President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday said it would be against the interests of Western nuclear negotiators if they failed to pursue a reasonable and quick approach towards Iran.
The President made the remarks while addressing a large gathering at Bushehr’s sports stadium in this southern provincial capital city.
As for plunging oil prices, President Rouhani said, “Western countries think they have succeeded in creating a new problem for Iran by pushing down the price of oil, but this will not put Iran under any pressure.”
‘Iran has already considered necessary ways to compensate the drop in oil prices,’ said the President stressing, “The era of threats and sanctions is over.’
Those behind the plan aimed at sending oil prices dropping to harm certain countries should know that they would regret, because they cannot forge ahead with the scheme.
If they think Iran will suffer losses as a result of falling oil prices, they have to bear in mind that other producing countries such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have more at stake than Iran.
“Iran will continue moving on the path of constructive negotiations and interaction with the world and has taken first steps towards breaking Western sanctions through the support of people and guidelines of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,’ the President noted.
He urged the Iranian nation to maintain its unity and solidarity, saying, ‘We are all from one single country, living under a single flag with a single Constitution and a single leadership. And we all seek a single objective which is national prosperity.’
