“The majority of UN member states, including the 120 Non-Aligned movement (NAM) members, have dismissed the sanctions against Iran as illegitimate, illegal and politically motivated,” Dr.Rouhani said during a speech at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek on Friday.
“These sanctions are an uncivilized move and a dangerous precedent [and they are] aimed at disrupting the trend of Iran’s development [and have] targeted the ordinary and innocent [Iranian] citizens mercilessly,” he added.
Dr.Hassan Rouhani said that the Islamic Republic of Iran deems disarmament and nuclear non-proliferation necessary for international peace and stability, reiterating that Tehran is committed to the Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) based on its “legal commitments, religious and moral tenets and strategic considerations.”
President further called for political will, mutual respect, and confidence-building measures to resolve the West’s nuclear dispute with Iran.
He said that the Islamic Republic insists on the “inalienable right of all NPT member states to enjoy peaceful nuclear technology.”
President Rouhani says Russia’s plan for placing the Syrian chemical weapons under international control and Syria's response to the proposed plan inspire hope for avoiding war.
