Despite the sanctions of the United States, Iran wants to stick to the nuclear agreement for the time being but expects “positive signals”. Otherwise, Tehran will continue to say goodbye to some of the commitments, Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani told the Russian agency Interfax on Saturday at a security conference in the Central Asian former Soviet republic of Tajikistan. Rouhani also expressed the hope that other countries supported peace efforts in the region.

At the same time, the Iranian president once again criticized America’s exit from the agreement and the “illegal sanctions” against its country. “This policy is a violation of the right to self-determination, which in turn is a fundamental and inviolable right of all nations,” Rouhani said. The day before, in the Central Asian former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan, he accused the United States of destabilizing the situation in the Middle East.

Rouhani did not comment on the recent tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman. The United States blames Iran for the attacks: the regime rejects the allegations. On Friday evening, after the American government, British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt blamed Iran and its Revolutionary Guards. No other country could be responsible, Hunt said.

The United States stepped out of the agreement unilaterally in May 2018. They put pressure on Iran with economic sanctions to renegotiate the agreement and, for example, to include the Iranian missile program.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in Dushanbe that there was no alternative to the agreement for a solution to the conflict over the Iranian nuclear program. “The US exit from these agreements has made implementation much more difficult. This has a negative impact on the general situation regarding non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, “said Putin.
