Rouhani says US ‘faces defeat’ as its attempt to reimpose UN sanctions on Iran met with international opposition


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has expressed confidence that Washington’s bid to unilaterally reimpose UN sanctions on his nation will fail, noting that even US allies oppose the choice.

“America is approaching a sure defeat in its sanctions transfer … It confronted defeat and damaging response from the worldwide neighborhood. We are going to by no means yield to US strain and Iran will give a crushing response to America’s bullying,” the Iranian chief mentioned on Sunday. The truth that Washington’s European companions have reacted negatively to the unilateral transfer reveals that “American strain within the political and authorized sectors has failed,” he added.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo introduced on Saturday that worldwide sanctions on Iran are “snapping again,” however even Washington’s closest allies have said that they won’t abandon their commitments below the 2015 Joint Complete Plan of Motion (JCPOA), which dropped UN sanctions in trade for tighter controls on Tehran’s nuclear program. It was signed by China, France, Germany, Iran, the UK and the US, however Washington unilaterally exited the deal in 2018.

The overseas ministers of France, Germany and the UK mentioned in a press release that the US is not a signatory of the JCPOA and due to this fact has no authorized authority to set off the “snapback” sanctions. The ministers burdened that they “have labored tirelessly to protect the nuclear settlement and stay dedicated to take action.”

Nonetheless, Washington seems to have left little room for negotiation. Pompeo mentioned throughout Saturday’s announcement that any nation that refuses to adjust to the unilaterally-imposed sanctions will face “penalties.” 

Echoing earlier feedback from Iran’s Overseas Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Rouhani vowed that Tehran would “by no means yield to US strain” and would ship a “crushing response to America’s bullying.” 

Relations between the 2 international locations have plummeted because the Trump administration exited the nuclear deal two years in the past. Since then, rising tensions have led to quite a few provocations, together with the US assassination of Iranian Common Qasem Soleimani. Tehran retaliated with missile strikes in opposition to a number of navy installations in Iraq that housed US troops.
