Rouhani: For talks, US must first remove sanctions

Iran was always ready to hold talks, “But first the US should lift all illegal, unjust and unfair sanctions,” said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a TV speech. On Monday, President Donald Trump standing next to his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron at the G-7 summit, said a meeting with Rouhani on the nuclear issue could take place in weeks “if the circumstances are right.” Rouhani also claimed. “Tehran has never wanted nuclear weapons,” adding: “We will continue to scale back our commitments under the 2015 deal if our interests are not guaranteed.”

    Iran wants sanctions removed but says nothing about his country stopping their aggression throughout the Middle East or ending their quest to destroy the State of Israel.

    They were successful in “pulling the wool over the eyes” of the Obama Administration and the Europeans (who have a long history of not seeing reality for what it is) but, at least at this point, Iran’s ploy doesn’t seem to be working too well with the current Administration.

    Rouhani, . . . is that an alternate spelling for the Iranian term “Bald faced liar”???

    I would not trust him any further than a blind man in a wheel chair could run to see him.

    Then I guess there will be no talks. That works for me. The al q’s are on a suicide mission if they think they will defeat Israel or the US.

    Of course US must first remove sanctions!
    These are weak sanctions, in the case of Iran real painful sanctions are required.
