Iranian President Hassan Rouhani vows that Iran will not cave to the pressure from US sanctions despite how devastating they’ve been up to this point; The White House has vowed even stronger sanctions in 2020; Rouhani: We will finally get the enemy to sit at the negotiating table someday, like before.
On Sunday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani publicly announced that Iran will not cave to any pressure from US sanctions despite the crippling effects they’ve had on Iran’s economy thus far. These devastating sanctions from the US were implemented after the US withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran Nuclear Deal, in May of 2018.
As tensions have continued to grow between Iran and the United States, President Donald Trump has made it clear that as long as the regime remains as is, there will be zero negotiation. Rouhani stated on Sunday, “We will never go to the negotiation table in a position of weakness… We will finally get the enemy to sit at the negotiating table someday, like before.”
Rouhani would even have the audacity to state that, “It is clear to the entire world that peace and stability in this region are impossible without a powerful and great country like Iran.” The irony, of course, is that Iran is the world’s number one sponsor of terror. Iran is building its terror proxies throughout the Middle East on a daily basis in order to annihilate the Jewish State. What has come out of Iran’s regime of terror is anything but peaceful.
On top of the crippling US sanctions, Iran had been dealing with nationwide protests for months as a result of the corrupt regime. Throughout those protests, several hundred civilians were killed and the nation was and is routinely suppressed. The regime even shut down the internet throughout the country on more than one occasion to prevent the people from revealing to the world what was taking place.
