in the region and in the world through negotiation," Rouhani added.
"While all the world powers had insisted that Iran should not have the right to use nuclear power, the Iranian nation resisted against pressure for 12 years and proved its dignity."
"I recommend the US government and its political administrators to reshuffle their political policies. The world should know that there is just one way and that is to respect and esteem the Iranian nation," Rouhani said.
Despite the agreement reached with Iran on putting the nuclear bomb out of Tehran's reach, some US officials have signaled that military option remains on the table to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hit out on July 24 against US Secretary of State John Kerry, accusing him of threatening military action against Tehran if it fails to respect a historic nuclear deal sealed on July 14.
Kerry and other American officials "have repeatedly admitted that these threats have no effect on the will of the people of Iran and that it will change the situation to their disadvantage," Zarif underlined.
