Iran to stay in nuclear deal if it is beneficial: Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani

It is regretful that some regional Arab countries remained silent over the violence against people who want to claim legitimate rights to their own occupied lands, Rouhani said at a government meeting on Wednesday.

Israeli military forces killed over 60 Palestinians and wounded over 2,700 more on Monday during anti-occupation protests near the fence separating Gaza from the occupied territories, at a time when Israeli and American officials were attending the inauguration of the new U.S. embassy in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds. "Therefore, this holy land can not be separated from the 1.5 billion population of Muslims of the world by political games".

"The Palestinian people have resisted [Israeli aggression] for 70 years, and will continue to do so", Rouhani said. "The Zionist regime is not committed to morality and even to worldwide regulations, and understands only force", Rouhani said addressing the cabinet, as quoted by the Tasnim news agency.

Without a doubt, this year's Quds Day will be held more gloriously in Iran and other countries and the world will show the Zionist Regime and the White House leaders that they have chosen the wrong path and, God-willing, this will promote more unity and integrity in the World of Islam.

Under the accord struck between Iran and six other nations including the United States under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, Tehran agreed to curb its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday his country will remain in an global deal on Tehran's nuclear development if it fully benefits from the pact.

"They think they can make the Iranian nation surrender by putting pressures on Iran, by sanctions and even threats of war... Based on the resolutions of the United Nations, Iran's enrichment was considered illegal, which we do not accept". But if we compare JCPOA's existence and non-existence, it will become clear what Iranian nation has done", he said, adding, "after the implementation of the JCPOA, the United States unilaterally withdrew from it.

"This is because all know that Iran is a country, which treads down the path of peace and acts in line with global regulations", he explained, noting that "today, the U.S. should come under pressure as a country going against its promises and acting in contravention of regulations".

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani called for imposing pressure on the USA for violating the nuclear deal reached between Tehran and the six world powers in 2015.
