Salehi: Iran exposing US hypocrisy to the world

Tehran, May 8, IRNA – Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi announced on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic of Iran, with its clever policy, was able to effectively show the behavior of hypocrisy of the US government to the world.

“Earlier, the United States officials claimed that Iran was not the coutry of negotiation, but JCPOA showed that these are baseless claims,' said the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi on Wednesday.

Subsequently, they claimed that Iran was not bound by its obligations, while 14 reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) showed and cleared that Iran has complied with its obligations,” he said.

Referring to the US Friday's announcements against Iranian nuclear industry, the official said that “their measures, all will end in favor of Iran'.

Salehi said: 'They also spoke of Iran interfering in other countries' affairs and they wanted to link it to JCPOA , but time showed that it has got nothing to do with that.

'Iran was able to demonstrate its oppression in the general public and to set off the oppression of the American government well in the global public opinion and to show its hypocrisy,' Salehi

President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that Iran is not withdrawing from the nuclear deal, rather it is reducing its commitments to the deal and that JCPOA needs surgery.

The Iranian president said that the deal is in need of a surgery, so Iran is trying to save it, not kill it.

He made the remarks in his cabinet session on the first anniversary of the US unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

'We have never been the first to violate the commitments or to wage wars, but at the same time we have never surrendered to bullying and will not do so, and we will certainly give appropriate response to any kind aggression,' Rouhani said.

'Today we announced to the friendly countries and the five remaining signatories to the nuclear deal that we are ready for negotiations within the very framework of the JCPOA, neither a word more nor less,' he added.
