TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told the United States on Tuesday to “take the first step” by lifting all sanctions against Iran , a day after US President Donald Trump said “Without the US ’s withdrawal from sanctions, we will not witness any positive development,” Rouhani said.

In a televised cabinet speech on Wednesday, Rouhani said if the incoming Joe Biden administration has the political will, Iran-US relations could be very different.

“Iran and the US can both decide and announce that they will return to conditions on January 20, 2017,” he said.

After Trump, what will Biden do about Iran?

  After Trump, what will Biden do about Iran? The incoming president must decide whether to change course - but his options might be limited.He's promised to salvage America's reputation and says he's in a hurry. "There will be no time to lose," he wrote in Foreign Affairs magazine earlier this year.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has urged the United States to take the first step towards dialogue by lifting sanctions against Iran . "Without this step, this lock will not be unlocked," Mr Rouhani said. He spoke a day after President Donald Trump said he was open to a meeting if the circumstances were

US President Donald Trump has said that he is willing to meet with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani with no preconditions. Last week, Trump threatened Rouhani with “CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE ,” in a

“This can be a great solution to a large number of issues and completely change the path and conditions.”

However, Rouhani outlined what Iran would expect of future President Biden.

“We hope that in its first steps, the next US administration will explicitly condemn Trump’s policies on Iran,” the president said, calling the policies “anti-human rights and terroristic”.

He also said a Biden administration would have to “make up for the incorrect policies” of his predecessor without further elaborating.

The president said Iran’s policy has always been clear and is based on “commitment for commitment, action for action, de-escalation for de-escalation, and respect for respect”.

In May 2018, Trump unilaterally withdrew from a landmark nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers in 2015 and imposed harsh economic sanctions on Tehran.

One year on, grief and anger over Iran protest crackdown

  One year on, grief and anger over Iran protest crackdown One year on, grief and anger over Iran protest crackdownThe protests, of a magnitude rarely seen in Iran following the 1979 Islamic Revolution and the biggest since 2009 rallies over a disputed election, erupted nationwide in November 2019 after a sudden hike in fuel prices.

A return to the 2015 nuclear deal is the key to future talks between the US and Iran , an adviser to President Hassan Rouhani said. This included a warning to President Rouhani that Iran could face “CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER

US President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani have traded hostile warnings, amid rising tensions between the two countries. Mr Trump tweeted Iran would "suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before " if it threatened the US .

The sanctions only intensified as Iran started battling the deadliest outbreak COVID-19 pandemic of the Middle East, which has now killed nearly 50,000 people.

Iran has called the “maximum pressure” campaign of the Trump administration an instance of “economic and medical terrorism”, and has said a future US administration would have to pay compensation.

‘End of Trumpism’

The Iranian president on Wednesday also said the defeat of Trump in the US presidential elections signals that Iranians emerged victorious from an “economic war”.

“One of the great manifestations of the victory of the Iranian nation and the certain defeat of the enemy in this economic war is the end of the Trumpism era,” Rouhani said.

“This person committed the worst crimes in US history against independent nations, especially the Iranian and Palestinian nations.”

According to Rouhani, the past three years signal a new “holy defence” only second to the deadly eight-year Iran-Iraq War that ended in 1988.

In both wars, he said, Iran stood alone while foes supported from both the West and the east attacked.

Rouhani’s remarks come one day after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran will resist and choose the path of “defusing sanctions and overcoming them” until a time when countries that target Iran come to the realisation that sanctions are useless.

“We tried the path of lifting sanctions once and negotiated for years, but it led to no results,” Khamenei said.

“If we can overcome sanctions through hard work and innovation and taking problems as they come, and the other side sees that sanctions are ineffective, they will gradually stop sanctioning.”

Iran's Rouhani accuses 'mercenary' Israel of scientist assassination .
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani Saturday accused arch-foe Israel of acting as a "mercenary" for the US, blaming the Jewish state for assassinating one of Tehran's most prominent nuclear scientists. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was "martyred" after being seriously wounded when assailants targeted his car and engaged in a gunfight with his bodyguards outside the capital Tehran on Friday, according to Iran's defence ministry. "Once again, the wicked hands of the global arrogance, with the usurper Zionist regime as the mercenary, were stained with the blood of a son of this nation," Rouhani said in a statement on his official website.
