Rouhani: Accepting Iran’s Inalienable Nuclear Right Easiest Way to Resolve Issue

Local Editor

Stressing that it is Iran’s inalienable right to have peaceful nuclear power, President Sheikh Hasan Rouhani told the United Nation General Assembly that nuclear weapons have no place in the Islamic Republic.

In remarks widely watched, especially by Washington, Rouhani said his country poses “absolutely no threat to the world”, noting that accepting Iran’s right to have nuclear power is the “easiest way to resolve the issue”.

He hoped that the United States “will refrain from following the short-sighted interest of warmongering pressure groups”, signaling that “we can arrive at a framework to manage our differences”.

On the other hand, the Iranian president stressed it is “an illusion, and extremely unrealistic, to presume that the peaceful nature of the nuclear program of Iran could be ensured through impeding the program via illegitimate pressures”.

“Iran seeks to resolve problems, not to create them. There is no issue or dossier that cannot be resolved through reliance on hope and prudent moderation, mutual respect, and rejection of violence and extremism”, Rouhani said.

Concerning the foreign policy, the newly elected president said: “the Islamic Republic, as a regional power, will act responsibly with regard to regional and international security, and is willing and prepared to cooperate in these fields, bilaterally as well as multilaterally, with other responsible actors”.

Talking about the Syrian crisis, he assured that the issue can’t be solved through military action.

“The human tragedy in Syria represents a painful example of catastrophic spread of violence and extremism in our region. From the very outset of the crisis and when some regional and international actors helped to militarize the situation through infusion of arms and intelligence into the country and active support of extremist groups, we emphasized that there was no military solution to the Syrian crisis”.
