US 'Warmongering' Against Iran Will Fail Says Hassan Rouhani

US 'Warmongering' Against Iran Will Fail Says Hassan Rouhani

Iran said on Wednesday Washington should distance itself from "warmongers" after the resignation of hawkish White House National Security Adviser John Bolton, and Tehran stood by its demand that sanctions be lifted before any talks.

"This agreement must include a specific, rigorous and permanent inspection mechanism for all sites, including military sites, in Iran with a mechanism to re-impose sanctions quickly and effectively in the event of Iran's violation of the agreement", he said.

And that relates to some criticism that I heard all day today, is that Bolton tries to persuade the president, rather than present options that all of the agencies have, as the National Security Council is created to do.

Washington should give up its policy of aggression toward Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said.

"I would say Secretary Pompeo and myself and the president are completely aligned on our maximum pressure campaign". He has also long called for pre-emptive strikes on Tehran to destroy its nuclear programme.

On Wednesday, Bloomberg reported that during a White House meeting on Monday, Trump discussed the idea of easing sanctions on Iran to secure a meeting with Rouhani on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly later this month.

Rouhani had set the same condition for meeting with Trump at least twice before, however, he retreated from his readiness to negotiate on September 3 and said: "Our policies are determined by the leader of Iran [Khamenei] and there is no difference in Iran over national issues".

According to PressTV. He highlighted the peaceful utilization of nuclear technology as Iran's principle, adding that if the remaining signatories to the JCPOA "fulfill their commitments, we will do the same, and if they violate it, we will also do so".

Gen. Mohsen Rezaee, a commander in the powerful Revolutionary Guard and its former chief, said in a tweet: "We will not be deceived by the sacrificing of Bolton".

"But the likelihood of a meeting has gone up because one of its main detractors is now out of a job".

On Wednesday, Trump said Bolton had been a "disaster" on North Korea policy, "out of line" on Venezuela, and did not get along with important administration officials.

"The declared policy of the United States of America should be the overthrow of the mullahs' regime in Tehran", Bolton told a cheering crowd of MEK supporters in March 2018.

Asked if he would ease crippling sanctions to help bring about a meeting with the Iranian leader, Trump replied "we will see what happens", while warning it would be "very, very dangerous" for Iran to boost its enriched uranium stockpiles. Trump reimposed a near-total embargo on the Iranian economy past year and endorsed a "maximum pressure" campaign to isolate Iran's leadership and force it to negotiate a stricter bargain. In the past Bolton had proposed using military force to overthrow the country's ruling dynasty.

"Whether or not the American policy of extremism will change depends on the various factors that influence the U.S. foreign policy", Ravanchi said of Bolton's ouster.

"Whether it actually does or whether Bolton's view was more deeply entrenched in United States thinking on this matter is yet to be seen".
