Rouhani: US anti-Iran sanctions, crime against humanity

Tehran, June 19, IRNA – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the sprit and the essence of the July 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six other countries, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actions (JCPOA), which was to increase Iran's trade and economic exchange with the world has been seriously damaged by other parties.

President Rouhani made the remarks during the Wednesday session of his cabinet in Tehran.

Referring to the June 13 visit of the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Tehran, the president described it as fruitful and valuable.

As he said, developments in Iran and the region during the past week have been of prime importance.

Abe, at the head of a high-ranking delegation, visited Tehran a week ago. Reportedly, he was carrying a message from US President Donald Trump.

In Tehran, he held talks with top Iranian officials including Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

At the meeting with Abe, the Leader said Iran will not hold talks with the United States because President Donald Trump is not worth it.

Trump withdrew unilaterally from the Iran Deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
