Speaking at a ceremony marking Tabriz 2018 event on Wednesday, Dr Hassan Rouhani said: "With the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), we eliminated the accusations against Iranian nation".

He continued: "If the JCPOA was bad and dangerous, why did you sign it? You are a businessman and don't know anything about law. Before deciding on the future of the JCPOA, say did you live up to your commitments?"

He also said: "If how we view and speak with the society is correct, issues will be solved and the world will change".

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also went on to say: "Those who have brought misery for the region are greedy for the wealth of the region".

He continued: "By belittling Arab countries, they tell them "if you don't pay money, we will leave the region". Leave! Our region will be safer with you gone".

"Did you bring security to the region by selling arms to Saudi Arabia and pouring bombs on the people of Yemen?," added the President.

Stating that "We proved it to the world that Iranophobia was a lie," he continued: "The fact that you threaten banks and investors not to work with Iran is against what you pledged in the JCPOA".

"The White House must first settle its previous debts and then make a new decision," Dr Rouhani added, saying: "If the JCPOA was bad and dangerous, why did you sign it? You are a businessman and don't know anything about law".

He also said: "The current issue of today's world are politicians who don't consider the consequences and different aspects of their words".

The President continued saying: "Tourism is one of the best tools for constructive interaction with the world and reaching a common understanding".

"Tourism bridges yesterday and today to tomorrow," Rouhani continue, adding: "Tabriz will have attractions forever in the history".
