MNA– Trump is a businessman and doesn’t know anything about law, according to Iran’s president, calling on the US administration to live up to their commitments before deciding on the future of the JCPOA.
President Hassan Rouhani made the remarks on Wednesday during a ceremony in the East Azarbaijan province to mark the selection of Tabriz as the 2018 tourism capital of the Islamic tourism by the OIC member states.
Rouhani pointed out “with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), we eliminated the accusations against Iranian nation.”
Stating that “we proved it to the world that Iranophobia was a lie,” he continued “the fact that you threaten banks and investors not to work with Iran is against what you pledged in the JCPOA.”
Iranian president went on to criticize the US President Trump’s rhetorics saying “if the JCPOA was bad and dangerous, why did you sign it? You (Trump) are a businessman and don’t know anything about law. Before deciding on the future of the JCPOA, say did you live up to your commitments?”
“The White House must first settle its previous debts and then make a new decision,” the Iranian president added.
He also said “the current problem of today’s world are politicians who don’t consider the consequences and different aspects of their words.”
The Iranian president went on to stress that the West is seeking to overrun the natural resources of the Arab world, saying that the Western powers have their eyes on the bank accounts of the Arab countries which are full of petro dollars.
He continued “by belittling Arab countries, they tell them if you don’t pay money, we will leave the region.
“Leave! Our region will be safer with you gone” President Rouhani asserted.
“Did you bring security to the region by selling arms to Saudi Arabia and pouring bombs on the people of Yemen?,” added the Iranian president asked the Western leaders.
Rouhani touched upon the appalling situation of Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine as some parts of Islamic world saying “if how we view and speak with the society is correct, issues will be solved and the world will change.”
